Guardian Eye Associates

Welcome, and thank you for visiting our website!  If you’re a current patient, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to fulfill your eye care needs.  If you’re a new visitor, we look forward to meeting you and exploring the various options available for correcting or enhancing your vision.

Drs. Conrad, Frey, and Wayburn merged practices in 1995 to offer a range and depth of services.  We have over 60 combined years of medical and surgical eye care.  Dr. Dieckhaus joined our group in 2011 to help to continue our mission to provide excellent eye care to our patients in a friendly and caring environment.  After 30 years in private practice, Dr. Gates Wayburn decided to retire at end of 2014.  Drs. Conrad, Dieckhaus, and Frey will still be available for all of your eye care needs.

We would like to announce the retirement of:

Gates Wayburn, M.D.
