Dr. Lawrence Soellner is a 1990 graduate of Indiana University School of Optometry. His education began as a passion for vision research and neurophysiology at Purdue University. He continues that calling to better understand the human eye and vision system by attending many advanced courses in ocular pathology, especially glaucoma. He also participates in investigative clinical trials for new innovative contact lenses, most recently a new gas permeable, simultaneous viewing bifocal. He continues to expand his fitting experiences within the very specialized category of 'medically necessary contacts'. These unique cases have no other option for clear vision outside of very customized contact designs or materials.
Dr. Soellner is active in many community and service organizations and has held offices in most. He has also volunteered time for his profession by serving on Illinois Optometric Association's executive committee. He is also an active member of the American Optometric Association.
Most of Dr. Soellner's free time is spent enjoying family experiences with his wife and three children but if time permits you may find him tooling about the local lakes in his antique wooden Chris Craft.
