Dr. Ryan Emrick joined West Wichita Family Optometrists in 2019. He is originally from Moore, Oklahoma and attended the University of Oklahoma and Northeastern State Optometry School. He then met a wonderful Wichita-girl named Kelli who enlightened him how great Kansas is. They spent 8 years living in Emporia, KS before moving back to Wichita.
Dr. Emrick has a passion for eyecare. His mantra is to treat each patient like a member of his family, taking time to listen to all their needs and tailor his treatment and recommendations to their specific lifestyle. He enjoys seeing patients of all ages and loves getting to know his patients so he can personalize their eyecare and eyewear experience. He practices full-scope, comprehensive optometry including fitting all types of glasses, specialized contact lenses, and detection and management of diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. He really enjoys helping patients with dry eye syndrome find a personalized treatment routine to maintain an excellent quality of life.
His hobbies include being involved in church and community, watching sports, biking and spending time with wife, Kelli, their two boys, Logan and Chase.
