ProEye About Our Practice

ProEye has been a Vernon institution since the mid 1960's when Drs. Pivnick and Kreminski started it all.They were well known for emphasizing professional care in a personal, family setting...

Mission Statement

One of our most precious gifts is our eyes  because they provide us the window into the world.  Clear vision begins with healthy eyes and foresight.  We must see what was before us, learn from our mistakes and failures today, and plan carefully for the future. 

Our goals are to provide the best patient care possible with clinical procedures, insurance claims, and optical services.  We will do this by treating our patients with compassion and respect.  We will make them feel like they are a part of the our family.  

We will provide only the best in technology; educate ourselves to be better staffers and clinicians; be timely and precious in every aspect of what we do; and provide prompt, accurate, and fashionable eye correction.

To the end, we hope to make our patients happy and better able to succeed in life, give back to our community, and make ProEye thrive well in the future! 

A Short History of Pro Eye

ProEye began as “Professional Eyecare Associates, P.C.” in Vernon in the 1960’s by Drs. Barry Pivnick and Robert Kreminski. They emphasized quality medical optometric care in a family setting. They had a small office in the tall office building across from Kmart on Route 30. Around 1987, they grew out of their space and moved to a new location. They teamed up with 3 dentists to build their own professional office park at 219 Talcottville Road.

In March of 2004, Dr. Keith E. Watson bought the practice and the tradition of family eye care was continued. Additional instruments were brought in to further the medical emphasis. Drs Pivnick and Kreminski retired in ’04 and ’05 respectively.

In 2009, ProEye celebrated its 45th year in operation. We are looking forward to the 50th in 2014!

Also in 2009, ProEye opened its second location in Coventry.

In 2012, Dr. Neeti Dhillon joined ProEye. She has extensive experience with specialty medical eye care and pediatrics.

In 2014, ProEye celebrated 50 years serving all of NE Connecticut.

Also in 2014, ProEye moved it's location into a brand new office building at 1135 Hartford Turnpike in Vernon. The additional space, new optical, and easier access was welcomed.

In 2015, the satellite office in Coventry was closed. It didn't make sense to have two offices that were so close together.
