Santa Fe’s Ultimate Eyecare Destination Same Great Doctor, Same Great Service, New Location. By Trina Annand
Sight is one of the most important senses; you rely on it for most everything you do. It provides you with a unique and personal view of the world. Vision loss can affect every facet of a person’s life, which is why it is so important to have regular eye examinations. To see and look your best, you need an optometrist that has an eye for detail.
After serving the community for nearly 30 years, Dr. Mark Rasmussen has expanded his optometry practice, nearly tripling its size in a new light-filled location. The newly renamed Ultimate Eyecare Santa Fe still offers the same expert service loyal customers have come to expect, but now in a now spalike atmosphere. The unique and modern atmosphere puts patients of all ages at ease. “We work together to create and provide the ultimate eyecare experience for everyone that walks through our doors,” says manager Mona Hoover. “We believe in service and doing what it takes to make our patients happy.”
Specializing in eyecare rather than simply lens prescriptions, Ultimate Eyecare ensures not just great vision, but healthy eyes as well. Good vision and eye health are not the same thing, so it is important to work with a professional who knows the difference. “Eyecare is important because vision is important. Taking care of your eyes is the difference between sight and blindness. The ocular health component of the eye exam is just as important as the visual part, perhaps more so,” says Dr. Rasmussen.
As a specialist in disease management, the doctor helps patients with degenerative conditions such as glaucoma and diabetes to maintain their sight. “Your eyes are a part of your body, and some of the same healthy habits that protect general health can promote healthy eyesight. The key to eye health is catching problems early. Nowhere is this more important than with children who often can’t tell there is a problem,” says Dr. Rasmussen, “There is nothing more rewarding than helping a child see clearly for the first time or helping someone with an acute medical condition feel better.”
At Ultimate Eyecare, seeing better and feeling better are just the beginning. Carrying the latest trends and styles to suit any personality, the clinic also helps patients look their best with brands including Ray-Ban, Vera Bradley, Coach and Joseph Abbound. To offer the very best service, Ultimate Eyecare gets to know each patients’ lifestyle and needs in order to develop an approach that works best for them. Carrying anything from contacts and sunglasses to protective and specialty eyewear for sports, the clinic’s approach to sight is as unique as each of its patient. “The doctor and staff of Ultimate Eyecare are very thankful for the support the community has given us over the years and we look forward to working with them in the future,” says Hoover.
