Dr. Bailey, O.D. has been actively involved in all aspects of pre and post op eye care treatments, including cataract, corneal transplant and LASIK surgeries.

 
Dr. Ted Bailey, O.D. opened his first Optometry office in Mission Viejo, California in 1977 after graduating from the Southern California College of Optometry in 1977. He sold that office three years later to work with a renowned Ophthalmologist, Dr. Richard P. Kratz, in Newport Beach for the next ten years. During that time there were exciting advances in eye care, including the introduction of the IOL during cataract surgeries, improved Corneal Transplant surgeries, and RK. Dr. Bailey, O.D. was involved in all aspects of pre-op testing and post-op care of patients as well as heading a large contact lens and optical department. Dr. Kratz retired in 1991, transferring his huge patient base to the Ophthalmology Group at UCI. Dr. Bailey, O.D. continued his relationship with those patients by joining the UCI Group.
Moving to Northern California in the late 90’s, Dr. Bailey, O.D. joined Dr. Stephan Plager, M.D.’s practice in Santa Cruz after learning of Dr. Plager’s reputation and involvement in the local community and his compassion and desire to be in the forefront of Ophthalmology innovation. For the next eight years, Dr. Bailey, O.D. worked side by side with Dr. Plager establishing many exciting and innovative concepts in the eye care business. Dr. Bailey, O.D. has been actively involved in all aspects of pre and post op eye care treatments, including cataract, corneal transplant and LASIK surgeries.
He has thirty one years of experience in fitting rigid gas permeable contacts for Keratoconus and Corneal l Transplant patients. Dr. Bailey, O.D. is experienced in fitting many types of soft contact lenses, including Toric, Multifocal, and Multifocal-Toric lenses. The practice was the first and only Ophthalmologist/Optometrist team to have the new SROP (Surgical Reversal of Presbyopia) surgery in Mexico. Dr. Bailey, O.D. continues to donate his time in Mexico to help patients with advanced eye care.
After the sad passing of his colleague and friend, Dr. Stephan Plager, M.D. in September, 2007, he chose to purchase the practice to carry on the name of Plager Vision Center. Today, he carries on the values of experience, compassion and integrity that Dr. Plager evoked in his patients. Dr. Bailey, O.D. is a member of the American Optometric, California Optometric and Monterey Bay Optometric Societies. Dr. Bailey is certified to use therapeutical agents to treat most eye diseases and is also certified to treat primary open angle Glaucoma.
The Plager Vision and Optometric Center is in the process of adding associates and expanding services to better care for patients in the San Francisco peninsula and North and South Monterey Bay areas.
