January 22nd 2018

Come to the next meeting prepared to take a group picture!

We need all members present for the picture and the membership drive kick off! 

This Week: Barry Winston of Amador Valley Optometry

Dr. Barry Winston has been in practice in Pleasanton for over 30 years, and has seen a lot of growth and changes: no more cows and orchards in the middle of town.

He has been a TVEA member since 1989. His wife, Marilyn, is a Registered Nurse in the intensive care unit. Dr. Barry, graduating in the first class of the 4-year Optometry School at UC Berkeley, has been teaching one day a week at UC Berkeley School of Optometry in the contact lense clinic for over 25 years. He learns a lot from his students; they keep him sharp, and he gets to use the latest state-of-the- art equipment.

Most people want to know the difference between an optometrist and an ophthalmologist. Besides about $250,000 per year, an ophthalmologist goes one step beyond optometrists by being able to perform surgery. Otherwise, they offer the same care and services, checking eyes and diagnosing and treating eye disease. Dr. Barry can diagnose your condition, recommend the proper ophthalmologist for your surgery and then do all of your follow-up care.

A complete appointment should take about 45 minutes to 1 hour. A large practice will have approximately 35 appointments per day. An ophthalmology practice will see 45-60 patients a day. Amador Valley Optometric schedules 10-15 appointments a day in order to give the best care possible to their patients.

To have your eyes examined, to purchase eye-wear, or to refer someone who needs eye care or a second opinion, call Dr. Barry Winston at Amador Valley Optometric 462-2600.
