Program Description
Visionary Eye is a primary eye care practice with a strong specialty in anterior segment disease, cornea and contact lenses.  Our practice encompasses all areas of Optometry, refractive issues, glaucoma, diabetes, anterior segment pathologies and surgical co-management. Patients range in age from 4 months to 100+ years. We are active participate in the AOA InfantSeeR program.  We are a busy practice with 40-60 patients being seen daily.

All of our doctors have active practices at both of our locations, assuring that a doctor is present in each location daily. We also proctor for the University of Rochester, Flaum Eye Center’s contact lens clinic so both Ophthalmology Residents and Optometry students will interact during their program.

Dr’s DePaolis, Ryan and Hochreiter are all PCO graduates and Dr Su completed a NEWENCO Residency in Corneal and Contact Lenses. Dr DePaolis is the Editor of Primary Care Optometry News and both he and Dr Ryan are frequent speakers at Optometric Symposia across the US.  Dr. Su is also a research optometrist at Bausch & Lomb and Dr. Hochreiter practiced for several years with the Native Alaskan population, specializing in pediatric disorders and glaucoma.

Contact lenses (cosmetic and medical applications) are a large specialty of our practice with a general usage split of 75% soft and 25% GP. Vision Shaping Therapy, keratoconus, post-surgical fitting as well as multifocal and myopia control contact lens applications will be seen regularly.

The extern will also work with our expert staff of opticians, optometric technicians, contact lens specialists and practice director to improve their understanding of office flow, patient communication, billing/coding and utilizing staff to bring out their best abilities.

Our goal is to give our extern full exposure to the possibilities afforded to them in private practice Optometry.
