COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alpine Vision announced that Dr. Audrey Merryman has joined the Colorado optometry practice. Dr. Merryman graduated with honors from the New England College of Optometry in 2004 and joined Alpine Vision in 2015. Dr. Merryman's training included externships in ocular disease at the US Department of Health and Human Services Indian Health Service and the US Department of Veteran Affairs. In addition, Dr. Merryman completed integrative public health training at Boston's Dimock Community Health Center.
According to Dr. Christopher J. Arbaugh of Alpine Vision, "Dr. Merryman's resume is impressive. In addition to her work in Boston and for the U.S. health services, she also completed pediatric training at Colorado Optometric Center which makes her an excellent addition to our family vision practice. She has great experience working with young children and addressing their specific vision needs. In addition, her impressive externships trained her to work with patients of all ages with very difficult vision problems. We believe that parents can feel confident that Dr. Merryman will always provide the highest level of care possible no matter the age of the patient."
At Alpine Vision, Dr. Merryman specializes in pediatric vision, contact lenses, and the management and treatment of dry eyes. "Her skills complement our practice well," stated fellow Alpine Vision doctor Tyson D. Reuter. "We are proud to call her our colleague. Our primary focus is to provide excellent care for each of our patients and the addition of Dr. Merryman will allow us to do so, even as our practice expands. Her expertise is greatly valued."
Alpine Vision has three locations in central Colorado where they provide comprehensive eye services. In addition to comprehensive eye exams, the practice works with patients who are seeking LASIK vision correction. The doctors of Alpine Vision provide pre-surgery evaluation and post-operative care for LASIK and other eye surgery patients. As with all procedures and treatments, the doctors counsel patients on the recommended procedures as well as the risks of any complications.
"I'm excited to be part of this practice," stated Dr. Audrey Merryman. "Alpine Vision not only offers excellent vision testing with state of the art technology, but we also help our patients manage chronic vision conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. These diseases require early detection and professional treatment in order to prevent or slow the rate of vision loss. I believe that this practice has a lot to offer the central Colorado community."
