"And if I can't change the world, I'll change the world
within my reach."

- Mark Erelli



Dr. Herkert is a 1991 graduate of the Indiana School of Optometry. His experience includes eight years with the Indiana Eye Clinic. He also spent a year teaching at the Indianapolis Eye Center and is a member of the American Optometric Association and the Indiana Optometric Society. He takes great pride in listening to his patients' needs and helping them to find the best prescription for glasses and/or contact lenses.

What do you love about Optometry?

Optometry gives me the opportunity to restore and improve one of our most important senses, sight. I enjoy working with children who are getting their first pair of glasses, someone trying contacts for the first time, and helping someone after having cataract surgery.

What is the best part of your day at Herkert Family Eye Care?

The best part of my day at the office is working with my patients, both new and existing, and finding out what’s new in their lives. Taking care of their eyes is important. I also like learning about their interests and how I may benefit them.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I like to stay active. I like to golf, hike, fish, and camp. However, as I get older, I see there is beauty in finding time to just sit and do nothing; and, if I can incorporate a campfire with it, all the better.
