July 8, 2020 – COVID-19 Update
We are excited to announce that we will be open for all services by appointment only! We continue to follow local, state and CDC recommendations to ensure the safety of our patients, staff, and doctors. Prior to your appointment one of our staff members will call to confirm your appointment and update your medical and ocular history. Why do we do this? The care process has been streamlined to minimize the time you’ll spend in our office with our staff and limit any possible COVID-19 exposure
for those who may remain symptomless.
1. If you are ill in any way that may be COVID-19 or any other contagious disorder, please postpone your appointment.
2. All guests will be asked to wear a mask or facial covering while in the office. We also ask that you come alone to your appointment or limit it to one other family member if possible.
3. We will ask you to use hand sanitizer upon entering the clinic and will check your temperature.
4. All staff will be wearing masks and have their own temperatures checked daily.
5. All surfaces, equipment, and eyeglasses frames will be disinfected after every patient encounter as well as throughout the day.
6. BVC doctor schedules have been adjusted to spread out patient arrival times and thus further minimize the number of people in the office at one time. Our staff numbers have also been decreased in order to allow for social distancing.
7. Our staff will be monitoring the number of patients in our office. If at any time the number reaches a point where social distancing is not attainable, we may ask you to wait in your car until it is safe to enter the clinic.
8. If you are in a high-risk group for COVID-19 complications, we may ask you to postpone your appointment until it is safer for you. If you have a visually urgent need, eye pain, or flashed and new floaters, please let our staff know so we can accommodate you as soon as possible.
As always, your safety and the safety of our staff is top priority for us during this COVID-19 health
crisis. We strive to maintain the safest environment possible and look forward to serving you. We
appreciate your patience, understanding, and support!
Welcome to Brookfield Vision Center! We have been serving the community since 2005 and look forward to many, many more years!
Dr. Jason Varner was born and raised in Illinois. He is a diehard Bears and Cubs fan, but don’t hold that against him! After graduating Cum Laude from the Illinois College of Optometry in 2000, Dr. Varner followed his love back to Wisconsin! Always striving to improve and grow, Dr. Varner and Dr. Tran followed their dream and opened Brookfield Vision Center in 2005.
Dr. Tran and Dr. Varner were married in 2003 and have two rambunctious boys. Dr. Varner is quite the busy guy, but will always find time to sit down and play a game of chess with the kids.
Dr. Saly Tran was going through an old box of memorabilia when she found her PSAT scores from 1990. The fine print at the bottom said, “Future profession: Optometrist”. Having forgotten this, she went on to college as a Chancellor’s Scholar at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and majored in Molecular Biology. After working in a research lab for two years as an undergraduate, she realized that research was not “her thing”. Next was a short visit to her home town Optometrist in Delavan, Wisconsin, and the rest is history. Dr. Tran has since developed an extreme case of wanderlust and you may find her practicing her Italian and French between patients!
The Varners recently adopted Waffles, a six year old Bassett Hound, to add to the never ending chaos at home.
Jodie has been at BVC since her youngest son started kindergarten back in 2006. She wanted a job that would keep her challenged and busy. Boy, did that happen!
Jodie has three brilliant sons, Zachary, Elijah, and Hunter; and a wonderful husband, Larry. Rounding off this vision of suburban bliss, is Gigi, a boxer-hound mix and Kona, her new baby kitten that thinks she’s a dog. When not at work, Jodie loves hiking with Gigi, going to the gym, antiquing, going to movies, and music. She is also trying to assemble the perfect trivia team. Jodie grew up in northern Indiana if you were wondering where her unique Midwestern accent came from.
Lilly joined us in March, 2013 with over 4 years of experience at the time. She loves the fashion aspect of eye care and is in charge of filling our optical with many of the frames you see. She meets every 2-3 months with our frame reps to make sure that our lines are up to date and your selection is ever changing.
Lilly was born in Russia and immigrated to the U.S. when she was just 8 years old. Do you speak Russian? Come chat with Lilly! Outside of work, Lilly loves visiting new restaurants, movies, and spending time with her family and friends. Her canine is a teddy bear, 3.5 years old.
Erin grew up in Rhode Island and moved to Wisconsin soon after getting married in July of 2014. Her favorite pastime is reading. Her favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird. Erin recently adopted two pets, a cocker spaniel named Lady, and a bichpoo named Oliver.
Gracie has been an intern at Brookfield Vision since February 2015. She is currently devoting much of her time to her studies at UW-Milwaukee in Healthcare Administration. She has been a wonderful asset to BVC and continues to impress us with her knowledge base and drive to learn. Gracie is trained in all aspects of Optometric care, but you will find her most often in direct patient care.
Sveta joined BVC in May of 2015. She has a knack for patient care and hopes for a successful career as an optometrist! She has excelled in performing ancillary testing for macular degeneration and glaucoma. She is also in charge of making sure we have an abundance of contact lens diagnostic lenses in stock, in all powers for our patients. In her spare time she enjoys getting together with friends and going to art museums. Sveta saves what little energy she has left at the end of the day for her little Bichon Frise, Armani, who she ”treats like a baby”. She is originally from Bulgaria, but has lived in Wisconsin since 2000.
Amanda began her career at Brookfield Vision Center as an Optometric Assistant in December 2015. She is from Mukwonago, Wisconsin. Amanda’s smile will light up your day! Really! As an Optometric Assistant “in training”, you will see Amanda in every department we have, from front desk, to optical, to patient care. We see great things in Amanda K! In her spare time she enjoys hiking, traveling and spending time outdoors with her Labrador Retriever, Luke.
Amanda S. was born and raised in Lake Country. She has a background in Medical Assisting and spent the last few years working for a large Orthodontics group. Outside of the office she spends time with her two adorable little boys. She enjoys staying active and being outdoors. You’ll often find her in the local cozy coffee shop reading and spending time with friends and family.
The doctors and staff at Brookfield Vision Center are committed to ensuring future optometrists are skilled in patient care and are compassionate about the profession. Each year, we invest our time and share our knowledge with local undergraduates that wish to enter optometry school. We are pleased to share with you our Intern Wall of Fame!
Marisha –If anyone had a plan, it was Marisha. Marisha joined Brookfield Vision as an intern in 2007. Between her undergraduate classes, studying for the optometry entrance exam, and family life, Marisha learned the ins and outs of optometric practice. She graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry in 2012 and currently practices in Atlanta, GA.
Liesl – We know Liesl all too well! Our relationship began when Liesl was just 16 years old and a patient! She worked weekends and summers in our office during high school and then during the summer while attending UW-Eau Claire. She is finishing her final year at the University of Missouri-St. Louis Optometry School and will graduate in May 2016. We are excited for her and can’t wait to see the next chapter of her life!
Jordyn – Jordyn joined Brookfield Vision in 2013. She is a native of Sheboygan, WI. She graduated from Marquette University in 2014 and went on to Ohio State University Optometry School later that year. Jordyn was eager to learn all aspects of optometric patient care. We hope that she gained some valuable experience with us!
Clear vision begins with healthy eyes! Here at Brookfield Vision, we do more than just determine your prescription for glasses and contacts. Your comprehensive eye examination will also include a screening for accommodative and binocular disorders, and a thorough check for common eye diseases, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataract, and dry eye. Early detection of these eye diseases is imperative for sustaining clear vision and a positive quality of life.
Dilation of the pupils is always included in a comprehensive eye examination and allows us to provide the best assessment of eye health. It is recommended for all new patients and on a scheduled basis thereafter.
Our doctors do more than prescribe glasses and contact lenses. Dr. Varner and Tran are therapeutically licensed to treat and manage chronic eye disease such as glaucoma, dry eye/lid disease, and many more. If your symptoms are of sudden onset, such as flashes and floaters, loss of vision, and/or painful red eye, we recommend that you are seen soon to rule out potential vision threatening conditions. Most urgent conditions can be seen within 24-48 hours. Emergencies will be seen same day. Please call our office at 262-754-4880 and our staff will assist you promptly.
Brookfield Vision Center strives to bring you state of the art technology to improve your eye exam experience and assist our doctors in early detection and diagnosing of eye disease.
Our patients love the “no puff, no drops” method of determining their eye pressure! The iCare tonometer is quick, painless, and is barely noticed by our patients.
Our 21.1 megapixel Canon digital retinal camera allows us to quickly and painlessly take a photograph of the important anatomical structures in the back of your eyes. This digital photograph becomes a permanent part of your health record. These photographs assist our doctors in documenting any normal/abnormal findings, progression of eye disease, or better yet, rule out any potential vision threats!
Brookfield Vision Center is pleased to offer iVue: Optical Coherence Tomography to all our patients. This technology, at 26,000 scans per second, gives our doctors 5 micron resolution of the retina and optic nerve. This results in the earliest possible detection of ocular disease, and the ability to see things beyond the limitations of previous technology. Sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and others often have no outward signs or symptoms, which is why eye exams, including a thorough retinal evaluation, are important to protect vision.
The Zeiss Humphrey Field Analyzer has brought certainty to glaucoma diagnosis and has been considered the gold standard for visual field testing. Not only do our doctors utilize this technology to detect and manage glaucoma, it is also used in the detection of strokes, brain tumors, aneurysms and other vision and life threatening conditions.
