Retirement Announcement – Robert K. Butryn, MD

It has been an absolute pleasure to serve my hometown community for the past 23 years as an ophthalmologist.  I have had the privilege of meeting many people and developing lifelong friendships with so many of my patients. It is therefore with mixed emotion that I announce my retirement as of April 1st, 2021.  Caring for you has been the most rewarding part of time at Northern Vision Eye Care. I appreciate your loyalty throughout the years and will take the memories of all I have experienced into my retirement.

I am very pleased to announce that after much reflection, I have selected Alicia Eby, MD and Justin Tannir, MD at Traverse City Eye to assume the care of my patients at their established practice location. They are both highly qualified, caring physicians, trained in the latest and most advanced medical and surgical techniques. I know that they will take care of you as if you were family, just as I have considered you part of mine.

Many of the staff members that have enjoyed caring for you, including Dr. Amy Ranger will be joining the team at Traverse City Eye as well. Fortunately, the electronic medical record software used at Northern Vision is the same used at Traverse City Eye which facilitates a seamless transition of your individual medical record. You can reach Traverse City Eye by visiting their website, or calling them at 231-935-8101.
