Dr. Megan Baldwin, Eye Doctor

Born and raised in Kingman, Kansas, Dr. Baldwin is thrilled to practice what she loves so close to home. She can’t imagine anything better than to care for her community and build strong ties with new friends and colleagues.

Dr. Baldwin chose eye care as her career because she has always wanted to help people. Providing quality care is incredibly important to her.

In an age where some experiences can feel rushed, she is proud to give her patients the time and diligence they deserve. Dr. Baldwin wants to do more than simply “see” you—she wants to learn more about you and how she can best serve your needs. Your relationship matters.

Dr. Baldwin invites you to schedule adult eye exams and children’s eye exams for yourself and your family. Whether you have concerns about specific eye diseases or are simply seeking an updated prescription and new glasses, she will always do her best to meet all your needs as your eye doctor in Wichita.

When Dr. Baldwin is not in the office caring for her patients, she enjoys making memories with her husband, Aaron, and her 2 sweet kids, Parker and Stella!

Eye Exams

Our comprehensive eye exams for adults and seniors, as well as children, include a thorough evaluation of your vision, eye health, and overall well-being. We use technology and diagnostic tools to detect potential concerns early.

Dr. Baldwin is a mother of 2 young children herself and understands the importance of creating a comfortable and welcoming environment for patients of all ages.

Her experience caring for her own children supports her gentle and understanding approach. She takes the time to help even the youngest patients feel at ease during their eye exams.

Contact lenses can be a convenient and comfortable alternative to glasses for many people. At a contact lens exam, your eye doctor will guide you through the fitting process to help you find the right lenses for your specific needs and lifestyle.

Dry eye is a common condition that can cause irritation, discomfort, and blurry vision. Our eye doctors offer a variety of diagnostic tools and dry eye treatment options to help address symptoms like red eyes and burning sensations. Our goal is to help improve your overall eye comfort.

How Often Should You Go to the Eye Doctor?

Regular eye exams are important for your vision and health. Your eye doctor can help prepare an exam schedule that works for you, but the general guidelines include the following recommendations:

  • Children: School-aged children should get an eye exam every year, with other checkups as recommended by your eye doctor.
  • Adults (20–39): Healthy adults should usually get an eye exam every 2 years.
  • Adults (40+): Adults 40 and up may benefit from eye exams every 1–2 years, as the risk of some eye conditions can increase with age.
  • Adults (65+): Annual exams have become increasingly important in detecting and managing conditions like glaucoma and cataracts for adults 65 and up.

Ultimately, your eye doctor can help you determine what exam schedule works for you based on your needs.

What Does OD Mean for Eye Doctors?

An OD (Doctor of Optometry) is a primary eye care provider—similar to a family doctor for your eyes. Optometrists can diagnose and treat a wide range of eye conditions, prescribe medications, and provide corrective lenses.

Ophthalmologists are also medical doctors, but they are more focused on treating eye diseases through surgery.

Dr. Baldwin is an optometrist and is proud to be your doctor for all your eye care needs in Wichita.

What Happens During an Eye Exam?

A comprehensive exam with your eye doctor typically takes about 1 hour and may include:

  • A review of your medical history and family history
  • A discussion of any current eye problems or concerns
  • Vision tests to assess near and distance vision, depth perception, and peripheral vision
  • An eye pressure test to screen for glaucoma
  • An examination of the internal and external structures of the eye
