Our Approach to Optometry

Our one-on-one approach to optometry makes Design Vision and the staff the eye and vision care providers of choice in the Milwaukee area. Our two optometrists (Dr. Sara Falter, O.D. and Dr. Emmylou Swartz O.D. FAAO) both offer the following services: complete eye exams, contact lenses, glasses, glaucoma testing, and pre- and post-operative care. We are trusted by local Ophthalmologists to fit their patients with prescription eye wear (frames and lenses) to maximize the vision from the new prescription.

At Design Vision,  we are dedicated to providing high-quality optometry services in a comfortable, friendly and caring environment. Lots of convenient parking (street, side and back lots) and easy access to our front door make us a stroller and wheelchair friendly location.  Call us at 414.774.0200 or schedule an appointment today online.
