Valley Health Expands Optical Services at Wayne Health Center


 

Wayne, W.Va. Valley Health is expanding the comprehensive optical care it offers at its Wayne health center by welcoming optometrist Dr. Elizabeth DiStefano, OD, and optician Ted Lambert to its team of experienced providers.

With the addition of these new, full-time optical team members, a wide range of optical services are now accessible four days a week at Valley Health – Wayne. Services include routine eye exams, detection and diagnosis of eye diseases, prescription treatment for eye diseases, OCT exams, removal of foreign bodies from the eye, children’s optical care, contact lens prescriptions and fittings, and glasses prescriptions and fittings. In addition, Valley Health – Wayne also operates a retail optical store that offers a wide selection of eyeglass frames, including designer options such as Kate Spade, Oakley, Ray-Ban and more.

“Since expanding our Wayne facility in January 2017 to better meet the demands of the community, we have continued to look for ways to improve accessibility to the full breadth of primary care services our network offers,” stated Valley Health Executive Director and CEO, Steve Shattls.  “While we have been offering optical services on a limited basis in Wayne for a period of time, the addition of Dr. DiStefano and Ted Lambert gives us the opportunity to take the optical care we provide in Wayne County to a new level.”
