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.

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.
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.
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!
When it comes to protecting our eyes from harmful frequencies of blue light that comes from backlit 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!
At Herkert Family Eye Care we are fortunate to have access to some of the newest technologies available on the market. In the office, we can perform preventative screenings as well as more in-depth testing to monitor a number of ocular diseases. We also co-manage with some of the best surgery centers in Indianapolis.
