West Wichita Family Optometrists began in 1937 with Dr. Loren Wilkins on Douglas Avenue. Much has changed since that time but our commitment to quality eye care hasn’t. Caring about our patients has always been priority one. Because of this dedication, we have become one of the largest practices in Kansas, growing through the referrals of family and friends. We remain committed to this standard of excellence.
We have two locations: one in Wichita at 1202 W. Maple, near the intersection of Maple and Seneca; and our second location is at 318 N Main in Goddard, just south of the post office. See the maps below.
Our hours are Monday-Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. (The Goddard location closes daily for lunch from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm.)
Seven full time doctors staff the clinics and are on call for medical eye emergencies.
- Dr. Jim Herndon
- Dr. Steve Schwartz
- Dr. Charles Kissling
- Dr. Mark Simon
- Dr. Eric W. Lamp
- Dr. Emily Becker
- Dr. Nick Richmond
