Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Dr. Diana Christensen
Dr. Christensen obtained her undergraduate degree in nutrition and dietetics because she knew that a background in integrative medicine would
give her a baseline for understanding the body as a whole. And in 2008, she graduated from the Indiana University School of Optometry (IUSO) and began her work as an Independent Doctor of Optometry at Christensen Eye Care inside Sam’s Club Optical in Bloomington, IN. In 2015, she was awarded Sam’s Club’s Optometrist of the Year for innovations in eye care technology, including dry eye treatment.
Originally a Florida native, Dr. Christensen feels that it’s essential to bring a feeling of sunshine everywhere she goes.
When I’m not working, you can usually find me working out, meditating, or listening to a good podcast. I’m an explorer and outdoor enthusiast at heart, and you can find me doing all the things — walking, running, biking, mini-marathons, paddle boarding, literally doing any sport. I also love spending quality time with my family — my teenage twin boys, husband, and mini golden doodle, Zoey.
