Vista Optical, inside Fred Meyer, welcomes a familiar face to the vision care center.

Dr. Joyce Staples has returned after a two-year absence working for an ophthalmologist in Coos Bay.

She continues to live and work in Coos Bay, making her available Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in Brookings.

Prior to her move, she worked at the Brookings Vista Optical for two years.

Altogether Dr. Staples has been practicing for six years. She began her practice after graduating from Pacific University in Forest Grove, she said.

It was because she had to get glasses when she was 10 years old that prompted her interest in optometry, Staples said.

I always thought it was fascinating, Staples said.

Vista Optical in Brookings offers bifocal contacts, different colored lenses, dilation exams as needed and glaucoma treatments, the doctor said.

It also offers special purpose prescriptions for hobbiests, she said. Minor repairs are offered at no cost, such as realignments and tightening screws on glasses.

The center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

For an appointment, call (541) 469-5556.

The liquidity rules, which call for big banks to hold enough liquid assets to meet their cash needs for 30 days, are a key pillar of the international agreement known as Basel III. They aim to ensure banks have easy-to-sell assets on hand so they could meet customer withdrawals or post collateral in a crunch.
