OPTOMETRIST RETURNS

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.

    Ford Motor Co's third-quarter earnings fell 34 percent but beat Wall Street expectations on a strong showing in North America even as revenue fell due to the cost of introducing the F-150 pickup truck. Ford's launch of its aluminum-bodied F-150 is on track, the company said on Friday. Excluding one-time items, Ford reported earnings of 24 cents per share, which beat expectations of 19 cents from analysts polled by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Three cents of that beat stemmed from operating results in North America and the rest from lower tax rates.
