East meets West and health and beauty go hand-in-hand, and that is the recipe for total eye wellness, according to Dr. Elise Brisco. For over 30 years, she has been a leader and an innovator in the field of optometry, and over that time, her philosophy has evolved considerably.
Today, Dr. Brisco believes that you can improve your vision, beauty and eye health by combining the best of western medicine and healthy living. Many eye conditions can be improved with more than prescription eyeglasses or pharmaceuticals. Now, she incorporates many natural and homeopathic options into her treatment for pateints. Her goal is more than just helping her patients see better – Her goal is to help you improve your overall quality of life. You might even say that it’s her vision.
Listen to what she said in a 2019 interview:
“I love helping patients perform their best by improving their vision through traditional as well as innovative ways. I look at my patients’ needs and lifestyles and make recommendations to improve their quality of life by helping them see their best and look their best…I love inspiring patients to live life to its fullest…”
“Healthy is beautiful, and without that underlying health, you really can’t have true beauty.”

Two Complementary Approaches to Total Eye Health
Although she holds multiple titles, Dr. Brisco has two specific credentials that enable her to provide the comprehensive vision health services that match her philosophy.
First and foremost, Dr. Brisco is an Integrative Optometrist. This means that she offers all of the typical services that you might need to improve your vision and keep your eyes healthy — from glasses or contact lenses to LASIK surgery to eye conditions such as conjunctivitis or dry eye.
In other words, she is your one-stop vision care provider.
This is important, because it means that whatever your issue is, Dr. Brisco is with you every step of the way. She gets to know YOU — your lifestyle, your history, your habits — so she can make the best informed decisions about how to treat you as an individual.
But Dr. Brisco is also a Clinical Homeopath. This means she knows how to use natural therapies — including the body’s own systems — to promote safe and effective healing. Applied therapies might include exercise, diet, stress reduction, or even acupuncture.
Again, Dr. Brisco does this by reviewing your complete health history and by treating you as an individual, not just a list of symptoms. Modern, cutting-edge medicine and time-honored homeopathic remedies combine to provide you the best of both worlds.
