Dr. Jake Letourneau

Dr. Dorsey


Dr. Dorsey, committed to providing an unmatched eye care experience, is an incredible addition to our Limestone Eye Care Team. Dr. Dorsey is originally from Wichita, KS and graduated from the University of Kansas. While at Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee, she was able to follow her passion of serving others by participating in multiple mission trips to Honduras and Mexico.

Over the last near-decade, Dr. Dorsey has had the opportunity to practice in Kansas and Missouri, both in small towns and in Kansas City. She has experience treating multiple ocular diseases including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, dry eye, injuries, and infections. Dr. Dorsey believes that spending the time to educate patients about their eye health and vision should be the standard for every visit and is the key to forming a great relationship with all patients. She is very excited to return to Lawrence and to begin seeing patients!
Outside of optometry, you can find Dr. Dorsey spending as much time as possible with her family. She currently lives with her spouse, five-year-old daughter, and two dogs. She is also an active member at her church

Dr. Jake Letourneau


Dr. Letourneau, originally from Concordia, Kansas, attended the University of Kansas as an undergraduate and student-athlete playing football for the Jayhawks. He received his bachelor's degree in Human Biology in 2003. After graduating from KU, Dr. Letourneau went on to study optometry at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, one of the top optometry schools in the country.

Dr. Letourneau enjoys all areas of eye health care, especially treating ocular diseases such as diabetes, dry eye/ocular surface disease, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. He has written on the importance of early detection of macular degeneration, most recently in Review of Optometric Business.

Dr. Letourneau has a special interest in fitting specialty contact lenses, especially for patients with corneal diseases such as ectasia, keratoconus, and high astigmatism. “To literally change a patient’s visual experience, after years of them struggling with their everyday vision, is one of the most rewarding moments we enjoy as physicians.” He is a member of the Scleral Lens Education Society.

He is passionate about myopia management. “With our creation of Mighty Eyes, our myopia management clinic, we are treating at the highest level, improving the quality of life and future opportunities for children with myopia.” Dr. Letourneau is a member of the American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia control, as well as a certified Brilliant Futures Myopia Management prescriber.

The most rewarding part of Dr. Letourneau’s profession is assisting those in need through SEE International. He travels annually with a group of eye surgeons to Milot, Haiti at Hospital Sacre’ Coeur providing medical and surgical care to thousands of patients in need.

Dr. Letourneau’s greatest accomplishment is being a husband to Karla, and a father to their 5-year-old daughter, Isla. Their family enjoys exercising, traveling, watching Isla participate in sports, always looking for new and memorable experiences.
