Serving Grand Island for Over 30 years

We are happy to be celebrating 31 years of service to the Grand Island area. Dr. Richard Bunger founded Family Eyecare Center in 1978, and was joined in 1985 by Dr. Mark Stines. Together, they were able to build one of the states premier eye care facilities. Built on the principals of patient care and state of the art technology Family Eyecare Center has always been widely recognized as a leader in optometry. In 2005, they were joined by Dr. Chad Hudnall, a Grand Island native, and today Family Eyecare Center continues to be a leader in eye care.

In fact, this year they have introduced the Zeiss Cirrus OCT, which is an instrument that is able to help the doctors detect early glaucoma and wet macular degeneration changes in the eye. They are also proud of their staff, of which several staff members have been with the company for over 10 years and a few over 20. Thank you for letting us be a leader in optometry and serve you for over 30 years.

One of the most important things a parent can do to help their children succeed in school is to take them for a comprehensive eye exam. According to the American Optometric Association, vision screenings are not diagnostic, and therefore, typically identify only a small portion of the vision problems in children.

Comprehensive eye exams are necessary to detect problems that a simple screening can miss, such as eye coordination, lazy eye, and near and farsightedness. Our doctors are here to help you make sure your child is ready for school.
