Eyecare Specialties Introduces New Doctor Jill McNaughton

WARRENSBURG, Mo., March 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eyecare Specialties, an optometry practice with locations in Sedalia, Warrensburg, Clinton and, most recently, Lee's Summit, Missouri, is introducing a new doctor on April 1, 2016. Dr. Jill McNaughton has an emphasis in primary care optometry, contact lenses and advanced medical optometry treating such diseases as glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataract detection and monitoring. As such, she will allow the clinic to expand upon the already considerable list of services that it provides. "We couldn't be more excited about the addition of Dr. McNaughton to our team," said Dr. Jason Lake. "With Dr. McNaughton on board, we are better able to assist patients in all aspects of care, making their experience much smoother and easier," he added.

Dr. McNaughton has accumulated considerable amounts of experience during her career. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Missouri at Columbia in 2002. From there, she went on to earn her Doctor of Optometry from the University of Missouri at St. Louis in 2006. She then started practicing and focused on ocular disease and primary care optometry. This gave her a strong foundation for what was ahead. Later, she branched out into focusing on co-management of surgical and medical patients.

Early in her career, Dr. McNaughton worked at the Veteran's Administration Medical Center in Kansas City, Missouri, where she continued to participate in the co-management of surgical and medical patients. This time, the emphasis was on diabetic eye diseases and glaucoma. She then transitioned to her most recent position at Sabates Eye Centers which she held for nearly 10 years before joining the Eyecare Specialties team. Having such exposure to the excellent services provided by Sabates Eye Center will allow for a seamless transition to Eyecare Specialties and their dedication to top-notch patient care.

Eyecare Specialties offers an array of eye and vision services, including eye and vision exams, vision therapy, Ortho-K and more. "Dr. McNaughton really rounds out our team, and we couldn't be happier to have her on board," said Dr. Lake. "Patients really like her, and she genuinely loves what she does. She's a perfect fit for us."

With locations in Warrensburg, Sedalia, Clinton and, just in the last month, Lee's Summit, Eyecare Specialties is a convenient option for local residents who need glasses, contacts, eye exams or other medical services. The clinic can be reached by calling (660) 747-2020.
