The skill and dedication of our staff, strengthen Proffitt Eye Center's reputation as a quality care team and facility.

Proffitt Eye Center works closely with many Optometrists in central Nebraska. We recognize them as colleagues in professional eye care. Whether you live near Proffitt Eye Center, or not, if appropriately referred, you may choose to have your Optometrist provide a portion of your post operative care. Many Optometrists are qualified to carefully monitor your eyes in the weeks and months following your eye surgery. They keep our medical staff informed of our patient's post operative status and we remain available to our patients and are committed to their well being on a long term basis.
