Eye Care Specialists Locations
If you would like to find a doctor in your area for LASIK eye surgery, look no further! Eye Care Specialists has two main locations and four satellite locations (remote locations that are not staffed every business day). Dr. Parker sees patients at three of these locations:
Since the WaveScan equipment used to obtain your measurements for your LASIK procedure is extremely delicate and precise, we only perform Full Dilated Pre-Operative exams in Cape Girardeau. However, Dr. Parker sees patients for Free Screenings and post-operative visits in Marion and Carbondale.
We offer one night’s hotel stay for your procedure date if you reside more than 50 miles away from our Cape Girardeau office. Accommodations are typically at Candlewood Inn & Suites. Please let Katie or Kim know if this would be a convenient option for you when scheduling your surgery.
Poplar Bluff Area
Dr. Brad Stuckenschneider is available to conduct Free Screenings and post-operative visits at our Poplar Bluff and Piedmont locations. While Dr. Brad may assist in your pre-operative and post-operative exams, Dr. Parker would be the physician performing your LASIK procedure in Cape Girardeau.
Coordination of Care
As a convenience to our patients, we also coordinate patient care with many optometrists in the tri-state area who can determine if you are a LASIK candidate and conduct your post-operative LASIK care. We often find your regular eye doctor may have more flexible hours for the post-operative exams, some including evening or Saturday hours.
