Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Dr. Patrick Padrnos hails from the Midwest (Yankton, SD). He attended the University of S.D. for his undergraduate studies. He attended optometry school in Oregon at Pacific University. In 1985 Dr. Pat landed in Flagstaff, AZ where he has had an optometry practice ever since. Dr. Pat enjoys his profession more every year. He gets to work with his daughter, Jamie - the apple of his eye and the source of his grey hair - (but that's another story-how much time do you have?). Now, Dr. P's other daughter Sarah has joined the practice and will be rounding out the team - he couldn't be happier.
Dr. Sarah Padrnos-Hulen O.D. is a Flagstaff native. She attended Arizona State University and received a Bachelor's degree in business management. After working for several years in marketing, Sarah decided to go back to school and follow in her father's footsteps. She was accepted into the Houston College of Optometry program and graduated in May of 2014. Sarah enjoys cupcakes, red velvet cake, caramel apples, german chocolate cake, watching TMZ, reading people magazine, and sleeping in till noon.
