Price Eye Care has a vision founded on a few basic principals. The first is the Golden Rule, treating others as one’s self would wish to be treated. We treat our patients like family. In fact, many of us that work here are family, and many of our patients are our closest friends and family. A second principal is quality. You may wait a little longer to see our doctor, you may wait a little longer for your glasses to come in — all because we take the time to give you the very best service and the very best quality of care. We are always striving to offer the latest in technology in medical equipment to diagnose and treat your eye health, with contact lenses, and with our eyewear. Third, we believe in working hard and playing hard. There is not a day that goes by that you don’t hear strong laughter throughout the office. Our fun-hearted team is always doing their best to make the patient’s experience the most enjoyable. With that, we work well together — with a goal for excellence as a team — always learning, always improving, and always focused on patient care – together! Lastly, a strong doctor-patient relationship is of utmost importance in our practice. You will find that Dr. Price Kowaleski brings the traditional value of having a sincere “chairside manner” to a modern practice. We practice by our motto which is “Focusing On You Since 2002”.

I just retired form teaching and being a Director of a preschool for 20 years. In my younger days I was an Administration Assistant at Fort Knox, KY working on a 2-star general’s staff. This is where I met my husband Jim. Once married, we were stationed in Gelnhausen, Germany where our son Bobby was born, Fort Riley, KN where our daughter Jessy was born and Fort Hood, TX. My husband retired from the U.S. Army in 1998 and we have lived in McCordsville, ever since.
