Comprehensive Vision & Eye Wellness
Vision is VALUABLE. A visit to the eye doctor is more than just aiming to get 20/20 vision. Glasses and contact lenses can improve the clarity of vision, but what about comfort and long-term health? Drs. Lauck and McLean will address any problems with eyestrain, irritation, or ocular disease. Our staff maintains the most up-to-date knowledge on modern medicine, technology, and fashion styles.
Drs. Lauck & McLean provide complete vision and eye wellness care for both adults and children. Pediatric eye exams are important for detecting any problems that would prevent normal vision development. Untreated vision problems could lead to learning disabilities or poor vision later in life. If a problem is discovered, early treatment is the most effective. We recommend your child have his/her first comprehensive exam before starting school (or earlier if you are concerned about a specific problem). Dr. Hunt sees patients of all ages, and makes the exam easy and fun for even the youngest patient!
We pride ourselves on professionalism in a relaxed, fun environment. Our patients are our friends! Exams are scheduled every 45 minutes, so you will never feel rushed. You can expect little-to-no wait time, thorough yet efficient care from some of the best doctors in town, followed by custom frame selection if glasses are needed. You will leave our office feeling confident about your new look.
We are honored you have selected Drs. Lauck and McLean to be your family's eye care provider.
Our professionals can help fit you with a pair of contact lenses that are just right for you. We are experts in fitting lenses and can handle even the most specialized needs. Whether rigid or soft lenses, we are also experienced in handling the most difficult of prescriptions.
If you have allergies, then you know allergies can be particularly annoying for contact lens wearers. In the past, many people had to quit wearing their lenses during allergy season. However, new lens materials and allergy medications have made it possible for many patients to eliminate the burning/itchy eyes associated with allergies. Prescription medications are amazingly effective and safe even in children as young as three years. Let us know if you have special allergy needs and we will be happy to help you!
Frames and Lenses
Our optical laboratory has the latest in equipment to not only fabricate your glasses, but to maintain and repair them should they become broken or damaged. We are able to provide you with any frame or lens design available. Our highly qualified opticians and staff will adjust your glasses for extended comfort and vision.

The natural lens in the eye gradually becomes less clear as we get older. When opacities develop in the lens or the lens gets too hazy, vision will be impaired. Our office can diagnose and manage cataract care. Once the cataract affects vision to the extent that you cannot read or see distant objects comfortably, we will recommend cataract surgery. Our office co-manages with cataract specialists that are experts in cataract surgery. You'll be surprised how easy and painless the procedure is, and may not even require glasses for clear distance vision!
Waste products may collect within the retina as a result of UV damage or genetic predisposition. Retinal tissues will not function optimally, potentially leading to gradual or sudden central vision loss. Drs. Lauck and McLean have the experience and technology to closely monitor for these deposits and visual changes. If diagnosed early, you may be advised to take eye vitamins and monitor your central vision with a grid. If more significant changes are detected, you may be referred to a retinal surgeon or low vision specialist.
Glaucoma gradually destroys the optic nerve tissue in the back of the eye. The greatest danger of glaucoma stems from the fact that the disease is painless and without obvious symptoms until significant damage has occurred. Glaucoma often runs in families, and the most common cause is from pressure being too high inside the eye. We always monitor for glaucoma during routine eye examinations. Tests include checking the pressure of the eye, screening for side vision defects and analyzing the appearance of the optic nerve. If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, we typically prescribe medications that lower the eye pressure. Most forms of glaucoma are successfully treated with eye drops. Laser treatments and eye surgery are secondary treatments that offer alternative ways to treat more advanced glaucoma.
Diabetic patients should have a dilated retinal examination each year. Diabetes affects small blood vessels throughout the body, including inside the eyes. These blood vessels can become leaky and sometimes cause visual changes if the disease progresses. Diabetes can often stimulate the growth of new poorly functioning blood vessels in the back of the eye, which ultimately leak and damage the retina. Laser treatments have proven to slow the progression of retinal eye disease for many patients by destroying these vessels. We have the latest instruments used to detect changes in the back of the eye. If we discover advancing diabetic eye disease that can be treated or needs further evaluation, we will refer you for consultation and further testing to a board certified retinal specialist.
Our office provides working arrangements with top specialists in the Greater Indianapolis area should you require referral for any surgical procedures such as cataract surgery, laser surgery, glaucoma surgery, refractive surgery, strabismic (eye turn) surgery, retinal detachments, retinal tears and hemorrhages. You can be assured that your eyes will be comprehensively managed by the best eye cares professionals.
Laser vision correction is an excellent option for many patients to reduce reliance on glasses or contact lenses. Drs. Lauck and McLean work with the TLC Laser Eye Centers and Price Vision Group for LASIK surgery.

Eye Infections, Eye Injuries, Dry Eyes
Our office provides emergency services for eye infections and eye injuries, including after hours or weekends when necessary. State of the art microscopes allow our doctors to examine the front surface of the eye and facial areas around the eye for infection or injury. After assessing the extent of the injury or infection, a treatment plan will be formulated and explained to you. Follow-up visits to monitor your recovery or referral to a surgical specialist will be scheduled as needed.
Dry eye symptoms include scratchy eyes, burning, mild redness and gritty feeling eyes. Oral medications, reading, or computer tasks in dry environments may aggravate marginally dry eyes. Dry eyes can be diagnosed by several methods, including adding dyes to observe tear patterns, evaluation of the amount of tears lubricating the front of the eye and from review of your symptoms and environment. Treatment may include artificial tears, medications, and/or punctal plugs inserted in the tear drainage canals.
