Richard Choryan, OD

Dr Richard Choryan is a graduate of Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, IL. He specializes in family practice and unique vision needs. He has been serving Caledonia and the surrounding area for 35 years. He is involved in local community organizations as well as trying to keep up with his grandchildren.

Dr Choryan resides in Caledonia and can often be seen enjoying the Caledonia section of Kent Trails.

Jennifer Sowers, OD

Dr. Jennifer Sowers is a graduate of Michigan College of Optometry at Ferris State University and Grand Valley State University. During her training she took rotations at the Grand Rapids Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic, WoW Vision Therapy, Grand Rapids Ophthalmology and the St. Mary’s Diabetes and Endocrine Center. Her professional interests include pediatrics, glaucoma management and medical treatment of dry eye syndrome.
 
Dr. Sowers became interested in pediatric vision care after discovering her own son needed glasses at 17 months old. Once he started wearing glasses, his (already great) motor and social skills were markedly improved. Because of this experience Dr. Sowers is a strong advocate for the AOA’s InfantSEE program which provides no-cost vision exams to infants between 6 and 12 months of age.
 
Dr. Sowers lives in Caledonia with her husband Eric and two small children. When she’s not examining eyes she spends time drinking coffee at Essential Bean or near the water at the family cottage on Green Lake.

Timothy Vorgias, OD

Dr. Timothy Vorgias is originally from Ada, Michigan. He attended Cornerstone University for his undergraduate degree and then Michigan College of Optometry at Ferris State University for his doctorate which he obtained in 2015. Training rotations for Dr. Vorgias included the Grand Rapids Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic, St. Mary's Diabetes and Endocrine Center, and Cherry Street Heart of the City Health Center. Dr. Vorgias enjoys seeing patients of all ages and is particularly interested in treating amblyopia and managing patients with diabetic retinopathy. In addition to working at Caledonia Vision Center, he currently spends one day a week visiting nursing homes in the Grand Rapids area providing eye care to the residents there.
 
Outside of eyes, Dr. Vorgias' other interests include spending time with his wife and family, listening to and playing music, and going for walks. Dr. Vorgias and his wife have a passion for mission trips and have been twice to Guyana in South America and plan on more mission trips in the future.
