Meet Rochelle Optometrist, Dr. Keli Gardner
Family Vision Center was established in 1965 by Dr. George Laubach. He built his office by treating every patient as if they were family. Dr. Keli Gardner purchased the practice in 1995 and continues with his philosophy today.
Dr. Gardner grew up in Northwestern Pennsylvania where her parents instilled in her the need to care and have compassion for others. She decided at the age of 9 that she wanted to become an optometrist. Her special concern for the welfare of people led her to receive her Bachelor of Science degree from Gannon University, and in 1995 she received her Doctorate of Optometry degree from the Illinois College of Optometry. She did her clinical training at the Illinois Eye Institute and Great Lakes Naval Base.
Dr. Gardner’s practice model is to provide “big city” care in a small town by providing the most thorough and accurate exams. She has dedicated herself to purchasing the most up-to-date instruments and continuing her education to learn how to best care for her family of patients.
Eye exams are about more than just vision. Dr. Gardner prides herself on getting to know each patient and their medical history so she can address any and all eye health concerns with a customized approach.
Unparalleled to her dedication to her patients is her dedication to God and her family. Ruth and Joshua are her two amazing blessings. Her many mission trips connected her with her children, and she welcomed the two to her family at age 2 in 2003.
Dr. Gardner’s concern for the well-being of everyone she comes into contact with lets you know that she is the right choice for your eye care needs. To contact Dr. Gardner, e-mail her here.
