    EyecareGraduating from Ohio State University’s College of Optometry in 1981 with his medical degree, Gary Contner came back to his hometown and went into practice with Dr. Jeff Franz. It wasn’t until the late 1980’s that he moved the practice to its current location at 1008 North Main Street Bellefontaine. In 1995 Dr. Christopher Gamble another OSU College of Optometry graduate joined the practice.

    Today Drs. Contner and Gamble continue to specialize in complete eye exams and vision care including diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. They offer the highest quality of optical goods, contacts lenses and accessories. “Our marketing is 100% word-of-mouth. We think people are more comfortable if a friend has mentioned your name.”

    EyecareGary has been in business for 34 years and when asked about an interesting fact that most people don’t know, he shared that in the near future Dr. Gamble may buy the practice. However there are no retirement plans for Dr. Contner at this time; he would continue to work four days per week.

    Dr. Gary Contner said, “I continue to be a chamber member to do my part to further the business environment in our community. I was a chamber board member for a few years and made many connections.”

    Thank you C and G Eyecare for your serviced to our community and long standing support of the Chamber.
