Welcome to Eye & Laser Physicians

When it comes to vision, you want the very best for you and your family.    Eye and Laser Physicians are committed to giving our very best.  We are the most comprehensive Ophthalmology practice in the Walla Walla Valley.  We are staffed with MDs, ODs and licensed Opticians.  For convenience,  we provide our patients with the full range of eye care all under one roof.  Make Eye & Laser Physicians your Walla Walla eye care home.

Linda Gunshefski, MD is an experienced cataract surgeon performing cataract surgery in Walla Walla since 1996.  Dr Gunshefski also offers macular degeneration treatment right in our office. Lucentis, EYLEA or Avastin are available to our patients.  There is no need to be inconvenienced by monthly trips out of town for these important vision preserving procedures.  Andrew Edwards, MD is a graduate of Loma Linda University Medical School and during his residency rapidly matured into a phenomenal surgeon.  Dr Edwards was heavily recruited by PCLI but preferred to return to his hometown and  take care of his community.  You can take advantage of that decision and have your eye surgery conveniently done in Walla Walla at Providence St Mary Medical Center or the Walla Walla General Hospital.

Founded in 1982 as the Walla Walla Eye Center by Mark E. Kuechenmeister, MD, the practice has been the premiere Ophthalmology practice in the Walla Walla Valley. While preserving our foundation of excellence and commitment to detail, the practice has evolved to embrace the benefit of modern technology.  We have used electronic medical records since 2008.   We employ state of the art equipment like the Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT or the Haag Streit Octopus 900 perimeter for diagnostic testing.   These computerized machines perform tests faster and provide patient’s with increased comfort.  The information these tests provide are invaluable to the treatment of diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic eye disease.

Mark Jones and Connie Beckman have over 50 combined years of licensed optician experience.  Come in and get a free adjustment so you can meet Walla Walla’s best opticians.  We have reduced our lens prices by 25% to help our patients during these difficult economic times. The Eye & Laser Physicians’ optical shop has nearly 1000 designer frames for our patients to choose from.  If you buy your eyeglasses elsewhere in Walla Walla you should compare prices, you will be pleasantly surprised.  We offer the newest lenses available today or can provide you with a complete pair of glasses for as little as $60.00.  Whatever your needs are, make Eye & Laser Physicians your eye care home, we are best choice in sight.
