Family-Owned and Operated Since 1974

Kennedy Vision Health Center has been family-owned and operated since Dr. Kennedy founded it in 1974. As we’ve expanded our range of services and patient base over the years, patient-first care has remained our priority. We use the latest technology and treatments to make your eye care as simple — and personalized to you — as possible.

Our Eye Care Services

Our eye care center offers a wide range of eye care and eyewear services for your entire family. During your comprehensive eye exam, we’ll make sure we fully understand your eye health by testing for a wide range of vision issues, then take the time to find which solutions are right for you from specialty eyewear, eye disease treatments, and more.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

We recommend annual comprehensive eye exams to maintain the overall health of your eyes. Your doctor will take the time to understand your eye care concerns and lifestyle, and use advanced diagnostic technologies — like digital phoropter refractive testing and optomap retinal imaging — to get a complete picture of your eye health.

Pediatric Eye Exams

Our eye doctors love making eye exams easy and enjoyable for children! We use child-friendly tests to make sure your kids are comfortable throughout the exam, and keep them engaged with movies, toys, and a treasure chest full of prizes. Our pediatric doctors are trained to catch age-specific eye conditions as early as possible to ensure your children can see clearly at any age.

Myopia Management

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, affects millions of people starting early in their lives. Although glasses correct myopia, they don’t solve the underlying issue — a misshapen eye — or prevent it from progressing. Our eye care center offers myopia management to correct children’s vision, and address the causes of myopia to slow its progression, making it a great option for still-developing eyes!

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye disease, which is caused by not having enough tears or poor-quality tears, can lead to discomfort and irritation. It may be a very common eye condition, but that doesn’t mean you have to just accept it: our treatment options can help. We use our advanced diagnostic technology to determine the root cause of your dry eye and tailor solutions to your specific case.

Specialty Contact Lenses

Kennedy Vision Health Center provides various specialty contacts such as rigid gas permeable (RGP), scleral, and toric lenses for those who are unable to use other contacts for a variety of reasons. Your doctor will help customize and fit your lenses to make sure you’re getting the best vision possible.

Eye Disease Management

Our Elk River eye doctors use advanced equipment to assess your eye health and check for eye diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma, myopia, and dry eye. And to ensure that you have the most successful procedures possible, we also have LASIK and cataract surgery co-management.

Although early detection is the best preventative measure for most conditions, we offer various treatment options should anything come up. These can include medicated eye drops, specialized contact lenses, and a suite of unique solutions for everything from dry eye to myopia management.

Testimonials

Testimonial Quote

- Johnny T.

“Brittany went above and beyond customer service to make sure she helped me, and saved me hundreds, when I was prepared to spend money on new frames. Was really impressed with her! Especially, as I said, she spent her own time, and work doing this, and I didn’t even know this was an option. Thank you Kennedy!”
