Ideal Eyecare is happy to announce that we will be adding a second eye doctor to our caring team of outstanding providers. Dr. Chris Connor will be joining Dr. Taylor at Ideal Eyecare to help maintain our top-notch standard of eye care. We are thrilled to welcome him to the team and are sure that you will love the addition.

Dr. Chris Connor earned his Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from the University of Nebraska in 2012. He then went on to Memphis, Tennessee where he attended Southern College of Optometry. There, he was inducted into the Beta Sigma Kappa Optometric Honor Society. He is also a member of the Kansas Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association. Dr. Connor also worked as a Clinical Skills Lab Teaching Assistant and volunteered with Remote Area Medical.

During his clinical training, Dr. Connor finished rotations at the Omaha Eye and Laser Institute, The Eye Center at Southern College of Optometry, and a private practice in Kansas City. He believes in helping individual patients achieve their goals for their vision and takes great pride in providing care to help them achieve those goals.

When he isn’t at work, Dr. Chris Connor enjoys traveling, running and rooting for the Nebraska Cornhuskers with his wife, Sara. He also loves to spend time in the outdoors with their dog, Sugar.

If you’re worried that Dr. Connor might be some stuck-up optometrist, you couldn’t be more wrong. In fact, he’s a lot like the rest of us. Dr. Connor enjoys listening to country music with Eric Church, Kenney Chesney, and the Dave Matthews Band being some of his favorites. For lunch? He usually packs a lunch meat sandwich just like the good old days in school. Oh, and he is a self-proclaimed iPhone lover.

Here at Ideal Eye Care, we are so excited to be welcoming such a knowledgeable and skilled provider into our team. This addition will help us continue providing unmatched care for each of our patients.

With two locations open now, one in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and the other newly opened in Omaha, Nebraska, we are seeing a rapid growth and a new influx of patients. Hiring Dr. Connor will help us ensure that all of our patients can receive the same timely, high-quality care that they have come to expect. At the same time, this allows us to bring in more patients and provide excellent eye care for an even wider range of consumers.

Dr. Connor will be joining in on our tradition of being one of the top eye care providers in the areas where we are located. He will use our cutting-edge technology to diagnose and manage a wide range of eye-related diseases and symptoms. To name a few, Dr. Connor will be here to help treat dry eye disease, glaucoma, near and farsightedness, astigmatism, conjunctivitis, diabetes-related eye problems, and countless more eye diseases.

On top of providing professional, high-quality eye care, Dr. Connor will go the extra mile to ensure you feel right at home. He will work to build a relationship with you, his patients, and take time to listen to your concerns and answer your questions. In addition, your eye-related medical records will be safely maintained by our staff so that your care can be prompt and thorough each time you come in for a visit.

Each of our offices accepts your health and vision insurance plans. We also stock a huge selection of stylish glasses frames. These range from very affordable to designer and are all unique and good-looking. We offer our patients the best contact lenses on the market as well and can fill your contact lens prescription right in our office.

We understand that our patients could go anywhere for their eye care needs. However, we will continue to ensure our practice and our team are a step above other providers and will continue providing you with unrivaled care. We sincerely appreciate that you trust us to care for your eyes and your family’s eyes and don’t take this responsibility lightly.
