So extremely grateful for Dr. Epley and the staff at Vision Specialtists. My husband needed emergency eye care for a work injury and the staff were so gracious and timely, especially on a Friday afternoon! Thank you to all the staff. I will definitely recommend them to friends and family.

An eye emergency is always traumatic but the staff at Vision Specialists and Dr. Holthaus made it so much better. Not only did Lisa work me into a Friday schedule, but she gave me good advice before my appointment. I've been traveling hours annually back to my previous eye doctor but no longer. I've found a new care provider. Dr. Kate not only addressed the scratch across my cornea and gave me a thorough exam, she explained the implications of my RK surgery from 25 years ago. I've never had a provider explain it to me like she did. I have had excellent eye care over the years but really felt her genuine interest in my long-term eye health. She was knowledgeable, kind and her passion for her practice was evident. I highly recommend her practice and her staff. I don't wear glasses but I was most impressed with all of the frame options available at Vision Specialists of Omaha. I'm actually looking forward to my followup appointment next week!

I’ve been coming to Vision Specialists for a couple years, and Dr. Kate is the most thorough eye doctor I’ve ever been to! She checks aspects of my eye health that previous doctors hadn’t checked or spoken about. She takes the time to explain everything thoroughly, and I feel like I understand my eye health so much better. The staff is also wonderful and very professional. I recently had an emergency and the whole office was so accommodating about making sure I was taken care of. The office also has a great selection of glasses, and they are helpful without being pushy. My experience here has been wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone!

Just wanna shout out this amazing office and their crew. I was having issues with my current prescription with reading they rechecked my vision with my current prescription realized it was off and had my lenses remade no cost to me. They have gone above and beyond for my vision and are wonderful with educating patients about their vision needs.
