Established in 1997 as a merger of the Optometric Physician practices of Dr. Dwight Thibodeaux and Dr. Paul Tachau, Accent on Vision has since grown to become one of the largest and most comprehensive eye care centers in the state. Dr. Ashley Pulis has recently joined the practice. She brings a strong medical background and youthful vigor to the office. Full-scope optical, medical and minor surgical services are delivered in the 4000 square foot facility in central Santa Fe. An array of diagnostic instrumentation for the management of glaucoma and retinal disease includes measurement and contour scanning of the optic nerve, retinal surface tomography and wide field laser digital retinal imaging. Accent on Vision is one of only a handful of eyecare practices with this technology in New Mexico. The optical dispensary features designer frame and sunglass lines such as Oakley, Maui Jim, Ray-Ban, La Font, Coach, Prada, and Versace ― just to name a few. An in-house lab, same day service and certified opticians complete the package of comprehensive and convenient optical services. Anna Bell Hesch, practice administrator and ABO Certified Optician, leads the staff with service and competence rarely seen in the industry. Certified Technicians assist in surgical procedures, contact lens fitting, patient training and low vision services. Accent on Vision is the only low vision practice in northern New Mexico. Our mission is to preserve the precious gift of sight by delivering state-of-the-art eyecare and eyewear in a professional and friendly environment. Our ultimate goal is to give our patients a quality experience worthy of recommendation to others.
