The Official Eye Docs of Rock

Playing at a stage a near you

Give it up for this longtime band, which started playing together in 1987 when three of the current members were optometry students at Ohio State. Their next gig is entertaining Vision Expo West attendees on Sept. 18 for the conference’s opening night party at the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas. Bassist Michael “Jules” Raies, keyboardist/guitarist Mark Schindler, guitarist Pat Dollenmayer, keyboard player Bob Glass and drummer Tony Fenton have rocked the optometry convention circuit since 2000. They’ve also played at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and have been an opening act for such classic rock bands as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Cheap Trick. All the band members but Schindler are practicing optometrists who look to rock as a way to have fun — and bring their fellow eyecare pros along for the good times.
