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 always 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, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Our optometrist takes 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.
Meet Our Doctors:
Dr. Stephanie Hanson is a native of Warren, Rhode Island. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology with a minor in Biochemistry at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY. Dr. Hanson received her Doctor of Optometry from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) in Worcester, MA. While at MCPHS, Dr. Hanson was a member of Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society and Volunteer Optometric Services for Humanity (VOSH). Prior to joining Bling Eyewear, her work includes externships at the VA Hospitals in Orlando, FL and Providence, RI, and at the Naval Hospital in Quantico, VA. Her clinical work background incorporates an array of practices in diagnosing and/or managing various ocular diseases, contact lens evaluations and fittings, as well as dry eye therapy.
Outside of work, Dr. Hanson takes pride in cheering on her gold-medalist sister Diana in the Special Olympics-- in addition to taking frequent trips to Disney World with her by her side. Family plays a large role in Dr. Hanson’s life for she enjoys spending valuable and quality time with them (and her dogs!). A passion of hers is traveling the world. During your next visit, ask Dr. Hanson where her favorite place to travel has been and let her know of yours as well, she loves to hear it!
Bling Eyewear is a family run business and Dr. Hanson is delighted to be working alongside her parents and family. She wouldn’t be where she is today without her mother, Optician Cesarina Hanson, leading the way (literally and figuratively!). She learned from the best.
