Our Jacksonville office is headed by Dr. Gerry Balski. Dr. Balski graduated from the Ohio State University with a B.S. in Biology. At Nova Southeastern University, he continued his education and earned his Doctorate of Optometry (O.D.). Dr. Balski’s graduate studies consisted of internships and externships in specialty contact lens fitting, pediatrics, primary eye care as well as working with glaucoma, cataract, and retina specialists. Dr. Balski has worn some type of visual correction most of his life due to being near sighted. Being exposed to optometry at an early age, he became interested in a profession where one person can help another see. Dr. Balski wears glasses as well as contact lenses.
