Comprehensive Eye Exams

An eye exam is more than just getting a new prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. This appointment is crucial for Dr. Herkert to evaluate the health of the eye, which is one of the most complex organs in your body! The eyes can tell us a lot about a patient's overall health, which is why we recommend eye exams yearly.

Contact lenses

Whether you are a long-time contact lens wearer or a first time fit, we are confident that we can find the perfect contact lens for you. We provide our patients with contacts made from premium materials to maintain good eye health and ideal wearing plans for your lifestyle!

Dry Eye Management

Dry eye can present itself in a variety of ways, such as burning, itchy or tired eyes. It can also be problematic for contact lens wearers. Each symptom needs to be evaluated and treated appropriately to achieve the best and healthiest results.

Blue light protection

When it comes to protecting our eyes from harmful frequencies of blue light that comes from back lit devices and fluorescent lights, HFEC has the perfect solution no matter what your lifestyle and prescription requirements are from ready to wear glasses to custom Rx lenses!

Ocular Emergencies

It is crucial that you contact us if you are noticing flashes of light without a light source, as that can be indicative of problems at the back of the eye. Other problems like pain, infection, redness, and discomfort of the eye can also be treated in our office.

Routine and Medical

EyePromise neutraceuticals

All of their formulas are doctor recommended and science-based to help patients maintain healthy eyes. We have chosen to dispense their product because their mission is the same as ours - to help fight vision loss and to preserve healthy vision. Their products are made with premium, all-natural ingredients, right here in the USA. EyePromise is a leader in their field, being one of few supplement manufacturers on the Council for Responsible Nutrition. They back their products with an unconditional money-back guarantee. The fact that they have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau is just the icing on the cake. They have invested their time in studying the effects of natural, dietary Zeaxanthin and it's impact on macular pigment levels which are incredibly important when treating macular degeneration.

Retinal Health Assessment (RHA)

Dr. Daniel Herkert recently incorporated the latest technology in the prevention and management of macular degeneration. Herkert Family Eye Care has acquired the RHA from Annidis. This new retinal imaging technology allows Dr. Herkert to detect changes associated with macular degeneration many years before a change in vision is noticed by an individual, or detected using traditional optical technology. He is the first and currently, the only doctor in Indiana to incorporate this technology into his practice.

Infection and injury treament

Whether you are struggling with conjunctivitis (pink eye) or an eye injury like a corneal abrasion or foreign body, Dr. Herkert can diagnose and treat you here in office. He will determine the very best treatment plan for your condition and is dedicated to educating his patients on how to prevent it from happening again. We will work with you to get you seen in a timely matter as we know how valuable your vision is.


Herkert Family Eye Care is proud to co-manage with some of Indianapolis' most skilled specialists. We believe co-management allows us to provide our patients with the absolute best care possible. Most patients return to our office 1 week after their initial surgery, whether it is refractive laser surgery, cataract extraction, retinal repairs, or lid surgery.

Contact lens fittings

Dr. Herkert takes extreme care with all contact lens wearers, whether you are a first time fit or an experienced contact lens patient. We keep a supply of the most popular diagnostic lenses in office so often times you won't have to wait to get a contact on your eye. Of course we also offer specialty contact lenses like gas permeable contacts (RGPs) or multifocal lenses that require more fine tuning than a standard contact lens. Our technicians always assist in educating the proper wearing plan for your specific contact and provide a thorough insertion and removal training.

Eye Eco

Eye Eco offers scientifically proven solutions for dry eye relief that are natural, safe, simple and reusable. Most of their focus is on moist heat, but all their masks have the option to be used cold to help reduce allergy symptoms, puffiness and inflammation. They have masks designed for treating dry eye symptoms from acute to severe. In addition to their masks, they offer eyelid and skin cleansers specifically formulated to be hydrating and non-irritating. These therapies contain shea butter and chamomile to help reduce blemishes, dark circles, and blepharitis. Dry eye is a progressive disease, and left untreated it can impact your vision, eye health, and quality of life. It is our goal to join them in educating and treating all to help our patients look, feel, and see their best, every day.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Having an OCT in office provides Dr. Herkert the ability to improve patient care. Getting a baseline image of a healthy eye is crucial to preventing, monitoring, and treating ocular diseases like glaucoma. This machine allows us to take high-resolution, cross-sectional, and three-dimensional images. These images are immediately available and allow our office to determine your treatment plan on the same day of the testing. This imaging system can help us determine information from the very front of the eye, to the back.

Prompt adjustments and repairs

Our opticians work tirelessly to provide our patients with timely service as we know just how serious it can be to go without glasses. We can perform many repairs as well as replacements in office. For jobs that need a bit more TLC, we outsource to one of our skilled labs that have every tool they need to get your glasses performing like new again.


The Optikam allows us to obtain accurate measurements and simulate different lenses to help you visualize what to expect for your new lenses. It takes all the measurements necessary for ordering your glasses down to a tenth of a millimeter, in just one photo. It not only provides us with accuracy, but also time efficiency and the ability to fit you with some of the newest and more meticulously designed lenses.

As an independent eye care provider, it is important to us to partner with companies that share our vision. We work closely with Hoya Labs because we believe they offer the best service and products at the best price for our patients. Their lens catalog is extensive and always changing to include the most advanced lens technology. They offer exclusive products only available through their network of private practices, allowing us to pass that along to our patients. Our lab representatives are always providing us with thorough education about how their lenses work and why they are consistently at the forefront of engineering new designs.

BluTech Lenses

We offer the latest technology when it comes to protecting our eyes from harmful frequencies of blue light that comes from back lit devices and fluorescent lights. BluTech lenses actually block the high-energy blue light from penetrating the back of the eye to help prevent eye strain as well as protecting the macula. Herkert Family Eye Care offers ready to wear BluTech glasses that are perfect for those who have 20/20 vision, or for contact lens wearers who do more than 4 hours of computer work a day. We can also create a custom pair of BluTech computer glasses based on your prescription and measurements.
