In the summer of 2016, this is what ModernEyes Eyecare + Eyewear looked like. We were in construction and anxiously awaiting completion of our new optometry practice and were excited to begin seeing patients and seeing what the future would hold for us.
Over the past few days, I’ve felt the need to open up to all of you on where we are. While we are still seeing patients in need of eyecare here and there, our office is quiet other than phone calls coming in to order contacts and reschedule...Read More
Unless you've been living under a rock for the last several weeks, you've begun to notice all the negativity, stress, and fear going around as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Here in Omaha, we are starting to see more and more effects enter each of our individual lives. We're stressed. We're fearful. We don't have the answers.
That said, we don't want this fear and stress to overwhelm us. We aim to have a healthy...Read More
I can’t believe how fast 2019 has flown by and how quickly 2020 is approaching. I'm ready for a fun year filled with eye and vision-related memes and corny 20/20 jokes. I hope you are too!2019 Rewind–The Highlights
ModernEyes Eyecare + Eyewear had a great 2019. We were able to serve over 1,100 people at the office. We donated $465 to flood relief thanks to exams, glasses, and contact lenses purchased during the two weeks following the spring flooding. I served as the Lead Optometrist for...Read More
Over the late spring and summer, we’ve made some big decisions on adding some new technology to the office, and we want to share it with you.
In the next few weeks, we will be transitioning to a new phone system that will allow us to call, text, and/or email you for appointment reminders, notify you that glasses and/or contacts are ready to be picked up and more. Even more impressive, is that you’ll...Read More
In addition to January being National Glaucoma Month, it is National Optician Month. Although glaucoma is an important eye health issue (more information can be found here from the American Optimetric Association), I’d like to focus on our amazing staff here at ModernEyes Eyecare & Eyewear.ADAM MARTINEZ Optician and Lab Technician
Let’s start with Adam! Adam has been with us since before Dr. Reed and her husband opened the office. He was an integral part of our initial frame...Read More
I can’t believe we are already through the Back-to-School Season and we are heading out of August and in to September. That means it’s almost time for football, pumpkin spice everything, campfires, and a sweet new addition to the ModernEyes Eyecare & Eyewear Family! If you’ve been in the office recently, you’ve probably noticed that I’m expecting baby #2 in just a few short weeks. Josh, Brayden (our almost 5-year-old son), and I are all anxiously awaiting baby’s arrival. Even though I’...Read More
At ModernEyes Eyewear + Eyecare, we try to stay up on the latest technology to help keep your eyes as healthy as possible, above and beyond fitting you in the best glasses or contact lenses for your personal style and lifestyle needs. We are excited to announce a new piece of technology we will be offering to all of our patients, but before we get to that I just want to point out something cool that we've offered since we...Read More
First, we have some fun, fresh new frames in for you to check out! We try to be on the lookout for new trends, styles, and frame lines you’re sure to love. One of our current favorites is 141 Eyewear. Not only do they have great styles, but they have a great...Read More
A lot has happened at the office since we posted about Pokémon and vision. If you haven’t read that post, please go check it out.
At the time of our initial post, the only thing to post pictures of was the exterior signage. So I will take you through the various different phases of construction, to give you a "behind the scenes" look, complete with pictures!Concrete and Plumbing
First, the walls were drawn out on the floor, along with the paths that some of the plumbing would follow. Some...Read More
Our outdoor sign is now fully installed! Previously the "Eyecare + Eyewear" portion had yet to be installed. We're excited to share our brand and image to passers-by on Q Street near 192nd Street. For those of you who are just finding out about our new practice, in prepration for opening, I'd like to share a few thoughts related to our name. For those Shakespeare buffs, I present the question "What's in a name?" In Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the phrase was to...Read More
We are super excited for the public’s first glimpse of our new office and image. ModernEyes is a new optometry practice, founded by myself (Dr. Kristin Reed) and my husband, Josh Reed. Our exterior signage is mostly installed and should be finished in the next day or two. We are currently waiting for our construction permits to come back so we can get the interior space built out. If all goes well, we will be ready to serve you in late summer or early fall of 2016. Be sure to check out our...Read More
