Dr. Robin S. Coady (Retired)15E-001

Retiring in 2016, Dr. Coady provided eye care to the Fairbury community for 25 years. She purchased the practice from the late Dr. Earl Voigt in 1991 and moved the practice to its current location in 1995. In addition to providing excellent optometric care, Dr. Coady made significant contributions to the community including being past president and a longstanding member of the Fairbury Rotary Club. We greatly appreciate all of Dr. Coady’s contributions that have made Fairbury Vision Center the thriving, technically advanced practice it is today. We wish her all the best for an enjoyable and fulfilling retirement.
