Understanding Vision



Eye care for children is much different from that of an adult and even drastically different than that of a senior adult. A child’s ability to see develops rapidly in the first months of life.

Teenager with glasses on


If you are a teenager you will be experiencing your own unique visual issues. The teen years often bring about the first signs of inability to see at distances.

Adults looking at frame options at Rapid City Eye Care optical shop


In your adult years you’ve most likely have learned to deal with your glasses or contact lenses in order to see. Eye care in adults is important in that as our eyes age or vision often worsens.

Seniors at front desk of Rapid City Eye Care


By age 65, 1-in-3 Americans have some form of vision-impairing eye disease. It’s vital that seniors get regular eye exams to check for vision conditions that can lead to partial or permanent vision loss.

This was my first time coming to this group. I switched because my other eye company didn’t accept my insurance. The staff there were truly awesome! Dr. Holec answered all my questions. Aaliyah was one of the receptionist. I came in 3 different times and each time she had a smile on her face! She was ready and willing to help! Marc helped me pick out the eye wear just right for me. He was polite and gave me much needed info to make my decision on eye wear. While waiting for my glasses to come in Eddie took my broken glasses and fixed them to the best of his ability. They were still clean and sharp! All the ladies at the front desk were fantastic. As a local business owner there customer service is second to none. They even got my glasses to me a day before I was leaving for Las Vegas! Keep up the amazing work!

Debris got into my eye from a windy day. I spent 30-40min trying to wash it out with no luck. I called in to be seen right away, driving with one eye. I ended up scratching my eye with the debris. They numbed my eye, cleared it from the debris, washed it and gave me some eye drops. My eye feels much better. Overall a great experience. Still waiting to see the bill however... Update: Just over $100. Great price for saving your eyes. I would do business here again.

I have been going to optometrists and ophthamologists since I was seven years old. My eye prescription is severe and complex. Never have I had people who worked so hard to help me as I have at Drs. Tucker Kudrna Holec Young. They introduced me to new solutions and have worked through multiple follow-up visits to ensure I am getting the best care. Yesterday, for the first time in many years, I was able to wear a contact and had the best quality vision of my life. Their diligence, patience, and expertise, has earned my loyalty and respect. I highly recommend them.

Edit: well, I went back in for more fiberglass removal. I found out they were trying to contact me, they had the wrong number. I'll contribute this to my hastily written down chicken scratch while I was filling out my form. I want to stress the doctors did great all three times, my original 3 star review was because I was disappointed in how I wasn't contacted, even tho they tried several times. I'm a dumba$$ what can I say. ORIGINAL: I went in for fiberglass removal of my left eye, twice. The second time I left, they told me they would call me the next day to see how I am. Nobody called. I still have fiberglass in my eye. Sucks. We're not talking about following up on a pair of frames, or how someone's contacts are working for them, we're talking about a guy with FIBERGLASS in his eye. They failed to follow up. Not sure what to do now.
