Our office is a special place. While we have one of the best optical departments in the region and take pride in delivering value and compassion to every customer, I believe the primary differentiator that sets us apart is our team. I am grateful to have the very best office staff in the region, bar none. The consistent feedback I receive from our customers is “your staff is amazing”.

Read Dr. Kimball's Bio >


Over 80 Years in Practice! Originally founded in the 1930’s, the practice was called Circle Optical, located on the Circle. In the 1950’s Dr. Jack Bergstom took over the practice and moved it to Louanna St. He practiced there until he sold to Dr. William Houser in 1984, who transitioned it from more of an optical to a comprehensive eye care practice, offering more medical eye care. The practice was moved to our current location in October, 1996. In 2009, Dr. Paul Kimball joined the practice, and it was re-named Midland Eye Associates. Dr. Houser retired in 2011, and Dr. Kimball took over at that time.


Midland Eye Associates is dedicated to maintaining and maximizing your vision with the most comprehensive eye care available. In a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere we will provide personalized care offering the finest eyewear and optical products to enhance your lifestyle. We promise to stay at the forefront of optometry and to use the most advanced technology in our profession.

Our goal is to provide a lifetime of healthy vision. Your vision for the future!


Midland Eye Associates is committed to remain at the forefront of optometry and to grow through education and technology.

We will continue to treat our patients with the utmost care in a family setting and counsel them towards a lifetime of healthy vision.

An important part of future is that we continuously be an active community supporter through our contributions and volunteering

Our patient's health will always be of the utmost importance. With that in mind, we have been using recommendations for opening from the CDC, the American Optometric Association, and our government. Many of these changes will be very different than we are used to.

An appointment will be needed to enter the office and all patients will be screened prior to entering the office (temperature checks, face mask required, COVID questionnaire).  If you are an adult with medical conditions that exempt you from wearing a mask, a doctor's note is required to enter our practice. If these are not met upon screening we will gladly reschedule to a later date.  We will also take appointments for car side glasses pickups and adjustments. We appreciate your patience with these new guidelines.  It truly is a different world and way of doing things but they are meant to keep our patients, staff, and community healthy during the pandemic.  We are looking forward to seeing you all again soon! If you have any questions or concerns please give our office a call.
