Drs. Chan, Moon and Associates welcome Jonathon Ross, O.D., M.S., to their eye-care team at their Grass Valley practice.

Ross and his wife, Shering, said they are excited to join the community and continue the tradition of providing excellent health care.

As an Eagle Scout, Ross always hoped to settle in a mountainous region that made outdoor activities readily available.

He particularly enjoys spending time with his wife and their dog Jay-Jay. He enjoys road and mountain biking, snowboarding, golfing, fishing and cooking. Transitioning to Northern California has been a welcome change from a busy, metropolitan lifestyle in Orange County.

Ross received both his Doctor of Optometry and Master of Science: Vision Science degrees from Southern California College of Optometry, at Marshall B. Ketchum University.

He completed clinical externships that included rotations at both Cedars-Sinai Medical Group and West Los Angeles VA.

Dr. Ross is also an active contributor to the scientific community, particularly in the area of dry eye disease.

He has had the privilege of presenting key findings from his thesis research at the American Academy of Optometry (AAO), where he is a current candidate for fellowship.

Ross provides comprehensive eye health and vision care for patients of all ages. His areas of interest include the treatment and management of dry eye, eye allergy, eye disease (i.e. glaucoma, macular degeneration), and co-managing eye surgery (i.e. cataract, LASIK).

Ross will be establishing a dry eye clinic within the practice.

Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the anterior surface of the eye that often goes undiagnosed and untreated. Often, patients with mild forms of the condition will struggle unknowingly without proper management.

Symptoms often include one or more of the following: dryness, gritty/sandy sensation, burning, redness, light sensitivity, and blurred vision.

Adding his expertise at Drs. Chan, Moon and Associates will provide patients with proper diagnosis of their condition, as well as developing a structured therapy and treatment plan to help alleviate symptoms.

“It is my goal to help patients achieve their best vision possible while ensuring that their eyes remain healthy throughout their entire life,” Ross said.

Ross is now accepting new patients. Call Drs. Chan, Moon and Associates at 530-273-3190 to make an appointment.

Drs. Chan, Moon and Kirschbaum are located at 360 Sierra College Drive, Suite 100, Grass Valley.
