Make Us Your Cincinnati Eye Doctor
Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and it’s important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist in Western Hills and Tri- County whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts. From the time you enter one of Dr. Timothy Kenkel and Associates’ two conveniently located practices in Cincinnati, OH, our friendly trained staff will provide you with the most caring and professional optometric care.
Our office is proud to provide our patients with the latest and most advanced technologies, including an Optical Coherence Tomographer in each of our offices. We have the most technically advanced diagnostic equipment to screen for eye diseases such as macular degeneration & glaucoma. Every office includes OCT technology, a visual field analyzer and retinal and glaucoma screenings. Our doctors are highly trained in dealing with medical eye conditions, and we make sure we are equipped to diagnose and care for all eye health conditions.
If you are interested in trying contact lenses, or currently wear contacts, we carry the largest contact lens inventory. In most cases you will leave with your new contact lenses on the same day as your visit. If this is your first pair, we can usually fit you immediately with a trial pair of contacts, and you can go home wearing your brand new contacts, and no glasses!
If you are looking for glasses, come in and browse through our high quality designer frames. We carry the most popular brands, with a huge selection. One of our stylish frames is guaranteed to look great on every member of the family.
With our convenient locations right next to LensCrafters, you will often have your glasses within 1-2 hours after your exam. We’re your one-stop shop for your regular eye exam and all of your eyewear. Proud members of the Cincinnati community, we’ve never turned away a patient, providing patients from Western Hills, Hamilton, Forest Park, Fairfield, Bridgetown, and other surrounding areas of Ohio with the finest quality vision care for almost 20 years. We also take most major insurance plans.
In fact, you don’t even need an appointment for an eye exam to see a doctor. If you are in the neighborhood and realize that you haven’t had an eye exam for awhile, come in and a doctor will be able to give you a complete eye exam on the spot.
So whether you need a routine eye examination, treatment for eye disease, consultation for eye surgery such as LASIK or cataract surgery, lost your contacts, or have an eye infection, Dr. Timothy Kenkel and Associates are open 7 days a week, to provide you with the best treatment, advice, and follow up care.
Q&A with Dr. K
Dr. Kenkel Answers Your Eyecare Questions
My vision is blurred. Do I need to get a new prescription?
There are many people that think they need a change in their prescription because their vision is blurred, but really their vision is blurred because they have Dry Eye syndrome. Classic symptoms of dry eyes would be fluctuating vision when using a computer, because your blink rate slows when looking for extended periods of time at the screen and your not re-wetting your eye (cornea). The remedy would be to increase your blink rate by consciously remembering to blink your eyes when looking at a monitor and if need be, add a lubricant such as Systane or Blink. If your condition doesn't improve, you should come into our office for a consultation.
