  • "Today my 2 year old had her first appointment here and everything was so great! Every staff member we talked to was super friendly, the playroom was great for our short wait, Dr. Fisher was so good with her and it all ended with a token machine and toy so my daughter was over the moon. I will definitely recommend this place to others and continue bringing my daughter here 😊"

Welcome to Child & Family Eyecare

Your vision affects every aspect of your life. That is why it is so important to care for your eyes. At Child & Family Eyecare in Wichita, we offer quality eye care services for the entire family. From comprehensive eye exams to treatment of eye diseases to providing prescription eyewear and contact lens exams, we have what it takes to improve your vision.


Our Team

Child & Family Eyecare is run by Dr. Patrick J. Pirotte, a knowledgeable optometrist with years of experience in his field. Dr. Pirotte and our optometry team are committed to meeting the vision care needs of the residents in our community. We understand that vision care isn’t a “one size fits all” package. For that reason, we provide our patients with the personalized attention needed to meet their unique eye care needs. Our center serves people of all ages, from infants to seniors.

What We Do

At Child & Family Eyecare, vision care is our priority. We offer the following vision care services to help you enjoy optimal sight.

Vision Exams

Even if you have good vision, it is important to schedule routine eye exams. Annual exams allow our optometrists an opportunity to monitor your vision and eye health to catch problems early. A comprehensive vision exam consists of tests for visual clarity, eye movement, eye-focus, and eye teaming. If you show any signs of refractive errors, we will prescribe corrective lenses to improve your vision.

Routine eye care is particularly essential for children as their vision is constantly changing. Vision problems can affect your child’s health, safety, and academic performance. Regular eye exams will ensure that your child is seeing as well as he or she should while growing into adolescence and adulthood.

Prescription Eyewear

After completing your eye exam, we will have a better idea of the services you need to improve your vision. If you have refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, we can prescribe eyeglasses or contacts to enhance your vision. For your convenience, we carry a wide selection of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses as well as contact lenses to meet your family’s needs.

Treatment of Eye Conditions and Diseases

In addition to testing your visual acuity, other eye exams are used to detect signs of eye conditions and diseases that don’t show symptoms in their early stages. We also treat common eye conditions like pink eye, dry eye, eye infections, and computer vision to relieve the symptoms that are impairing your vision.
