Our Eye Doctors

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

R. Scott Wooley, O.D.

Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry

In practice since 1988

“I remember getting my first pair of eyeglasses at the age of 7 and being amazed at how clearly I could see. That was the moment I knew that I wanted to be an optometrist. Also, my optometrist was my father, and I was exposed to and very aware of the fulfillment he got from his job. He loved his career, and that was because he had the honor and privilege of helping people.

“More than 20 years after first becoming an optometrist, I understand better than ever how my father felt and why he loved his job. The best part of being an eye doctor is getting to talk and interact with people. My patients are my friends, really, and it’s rewarding to know that I’m helping them maintain good vision and healthy eyes. I truly care about them — and for them — in the same way I care about and for my own family. This is why my primary objective is to always give you my very best. I listen carefully. I explain things fully and in terms you can understand. I don’t rush and take the time to do things right. I strive to give you 110%, because I feel strongly that you deserve the best care possible.”

Paul B. Stauder, O.D.

Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry

In practice since 1998

“I was always very nearsighted… and always amazed at the improvement in my vision when I would get new glasses. Also, my father was an optometrist, and I started working for him when I was just 15. I enjoyed watching him help people, and I realized that I wanted to help others in the same way.

“Today, after more than a decade as an optometrist, I enjoy the same things about eyecare as I did when I was a teen. I know I’m making a difference in people’s lives, and it’s a great feeling to be able to diagnose a problem, treat it and help someone prevent vision loss. I also enjoy the simple act of interacting with people. I feel not only like an eye doctor but a friend who is looking out for their best interests and striving to help them have a better quality of life. I care about them, and I want what’s best for them. And I know that this starts with understanding that each person is unique and addressing their concerns, problems and objectives on an individual basis.”
