About Us


EyeCare Partners PC (ECP) first opened its doors in 1979. We are committed to providing our patients with outstanding care, service, and products all right here in our quaint, little town. At our office here in Pella, we offer 5 dedicated doctors to assist you and your family with all of your vision needs! 

EyeCare Partners PC is focused on contributing in positive ways in our community. We participate in area schools' vision screenings, local health and benefit fairs, attend local nursing homes for on-site care, and supporting diabetes education available at Pella Regional Health Center.

We also work in alliance with the Lion’s Club International to promote their distribution of recycled glasses to people in other countries. The VOSH program (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity) collects, cleans, and catalogs donated glasses to be used in international missions, giving the gift of better vision to people all over the world. We serve as collection a site for donated glasses/sunglasses.

Our doctors have been a part of many vision related missions over the years, freely giving of their time and skill in an effort to assist those less fortunate, and they continue to support opportunities to “give back”.


Comprehensive Eye Exams


We specialize in providing comprehensive
eye exams including refraction, pupil dilation, visual field testing, glaucoma screening and treatment, and your most recent prescription to assure you see the best possible!

Contact Lens Fitting


 We offer contact lens fitting for most conventional contact brands including
daily wear products, bifocal contacts,
and hard-to-fit contact lens options. With a small fee, we will teach you how to insert and remove your contact lenses safely.



We offer assessments, referrals, and follow up assistance, along with post-operative care. In partnership with Wolfe Eye Clinic, we are able to bring more convenience to our cataract patients by allowing them to meet their Wolfe doctor for preliminary and follow-up visits right here at ECP in Pella.

We take most major insurances that offer coverage for your eye exam. When you make an appointment, provide your insurance information and we can assist you further. We also offer a discount for those who do not have coverage.
In partnership with Wolfe Eye Clinic and Lasik Plus in Des Moines, we offer referrals and follow-up assistance with post-operative care.  Many of our patients have chosen to do LASIK surgery and have been very happy with the results!
