What Inspires You to Achieve Your Dreams?
Sometimes, it’s truly the simplest of things….
On a lovely night in 1997, Dr. Mary Boname and Ben Fazio were having dinner at a restaurant full of memorabilia and old family photos. It made them ache for a time in their young lives when everyone was treated warmly and respectfully. Who wouldn’t want to be treated this way now? They wanted to create a modern optometric practice, with the latest in optometric and optical technology & fashion, and combine it with old-fashioned and caring service. And that’s what they did.
For the past 19 years, Montgomery Eye Care, in Skillman, NJ, has provided exceptional eye care and eyewear in the community. It’s a place of comfort and fashion, a place of technology with “a peaceful, easy feeling,” and a place to come if you just want to be treated well. It’s that easy.
Dr. Mary E. Boname
Dr Mary Boname, licensed Optometric Physician and co-owner/founder of Montgomery Eye Care, is commonly referred to as “the patient whisperer” because of how she relates to everyone who comes in to see her. When you walk into Montgomery Eye Care, you immediately become her priority.
From start to finish your eye exam is with Dr. Mary E. Boname, a nationally recognized authority in eye care. You will not be handed off to a “technician” during any part of your exam. Dr. Boname will conduct every phase of your examination. This includes checking the internal and external health of your eyes for the presence of any disorders.
Preventive Optometric Care and wellness are the foundation of Dr. Boname’s treatment plan for each and every patient that she sees. Furthermore, she believes in leading by example, so patients will notice that she wears Blu-Tech lenses while examining them to filter out the blue radiation from her computer screen and indoor lighting. Cumulative exposure to blue radiation increases the risk of developing macular degeneration, the leading cause of vision loss in patients over 50 in North America.
Her ocular surface disease (OSD) and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) patients have had marked improvement with therapies such as Avenova, Restasis, Xiidra, Blink Lid Wipes, OcuSoft’s Retaine. Macuhealth, a nutritional supplement, to support the health and function of the part of the eyes responsible for our best visual acuity, is available at Montgomery Eye Care.
Dr. Boname also fits and evaluates contact lenses, like Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism, Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia, 1 Day Acuvue Moist, 1 Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism, 1 Day Acuvue Moist Multifocal, Focus Dailies Aqua Comfort, Focus Dailies Aqua Comfort Toric, Focus Dailies Aqua Comfort Multifocal, Biofinity Toric, Biofinity Multifocal, Proclear Dailies, etc.
