Our History

Optometric Associates was founded in May of 1981 by Dr. Wolfram Andrews and Dr. Jay Stoltzfus. The two optometrists met while studying in Philadelphia and always dreamed of having their own practice. They both agreed that a group practice would offer them more flexibility and more time with family, while being able to provide excellent primary eye care and being accessible to their patient clientele. After 32 years of practice, Dr. Stoltzfus retired in 2013. In 2014, the practice welcomed Dr. Jonathan Andrews and Dr. Maria Downey to their staff.
