Comprehensive Eye Exams

Diabetes, glaucoma, and macular degeneration are all preventable, but common causes of blindness. Regularly having a comprehensive eye exam is the best way to help maintain healthy eyes and vision. Dr. Taylor takes special care to explain any eye health concerns you may have, so you leave with a better understanding of your eyes and prescription.

Dr. Taylor will perform many tests on your eyes during the exam process including: color vision, depth perception, eye alignment, eye movement (which is essential for children to ensure success in school), assessing the need for glasses or contacts, pressure check for glaucoma, and a health assessment of both the front and back of your eyes.

Contact Lens Examinations/Guaranteed Contact Lens Success Program

We believe everyone can wear contact lenses. Even if you need bifocals or have trouble with dry eyes or allergies, we can find a contact lens that fits your needs. This is why we offer our Guaranteed Contact Lens Success Program. If for any reason you are unhappy with your contact lenses, simply return within 90 days of your contact lens fitting. If we are unable to find a contact lens that works for you, we will refund you for any money spent in the purchase of contact lens materials.

Lasik and Cataract Surgery

Dr. Taylor has been trained in the latest Lasik and cataract procedures and provides both pre-operative and post-operative care for Lasik and cataract surgery patients. Dr. Taylor can determine if you are a good candidate for Lasik or cataract surgery and discuss what options are best for you. We partner with the best surgeons in the Council Bluffs and Omaha metro area.

See to Learn®

See to Learn™ is a complimentary visual assessment for three-year-old children.


SEE TO LEARN® is an innovative, three-step preventive health program designed to ensure that children entering kindergarten can see to learn and to educate parents and teachers about the warning signs of vision problems in all school-age children.

  • Step 1: Ongoing education to alert parents and educators about the signs of vision problems in children of any age.
  • Step 2: A free vision assessment for your three-year-old by a participating Eye Care Council optometrist. This is designed to detect vision conditions that require correction at an early age. Although vision problems among the very young are generally uncommon, some serious conditions like amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (turned eye), require care before age 5 to avoid permanent loss of vision.
  • Step 3: A professional vision examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist paid for by you, the parent before or during your child’s first year of school. This is an important investment that will help ensure that vision problems do not affect your child’s ability to learn and do well in school.

What Clients Are Saying…

Matt Stewart

Ideal Eyecare was a great find for me. Dr. Taylor and his staff were so welcoming and informed. They were able to answer all of my questions, and I was able to get an appointment that day! They worked with me making sure my contacts were the right fit, even though I had never worn contacts made for astigmatism before. I am very happy with them, would definitely recommend Ideal to anyone.
