Broome Optical has been providing quality eye care in Amarillo for more than 80 years. As an integral Texas Panhandle business since 1929, our patients continually rank Broome Optical among the top family eye care centers and eyewear providers in the area. (We’ve won Best of Amarillo titles four times!)
Optician Ed Broome opened his first location on the 1st floor of the Fisk Building in 1929, adding another location in 1968 in Wolflin Village as one of the first tenants of this Amarillo staple. Both locations remained open until 1978 when the current location on Olsen was built and all operations were consolidated. A second location was opened in 1988 at 34th and Bell Street, remaining open until 1994.
Through all these transitions, we’ve maintained that “Life Is Worth Seeing,” which means eye care is our No. 1 priority. Every member of the Broome Optical team believes each patient deserves the best eye care possible. Our nationally board certified opticians and optometric assistants have a passion and personality for helping others. Meet our doctors.
We value the relationships we build with our patients. We listen to their needs and strive to communicate solutions in an effective and caring manner.
What We Do
Broome Optical offers in-depth eye exams to test vision accuracy and screen for various eye issues. Using the latest in diagnostic technology, Broome Optical’s eye doctors diagnose and develop treatment plans for macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic eye disease (retinopathy) as well as other eye diseases and disorders.
Due to the dry, arid climate of the Texas Panhandle, Broome Optical has made it a priority to specialize in the treatment of dry eye syndrome. We aim to alleviate chronic dry eye irritation so our patients can enjoy seeing life again. LipiFlow, a system that treats dry eye syndrome in just 12 minutes, is one of the many dry eye solutions Broome Optical provides its patients.
Awarded the Best of Amarillo title year after year, our office is celebrated for our outstanding eyewear selection, and talented, caring optometrists, opticians and office staff. Broome Optical offers a variety of prescription glasses and sunglasses options for children and adults. We’re also a proud provider of quality designer brands, like Ray-Ban and Oakley.
Broome Optical’s eyewear collection includes an array of contact lenses for people with various eyesight requirements. Our eye care team will work with you to find a comfortable fit. Utilizing the most advanced lens materials and designs, Broome Optical’s eye doctors are able to give you sharp eyesight while comfortably wearing contacts.
