Welcome to Littlefield Optometry

Dr. David Littlefield, our licensed optometrist at Littlefield Optometry, provides Kansas City area residents with comprehensive eye and vision care. From routine eye exams and prescription eyewear to pre- and post-op surgical care, our eye care services can handle your needs.

Eye and Vision Exams 

Every member of your family needs regular eye exams. For the children, early treatment of vision problems can improve grades at school and athletic performance on the field. For the adults in the family, vision exams can detect the earliest signs of disorders and let you update your lens prescriptions before you even notice the need.

Frame Selection 

Your eyeglasses make an impression on everyone you meet. That is because they are one of the first things people notice when they meet you. That is why you will want to spend as much time as you need trying on glasses from our large selection of stylish eyeglass frames at Littlefield Optometry. We will help you find the frames that fit your face, your skin tones, and your personality.

Contact Lens Exams and Fittings

Our Littlefield Optometry eye doctor and his staff can help you determine if contact lenses are right for you, and which kind are the best choice. We can often even help patients with hard-to-fit challenges comfortably wear contact lenses. We can also help you find cosmetic contact lenses to dramatically transform your eye color or camouflage irregularities in the color of your eyes.


There is yet another alternative to eyeglasses and contact lenses for those with vision challenges. Orthokeratology, often called Ortho-K, is a vision disorder treatment in which the patient wears custom-fitted lenses that are worn overnight. The lenses temporarily reshape the cornea of the eye for improved vision. Dr. Littlefield and his team can advise whether Ortho-K is right for you, fabricate your special lenses, and show you how to use them.

Pre- and Post-op Surgical Care

Patients undergoing complex eye surgeries such as LASIK and PRK, among others, can start the process at Littlefield Optometry. We will answer your questions about the surgical procedure, tell you how to prepare for it, and then handle your recovery after the procedure.  


This is a prescription cosmetic treatment for improving the appearance of eyelashes. Women entrust Littlefield Optometry for the LATISSE method of growing eyelashes that are longer, thicker, and darker.

Vision Therapy 

Not all vision problems must be treated with prescription lenses or surgery. Vision therapy encompasses treatment techniques that can bring vision improvements by enhancing the neurological connection between the eye and the brain.
