Mark Bunde, O.D.
Serving at Fairway and Leawood locations. Dr. Bunde was born in Hastings Nebraska. He earned an undergraduate degree in Biology in 1992 at Cornell College where he played basketball. His Doctorate of Optometry degree was earned from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN in 1997. After graduating from Optometry school he took a job in Kansas City to work in a Pediatric Strabismus office. Two years later he entered into a partnership with four Optometric offices scattered around the Kansas City area. In 2004 he left the partnership to start Fairway Eye Centers with two locations in Fairway, KS and Excelsior Springs, MO. The Excelsior Springs office has since moved to its current location in Liberty. After the purchase, selling, and merging of 16 practices the Fairway Eye Centers now consists of five offices, including the two aforementioned locations and the addition of offices in Leawood, KS and the Overland Park office, located at 135th and Antioch. Dr. Bunde is currently a member of the American Optometric Association, the InfantSee Program, and is on the Board for the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired. He has been an active participant doing mission work at home and abroad. He has traveled to Juarez, Mexico and most recently to Guatemala. The Fairway Eye Centers continue to aid the Barnabe orphanage in Guatemala as well as donating glasses to other needy causes. We are very excited to reach out to Jamaica in 2015. Dr. Bunde lives in Leawood, KS along with his wife Patricia and his two girls.
