Doctors & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Vision Source Geneseo, LLC the leading provider of vision care products and services in Geneseo.
Dr.Bordwell learned about the importance of correct vision at an early age, as he began wearing glasses in first grade. He decided to become an optometrist partly due to his family’s history of eye problems. His mother and two of her siblings were determined to have congenital cataracts, and although that was in the late 1920’s, she always had good eye care. Dr. Bordwell graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry May 14, 1985. He worked in Chicago for an ophthalmologist for almost two years before opening his practice in Geneseo, IL. His office started out in a business previously owned by Dr. James Farlik.
Dr. Bordwell grew up in the Washington, Iowa area. Washington, like Geneseo, is well known for its “small town” atmosphere and therefore the similarity drew him to Geneseo. Dr. Bordwell invested in the community by building a brand new office, which subsequently won an award from the Geneseo Chamber of Commerce in 2005. Dr. Bordwell celebrated his 25th year working for this small community and surrounding neighbors in 2012 by hosting a free movie matinee for all generations at the local theatre.
Dr. Bordwell regularly attends many Illinois Optometric Society meetings to further his understanding of the newest techniques and products available to consumers. He is also part of a nation-wide group of doctors known as “Vision Source”. Vision Source was founded in 1991 with the belief that eye health care is best provided by an independent family eye doctor, free to make his or her own decisions about what is best for the continued good vision of the patient. As a member of Vision Source, a private practice optometrist has access to the shared knowledge and resouces of a network with more than 2,300 offices.
While in college, Dr. Bordwell became involved with Volunteer Optometric Service to Humanity, and took part in two different mission trips to give eye exams and distribute glasses. Dr. Bordwell most recently went on a mission trip with a group of other doctors in January 2013 to Indonesia, and he continues to take part in Optometry Giving Sight.
