Optometrist speaks to Hancock Rotarians

March 29, 2007

HANCOCK - Optometrist Dr. James H. Dolly of Wheeler's Optical addressed Hancock Rotarians at their weekly lunch meeting recently at the Park-n-Dine.

Dr. Dolly recalled the circumstances leading to his decision to open a full-time Hancock office with Rusty and Debbie Wheeler. The Wheelers invited Dr. Dolly to visit the town and to visit a possible office space owned by Bud Pittman.

Pittman encouraged Dr. Dolly to establish a business by offering very reasonable rent and said if Dr. Dolly would "treat people fair; they would stick with him." Dr. Dolly said he has found this to be true.

Dr. Dolly said, "It is an amazing time to be living, and there have been some amazing changes in optometry in the past 30 years." He closed his presentation by listing "Dolly's Top Five Changes in Eye Care": the use of soft lenses; the use of progressive vision lenses; integration of electronic mechanical equipment with computers; the use of medical lasers in eye care; and, the most phenomenal change in eye care, in Dr. Dolly's opinion, cataract surgery with lens implant, which has improved vision for thousands of his patients.
