Dr. Diana Christensen, Owner and Optometrist of Allure Eyecare, wanted to be an optometrist since she was 13 years old when she was fit with contacts for the first time. Dr. Christensen had a huge boost in her self-esteem and she thought it would be amazing to do this for other people.
Fast forward to 2008, she graduated from IU School of Optometry with an optometry degree and was working on her masters in dry eye. The next year, she had identical twin boys and never finished her masters but her training prepped her for a passion to help those with dry eye complaints.
As of April 4th, 2022, Dr. Christensen opened her own practice in Bloomington called Allure Eyecare where they specialize in dry eye and aesthetics. Why aesthetics? Well, the eyes are attached to the face and skin which has a lot to do with the oil producing glands that are around the eyes and help supply your eyes with good quality tears. Unfortunately, those glands are the root of a lot of dry eye issues which are caused from not blinking well throughout the day, staring at electronics, hormones, medication side effects, etc. These glands are being damaged and are disappearing which is why she is dedicating her focus to educating patients on ways to keep their glands working. Allure Eyecare is implementing procedures and skin care to help keep eyes functioning optimally since the front of the eye is the like the windshield and it needs to stay moist in order to work well and have clear vision.
You can find her business on Facebook - @allureeyecare - and Instagram @allure_eyecare. For more information on Allure Eyecare and their services, go to their website at allure-eyes.com.
