Central Nevada Vision, owned by Amber Belaustegui O.D., recently merged with Daniel Rowan, O.D. and Mark Michitsch, O.D. of EyeZone Nevada. Dr. Belaustegui will remain the primary optometrist in residence at the Fallon office. Additionally, EyeZone acquired the practice of Tyson Kales, O.D. located on Arlington Avenue in Midtown Reno.
