  • Eye Protection at Work

    By Sasha L Radford, OD I tend to be a bit accident prone. I’m no equestrian, but after 2 years of horseback riding lessons I should know not to let the horse get so close to the gate that my knee slams into it, requiring a brace for three weeks. Also, how could I have […]

  • Can’t You See???

    By Janelle J Brown, OD Limited sight does not equate to a limited life. According to a poll by the American Foundation for the Blind, people fear vision loss more than cancer, HIV/AIDS, stroke, heart disease, diabetes and other serious health problems. Even with the earliest intervention and best treatment available, sometimes vision loss is […]

  • Dry Eye Syndrome – A lot more than meets the eye

    By Sasha L Radford, OD You’d think that something with such a clear name as “Dry Eye Syndrome” would be pretty straightforward. The eyes are dry so let’s moisturize them. Simple, right? In fact, Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) has many inconsistencies and isn’t always easy to treat. “How can my eyes be dry? They’re always […]

  • Why Optometry?

    By Dr Janelle J. Brown, OD As a patient of Dr. Bryan Stoller’s for years, I was always interested in how the instruments in the office worked, what he was looking for in my eyes, and how he determined the correct eyeglasses prescription. When he allowed me to job shadow during high school, I thoroughly […]

    By Bryan M Stoller, OD Our eyes are one of our most precious assets.  I want you to imagine something.   When imagining it always helps to close your eyes.  However, if you close your eyes you won’t be able to keep reading.  So for now, keep them open and follow along with me.   Imagine […]

  • What’s the future of your vision?

    By Sasha L Radford, OD Why do you go to the eye doctor? Maybe you aren’t seeing as well as you think you could. Perhaps your glasses are broken or you’ve simply run out of contact lenses. Or you may think your current glasses are unstylish and you’re ready for a new look. You go […]

  • Cataract surgery not as bad as many believe

    By Sasha L Radford, OD   “Hopefully I’ll die before I need cataract surgery.” The number of patients that have said this astounds me. It’s often a challenge to convince patients how quick and painless cataract surgery and its recovery can be. Often patients are so apprehensive they think they’d rather endure poor vision than […]

  • Spots before the eyes

    By Sasha L Radford, OD What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when a child has red, watery eyes? “Pink eye” is the dreaded verdict, as it can empty an entire classroom in a matter of days. Bacterial conjunctivitis is usually the culprit, especially in preschool or grade school-aged children. There are many […]

  • The fading rug

    By Sasha L Radford, OD There was once an exquisite oriental rug on the parlor room floor of a small family home in the country. The rug was quite expensive and had adorned the room for many decades. Its owner took as much pride in its vibrant colors and complex patterns as she did in […]

  • Charting Eye Examinations: From Papyrus to PC

    By Reid A. Pettit, OD To archaeologists, the three primary ages are the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, and  the Iron Age.  I come from what could be called the Paper Age, an age which encompassed much of the Bronze and all of the Iron Age.  By deductive reasoning, therefore, I have been around long […]
