Dr. Erin McCleary, O.D.

“I place great value on providing quality, comprehensive eye and vision care for my patients. This includes, especially, the smallest patients who are unable to tell an adult that something might be wrong.”

Dr. McCleary

Dr. McCleary grew up on a farm in Emerado, North Dakota. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with Honors from the University of North Dakota (UND) in 2003. Dr. McCleary then moved to Oregon to attend Pacific University College of Optometry (PUCO). She received her Doctorate of Optometry with Honors from PUCO in 2007. During her time at PUCO, she obtained membership within the Beta Sigma Kappa International Optometric Honor Society and was awarded the Tole Greenstein Award which honors excellence in Pediatric and Binocular Vision.

Dr. McCleary has been practicing Advanced Optometric Care in Connecticut since 2007 and is very active in the Connecticut Association of Optometrists (CAO). She received the CAO Young OD of the Year Award for 2010. Having served on the CAO Board of Directors since 2011, she is currently the Vice President of the CAO.

She is at ease working with infants and other special populations who may have differing abilities and/or needs. Her ability to speak Spanish has also allowed her to help care for those in often under-served areas.

Dr. McCleary, her husband, Brad Lindquist, and their two children live in West Hartford. On the off chance she has a few minutes of free time, Dr. McCleary enjoys playing piano, quilting, traveling, and the occasional [slow!] run.

She is very excited to be joining forces with Dr. Maglio: “I place great value on providing quality, comprehensive eye and vision care for my patients. This includes, especially, the smallest patients who are unable to tell an adult that something might be wrong. I believe communication is paramount and aim to have my patients (and their families) fully understand their specific conditions as well as all treatment options. I sincerely look forward to taking care of the families of Plainville.”
