Dr. Brittany Radke and her family will be moving to Minnesota in March 2018.  Dr. Radke has served her patient base here in Madison for five years after graduating from Southern College of Optometry following her graduation at UW- Madison. We are sorry to see her leave Eye Contact, however, we celebrate their success in her husband’s new position as an anesthesiologist in the Gopher State. 

Her last day at Eye Contact will be March 6, 2018. 

Dr. Desai We continue to welcome Dr. Kesha Desai here in Madison at both locations – Eye Contact East and Eye Contact Madison-West. Dr. Desai graduated in 2016 from the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, IL. She got her B.S. in Psychology and B.S. in Biology from Loyola University of Chicago. She is currently a member of the Wisconsin Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association. She comes to Madison Eye Contact with experience in prescribing glasses and contact lenses, diagnosing and managing ocular disease, and managing pediatrics. Dr. Desai enjoys traveling, spending time with her husband exploring Madison, and visiting her family and friends.

Eye Contact’s professional staff also includes Dr. David W Nelson and Dr. Valerie Vanden Boom.  Dr. Nelson sees patients at Eye Contact East and Eye Contact Madison-West and will soon begin seeing patients at Eye Contact – Isthmus in the Galaxie building on East Washington Avenue in March next to Festival Foods.  Dr. Vanden Boom sees patients currently at Eye Contact Madison West and will soon begin seeing patients in our new Eye Contact-Isthmus as well.
