Welcome to Lock Family Eye Care!

Your Optometrist in West Des Moines, IA

Lock Family Eye Care in West Des Moines has been providing comprehensive eye exams for children and adults since 2006. Our caring and friendly optometrists are here for your family's eye health and vision correction issues. Our services include eye and vision exams, computer vision treatment, eye disease management, sports vision training, and vision therapy. We also offer a large inventory of prescription sunglasses, glasses for all ages, and contact lenses, including hard-to-fit contacts.

Eye & Vision Exams for Everyone

Everyone benefits from regular comprehensive eye exams. Eye and vision exams do more than test visual acuity. These exams are necessary to detect common eye diseases, like diabetic retinopathy, AMD, and glaucoma. Many eye diseases do not produce any symptoms, like eye pain or discomfort. The only symptom may be a slow, progressive loss of vision. Our Optomap device takes highly detailed images of the back of your eyes to check for diabetic retinopathy, AMD, and problems with your retina like retinal detachment. Regular eye exams can help find eye problems before you notice a change in your vision.

An optometry exam can also help with eye strain you may develop if you work on a computer all day. Ask about computer vision correction during your annual exam.

Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses

Our optometrists, Dr. Michael Lock and Dr. Jenessa Lock, recommend annual exams to keep your prescription up to date. If you wear corrective lenses, scheduling an exam once a year will help you avoid eye strain and headaches that can occur when wearing an outdated prescription. At our optical shop, staff members are here to help you find that perfect pair of frames to match your face shape and personal style. We’re experts in ordering all types of contact lenses, even hard-to-fit contacts, and a variety of prescription sunglasses.

Children’s Eye Care 

Optometry exams for children can start as early as six months of age. If the child has normal development of vision, another exam may not be needed until the age of three, when they begin preschool. Children’s exams check for proper eye development, tracking and teaming, and eye coordination. As the child gets older, we will also examine their eyes to evaluate depth perception, color blindness, and visual acuity.

Eye Surgery Consultations

We are here to help determine if vision correction surgery is the right choice for you by answering all your questions. After your surgery, our optometrists can examine the surgical site and perform all your surgical post-care needs.
