Dr. Tonya Bourn
Dr. Bourn grew up in Murrayville, Illinois. She graduated from Routt Catholic High School, earned a Bachelor of Science degree
in biology from Illinois College and her Doctorate of Optometry from the University of Missouri-St. Louis School of Optometry. Dr. Bourn is currently
enrolled in post-graduate certification programs at the University of Western States and the Institute for Functional Medicine.
Dr. Bourn has been an independent practitioner and owner of clinics in Jacksonville and Springfield since 1997. She is a member of
the American Optometric Association, the Illinois Optometric Association, Ocular Wellness and Nutrition Society, and The Institute of Functional Medicine.
Dr. Bourn provides primary care including contact lenses, refractive surgery pre-/post-procedure care, dry eye
management, and pediatrics. She is fully licensed to prescribe therapeutic pharmacological medications and treat
ocular disease and emergencies. Identifying as a "Functional Optometrist", Dr. Bourn's philosophy is to provide full-scope optometry
through root cause analysis. This patient-centered approach allows her to look beyond a particular set of symptoms and identify issues related to oculo-motor dysfunction, learning difficulties,
and nutritional deficiencies that may be underlying factors in individuals' acute or chronic health issues.
In her free time, Dr. Bourn enjoys running, interval training, reading, and laughing with friends and family. Looking forward, she plans on
incorporating the practice of yoga and mindfulness training into her wellness regimen.
Kristina is the Bourn Vision team's Office Manager. Affectionately known as "the task master", Kristina is likely to greet you with a
warm smile while simultaneously juggling the practice's schedule, office flow, inventory, and communications. Multi-tasking in a dynamic
environment and a commitment to patient care are second nature as evidenced by her 10 years of experience in eyecare and previous
administration of a home daycare. Kristina is a lifelong resident of Central Illinois and enjoys spending time with her family (especially her grandchildren), crafting, and church activities.
Kathy joined Bourn Vision as an Opthalmic Technician in 2015. She began her career in eyecare under the tutelage of Dr. David Dodwell and has over 10 years of experience
conducting diagnostic tests and procedures as well as assisting with vision examinations. Kathy
considers herself blessed to have a job she truly loves and it shows in the care she provides for her patients. Born and raised in Springfield, Kathy enjoys
spending time with her precious grandchildren, listening to rock-n-roll music, and watching the Chicago Cubs.

Your vision is important to you - and it's important to us. When you come for your appointment, we make sure to schedule ample time so you will never
feel rushed. Patient care is our primary focus.
Our professionals believe that early detection and treatment of eye conditions are key in
avoiding serious vision loss as well as maintaining overall health. A comprehensive eye examination will evaluate how well you see, identify potential problems,
and evaluate stressors on your entire visual system.
Once completed, your treatment plan may include corrective lenses, vision therapy, or simply a recommendation that you have your eyes
examined again in a specific period of time. If you have
certain eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, or complications from diabetes, your eyecare will require special attention.
We can effectively manage these conditions and prescribe the appropriate medications or, when necessary, arrange for surgery.
We co-manage with surgeons and hospitals across Illinois and Missouri to assure your best overall care.

With all the contact lens choices available, it’s especially important to work with a doctor who will fit you with the best lenses for you
as an individual. And because contact lenses interact directly with delicate eye tissues, it’s important for contact lens wearers
to have annual eye examinations to detect problems before they threaten your successful contact lens wear, your eye health, and
At Bourn Vision, we understand the benefits of proper contact lens correction and usage. As incidence of dry eye conditions increase,
promoting healthy, clean contact lenses becomes even more important. Dr. Bourn expects frequent replacement of contact lenses to promote optimal corneal and tear film health.
That's why our goal is to not only be your one-stop-shop for top quality care, but to also provide the lowest prices of lenses in the area!
