We’re about wellness, and it all starts with your vision.

At Kissel Eye Care, we welcome patients of all ages to our optometry practice. Our warm and trusted eye doctors provide personalized optical and medical eye care services to satisfy your family’s needs at any age, from pediatrics to geriatrics. Depending upon your age, lifestyle and overall health condition, vision care requirements change. In our friendly practice, we become familiar with each individual patient in order to customize eye exams and treatment options.

Why Choose Us?

We take the time to identify any visual problem that could affect your day-to-day, from shopping, driving, to working on the computer.

We are one of the few practices in the country that evaluate binocular vision issues to see how your eyes affect your life.

We offer the Diopsys test, a safe, non-invasive way for us to objectively measure the function of your entire vision system.

Dr. Kathryn Collins treats binocular vision disorder with prism aligning glasses and is one of 30 optometrists in the US-trained by Dr. Debby Feinberg. As an expert in Neurovision Rehabilitation and a certified Brain Injury specialist, Dr. Collins specializes in treating vision-related conditions for patients post-concussion or traumatic brain injury, as well as dizziness, migraines, computer vision syndrome, post-concussion syndrome, and balance issues.

Kissel Eye Care has been seeing patients in the Lancaster and Lititz area for 18 years, providing quality eye care services from comprehensive eye exams and detecting and treating eye conditions like glaucoma, dry eyes, red eyes and managing diabetic retinopathy. Our practice utilizes modern eye health technology, including a retinal camera, OCT, and autorefractor. We’re also able to measure eye pressure with a “no-puff” tonometer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What ages of patients do you see?

Dr. Collins sees patients from 4 to 94+. Dr. Nachtigal is part of the InfantSEE program to screening infants & sees patients from babies and above.

Do you offer general eye care services?

Yes, we do! We evaluate patients for routine care, glasses, contacts, safety glasses, sports goggles, and check the general health of the eye to ensure no conditions affect them systemically or their eyes visually.

What is Binocular Vision Dysfunction & how do I get tested?

Binocular vision dysfunction is the way our brain processes the information from both our eyes. It’s important for comfort and balance and knowing where you are in space. The way you are tested is by an exam that evaluates 6 muscles in your eyes to determine if both of your eyes are working properly. If you fill out the questionnaire on our website, you will be a likely candidate for testing. We will reach out to you to test out your binocular function.

What insurances do you take? Payment options?

For vision plans, we take VSP, VBA, and NVA for an eye exam only. We also take many medical insurances! We also have Care Credit if you’re unable to pay with credit, check, or cash.
