Dr. James Rubin, over 30 years experience --
Our practice dedicated to excellence since 1984 in the north Kansas City area --
The only VA Residency Certified Optometrist in the Northland by the VA Medical Center --
Our practice has the most advanced diagnostic instrumentation for ocular diseases and the only practice to have the new Visionix 120 for the MOST precise measurements of the EYE. --
Dr. Rubin and his staff are committed to providing every patient with an exceptional level of care and attention. At the Rubin Eye Center, we are proud to be privately owned and operated. Our dedicated staff works together as a team to provide high-quality comprehensive eye care.
Our compassionate and understanding doctors take pride in paying close attention to each patient's needs. We at the Rubin Eye Center are in our 37th year of practice in Gladstone and the Northland. Dr. Rubin is the only doctor in the north Kansas City area to have completed a residency certification program at the Veterans Medical Center in Kansas City and complete an externship with the US Department of Health.
Our office is also proud to have the most up-to-date diagnostic instrumentation in the area. We also have our own lab for providing same day service on most prescriptions and servicing those emergency situations.
We are also proud to be able to offer Wellness Retinal Photography to our patients. Our Carl Zeiss Fundus Camera and our Visionix are just one of many instruments that sets our office apart from retail vision centers. Please ask about our wellness retinal photo offers when you come in for your exam.
Many insurance plans and VSP offer a substantial discounted rate for these photos that allow the doctor to detect glaucoma, hypertension, vascular diseases, nutritional disorders, macular degeneration, diabetes, and many other systemic and ocular diseases.
The Rubin Eye Center is one of the very few offices in the North Kansas City area to have an Ocular Coherence Tomographer (SD-OCT.) This OCT is able to provide a layer-by-layer analysis of the retina with a resolution highly superior to fundus ophthalmoscopy (over 150 years old) and/or even fundus photography. Routine ophthalmoscopy misses the vast majority of diseases in early stages. This instrument is also referred to in literature as "optical non-invasive biopsy method" of examining the front and back of the eye. The OCT is also the single most important diagnostic and prognostic indicator for determining macular edema in patients with diabetes.
Be sure to select an office that provides superior retinal digital imaging and OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) imaging for providing an even more accurate diagnosis of your eyes. Because of our educated staff and advanced diagnostic equipment, we consider ourselves to be a premier elite eyecare center.
