|Opticare Vision Centers is a member of the #FTMFamily|
It is the start of the New Year so if you’re anything like my husband, you have one thing in mind: vision benefits! (I wish I were joking but I’m not- he owns eight pairs of glasses). A new calendar year represents new vision benefits and here to help (and DISCOUNT) your vision care and lens purchase is another member of the FTM advertising family: Opticare Vision Centers.
The practice was started in Newport more than 30 years ago by Drs. Ronald Cooke and George Landon and has since passed to Drs. Keith Sellers and Josiah Young. Dr. Young, Ft. Thomas resident for the past five years along with his wife Elizabeth, is an Ohio State University College of Optometry 2009 graduate. He provided some answers to our questions so we, the readers and community, could get to know his practice a little better.
FTM: What do you do/service do you provide? What makes you unique?
“We are a "full service" eye care practice. That means we do regular eye exams, glasses and contacts, but we also do Diabetic exams and emergency visits […]. Dr. Sellers specializes in treatment of ocular disease and the increasingly popular CRT […]. I like to focus on pediatrics and vision therapy. Studies have shown that about 1 in 4 children have a vision problem. I specialize in diagnosis and treatment of binocular vision disorders in children that are often the cause of problems with school and athletic performance
FTM: What makes you unique?
I started a vision therapy clinic in our office in 2010. Since then we've seen a large amount of kids (and some adults) successfully treat their binocular vision problem with therapy. Our office is one of very few in the area that specialize in binocular vision disorders.
FTM: What has the local community meant to you and your business
One of the things that I have tried to do since I began seeing patients at Opticare is to spread the word about us being a locally owned small business. We're not a large chain, so we don't have the advertising dollars to get the word out. But we feel the best eye care is done by independent doctor’s offices like us, who aren't dictated by corporate earnings or deals with manufacturers to push specific products. We truly want to provide the best care for each and every patient that walks in our door. The people who come into our office are our family, friends and colleagues.
I feel like the Fort Thomas community will rally to support a local small business. So we want to communicate to your readers that we have been serving Northern Kentucky for over 30 years, we're a local small business that is doctor-owned. And the doctors/owners live in Fort Thomas.
FTM: Do you have any events coming up or other things FTM should mention?
We've been in the same Carothers Road building for 25 years, and last year we did a remodel of the office. The remodel not only included the look and feel of the office, it also included bringing in some newer eyeglasses frame lines like Coach, Nine West, Tommy Hilfiger, Vera Bradley, and more. So we spruced up our glasses offerings as well!
As a gift to FTM readers, Opticare Vision Centers is offering a 20% DISCOUNT off the next eyeglasses purchase by mentioning this FTM article (not combinable with any other offers/discounts). For more information, visit their website or their Newport location at 59 Carothers Road.
