Helping You See the World Around You

Willcockson Eye Associates, P.C.

Welcome to Willcockson Eye

Hello and welcome to Willcockson Eye Associates, P.C. This private health care facility is the result of a group of physicians dedicated to providing the best possible medical and surgical eye care.

We would like to thank you for selecting us for your eye care needs. We will provide you and your entire family with the very best of care.

You can expect to learn a lot about your health during a routine eye examination. Our physicians can detect subtle changes in the eye which may signal the beginning of sight threatening conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and signs of diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and some types of cancer.

The Practice

Willcockson Eye Associates originated in 1950 when Dr. Thomas H. Willcockson started his practice in Yankton, South Dakota. Dr. John R. Willcockson joined his father in the practice of ophthalmology in 1975. Both have now retired - Tom in 1991 and John in 2006. Dr. Patrick H. King joined the practice in 1983 and retired in 2013. Dr. Paula A. Hicks joined the practice in 1994, Dr. Gregory A. Kouri in 1996, Dr. Karen E. Dickes in 2011 and Dr. Brady Betten joined in 2015.

A satellite office is operated in Norfolk, Nebraska. The physicians perform surgery at Avera Sacred Heart Hospital in Yankton, South Dakota; SurgiCenter of Norfolk in Norfolk, Nebraska; and Avera St. Michael’s Hospital in Tyndall, South Dakota.
