All of our optometrists have completed an additional year of residency training to better serve you in the areas of ocular disease and pediatric eye care.  Less than 10% of practicing optometrists have completed this additional year of training.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs.  Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health history, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Nathan Bjork, OD

Dr. Bjork received his undergraduate degree in Vision Science from Ferris State University. He earned his Doctoral degree from the Michigan College of Optometry, where he graduated first in his class. He then elected to complete an additional year of Residency training in Ocular Disease at the Cincinnati Eye Institute.

In addition to his work at Middletown and Settlers Walk EyeCare, Dr. Bjork has continued to work as an optometric consultant at the Cincinnati Eye Institute in the Retina Clinic. He also holds clinical privileges at the Atrium Medical Center.

Dr. Bjork is a volunteer presenter of the Realeyes program at local elementary schools. This program helps explain the importance of eye health to children. He has also presented educational programs about eye care for diabetic patients in Middletown and Springboro. “Educating the public about the importance of good eye health is an important part of my role as an eye doctor. When patients understand the reasons for treatment or follow-up visits, they tend to be much more compliant. This results in improved outcomes and prevention of vision loss.”

Dr. Bjork is certified in the Treatment and Management of Ocular Disease. He has achieved Fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry. He is a member of the American Optometric Association, the Ohio Optometric Association, and the Cincinnati Optometric Association.
