Did you know that it’s World Optometry Week? And, at Columbus Ophthalmology Associates, we’re celebrating optometrists for all their incredible work! Today, we’re paying tribute to COA’s Director of Optometry, Dr. Dawn Hartman. A leader and educator for the next generation of optometry students, she is a wonderful doctor who we are proud to have on our COA team.

With everything going on around us, it’s more important than ever to celebrate the unsung heroes who help make our world a better place. Today, we’re paying tribute to Denise Allen, our longest serving employee who is celebrating more than 30 years at COA! We recently sat down with Denise to find out more about her experiences at our practice.

Dear Patients,

Since the day Dr. Orlando opened our office in 1983, our mission has been to preserve, protect, and restore vision in a caring atmosphere that always puts our patients and staff first. With that in mind, we must make some significant but short-term changes to allow us to continue this important calling. All elective surgery in the United States is being put on hold so we can protect patients, staff, surgeons, and the greater community—while also making sure vital equipment and medical supplies are available for those on the front lines of this crisis.

Having access to modern medicine is something that many of us take for granted. However, for millions of people around the world, living with treatable vision loss is often the reality. 

At Columbus Ophthalmology Associates (COA), our doctors are passionate about making a difference—donating their time and specialized skills to help those most in need. Dr. Robert Derick, the director of glaucoma at COA, is especially passionate about giving back in this way.
