Wildwood Vision Specialists is celebrating their fifth year of comprehensive vision care with a family focus. “Vision care is a family affair for us,” said Dr. Christy Hayes. “We have something for everyone from 6 months to 106 years.”
Hayes and Dr. Kim Folwarski opened their business together in 2012 after graduating from the University of Missouri-St. Louis College of Optometry. Their mission is to provide compassionate, comprehensive ocular healthcare, to which they bring a special focus on ocular disease, specialty contact lenses and pediatric vision/vision therapy.
“We strive to make everyone have a great experience here, whether it’s being kind and friendly answering the phones and when they walk in the door, to treating everyone just like you treat your family members,” she said.
At Wildwood Vision Specialists, you never have to experience the dreaded air puff test. Instead, the cheerful staff offers a unique way to measure intraocular pressures without drops or air puffs. “Everyone hates the air puff machine, and it’s what makes them most nervous about the exams,” said Folwarski. “We strive to provide a comfortable, enjoyable exam for everyone.”
The doctors encourage families to schedule back-to-school eye exams for children, as vision problems can inhibit learning. They accept a wide range of vision and medical insurance plans.
“Vision is not just about seeing 20/20. Eye muscle coordination plays into seeing better,” said Dr. Folwarski. “We are focused on providing a thorough, comprehensive pediatric exam and offer vision therapy to children whose eyes do not work properly together.”
