Tallmadge, OH (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
In 1992, board certified ophthalmologist Todd L. Beyer, DO, and therapeutically licensed optometrist Jerry Sude, OD, united to create a unique medical alliance combining both ophthalmology and optometry in one extraordinary, state-of-the-art facility known as System Optics. Dr. Beyer and Dr. Sude were among the first vision care specialists in the state of Ohio to have both ophthalmology and optometry services all under one roof.
A one-stop shop for optimal eye health care, Dr. Beyer and Dr. Sude added the specialties of Dr. James L. Johnston, Jr., a board certified neuro-ophthalmologist, and Dr. Joseph J. Pirman, therapeutically licensed optometrist. With a vision team in place, the doors of System Optics opened on October 26, 1992.
After years of growth and the boom of laser vision correction, a 3,800-square-foot fully-accredited ambulatory care Surgery Center was constructed on the north side of the building in 1998. This allowed the ophthalmologists to offer the following procedures onsite:
- Advanced, Outpatient Cataract Surgery
- Advanced Dry Eye Treatments
- LASIK Surgery--Nearsighted, Farsighted and Astigmatism patients
- Laser Eye Surgery--Diabetic, Glaucoma, Macular Degenerative and Secondary Cataract patients
- Blepharoplasty (Eyelid tucks)
- Eyebrow and Forehead Lifts--Endoscopic or Subcutaneous Lifts, Contour ThreadLift
Dr. Beyer, who is also an oculoplastic surgeon, began to see an increase in demand for cosmetic eye surgeries. In 2000, he introduced a full-service Skin Care Center to enable patients to return to work more quickly after surgery thanks to camouflage makeup, other skin repairing agents and their own licensed aesthetician. Skin Care services include:
- Botox®, Juvederm® and Restylane®
- Glycolic Peels, Microdermabrasion, Acne Care
- Eyebrow Design, Eyebrow and Eyelash Tinting
- Pharmaceutical Skin Care Products, Youngblood® Mineral Makeup
- Laser Hair Removal
- Latisse® eye lash treatment
With the natural addition of the Skin Care Center, the name "System Optics" no longer told the story of all the services offered. In 2003, a name change to Novus Clinic was announced. Novus, which is Latin for Novellas, means new, fresh and extraordinary.
In 2005, Novus Clinic grew again adding one of few board certified retinal surgeons in the state, Dr. Donald C. Stephens. Novus Clinic also added a second location in Coventry at 3510 Manchester Road, welcoming therapeutically licensed optometrist, Dr. Trang Phan.
Nearly 17 years later, Novus Clinic is northeastern Ohio's premier vision and skin care center with convenient evening and weekend hours for its patients. Optical services include adult and pediatric eye exams and dry eye therapy. Along with those services, Novus Clinic offers high fashion eyewear and contact lenses and Ortho-K which is a non-surgical vision shaping system.
Novus Clinic operates two locations in Tallmadge and Coventry. Nearly 15 years later, Novus Clinic is Summit County's premier vision and skin care center with convenient evening and weekend hours for its patients.
