We followed Dr. Lexye Bruegman to this location because she is great with my son who got glasses for the first time almost two years ago. She is kind and patient, allowing my son to feel comfortable during the exam and he felt she answered all of his questions. We most recently went in to pick out new frames for him and Stephanie the Optician did a fantastic job listening to him and providing him with options. She helped him find a frame that fit his face well and he feels confident in his new frames!

Dr. Brugeman and her staff are so quick and easy! Her assistant runs tests extremely well and makes it easy to get in and out. Omaha Primary Eye care uses awesome advanced tech, even utilizing a VR headset for eye alignment testing!!
