Dr. Waterbury was born and raised in the Battle Creek area and completed his undergraduate studies at Ferris State University. He received his Doctor of Optometry degree from Southern College of Optometry in 1997 and belongs to the American Optometric Association and the Michigan Optometric Association.
Dr. Waterbury makes it a point to stay abreast of the many developments in eye care, particularly in the development of new contact lens designs and materials. He routinely utilizes the most advanced contact lenses available to provide the best vision and the highest level of ocular health. He also works closely with refractive surgeons, performing the preoperative evaluations as well as providing postoperative care. Thus, he is well equipped to discuss the various methods of correcting one’s vision.
Many people cannot be adequately corrected with conventional eyeglasses or contact lenses because of diseases that damage the eye. Dr. Waterbury provides services for these patients with low vision. An evaluation is performed to assess the level of functional vision available, and then various means are explored to provide the highest level of vision possible. This can be as simple as providing good lighting, introducing filters to reduce glare or increase contrast, or special eyeglasses. It may also include the use of various magnifiers and telescopes or even high tech devices like video display units.
Dr. Waterbury is available to see patients Monday through Fridays.
