Gary Bachman, O.D., M.S.
Associate Professor Emeritus

Dr. Gary Bachman's research falls into three areas. First, he studies progressive addition spectacle lenses and their applications and acceptance by select groups of presbyopic subjects. To date these have included presbyopic computer users, presbyopic contact lens wearers, high index progressive wearers, and presbyopic law enforcement officers. Second, he is active in the visual assessment area as the vision consultant to the Missouri Highway Patrol. This involves researching visual requirements for the patrol in order to screen and advise on acceptance and retention of troopers. Finally, he has developed a program of research on the visual effects of laser eye protective devices worn by military aircrew. This research will determine the effects of these absorptive and holographic devices on color vision and color adaptation.
