My name is Dr. Joseph Dollak (Joey) and I have been in practice for 9 years and private practice for over 12 years. My training is from Stephen F. Austin and the Southern College of Optometry. I became an optometrist in 2000 and spent my first couple of years working in a medical based practice with an ophthalmologist. This environment enhanced my experience in medical and surgical related eye care. Co-managment of cataract, retinal, cornea (including RK, PRK, and LASIK) surgeries was all part of a normal day. Ocular disease, infections and foreign body removal were also standard daily needs. My current practice is quite capable of handling any of these ocular health problems while also offering special testing for glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic wellness exams.

That all sounds cool but most people come to see me to "make them see better". Vision is a very simple yet complex process. I personally believe my job is to make you see more comfortably and not just clearer. Good vision is also a matter of education. I feel it is just as important for you to know how and why a product is working for you, as the quality and time of your exam. So feel free to bring in your visual concerns and ask a lot of questions.

How do we take care of your prescriptions? We do this at YPOV via advanced optical products such as the latest progressive lense technologies, lense materials and coatings. Also, 60%+ of my adult population are wearing multifocal contacts for an array of visual demands. The optical hosts a variety of fashion forward frames and designer/sports sunglasses. And for those back-up glasses or price conscious shoppers we sell a $100 complete pair of polycarbonate glasses in many styles and colors.
