Dr. Steve Sandman wants to change the world starting in his corner of Beatrice, NE. His own world was changed in 2nd grade when he received his first pair of glasses. Because of the constant changes in his vision, he needed to visit his optometrist every 6-12 months. He knew what an impact having clear vision had on his own life, and he wanted other people to be able to enjoy their most important sense.
One of the things that Dr. Sandman enjoys most about what he does every day is helping a wide variety of patients. He finds it very rewarding to help a child with their first pair of glasses or treating patients with macular degeneration or cataracts. He likes meeting patients of every age and stage in life and doing what he can to help them see their very best.
Dr. Sandman enjoys being active in the Beatrice Community and beyond. He volunteers for the Beatrice Public Library Foundation, the Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center’s Board of Directors. He also has traveled to Haiti with Shared Vision International to help the people there receive optometric exams and also volunteers with Vision USA, a program that provides basic eye exams and vision services free of charge to low income individuals and families who are uninsured.
Dr. Sandman wants people to know how important it is to consider the health of their eyes as an extension of their overall health. As we are living longer and longer, we want to make sure to take care of our eyes so that we can enjoy great vision well into our golden years.
