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.
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.
Upon completion of his residency, Dr. Bjork joined Middletown Eye Care and continued to work at the Cincinnati Eye Institute in the Retina Clinic for fifteen years. “I am thankful to have had the opportunity to gain the clinical skill and knowledge to manage patients with complex retinal problems. There are many systemic medical problems that can manifest in the retina which is why it is the most interesting and complex part of the eye. That’s also why it has always been my passion.”
Dr. Bjork is certified in the Treatment and Management of Ocular Disease. He also holds clinical privileges at Atrium Medical Center. He has achieved Fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry. He is a member of the American Optometric Association and the Ohio Optometric Association.
Dr. Landrum received his undergraduate degree in Biology and Doctorate of Optometry from The Ohio State University. During his optometric education Dr. Landrum also received a Master’s degree in Vision Science for his work on the eye’s ability to focus on various print sizes while reading. He then elected to complete an additional year of residency training in Primary Care/Ocular Disease at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in Dayton, Ohio.
Dr. Landrum has won several clinical excellence awards including: the Gas Permeable Contact Lens Clinical Excellence Award for outstanding performance in the clinical environment of GP contact lens fitting; the Interstate Optical Nexus Award; and The James Bing Memorial Award in recognition of research accomplishments in Vision Science.
He has also presented educational programs about eye care for diabetic and glaucoma patients at the Dayton VAMC. “Taking proper care of our eyes is one of the most important things that we can do for our bodies. Routine eye examinations can detect medical or eye problems that are without symptoms. Early detection of these problems can lead to better overall health, maintained good vision and a good quality of life.”
