History of St. Luke Eye Institute

The optometrists at St. Luke Eye Institute in Amarillo, Texas perform eye exams on patients of all ages, including infant eye exams. Children, adults, and seniors can have annual eye exams for glasses and contact lenses at St. Luke Eye Institute. They can purchase their eyewear in the same location at our on-site 9th Ave. Optical. Our optometrists are certified in the highest levels of specialization, so we can treat any eye disease or condition. If surgery is indicated, we will discuss options with you, refer you to the best doctor to manage your condition, and then follow-up with you after surgery.

The optometrists at St. Luke Eye Institute are all Fellows of the American Academy of Optometry. This prestigious agency assures that member optometrists maintain the highest academic standards and stay up-to-date on the latest technology and research. Our optometrists pride themselves on their broad knowledge and skill using cutting edge technology. They have participated in a number of FDA drug trials, many of which resulted in new drugs we use today.

9th Ave. Optical is located inside of St. Luke Eye Institute. After their eye exams, patients can have their glasses prescriptions filled here. Our certified opticians will help you select the perfect eyeglasses. Putting highest quality lens products in a comfortable, stylish frame will allow you the best possible vision. And you will get lots of complements on your new glasses, too!

St. Luke Eye Institute is one of the oldest eyecare facilities in Amarillo, Texas. We were founded in 1986 by Drs. John and Andrew Alpar. Dr. Candace Lipshy joined the group in 1993. St. Luke Eye Institute has been providing eye exams in a professional, yet relaxed, atmosphere in Amarillo for more than 25 years. We look forward to continuing to serve many more generations of patients in and around Amarillo, Texas. We would be honored to care for your family.
