Our mission is to preserve the vision and overall health of all Franklin County andsurroundingarea citizens.
Dr. Kathleen Ammel (owner/optometrist), was born and raised in Lawrence, KS. After graduating from Kansas University with a B.A. in Biology, she attended and graduated from Indiana University School of Optometry in 1995. After helping establish a multi-site, private practice in Indianapolis and practicing for 11 years, she returned to Lawrence in August 2006 to be near family and enjoy the Kansas lifestyle. Purchasing Dr. Bill Whitesell’s satellite practice in Ottawa, KS has proved to be an excellent choice. Along with office manager, Kim Ridenour, the practice thrived. Now with new staff it has grown. Dr. Ammel is doing what she loves: helping patients utilize the latest technology to solve their visual needs.
