Donna started working in optometry in 2007. After a few short years she was eager to learn more so she started working in ophthalmology. In our office Donna’s job title is a super tech, what this means is that she is with the patient from the time patients walk into our office until the time they walk out. Donna will start by pretesting the patient, after pre testing she will walk the patient into the exam room to get them ready to see our doctor. When the patient is ready for the doctor Donna will remain in the room with the patient recording notes for the doctor while the exam is being preformed. If any extra testing is done she would at this time do testing with the patient as well. After the patient had finished with the doctor Donna walks with the patient to optical and help them choose a frame. Donna will also be the one placing the eye glass order with the patient, choosing the best lens and coatings for each patient. Donna also specialized in the fitting,adjusting, trouble shooting and fixing of eye glasses. She is also experienced in contact lenses so she often teaches our contact lens classes to our new contact lens patients.
