Dr. Ryan Broyles made a decision to pursue a career in optometry after his grandmother began losing vision from macular degeneration twenty years ago. “Despite medical intervention, she just kept getting worse. I wanted to do something to help her,” he remembers. “Helping other visually impaired people is important to me.” Dr. Broyles graduated from Rockhurst University in 2002 and completed his education at Indiana University in 2007. He is clinical director of Low Vision Midwest and co-owner of Bennett EyeCare Midwest, one of the largest primary eyecare practices in Kansas City. A fellow of the International Academy of Low Vision Specialists and a member of the American Optometric Association’s Low Vision Section, Dr. Broyles has helped hundreds of patients across Missouri, Kansas and neighboring states in regaining some independence through better vision. Dr. Broyles focuses on providing personalized care to every low vision patient. He is passionate about empowering people to live happier, more independent lives.
He and his wife of 13 years reside in Blue Springs, Missouri with their four children. The family enjoys movies, camping, and neighborhood walks. Dr. Broyles and his family belong to St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Parish in Blue Springs.
