Coronavirus and Contact Lenses?

The CDC advises people to not touch their face, during the coronavirus pandemic. That challenge may be hard enough, but if you wear glasses, that challenge is a little bigger.

"There is a concern there that possibly you could self-inoculate yourself by touching your eyes with contaminated hands," said Optometrist Dr. Kirby Redman, of Redman Gelinas Eye Care.

The doctors and staff at Redman & Gelinas Eye Care want to welcome you to our office. We have proudly served the good people of all ages in the Northwoods of Wisconsin since 1980 and we are committed to providing for all your eye care and eye wear needs well into the future. This area is our home and we want you to know we will continue to be here when you need us in the future for all your eyecare needs.

Drs. Redman and Gelinas and staff bring a wealth of education and training to caring for your eyes, offering expert care to all of their patients.



Eye Care Experience Re-Defined

Eye Exams

The comprehensive exam begins with a through history to access the patient’s needs and concerns. Then we move onto the refraction to be able to determine the actual prescription. In doing so the binocular status of the eyes will be examined to evaluate how the eyes work together more


Authentic designer sunglasses custom-made with your prescription. Protect your eyes from the sun and harmful UV rays in style. You find the perfect pair, and we'll make sure you get perfect vision more

Hard and Soft Contact Lenses

Dr. Redman & Dr. Gelinas are very experienced in fitting all types of contact lenses. These can range from a variety of soft and hard contact lens options. Here we will take careful measurements of the shape of the eyes to be able to find the right fit more

A Public Health Program for Infants

The truth is that 80% of everything children learn comes through their eyes. We strongly believe in early prevention and exams as a key to a healthy way of seeing. Many times children’s vision problems go undiagnosed leading to poor eyesight and interfering with learning and behavior. At Redman & Gelinas Eyecare we work patiently with your child to make the experience fun and relaxing more


Redman & Gelinas Eye Care is one of the highest rated optometry offices in Northern Wisconsin. Our customers speak for themselves.

We love this place! Thorough eye exam. Dr. Redman explains everything as he's great! Excellent selection of eye wear. Attentive staff.

Chuck D.

Redman & Gelinas Eye Care is the best optometry shop in Minocqua! Dr. Gelinas and his staff are always friendly, cool, and on the ball. I would not dream of going anywhere else for my peepers and neither should you. Get in there and get your eyes checked and pick up some cool frames while you're at it (they have so many).

Jen D.

The customer service is above and beyond. Always helpful, always take the extra step to make sure everything is perfect and understood. Glasses cleaned and adjusted to fit perfectly, tests and exams explained so you know what's going on.
