Meet Our Optometrists
Arlington Eye Center provides innovative eye care services to patients from in and around Reno. We offer comprehensive eye health assessments, ocular disease diagnosis and treatment, contact lens evaluation and fitting, and prescriptions.
We welcome new patients and accept most major forms of insurance.
Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Drs. Travis and Cheryl Adlington, a husband wife optometric team, have proudly served Northern Nevada since 1989. After graduating at the top of their class, they went on to establish themselves in clinical practice, first in Incline Village, Nevada and then moved to Reno in the mid 90’s where they have been practicing optometry since. In 2000, both Cheryl and Travis became Fellows of the American Academy of Optometry.
Drs. Adlington’s passion for excellence is clearly evident in their obsession to harness both the powers of high technology and their own clinical skills to provide patients with the absolute clearest and most comfortable eyeglasses or contact lenses they have ever experienced.
Dr. Mary Ann Ellement grew up in San Diego and completed her undergraduate degree in Nutrition Science at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. She then studied and completed her Doctorate in Optometry at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico, School of Optometry.
Dr. Ellement grew up bilingual and is fluent in Spanish. During her studies in Puerto Rico, she was able to refine her comprehensive eye exams in both English and Spanish. As a part of her doctorate program, she completed clinical rotations at the Veterans Affairs clinic in Gainesville, Florida and at a private practice in Plano, Texas. Clinically, Dr. Ellement is interested in ocular surface diseases and specialty contact lenses.
When she’s not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son, in the beauty of the outdoors.
