Dr. Christena Ward, Dr. Eric Broecker and all the Staff at EyeTech Optometry would like to thank everyone who has voted them Best Eye Care for 14 years in the Summit Daily Newspaper’s yearly “Best of Summit” edition. They are honored to be recognized by their patients.
EyeTech Optometry was started by Optometrist Dr. Christena Ward in 2002. At the time, it was located in Dillon across from City Market and named Complete Family EyeCare.
In 2017, after outgrowing her small space in Dillon, Doctor Ward moved the practice to the new and larger space it now occupies in Frisco across from Whole Foods Market. At the time of the move, the name of the practice was also changed to EyeTech Optometry to better reflect the pratice's focus and investment in the latest eye care technology and equipment.
Despite the location and name change, the pratice is still 100% fully owned and operated by Dr. Ward and will continue providing Summit County locals, familes and visitors with the best possible eye care for many years to come.
