Q&A with Dr. G
Dr. Galbrecht Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Why do I see floaters in my vision?
Floaters typically appear when tiny pieces of the vitreous (the gel-like substance in the eye) break loose within the inner back portion of the eye. As we age, theses floaters become more prominent. You’ll notice the floaters more if you look at a bright, clear sky or a white computer screen. These are normal and part of the aging process. They only become a medical emergency if you start to see a shower of floaters and spots which can sometimes be accompanied by light flashes. If this should happen to you, you’ll want to seek medical attention immediately.

What does 20/20 mean?
This is used to describe perfect eyesight. What it really means is that you can see clearly at 20 feet what would normally be seen at that distance. For example, if you have 20/80, you can see
at 20 feet what a person with 20/20 can see at 80 feet.
Why We Want You to Try Daily Contact Lenses!
Our Olathe Optometrist highly recommends daily disposable contact lenses. Did you know that replacing your lenses daily is the best modality of wear for decreasing infections due to contact lenses, decreasing allergy symptoms during peak seasonal times, and does not require contact lens solution? Daily contact lenses are more breathable than the leading 2 week or monthly lenses, have less deposition of allergens or proteins on the lenses, and have more oxygen permeability leading to all day comfort. So if you want to try something new, Galbrecht Eyecare is here to help.

Dr. Galbrect is the best eye doctor ever and her staff is amazing.
Dr. Galbrect is an amazing eye doctor. The attention to detail and the way she makes you feel comfortable is great. I would and will recommend Dr. Galbrect to everyone.
I have always had a very positive experience here. The staff is friendly, prompt, and professional. They have text reminders about appointments, which is nice. Dr. Galbrecht is always so cheerful. I may been in many times to see her and she always has had a big smile and was very friendly. I would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Galbrecht is the best experience I have had while being blind as a bat:) What I love is that she doesn't mind spending the time chatting and sharing about life! Now I don't mind that I can't see have to wear glasses:) This is a great place; they are personable and I even messed my insurance up had to call back-very patient. Simply the best!!
Dr. Galbrecht is one of the most up-beat, friendly, caring, supportive persons I have met in a medical profession. I have a bit of an advantage knowing the Galbrecht family before seeing her, but her service and attention to my eye needs are above all others I've been to before. She knows her stuff, isn't boring, very efficient and even takes the time to ask about my family and show a genuine interst in my response to her. I highly recommend Dr. Galbrecht to anyone, but especially if you're looking for a new eye Dr, she and her staff comprised of her family will take great care of you and your eye needs too.
Galbrecht Eyecare is awesome! They got me in and out within an hour! They are also priced very reasonably for the services they offer! I was shocked when my contact lenses were cheaper with Galbrecht Eyecare than Wal-Mart or 1800 contacts. They are honest and convenient!
Great service! Well priced and great location!

Focus on Technology
Each month we focus on some of the advanced tools and equipment that we use at Galbrecht Eyecare to provide our patients with the most professional care.
This month the focus is on the Occulus Visual Field Analyzer which checks to see if there are any gaps in a patient’s field of vision. Our new Oculus Visual Field has the range to perform fast screening tests for general eye examinations, but it can also be programmed to do a more thorough threshold test for patients with glaucoma or neurological damage.
In addition to Glaucoma, our Visual Field Analyzer has been instrumental in diagnosing other diseases which would have otherwise gone undetected.
