Welcome to Eyeworks!

For your added convenience we opened an office in Washington, IN in 2012 and Linton, IN in 2016.

“Glasses and Contacts in About an Hour” has been our pledge to you since we started Eyeworks in July 1986. Our optometric practice actually started on the same block in downtown Vincennes in 1945, by our founding optometrist, Dr. Eli B. Hendrix, Jr. We’ve been able to grow and expand because of good people just like you coming to us for your eyecare and vision needs. Because your time is valuable, we have a modern, on-site computerized lens lab where we can make most prescriptions in about an hour or less. You don’t have to wait days or weeks to get your new glasses.

We have five full-time optometrists and a retinal specialist on staff. We also have the latest in diagnostic equipment to help you keep your eyes healthy and seeing their best.

Because you’ve told us price it’s important, we have all price ranges for lenses and frames. From the very inexpensive frames up to diamond mounted 14K gold metal frames. We’ll provide you with personal attention without rushing you through like just another number. We make each visit special to your eyes and what you need. Give us a call to schedule your appointment with one of our 5 full time optometrists, you will be glad you did.

This past weekend, Governor Holcomb issued order 20-24, stating health care providers may resume elective procedures beginning Monday, April 27. This includes routine eye exams. Eyeworks is excited to announce we will be opening Friday May 1st and resuming normal business hours thereafter. We want to assure all staff and patients we will be taking extra precautions set forth by our state optometric association to ensure the health and well being of our patients, staff, and surrounding communities.

Some of the measures we will be taking are listed below:
We will be reducing the amount of exams scheduled daily with more spacing between appointments. We ask all companions of patients to remain outside the office unless they are a parent/guardian or caregiver. We have rearranged our office and will be redirecting foot traffic to help make sure social distancing guidelines are followed. We will not be taking walk-in appointments at this time. All doctors and staff interacting with patients are to wear face masks. We also ask that each patient wear a face mask. We continue to ask all staff and patients to remain at home if experiencing any symptom of COVID-19 and/or feeling the least bit unwell. We will be screening all staff each morning as they arrive. We continue to disinfect each room (all equipment and surfaces) before and after each patient, and require all staff interacting with patients to wash their hands before and after each encounter. We will be disinfecting all eyewear that is touched and will be limiting the amount of people touching eyewear. We will continue to provide free direct shipping on multiple box orders of contact lenses to help minimize unnecessary visits to the office.

Thank you for your understanding in these difficult times. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 daily. We will be making every effort to adapt and learn the best practices of keeping everyone safe and healthy. Again, we are excited to be able to get back to serving the community with all your vision and eye health needs. We appreciate your loyalty to Eyeworks. We look forward to seeing you soon.
