Christine Gallagher has returned home. Home is Tamaqua, and Christine is beginning a new career as an optometrist.

The most exciting part of that is knowing that she can help people in the same way she was helped as a child. Christine is joining Houser Newman Associates, long known for their excellence in eye care. She knows about their care because she was a patient who benefitted from their expertise and dedication to quality service.

Now Christine is eager to help others and is really interested in knowing what her patients' concerns are. "I don't want to just perform a routine exam and prescribe contacts or glasses, I want to get to know my patients as individuals so I can address any concerns they have. I want to become the family doctor for their eyes.", she said.

Christine has had extensive experience with fitting contact lenses, helping patients choose flattering frames and management of eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetes, and macular degeneration. She can also evaluate patients who wish to have Lasik surgery.

Houser Newman Associates has welcomed Dr.Gallagher to all of their offices and invites patients to call for appointments with her. Christine is glad to be home and eager to serve the people of Tamaqua and surrounding areas. Call for an appointment at 570-386-5926.

Houser Newman Associates has offices in Mahoning Valley, Tamaqua, Lehighton, Palmerton, and Nesquehoning.
