About

Dr. Schilling

Portrait of Dr. Schilling with Boise in the backgroundBorn in Danville, Illinois, Dr. William (Bill) Schilling  moved to Idaho when he was ten years old. After graduating from Jerome High School, he spent a year at Boise State University, before his desire for adventure led him to join the Air Force.  An initial four years of active duty were followed by another sixteen in the Idaho Air National Guard.  During twenty years of military service, Bill was able to travel to six of our seven continents! Unless there is suddenly a need for eye exams there, he will skip Antarctica.

 

While in the Guard, Bill earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Boise State University.  Approaching the end of his service, he decided it was time for new adventures, and completed graduate studies at the Pacific University College of Optometry in 2010. Initially practicing optometry in the Northern Idaho town of Hayden, he moved to South East Boise after 3 years.

 

In 2015, bent on yet another adventure, Dr. Schilling opened his own practice in the South East Boise nook known as Bown Crossing. Barber Town Eye Care is a labor of love, and Dr. Schilling looks forward to growing it, as the surrounding area flourishes!

 

Dr. Schilling is proudly a member of both the American Optometric Association and the Idaho Optometric Physicians.

 

The (Hi)story behind our Name

Jessi Jones-Paisley

Deanna enjoying a rest during her summiting of Mt. St. Helens.Jessi was born and raised in Boise, Idaho, and it really is where she feels the most at home. She stumbled into optical in 2013, working at a clinic in Boise, and has loved it ever since.

 

She spends most of her free time with her husband and their animals, either lounging out at home or going on adventures. She is a huge believer in animal rights, and loves the animal community here in Boise. She also does a lot of work with rescues around the area.

 

 

The Barber dam, mill, power plant, and company town were built by the Barber Lumber Company in the early 1900s, to process timber harvested north of Boise. At one time, the tree-lined streets of the bustling mill town housed 105 families, and included a hotel, general store and an eight grade public school. The mill was in operation until the Great Depression forced its closure and dismantling in 1934.  Many of the original homes were relocated to Boise. Today only the powerhouse and dam remain. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

Services

Comprehensive Eye Exams

The American Optometric Association (AOA) guidelines recommend comprehensive eye examinations every one to two years, depending on the ages and/or needs of patients.

 

These exams involve careful testing of all aspects of your vision.  Not only do we check your visual acuity, but we also evaluate the health of your eyes.  This allows us to find early signs of serious eye problems, including glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.

 

Additionally these exams provide us with the ability to detect early signs of serious general health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure and risk of stroke.

 

Based upon the results of your exam, we then recommend a treatment plan for your individual needs.

 

Contact Lens Fitting

In order to successfully wear contact lenses, you will need lens care kits, as well as tailored instructions for hygiene.  Barber Town Eye Care provides these along with follow up visits and tips as needed to maximize the comfort of your new contacts.

 

Emergency Eye Care

In many cases an optometrist is better equipped to treat emergencies involving the eyes than an ER.  If you find that you are experiencing symptoms listed below during our working hours, please contact our office for an immediate evaluation:

 

  • Eye infections
  • Foreign bodies
  • Trauma to the eyes
  • Scratched eyes
  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Lost or broken contact lenses or eyeglasses
  • Flashes or Floaters in your vision
  • Red or painful eyes
  • Dislodged contact lenses
  • Uncomfortable, itchy, or irritated eyes
