The Sabates Eye Centers Difference

If you or someone you care about has a vision problem, several things are probably on your mind. Trying to find the right eye care doctor shouldn’t be one of them. No matter what you’re experiencing, you deserve attention, answers and action. Right away. In one place.

Why Sabates Eye Centers? Because that’s what we do. From the routine to the most complex, anything affecting the eyes and your ability to see commands our full attention, from every angle. All of us – ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians and technicians – are under “one roof” making us the largest subspecialty eye care practice in the region.

We Bring You the Best

For more than 40 years, we have built this practice around helping people see their best. That means providing the best specialists for each part of the eye and every type of vision problem. When you see a Sabates Eye Centers eye doctor, your care and treatment come from someone at the top of their field, along with technicians and staff who deliver true five-star service.


We Make it Accessible

What good is the best eye care if you can’t get to it? There are 12 Sabates Eye Centers in Kansas City and beyond, including at three major hospitals. From regular exams to advanced surgical procedures, expert care is never far away.


We Take This Seriously

Most patients tell us they would rather lose anything but their sight. They entrust us with their eyes, to do everything we can do to enhance or preserve vision. It’s a responsibility that demands we stay at the cutting edge of technology, pioneer new procedures and advance the science of eye care. We know it’s also an art form. Here, you get the best combination.
