Caring for your eyes is the most important thing that we do. As eye care professionals, we know how complex and fragile our eyes are. Working closely with our patients, we watch for changes in visual acuity and eye health.
The American Optometric Association recommends annual or bi-annual eye exams, even if you feel your vision is ideal. This frequency ensures that vision-threatening eye diseases, such as glaucoma, are detected before they have had the opportunity to impair vision.
Most eye diseases develop with no signs of trouble. Glaucoma, for example, slowly carves away at your peripheral vision- most people don’t notice until they already have some degree of tunnel vision.

The eye exam is broken down into two parts: pre-testing, which is completed by an optometric technician, and doctor evaluation, which is completed by Dr. Baldwin.The pre-testing involves several non-invasive diagnostic tests, including:
Dr. Baldwin will then perform a few additional examinations, including:
Dr. Baldwin may perform additional tests as needed.
Our eye exams serve two functions: they determine how well you can see (and whether or not you need glasses); they look for signs of developing diseases and other conditions that may influence your vision.
Most of the time, when someone needs to wear corrective lenses it’s because of a common refractive error. There are four types of refractive errors: myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia (also called “aging eye condition”).
During the eye exam we will determine if your vision requires correction. Most refractive errors can be managed successfully with corrective lenses (eyeglasses and contact lenses).
Unfortunately, our eyes aren’t always the best at telling us when something is wrong. With many eye diseases being asymptomatic – meaning they don’t have obvious or painful symptoms – detecting them before they influence your vision is key.
Our practice uses some of the most advanced technology available in eye care today. Using it, we can detect even the most subtle of changes to your vision.
Working together, we can reduce the influence of eye diseases by as much as 95%.
Dr. Baldwin has been wonderful to us. Her knowledge and thoroughness is very high and her staff are friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. We have been very pleased with the care and consideration we have received from them all.
I've never had FUN selecting glasses before. The Eye Gallery team is fantastic--who knew that getting new glasses is better than shoe shopping?
Dr. Baldwin and her team are amazing. Megan is a top notch optometrist and her team is well-trained and professional. You won't find a better eye doctor in the Wichita area.
What an amazing experience. From the beautiful office, to the knowledgeable staff. The best part was how Dr. Baldwin actually listened to me and cared about the things that I cared about. I've had a lot of bad experiences with doctors in the past, but she dispelled them all in my first visit. I highly recommend to anyone.
I've been going to the The Eye Gallery for 2 years now and find Dr. Baldwin and her staff to be top notch. They are very easy to communicate with and offer excellent service.
