Dr. Rieger grew up on her family’s centennial farm in rural Chatsworth and was educated in the Prairie Central school district. After graduating from optometry school, she practiced in a group ophthalmology clinic for a short time. She also worked part-time with Dr. Robin Coady at Fairbury Vision Center. In 2002, she was offered opportunity to join Dr. Craig Witte in private practice. She benefitted from his mentorship and expertise in children’s vision and learning-related vision problems and later became the owner of the practice. After nineteen years of practicing in Bloomington-Normal, she is excited to be back “home” at Fairbury Vision Center and be able to bring specialized children’s eye care and Vision Therapy to the area.
Dr. Rieger lives in rural Forrest with her husband and three children where they raise cattle and engage in grain farming. She is a member of the Fairbury Rotary Club and is a board member on the Fairbury Area Chamber of Commerce.
A Pontiac-native, Dr. Brown returned to the area and started practicing at Fairbury Vision Center and Pontiac Family Eye Care in 2015. She became a partner in the practice in 2017 with the retirement of Dr. Robin Coady. Due to scheduling adjustments, as of October 2018, Dr. Brown will be seeing patients at our Pontiac location. She will continue caring for patients from both practices for after-hours emergencies and may occasionally fill-in at Fairbury Vision Center.
