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.

  • Euro, stocks slide as Greek 'No' vote heightens euro exit fears
    U.S. equity futures dropped around 1.4 percent (ESc1) while Japan's Nikkei (.N225) shares fell 1.4 percent and MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped 0.5 percent. Adding to the anxiety among investors, China's stock market face a make-or-break week after a 30 percent plunge in the last three weeks forced officials to roll out an unprecedented series of steps at the weekend to prevent a full-blown market crash. While early price actions have been choppy, dealers emphasized that markets were orderly with no signs of financial strain and expectations were high that the European Central Bank would step in early with a pledge of extra liquidity.
  • China rolls out emergency measures to prevent stock market crash
    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's stock markets face a make-or-break week after officials rolled out an unprecedented series of steps at the weekend to prevent a full-blown stock market crash that would threaten the world's second-largest economy. In an extraordinary weekend of policy moves, brokerages and fund managers vowed to buy massive amounts of stocks, helped by China's state-backed margin finance company which in turn would be aided by a direct line of liquidity from the central bank. China has also orchestrated a halt to new share issues, with dozens of firms scrapping their IPO plans in separate but similarly worded statements over the weekend, in a tactic authorities have used before to support markets.
  • Euro markets set for major jolt after Greek 'No', look to ECB for calm
    European stock and bond markets are set to take a sharp hit on Monday after Greece voted 'No' to harsh bailout conditions, and bankers said the European Central Bank's response was now key to the extent of contagion. Many economists, including those at U.S. banking giant JPMorgan, reckon the outcome of Sunday's referendum will probably hasten Greece's exit from the euro. "Although the situation is fluid, at this point Greek exit from the euro appears more likely than not," JPMorgan's Malcolm Barr told clients on Sunday evening, adding 'Grexit' was now the bank's "base case".
