Herkert Family Eye Care has been on the Indianapolis southside for the past twenty years. Dr. Herkert opened this office after working in a larger medical practice because he wanted something smaller and more personal where he could decide the best treatment for his patients.
He is grateful for the many people he has met and the eyes he has looked into over the past two decades and looks forward to many more years of creating exceptional eye care.

A comprehensive eye exam is more than just getting a new prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. It is an appointment where Dr. Herkert evaluates the health of your eyes, which are one of the most complex organs in your body! He evaluates the inside and outside of your eyes, as well as your vision. The eyes can tell us a lot about a patient's overall health which is why we recommend yearly eye exams.
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. We have a variety of treatment options to help alleviate these symptoms.
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. Dr. Herkert enjoys the challenge of a hard-to-fit contact lens wearer. We provide our patients with contacts made from premium materials to maintain good eye health and ideal wearing plans for your lifestyle! We have a variety of daily wear lenses, multifocal lenses (no more reading glasses), and colored contacts.
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.
