Insight EyeCare, a new Optometry practice, has opened for business in Yarmouth. Insight EyeCare is owned and operated by Dr. Amy Abbott O.D. and Dr. Michelle Higgins O.D. Dr. Amy Abbott has chosen to call Maine home. Dr. Abbott was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Indiana University, Bloomington and a Doctorate in Optometry at Illinois Col- lege of Optometry. Dr. Abbott came to Maine as a result of meeting her hus- band who is from the Lisbon area. Maine is also home by choice for Dr. Michelle Higgins. Originally from Belle- vue, Ohio, Dr. Higgins received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Miami Uni- versity, located in Oxford, Ohio and a Doc- torate in Optometry at Illinois College of Optometry. Dr. Higgins first came to Maine to visit her roommate from optometry school, Dr. Abbott. She immediately fell in love with the area and moved to Maine less than a year after her first visit. Dr. Abbott previously practiced in South Port- land and Dr. Higgins practiced in Biddeford before they decided to take the leap and open their own practice. They first opened an office in Topsham in September 2008. Having two locations assures that you do not have to travel far to receive quali- ty eyecare. Insight EyeCare offers comprehensive eye exams, contact lens fitting, diagnosis and treat- ment of eye disease plus the co-management of patients undergoing surgical procedures such as corrective laser surgery or cataract removal. In addition to these traditional eye care services, Drs. Higgins and Abbott also offer pediatric and infant eye exams. They are participants in the InfantSEE program, which is a public health pro- gram that provides a free eye exam to newborns under the age of 12 months. The vision of Insight EyeCare is to provide highly personalized attention to every patient, rec- ognizing that each person has different needs. Drs. Higgins and Abbott invite new patients to experience this unique approach to eye care. Insight EyeCare prides itself on having the latest technology to help educate their patients. It is important to Drs. Higgins and Abbott that the individual understands their individual diagnoses so informed decisions can be made. The optical at Insight EyeCare carries a unique collection of eyewear including many frame lines that were previously unavailable in Maine. Some of the distinctive lines include Paul Frank, Todd Rogers, LaFont, Ooh la-la de Paris and Klik. There is also a great selection of Coach, Calvin Klein, Nike, Silhouette, and Kenneth Cole. The childrenís selection allows your child to express their individuality with a wide variety of colors and styles. There is also a selection of rec- reational sport eyewear, which offers excellent eye protection for all athletes.
