Dr. Benjamin P. Casella practices optometry with an emphasis on ocular disease at Casella Eye Center in Augusta, Georgia. The Center, which has been run by three generations of Cassellas since 1948, is geared toward com­pre­hen­sive and per­son­al­ized patient care through treat­ment and man­age­ment of eye dis­ease, and the fit­ting and pre­scrib­ing of all types of glasses and con­tact lenses.

Dr. Ben Cassella received his Doctorate of Optometry degree with honors from the UAB School of Optometry and went on to complete a residency in Ocular Disease at SUNY.  Prior to Optometry School, he earned a BA in Philosophy cum laude from the University of Georgia. He publishes and lectures nationally on Ocular Disease and was named the Georgia Optometric Association Young OD of the Year in 2012.  He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry.

Dr. Cassella says that he is excited to be part of a pazoo.com team approach to health and overall wellbeing that represents a fundamental shift in how people view their physical and psychological states.
