Dr. Duane Snyder, born and raised in Berwick, PA, graduated from the University of Scranton in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biology. Following his undergraduate degree he pursued his doctorate education at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University in Philadelphia, PA, where he received his Bachelor of Science in Vision Science in 1981 and his Doctor of Optometry in 1984. Clinical externships in his 4th year of his doctorate training provided a variety of experience in various practice settings. He trained at Kenner Army Hospital, Fort Lee, Virginia and Rosebud Indian Health Service Hospital, Rosebud, South Dakota. Years of experience ranging from an ophthalmology practice to commercial optometry led to practice at Davison Road Optical, Inc. in Lockport, NY, in 2003.
Dr. Elizabeth Hetrick, Lockport native, joined the Davison Road Optical team in 2013. Amazed at how clearly everyone else saw the world after putting on her first pair of glasses in the fifth grade, she resolved to help others experience clarity in their vision. She attended SUNY Geneseo where she earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Biology. To further persue her resolution with great energy and enthusiasm, she attended SUNY College of Optometry. While there, her externship training included rotations through clinics specializing in contact lenses, pediatrics, vision therapy, and ocular disease. Dr. Hetrick is excited to bring her friendly, high-quality eyecare to our practice.
