Open House for Dr. Michael O'Neal, Dunes Eye Consultants
Dunes Eye Consultants, the area's leading provider of well-vision and vision-medical care, will host a come-and-go open house introducing Michael O'Neal, OD, to patients and friends.
The open house on Thursday, November 16, from 9:00 a.m. to noon at Dunes Eye Consultants (305 Dakota Dunes Blvd) will include snacks, refreshments, information and door prizes, and is free and open to the public.
Dr. O'Neal earned his doctorate of optometry from the University of Houston College of Optometry. A native of Whiting, Iowa, he graduated from Sergeant Bluff/Luton High School and earned his bachelor of science degree from Morningside College.
"We are thrilled to have Dr. Mike join our team," says Dr. Steven J. Ferguson, owner of Dunes Eye Consultants. "He brings a strong academic and clinical background to the clinic and is excited to see new patients and develop his practice."
In addition to well-vision exams, Dr. O'Neal will lead Dunes Eye Consultants Myopia Control Center, which will provide treatment to help slow or stop the progression of nearsightedness in children.
"People with myopia cannot function without contacts or glasses," says O'Neal, "and it can create an increased risk for cataracts and retinal diseases, including glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal detachments. Early diagnosis and treatment of nearsightedness in young patients can significantly reduce the potential for problems later in life."
In addition to offering cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment services, Dunes Eye Consultants is committed to providing excellent care and service to every patient every time. With Dunes LASIK Center and River's Edge Optical, they are the area's leading provider of LASIK surgery, dry eye disease treatment, diabetic eye care, premium, high-fashion frames and performance eyewear.
