Defiance Optometric Group began as a one-man practice established in 1947 by Dr. James A. Meffley. Dr. Robert O. Burris joined him in 1966 and later James’ nephew Dr. Daniel L. Meffley in 1977.
Since that time, both Dr. James Meffley and Dr. Robert Burris have moved into retirement, Dr. Thomas E. Sandy joined the practice in 1986 and Dr. Deborah J. Stein in 2006. Dr. Daniel Meffley retired in 2019 and Dr. Jacquelyn G. Short joined the practice in October of 2021.
While there have been changes in the doctors at the office, one thing that has remained constant is Defiance Optometric Group’s commitment to providing the highest quality optometric care available. We are proud of our legacy as a progressive optometric office employing highly skilled personnel and the latest technology. We are committed to continuing to provide this same high-quality care to our patients for years to come.
