About Us


Elliott Optometry takes pride in providing the best in optometric care to patients of all ages, infants to senior citizens.  Dr. Russell  P. Elliott received his pre-optometry education from Illinois Wesleyan University and is a 1970 graduate of the Indiana University School of Optometry.  Ranking 3rd in his graduating class, he had the distinction of serving as Class President  his senior year. Completing over 800 hours of postgraduate  education, as well as having practiced with his father ( the late Gerald C. Elliott, O.D. ) for 24 years, have given him a wealth of optometric knowledge and clinical experience. 


Known as " Rusty " to many of his long time patients, Dr. Elliott performs an exceptionally thorough examination on every patient utilizing the latest in high-tech equipment. This allows him to detect cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration and other conditions at their earliest stages. As a medically trained optometrist, Dr. Elliott routinely treats  most conditions of the eye including glaucoma, corneal ulcers, eye infections, allergies, abrasions and inflammations. He co-manages cataract, secondary cataract, lasik and other eye surgeries with many of the finest surgeons in the Midwest. 




Dr. Russell P. Elliott, is well trained in all phases of the profession and routinely performs comprehensive exams on infants as well as pre-schoolers, grade-schoolers, teens, adults and senior citizens.  It is not necessary for an infant or child to be able to know their letters or  verbally respond in order to be examined.  Dr. Elliott uses his optometric instruments to discern the degree of any farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism present. Patients of all ages are tested for binocular function and depth perception. Likewise, all patients are checked for glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. Special testing equipment is used to evaluate peripheral vision, macular degeneration and other retinal conditions when present.  Dr. Elliott also co-manages cataract, lasik, glaucoma, and secondary cataract surgery with many of the top surgeons in the Midwest. 



As an optometrist, Dr. Elliott treats all types of eye injuries, eye infections and diseases.  He is able to remove steel and other embedded particles from the cornea or other parts of the eye. Available 24 hrs. a day, he has an excellent relationship with specialists in all areas, should their services be required.  To reach Dr. Elliott after hours simply call the office and follow the instructions on the answering machine.



Dr. Elliott fits many types of contact lenses including oxygen permeable, soft, bifocal and astigmatism lenses.  A large inventory of contact lenses is maintained so that a new patient can often leave with lenses the day they are examined.  Patients with lost or torn contacts can usually be helped immediately.  You'll find a huge frame inventory including selections of Designer and Value frames.  We also specialize in frame repair. 

 "No one adjusts glasses like Dr. Elliott!" 

We promise to take more than one hour to make your glasses!! 


Elliott Optometry came into being  in 1950 when Dr. Gerald C. Elliott, Russell's father, opened his practice on the East side of the square.  Shortly thereafter he moved to the Tucker Building which occupied what is now the parking lot immediately South of Eitel's Flowers.  In 1960 he purchased the Hutcheson Building which has since been renamed  the  Elliott Professional Building , located here at 125 E. Washington St. Dr. Russell P Elliott joined his father in practice in July, 1970.  Father and son practiced together for 24 years before Alzheimers' forced Dr. Gerald's retirement in 1994.  Dr. Russell P. Elliott continues to practice at this location.  Dr. Elliott loves his work and " hopes to practice another 20 years".

When not in the office, Dr. Elliott enjoys golfing, motorcycling and flying his vintage 1946 single engine Cessna. He also spends time building and flying R/C airplanes, snow skiing, walking and following his beloved Hoosier basketball team and the Colts.  Dr.Elliott and his wife Carolyn Torr Elliott, reside in rural Putnam County.
