Doctor retires from Plainfield Eye Care

PLAINFIELD —

 

Prior to his retirement, Cory Shaffer OD, spent 40 years in the practice of optometry that included the US Navy, Indiana University’s  School of Optometry, and Plainfield Eye Care.

Shaffer attended Millikin University in Decatur, Ill., on a basketball scholarship where he received his BS degree in biology in 1968. He graduated from Indiana University’s School of Optometry in 1972.

Following his graduation he served as an optometrist in the United States Navy in Virginia Beach, VA. Before starting private practice, Shaffer returned to IU’s School of Optometry as a clinical instructor for two years. In 1976 he joined the founding partner, Dr. Tom Maloney at Plainfield Eye care. His quick humor and concern for his patients made Shaffer a valued partner.

While in practice Shaffer was the youngest optometrist to be appointed to Indiana Optometry Board that oversees the licensing and standards for professional practice in Indiana. He was awarded the governor’s prestigious Sagamore of the Wabash for his eight years of service as a board member.

Plainfield Eye Care has continued to grow as a practice serving families in central Indiana for more than 50 years. Dr. Beth Groninger-Bright joined Shaffer in 1991, and Dr. Megan Walton joined the practice

“Plainfield Eye Care has established itself as a community cornerstone by serving area residents with professional and friendly care from the moment they step through the front doors,” Shaffer said. “I’m proud to have been a part of that legacy.”

Shaffer and his wife, Jan, have two sons and two grandsons. In retirement, Shaffer is enjoying spending more time in his woodworking shop, joining friends on local golf courses, and honing new skills as the family’s grill chef. While maintaining his primary residence in Plainfield, he hopes to spend his winters in the warmer southwest climate.

“I know I’ll miss my patients, especially those families that span two or three generations, but I won’t miss setting my alarm clock,” he said.

The staff will host a retirement open house for Shaffer from 1 to 4 p.m. June 9 at Plainfield Eye Care, 1855 Stafford Road in Plainfield. For more information, call the office at 839-2368.
