Early detection is Crucial. Now there is an opportunity to detect signs of vision threatening diseases earlier with this new breakthrough technology. This advanced technology can help detect vision threatening diseases in their early stages when they are most treatable. Diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, and others often have no outward signs or symptoms in early stages. This is why comprehensive eye examinations that include the iWellnessExamâ„¢ SD- OCT retinal scan are very important to protect your vision.

Dr. Diane Short and Dr. Zachary Short

How We Started

Upon graduating from Indiana University School of Optometry in 1990, Dr. Diane Short was employed with NuVision. Two years later, she began her own Bloomington, Indiana-based practice, Insights Optical, Inc. In 2001, after the practice outgrew its space in the College Mall, the office was moved to its present location on Clarizz Blvd. Dr. Diane's son, Zachary, began working in the practice at age 16; this lead to his decision to also pursue a career in optometry. Dr. Zachary Short earned his degree in 2006, and became a partner in the business. In 2008, Insights Optical opened an office in Mitchell, Indiana. Insights Optical takes pride in the fact that it is a family owned business that will always put the patient first.
