Tabitha G. Temple, O.D.
Dr. Temple joined the practice in 1997, working for Dr. Richard Carman, and then purchased the practice in 2002. She has helped expand the services provided, including thorough disease screening, co-management of cataract surgery and LASIK, and wide variety of contact lenses. She also participates in local school screenings, is a member of the IOA and AOA, and serves as a clinical examiner with the National Board of Examiners in Optometry. She does speak Spanish, although it has been some time since she'd say she is fluent!
Dr. Temple is a graduate of Warsaw Community High School and has been a resident of Warsaw since birth. She, her husband Derek, 7 year old daughter Madelyn, and 3 year old Claire are active in their church and value family time with their cat Remington and dogs Zoe and Simone. They also enjoy local festivities and sporting events. Since the birth of Madelyn, Dr. Temple has decreased her office hours (as her goal is to avoid missing any more time with Madelyn and Claire as absolutely necessary) and is available for exams 2 days of the week.
It is Dr. Temple's desire that everyone be able to receive proper vision care, and know that it is our priority to extend that care to you with respect and sincerity

- 1997 Doctor of Optometry from IU Bloomington

Scott J. Caughell, O.D., FAAO
We are excited to have Dr. Caughell at our practice. He brings a much needed eye care specialty to the Warsaw area. While Dr. Caughell is fully trained to handle all of your primary and medical eye care needs (newborn to senior), he has specialized training in pediatric optometry (children's vision), binocular vision (double vision, depth perception, "lazy eye"), vision therapy, and vision related learning difficulties.
Dr. Caughell is at the practice full time and lives here in Warsaw with his wife Kiley, 7 year old Noah, 5 year old Jonah and baby Ezra. Can't forget their dog Angel as well! He enjoys Church activities, being outdoors, and trying to keep his house in one piece.
Dr. Caughell has a passion for children's vision and is very active in spreading the importance of regular vision care in this special population. Remember the first recommended full eye exam by an eye doctor is at 6 months old.
