Poplar Bluff Staff
Dr Troy L. Bell
I am a graduate of Indiana University-School of Optometry and have been in practice in Poplar Bluff for over 20 years. I am therapeutically licensed to diagnose and treat various ocular diseases. I am involved in the mission efforts of Fellowship of Christian Optometrists; in providing eye care to third world countries. I love my practice here and am devoted to my patient’s eye care. My wife, Shelley, and I have five children: Jonathan, Sarah, Taryn, Ella, and Anna.
Certified Optician, Office Manager
I began working at Dr. Bell’s Family Eye Care in the beginning, June 2000. I have enjoyed watching and being a part of the growth of a wonderful practice. I have been in the optical field for 24 years. I enjoy going to church at Harviell Church of Christ. My husband Rick and I reside in Poplar Bluff. We have two children, Scott and Ashley and five grandchildren, Timothy, Gracie, Wyatt, Chase, and Izzy Jo.
I have been Dr. Bell’s optical tech since 2007. I conduct all the pre-screenings, visual fields, and fundus photos. My husband and I have two children, Landon and Molly who keep us busy with their various activities.
I live in Poplar Bluff with my husband Josh and two daughters Georgia & Gemma. I started working at Bell Family Eye Care in May of 2019 as an optician and moved to the lab in May of 2020. I love my job! Whether I’m upstairs helping patients pick the perfect frame, or down in the lab edging lenses for that frame, every day brings a new challenge and more to learn.
I started working for Dr Bell Family Eye Care in February 2023. As your optician, I am learning every day the best ways to give you a great experience. I will help you select the lens, lens enhancements, and frame that will meet your comfort and style.
I reside in Poplar Bluff with my husband, Max. We have 3 daughters, Abigayle, Lilyan, and Emmalynn.
When I’m not working I am on the go with Competition Cheer, tumbling, and everything in between for my girls. I enjoy hunting, fishing, gardening, photography and karaoke. My most treasured time is spent with my family and all the memories we create together.
