The Doctors and staff of Ritter Hagee Optometry strive to treat every patient with compassion, giving them the time, the quality service, eyewear and experience they deserve.  We are based in two locations located in the northern suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio--Blue Ash and Maineville.  Both offices are easy to find and fully staffed including full-service optical dispensaries.  

COVID PROTOCOLS

Out of respect for many of our elderly and/or immunocompromised patients, we are requiring that masks be worn full time inside our office buildings.  We are still trying to maintain social distancing procedures as well. However, we are no longer asking for appointments for eyeglass selection or pickup.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Ritter and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Ritter prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!"

Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and their staff made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. McKee will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else."
    The Harrison Family
