6988288_orig.jpgDid you know that Broome Optical has been in business since 1929? That is over 85 years of providing state-of-the-art optical care and solutions to our neighbors in Amarillo and the Panhandle of Texas. We are proud to continue our service to our neighbors today and well into the future. Thank you for voting us Best of Amarillo in the Eyewear category!

How Did We Get Here?

In 1929, Ed Broome decided to open up an office on the 1st floor of the Fisk Building in downtown Amarillo. From this first location, Broome Optical offered the best in optical care to patients of all ages for almost 50 years.

Demand for high-quality eye care grew over the years. To meet this demand, the practice expanded to a second location in Wolflin Village in 1968. In fact, it was one of the original tenants in this cornerstone of Amarillo business. They remained there for over a decade.

By the late 1970s, consolidating the two offices seemed to be the best choice. That’s when Broome Optical decided to build the current location on Olsen Boulevard. Their goal was to focus on providing the best optical care possible in one central location, easily accessed by all their patients. This is where we’ve remained since 1978.

What Services Does Broome Optical Provide?

The practice here at Broome Optical has evolved over the years. Our primary service, from the beginning, has been providing effective eye care for our patients.

Our team of optometrists test visual accuracy and screen for vision related conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinopathy. They have the background and expertise to develop effective treatment plans.

One area of specialization Broome Optical brings is treatment for dry eye syndrome. With the dry climate of the Texas Panhandle, chronic dry eye irritation is a common complaint from our patients. LipiFlow is one of the solutions we offer our patients. This state-of-the-art treatment can bring relief in less than 15 minutes.

What Are The Driving Principles Behind Broome Optical?

From the day the first office opened in the Fisk Building, the focus of the Broome Optical team was to provide every patient with the best eye care possible. This was the focus of Ed Broome and it remains the focus of today's team of optometrists, opticians and optometric assistants.

We want to build ongoing, long-lasting relationships with every patient that walks through our doors. That begins with friendly, professional service. Our staff strives to listen to our patients' needs and to communicate effective solutions with care.

Broome Optical in Amarillo looks forward to providing professional eye care for another 85 plus years into the future.
