Dr. Wojton was raised in the Somerton section of Northeast Philadelphia, graduated from Archbishop Ryan H.S. (’84), and earned his B.S. in Exercise Physiology from Temple University. He attended the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago which also included a 4 month rotation at the Cleveland, Ohio, Veterans Administration Hospital.
He has been practicing optometry at Normandy Optical since 1999. Although he sees patients of all ages, he especially enjoys examining children and treating conditions unique to them.
He has been a guest presenter at both St. John the Evangelist’s Enrichment Day program and Maureen M. Welch’s career day. He is also a member of the American Optometric Society and has served as a clinical examiner for the National Boards.
Outside of his practice, Dr. Wojton is married and has three daughters, 2 in college and his youngest is an 8th grader at Holy Trinity in Morrisville. He has been coaching youth soccer for over ten years and has been an assistant track coach at Conwell Egan H.S. for 5 years. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, following Penn State football, photography, and traveling. In 2014, he achieved his goal of visiting all 50 states. Next on his list is golfing in every state (1 to go), and then visiting all of the Canadian Provinces (7 down, 3 to go). He also participates in long distance runs and triathlons, but does not enjoy those.
A pain in one of my eyes woke me up in the middle of the night. It felt as if something was scratching my eye. I tried flushing my eye with cold water but that didn’t help and the pain kept me from falling back asleep. The next day I went to Dr. Mike’s office and explained what had happened. He made time to see me right away and determined that although my eyeball was ok, something was lodged underneath my eyelid. A few minutes later he was able to extract it and the pain was gone. I want to thank Dr. Mike for being there for me when I really needed someone.
