F When it comes to your vision, eye .... care patients want to make sure they have the best - best diagnosis, quality care, and personal, friendly service. ..... All can be found at Dr. Ronn E. McDaniel, Optometrist in Ortonville. Dr. McDaniel has an extensive history in the field of optometry. A 1991 graduate of Pacific University College of Optometry, he spent six years with the Indian Health Service at hospitals in Alaska and South Dakota before coming to Ortonville. i Along with optometric assistants I Pat Sester, Beverly Prior and Barb Iverson, McDaniel and his staff bring years of experience in helping to meet the needs of his patients. While in Bethel, AK, McDaniel served as Chief of Optometry, which delivered eye care to very remote regions, encompassing 54 Yupic Eskimo  villiages and implemented the construction of two more clinics. In the fall of 1994, he began working at Pine Ridge Indian Hospital, Pine Ridge, SD, where he expanded the program with more optometrists and staff to better serve the children, diabetics, ocular diseases and : traumatic eye injuries. Being responsible for supervision of other optometrists on the staff as l well as optometry students serving their internships, McDaniel says he enjoyed his experience with the : Indian Health Service. It has been his goal to have his own practice and be an active member of a small community. He purchased Dr. Yaeger's clinic in 1997. Among the specialized machines used in Dr. McDaniel's office is the posterior segment camera, which is used to document conditions of the retina and oftentimes systemically related disorders. He also uses a phoropter for the refractive portion of the exam. Another instrument used is the keratometer, which McDaniel says is necessary to measure the surface curvature of the eye, necessary to fit contact lenses and monitor other corneal conditions. "We also use a computerized visual field machine to measure the progression of glaucoma in patients and monitor other neurological disorders affecting the visual system," McDaniel says. He has had extensive education to effectively diagnose and treat glaucoma. Serving patients from as young as two months to 104 years old with several methods of determining a correction is available in Dr. McDaniel's office. "We do refractive surgery consultations, pre and post- operative evaluations for several different surgeries and follow ups on laser refractive surgeries," he says. Beginning March 8, McDaniel will be offering opthomologicai services evaluatin atients for surgery by Dr. J.P. who is currently performing surgeries in the area at Madison, Benson, Montevideo, and Granite Falls. "This will give people additional access to their surgical needs as well as benefit the Ortonville Hospital, he said. Dr. McDaniel enjoys helping patients of all ages, and particularly enjoys working with young peoplel He adds, Some younger patients may be experiencing learning problems just because of their visual system, and it's challenging and fulfilling to see a change in their learning with just a pair of lenses or vision training." "Elderly patients have visual challenges such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and other sight- threatening disorders," he says. In addition, McDaniel says some patients have benefitted from anti- oxidants and zinc vitamin therapy for their dry form of macular degeneration. Literature has also been coming out lately suggesting the use of Billberry and a caratenoid called Lutein which can be found in dark, leafy green vegetables such as kale and raw spinach as well as in an over- the-counter form. An additional service for his patients is the many different trial pairs of contact lenses that he carries. "There are several new advantages in the bifocal contact lens i L ! , :: ;/i  we are implementing a new disposable bifocal contact system soon, making it much easier for contact lens wearers to obtain better vision as the need for a bifocal approaches," he said. And when one just can't decide which frames look best, Dr. McDaniel stocks more than 550 different frames, and his staff will help patients select a frame to compliment appearance and meet their particular needs. "We also are carrying the latest in premium products that you are currently seeing in the media," says McDaniel. "I wanted to be an independent practitioner, which is one reason why we came here," he says. "It wasn't a quick decision to move here; it took a lot of prayer and faith. We wanted a town with an excellent school system like Ortonville's, and the lake area fits well with our interests of hunting, fishing and archery." Bringing his many years of experience to the Ortonville area, McDaniel says he and wife Carol have three children, Kella, 16, Trever, 12, and Tucker, 11, who all enjoy living and working here very much. "This wasa great move for us and we have been tly blegsed;by God, ir the friends we've made and the clinic that we've purchased," he says.
