Your Experience Starts Here

You don't just want an eye exam - you want a fresh experience with an eye doctor who can take care of your medical needs, and a team of design professionals who will fit you with frames that match your style & vibe.

Welcome to the Visionelle experience.


I’m Nytarsha, a doctor of optometry specializing in whole-souled eyecare & designer frames. When I started Visionelle Eyecare here in Zionsville, my mission was to step outside the box by providing top-quality medicine in a modern, spa-like environment.

I know you want to feel like you know your doctor, and trust is earned not given, so here are a few facts about me to start our relationship:

Where I graduated: I received my doctorate at Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Philadelphia where I gained experience in pediatrics.

My professional background: I worked in a corporate practice in California and learned that I do NOT want a corporate practice! That's when Tobe and I decided to make a change here to Indiana.

When I'm not here: I'm a proud mom, a Harry Potter fan, and spend waaay too much time creating comedic videos for our YouTube Channel!

Meet Tobe.

Co-owner of Visionelle Eyecare, Tobe Thomas is a captain for a major US airline and graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering.

We are proud to be a local family-owned business!

In Tobe's words:

When I'm not here: I listen to boring people on YouTube read off facts about space and recount theories on the feasibility of interstellar and trans-dimensional travel, and other “light-hearted” topics. 

Meet Dr. Kerwood!

As an Associate Doctor of Optometry, I do my best to provide genuine, patient-centric care. I believe that in-depth patient education is the cornerstone to patient-lead healthcare. My goal is to build a relationship of trust with each of my patients, that empowers you to direct your own care.

My favorite quote: “If you take the time to listen you’ll hear things no one else hears.”

My professional background: I earned my undergraduate degree from The College of Wooster and my Doctorate of Optometry from The Ohio State University, graduating with honors. I currently practices general optometry and sees patients of all ages; however, I have a special interest in pediatrics, neuro-optometry, and specialty contact lens fitting.

Meet Kelsey.

As Office Manager of Visionelle, Kelsey can't function without her morning coffee and breakfast, but is very bubbly, outgoing, and LOVES to talk!

Her family's favorite holiday is Halloween. Every year they take time to decorate her parents' house with fun/scary decorations and pass out goodies to the kids that trick or treat.

In Kelsey's free time, she loves to hang out with her husband and watch new shows. She hopes to start a family of her own soon.

Favorite coffee drink: Iced pumpkin spice latte with no whipped cream, salted caramel cold foam, with an extra shot of espresso.

Meet Coki.

Long ago, an asteroid crashed down into our planet. From it emerged a girl with multi-colored hair and a special ability...

“What ability?” I hear you ask.

She has the power to help you find the perfect frames that suit your lifestyle! Coki was quickly recruited into the ranks of Visionelle Eyecare and the rest... is history. She enjoys talking about Taylor Swift, hanging out with her close friends, and the color pink!

What Patients Say

Excellent, personable staff. They're knowledgeable, kind, and efficient. I love the glasses I got from here and the doctor was excellent. Can't say enough good things about this place.

Alexis C.

The personnel in the shop were great and patient from the moment you enter. While choosing frames they let you examine each frame as long as you choose, and offer their opinion if you ask. Very relaxed environment!

Robert S.

Dr. Thomas is awesome! Besides from being the best optometrist in the state, she is very engaging, funny, kind and caring. The staff is very friendly and helpful when searching for a new pair of glasses. Especially, if you struggle like me.
