Meet the Optometrists

Dr. Cheryl K. Robson

Dr. Cheryl K. Robson was born in 1954 in Easton, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Easton Area High School in 1972, New York University in New York, NY (B.A. in Biology) in January of 1976, and New England College of Optometry in Boston, MA in May of 1980. She also has an internship in visual therapy from the SUNY School of Optometry in New York, NY (June to August 1979).


After graduating NEWENCO, she began practicing in Grand Forks, ND. In 1983, she moved to Virginia and began her practice in Winchester in December 1983, next to Pearle Vision Center in the Apple Blossom Mall. There have been several moves over the 25 years of practice in Winchester (including practicing with Drs. Eisele and Legge, and next to Sterling Optical). The most recent (and probably last!) move in December 2008 was to our current location at 905 Cedar Creek Grade, which is the realization of her dream to have a full-service optometric practice, including an optical center.

She is a member of the American Optometric Association (1976 to present), Virginia Optometric Association (1983 to present), Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society (1978), Board of Trustees for VOA (2004-2007), Virginia Academy of Optometry (2014) and she is currently the secretary of Blue Ridge Optometric Society. She also serves as a keyperson for our State Senator and Representative. She is an active participant in both the InfantSee and Vision USA programs of the American Optometric Association.

She has been married to L. Mark Robson since 1983. They have two children: Eric and Elizabeth. Dr. Robson enjoys traveling and music. She is actively involved at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Winchester, having served in many capacities there, including a former secretary of council, Grace Chorale, and Grace Ringers (handbells). She is also a member of Arts Chorale of Winchester.

Dr. Robson sees patients Monday through Thursday.

  • "I got new glasses here a few weeks ago. I was having an awful time with the bifocal reading up close. An incredible lady there figured out exactly what was wrong, the measurements were correct but I needed a short lens and she assured me it was no trouble to order replacements. The new lenses came in and I got them replaced today. What a huge difference. Thank you so much for taking the time to make sure they were exactly right!"
