Dr. Meske’s passion for optometry started in elementary school. She struggled in class, consistently lost her place while reading, using her finger to follow along, and mixing up her letters such as B’s and D’s. Her amazing mom immediately scheduled her with an optometrist who started her in a vision therapy program. After this experience, she experienced firsthand the rewards of proper diagnosis and therapies and what an impact can be made on the lives of young people. She became a better reader and was able to keep up with school tasks with less effort. She went to get her doctorate and now, she is able to pay it forward, by helping kids who struggle to keep up in school, excel at sports, keep attention in the classroom with ADHD diagnosis, etc. She is able to look into the whole mind and body and help kids who otherwise get lost in the system without the key components they need for success.
Dr. Meske is obviously great with our pediatric patients but is also skilled in the treatment of adults and kids of all ages, whether it be giving the best vision, diabetic exams, dry eye, the treatment of glaucoma…she does it all with energy, patient education, and a smile.
In her free time, she enjoys the outdoors- hiking, camping, going to the lake, and playing various sports. Heads up, athletes: she is very active and has played sports her whole life. Our athletic Dr. Meske is very competitive!
