There’s been a Casel­la look­ing into Augusta’s eyes since 1948. The first was Dr. Vic­tor Casel­la, who opened the family’s Broad Street prac­tice after serv­ing his coun­try in World War II. He was joined by his son, Thomas, in 1978 who, in turn, was joined by his son, Ben, in 2008. Built on the foun­da­tion of a his­toric Broad Street the­ater, the Casel­la Eye Cen­ter is more than a fam­i­ly prac­tice, it’s a down­town tra­di­tion, and the Drs. Casel­la see them­selves as more than just a means of attain­ing prop­er eye care. With each patient they meet and treat, they are cel­e­brat­ing the ties that bind in the com­mu­ni­ty. At least that’s the way they see it.
