Dr. Nordhues has always had a love for science and a fascination with the eyes, which is what inspired him to become an optometrist. He’s excited to provide comprehensive primary eye care to all ages, contact lens fittings, and advanced care of ocular diseases. He’s especially passionate about working with children and addressing common ocular issues involving near work. Dr. Nordhues is on a personal mission to educate parents on the importance of scheduling eye exams for their children early on.
Education and Life
Born and raised in Grand Island, Dr. Nordhues is thrilled to move back near his home and family. He received his Doctor of Optometry degree from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN in 2017. During his externships, Dr. Nordhues received specialized training in ocular disease, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and dry-eye treatment.
During his medical training in Tennessee, Dr. Nordhues participated in weekly vision screenings at elementary and middle schools utilizing chair skills and retinoscopy, as well as volunteered for a Remote Area Medical (RAM) trip where doctors and students provided free vision and ocular health examinations to under-served and uninsured patients. He also was a member of Student Volunteers in Optometric Service to Humanity (SVOSH) providing exams and services to patients in Merida, Mexico.
Dr. Nordhues is married and has two young children. He enjoys playing softball, racquetball, tennis, and travel.
I really enjoy the one-to-one interactions at EyeCare Specialties – getting to know people a little more by hearing their stories, what they do for work, and what’s happening in their lives.
