We combine personal attention with state of the art instrumentation!

Route 40 Sign Welcome to the Bear Eye Center, the first eye care practice located in Bear, DE. Since opening in 1992, over 40,000 patients have trusted their eye care to Dr. MacKewiz. The original office moved from Governors Square Shopping Center to a free standing state of the art medical office in 1999, conveniently located on Rt. 40 between Routes 1 and 13.

Unlike the large chains, our emphasis is on "personal attention" and long-term relationships. We are a family oriented practice and we see patients of all ages, many of whom have been returning since their first visit in 1992. Thanks to many loyal patients who continue to refer friends and family, we continue to grow while several other eye care practices in Bear have closed. Unlike some offices where you see a different Doctor each time you visit, you will see the same Doctor every time at the Bear Eye Center. Although the practice is known as "Bear Eye Associates", Dr. MacKewiz is the only Doctor.

Building Although we provide personal attention, we realize we can't provide adequate care with out the proper instrumentation. That is why we continue to reinvest in the latest technology. Many of our testing and imaging instruments are the same ones used at major medical centers and universities such as the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. One example of this is our recently acquired scanning laser, used to image the structure of the optic nerve and monitor it for subtle changes. This is especially useful for diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma.

So, if you're tired of seeing a different Doctor every time you visit your current Doctor's office, or simply want a modern facility with the latest technology, give us a call. You can also schedule your appointment right now by clicking on the "Schedule Your Appointment Online" box below.

Now you can receive personal attention utilizing the latest technology close to home, so you don't have to drive to Philadelphia or Baltimore.
