I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Rouse and his amazing staff! I scheduled an appointment ... here because I had been having issues with my eyes for a couple of weeks. My Vision in my right eye was especially bad. I originally went to a different doctor who told me I had dry eye. However, I had a feeling there was more to it than just dry eye, so I made an appointment with Dr. Rouse to have him give me an exam and see if he thought the previous doctors diagnosis was accurate. Dr. Rouse took such good care of me from start to finish! He really cared about what I was going through and listened to all of my concerns. After completing a very thorough exam he determined that I had a lot more going on then just dry eye. It was serious and he knew I was scared. He told me to trust him and to know that “he’s got me”. I do trust him. I’ve never had a doctor tell me something like that before and it felt so reassuring to know that I was in such great hands and that I was finally going to get the answers I was looking for. He explained everything to me in detail about what was happening with my eyes and then immediately referred me to Sound Retina so I could be seen right away to start treatment. I was so scared and couldn’t stop crying but him and all of his staff were so kind and showed me a tremendous amount of empathy for what I was now faced with. For that, I will always be grateful and as long as Dr. Rouse is practicing, he will always be my eye doctor. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

As a former Dispensing Optician for Dr. Rouse, I was enabled to learn and grow more at this practice... than any other practice I worked for before or since. His passion for knowledge is infectious. His commitment to health and wellness is unparalleled. If you need a true comprehensive eye health exam, this is the ONLY place you should be going. You will NOT be disappointed.

Dr. Rouse is very good and takes his time with you during the eye exam. He has a great personality t... hat makes you feel comfortable. To be honest, if you are on a fixed income, their prices for glasses are too high and you may find you want to take your prescription some place else but this is a good eye Doctor!

Want to highly recommend Dr Craig Rouse, optometric physician in Lacey. Here's why: We had an eye em... ergency-of course, on a Sunday morning. A poke in the eye, resulting in Intense pain. Urgent care visit, confirming that part of the cornea was scraped out, received antibiotic scrip and told to contact ophthalmologist on Monday. Also received list of "eye care resources." After an hour back home, with pain increasing, started calling eye drs on list who provided "off-hours emergency care." Kept getting office closed message with "hit this # for emergency care," we did, and they all all returned to initial office closed, hit this # for emergency" message. Even the "big" local eye dr office. Until we called Rouse Eye Care Center. He answered himself, met us at his office within 20 minutes, examined eye, provided pain treatment, drops to keep eye lubricated, and a stronger antibiotic, and scheduled a Wed am follow up visit. Wow! Pain stopped immediately, used antibiotic and lubrication eye drops, and eye was healed by Wed am visit. Woohoo!

Best experience ever. Everyone is so welcoming and nice! I wish I would have got her name but she ev... en remembered me from my phone call when I was making an appointment. If I could give 100 stars I would!

Myopia Management FAQs

What is myopia management?

Myopia management uses certain treatments and technologies to slow or even halt your child's myopia progression. Our myopia control program in Lacey is unique as we have the latest technology and experience to ensure your child's vision remains stable and healthy for years to come.

Is myopia management necessary?

Myopia is more than just poor vision. Childhood myopia raises the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Speak to your eye doctor about the best ways to minimize your child’s risk.

At what age does myopia (nearsightedness) usually start?

Myopia can begin as early as 6 and will usually progress until roughly age 20. The longer it progresses, and the higher the prescription, the greater your child’s risk of sight-threatening eye conditions later in life.

When should my child start myopia management?

For optimal results, myopia management should be started as soon as possible. That said, myopia control can help children and teens of all ages.
