Dr. Preety Bagri-Pavone, OD

“When I was about 15 years old, I started job-shadowing various professions in the medical field. I remember shadowing my own optometrist in Plymouth and thinking ; “I feel like I could do this and be happy!” Not only did I love the aspect of helping people improve their sight but I also enjoyed the science behind our visual system. I decided that day I would become an optometrist and I have continued to enjoy my career choice ever since!”

Dr. James R. Bohdan, OD

“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 40 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.”

Dr. Naureen Haroon, OD, MPH, FAAO

“I decided to pursue optometry because I was always fascinated at the amount of knowledge we gain just by looking into someone’s eyes. Millions of people across the globe suffer from blindness or a visual impairment, most of which is preventable or treatable. I have always had a passion for public health and helping those in need. As an optometrist, my goal is always to address my patients’ concerns but also to educate them about their eye health and discuss prevention of eye and systemic disease.”

Dr. Christopher Pavone, OD

“I always knew I wanted to end up in the medical field.  After looking into several different professions, it was optometry that sparked my interest the most.  Whether it is helping a young child see the world clearly for the first time, alleviating eye strain/fatigue for someone spending several hours a day on the computer, or diagnosing medical conditions through ocular examination, I get to do what I love every day.”

Over 4 Decades of Eye Care Experience

“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.”

Professional Committment

“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.”
