Exceptional eye care, focused on you.

Herkert Family Eye Care opened on December 21, 1998 when Dr. Herkert decided, after working for a larger practice, that he wanted something smaller and more personal where he can decide the best treatment plan for his patients. HFEC was born just a few years later. The practice was incorporated as of July of 1998 - the official opening was December 21, 1998. In the beginning there were only two staff members in addition to Dr. Herkert. Ten years later, in 2008, the practice moved down the road to our current location to accommodate the significant growth in our patient base.
