Meet James R. Bohdan, OD
Few people realize the tremendous connection between the eyes and general health. So whenever I conduct an eye exam, I explain the purpose of each test and the patient’s prognosis. I’ll inquire about other factors, such as allergies, illnesses or medications that could have an effect on my patients’ vision. I often hear my patients say, 'I’ve never had such a thorough eye exam.' I just want my patients to benefit from the best eye care available.
Over Two Decades of Eye Care Expertise
“I became an optometrist not only because I wanted to help people with their vision problems, but because I find eye care truly fascinating. After over 24 years as an eye-care professional, I still enjoy solving tough cases and making people happy. I've found the best thing l can do for my patients is to really take the time to listen to them and fully explain all of their options. Then, together, we can choose the solution that best fits their work demands and overall lifestyle."

“My patients trust me to provide a high level of care. So I attend a lot of general medical seminars. Sometimes it takes someone outside the profession to remind us of what patients really want. We use each other as sounding boards and help one another continue to provide the kind of care patients want and deserve."

Making an Impact on People's Lives
“I’ve always been a person who enjoys problem solving and striving for excellence. But I knew early in my studies that I also wanted to do something that would make a positive impact on other people’s lives. That's why I chose medicine. I get tremendous satisfaction seeing the difference I make in my patients’ lives each day, especially the hard-to-fit cases.”
