Dr. Russell Brear, an ophthalmologist at Commonwealth Eye Center, talked about the importance of good vision.
He urged obtaining routine eye exams especially after a certain age.
When Brear started ...

When Brear started his Commonwealth Eye Center practice in 1985, it took one and a half hours to perform the same procedure.
“It’s amazing,� said Brear about the changing technology that allows for faster surgical procedures.
The original surgical equipment wasn’t the greatest and certainly not technically advanced.
Brear was the first doctor to offer cataract surgery in Culpeper. Before then, anyone requiring that procedure had to go to Fredericksburg or Charlottesville.
Although in business for 30 years, Brear, 63, doesn’t have any plans to fold up his eye chart and retire any time soon. He loves providing total eye care to his many patients both in Culpeper and during his many missions to South and Central America helping the less fortunate.
On a recent mission to Guatemala, Brear recalled a blind woman, estimated to be between 80 and 90 years old, with “hard cataracts.� He said her eyelids were tight - mere slits - and her eyes were sunken in her head.
Brear had never encountered anyone with a condition like hers. The veteran surgeon worked on a plan.
“She didn’t know me from Adam,� said Brear. “We basically prayed about this for a moment.�
The woman’s minister held her head at a 45-degree angle so fluid would flow. Brear then made incisions at the corner of her eyelids to expose more of the eyeballs.
...
Brear said other than cataracts, her eyes were healthy.
“That was something I had never seen before,� he added.
Before deciding on ophthalmology, Brear, a 1978 graduate of the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, Texas, served a three-year general practice stint as a U.S. Public Health Service doctor in a barrio in San Antonio. While there, he provided general medical care and even delivered babies. Bringing a new life into the world, he described, as a miracle.
“That was fun,� said Brear.
The barrio was where he learned to speak Spanish.
While fun and interesting, Brear turned his medical career from general practice to ophthalmology.
“I get to see all different people - young, old, men and women,� he said. “You don’t have to tell people they are going to die.�
...
Besides the medical practice, Brear also owns Eye Deal, an optical shop next door to his practice. He also is a partner in the Culpeper Surgery Center, which was established in 2003, where he performs surgeries once a week.
Technological surgical advances in the last 10 to 15 years allow people who wear glasses to discard them by implanting accommodating lenses.
“The lens will go from seeing in a distance to close up with no glasses,� said Brear. “It’s for people with astigmatism.�
While Brear tends to the medical side, Kerry Hall serves as the practice’s business manager.
...
“It’s definitely very challenging,� said Hall, who has been working with Brear for 2 ½ years. “One thing we both agree upon is great patient care.�
...
Ophthalmology Technician Wes Murray has been working with Brear for about eight years, after working for nine years in Fredericksburg.
...
“I am originally from Culpeper,� said Murray. “It turned out Dr. Brear needed some help.

Dr. D. Russell Brear, an ophthalmologist at the Commonwealth Eye Center in Culpeper, first met Karen in August during a philanthropic mission trip in Honduras while working with "Sight for the Blind" program, a service that provides pricey sight-saving procedures at no cost to families who can't afford it.
...
Brear, sporting a blue disposable gown over his colorful scrubs and a surgical mask on his face, prepared for the 90-minute outpatient surgery on the brown-eyed teenager.
The procedureUnder monitored anesthesia care, Karen lay beneath an oversized operating microscope through which Brear looked.
The continuous beeping heart monitor and soothing Enrique Iglesias tunes filled the otherwise quiet room.
To begin, Brear placed a sterile metal lid speculum - a device used to hold a patient's eyelids open during surgery - on Karen's right eye while he created a tiny incision above her cornea.
Using tweezers, a tiny surgical knife and steady hands, Brear meticulously inserted a mini glaucoma shunt into Karen's right eye to help alleviate the pressure.
Meanwhile as a tiny camera captured Brear's every move, a monitor situated behind him displayed the precise procedure.
A handful of nurses assisted Brear by swabbing the excess fluid around Karen's right eye during the procedure.
Looking through the high-powered lens, Brear sutured the tiny incisions on Karen's eye to conclude the surgery.
...
After the surgery, Brear thanked the staff for donating their time and pointed out that a manufacturer contributed the materials - making Monday's procedure possible.
In addition to this charitable event, Brear also works with the Culpeper Free Clinic, the Lions Club and the American Academy of Ophthalmology offering a variety of free services.
And he feels good about doing it.
"It's great," he said."I have a talent that I can share and I owe humanity to try and do anything that I can to share my talent."
Brear said he'll continue to follow Karen's progress.
Still a bit groggy, Karen managed to ask Brear if he removed the stitches from her left eye.
He did.
