Eyes on Dr. T. Aaron Judd

We hope you enjoyed getting to know Dr. Frantz in our last “Eyes on our Doctors” blog.  You may recognize this weeks doctor from our Punta Gorda, Cape Coral or Fort Myers offices or you may have seen him here. Now its time for you to get to know our Chief Optometrist, Dr. Aaron Judd. Why did you choose to be an optometrist? In University I trained to become a secondary science teacher.  I taught in a public high school classes in physics and biology.  After two years in the classroom I investigated graduate programs and found eye care to be the perfect fusion for the miracle of life and vision with the physics of optics. What do you do in your free time? Having two children under the age of five does not leave much time for much else other than princesses and model trains.  Staying active in our beautiful area is easy with bicycling, running and water activities.  I have a fondness for all things on a mountain and try to snow ski at least once per year. What is your most memorable day? My first few years in practice were in the US Army after receiving a health professions scholarship to fund my training.  This allowed for many memorable moments.  On one occasion during a deployment, a detainee captured in the early days of the Iraqi insurgency had some eye problems and sent a letter to the International Red Cross requesting specific services.  My battalion was tasked for this mission and my soldiers and I convoyed across the country and over the Tigris River to provide care.  While giving emergent care to hostiles and being protected by our nation’s finest Marines and still providing the best care possible to people who likely bombed our fellow countrymen, and given the chance me also, that was very memorable. Who is your hero? COL Brian Allgood, MD.  Dr. Allgood was an outstanding Army Officer, Orthopedic Surgeon, and my first hospital commander in the Army.  A standout in all things in high school, college at West Point and in medical school, he represented all that is good and possible in our great country.  Serving in a ranger battalion and leading troops always from the front he modeled the way all men and women in the military should act and perform, in uniform and out.  He deployed to Iraq and served as  the chief medical officer in 2007 and while flying in a Blackhawk, along the same route that I had taken many times 2 years before, he and 11 other souls were shot down.  Our country lost an exceptional  citizen that day and his legacy continues in me everyday. Who is your mentor? Thankfully, I have had several real life mentors and heroes over the years, ordinary people who took extraordinary interest in a young man.  Mr. Merritt Roberts, Dr. Tom Boyd, Mr. Carl Surber, Dr. James Dixson, Dr. Michael Bennett, Dr. James Newman,  Dr. John Renaldo, and Dr. Jonathan Frantz. If you could have dinner with one person who would it be? Jesus of Nazareth.  Born to an unwed mother and a poor carpenter, he shaped and changed the world we now live in more likely than any other single human that has ever walked the Earth.  Almost no world religion denies his existence.  Spending some time with him over a meal would be very enlightening.   I would like to ask him for insight into the miracle of restoring eyesight, healing the sick, and loving and walking with those that most people overlook. What is your favorite superhero? Captain America.   It is just a great story.  He was a weak kid that wanted to serve his country.   Too weak and deemed too small to put on a uniform, too weak to pass the test, but with a strong heart and desire to fight.   He was willing to sacrifice all just for the chance to join.  It is this type of will that exemplifies the fighting American spirit in all of us.  What is more is that he was not great alone, but only with the help of many on his team. If you’d like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Judd or any of our Doctors call our main office at 239.418.0999 or click here to schedule online.
