Doctor Norman Brandon was born in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada and immediately displayed a curiosity for how things worked; exploring everything he could get his hands on. As he grew up, his curiosity became more focused and he realized that he was ultimately most fascinated by the eye. Before he graduated high school he had set his sights on a future in optometry and has never regretted that early decision.
In 1999 he graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry and began a clinical rotation in the Marshfield Clinic, during which time Dr. Orley Jensen's office in Madison became available. Dr. Brandon's wife, Angie, grew up in the small Wisconsin town of Mt. Sterling, near the Mississippi River, so Wisconsin has always been close to her heart. In many ways Wisconsin seemed similar to the rural Ontario, Canada area Dr. Brandon called home. With a small private office for sale, the couple felt they simply could not pass up the opportunity to move to the Middleton/Madison, Wisconsin area and own their own business.
Dr. Brandon has found that the most exciting part of owning his own business is being able to find new ways to improve vision and then watching the smile light up his patients' faces when they see more than they're accustomed to viewing. He has established Brandon Eyes as an environment of change, new technology, new products and new challenges.
Optometry aside, Dr. Brandon made another life altering decision in his teens; it was during these years that he met his wife. The couple married during his last year of optometry school and has three energetic boys, Luke, Evan and Alex. The entire family is thrilled that they chose to settle in the Madison, Wisconsin area and enjoy taking in all of the magnificent sights and activities that this region has to offer.
Dr. Danielle Seddio is excited to be a part of the Brandon Eyes team and help provide high quality eye care to patients in the Madison area.
Dr. Seddio grew up in Southern Illinios, in the greater St. Louis area. She attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor's degree in Biology and Psychology in 2007. She then traveled to Memphis, TN to study at the Southern College of optometry, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2011. During her time in optometry school, she was able to go on mission trips to Belarus and Nicaragua to give eye exams to people in need. After graduating, Dr. Seddio returned to St. Louis where she practiced for a few years before relocating to Madison for her husband's job.
Dr. Seddio strives to address each patient's visual and ocular health needs. She keeps her eye on emerging technologies in optometry, always looking for new ways to improve the vision of her patients.
Since moving to the area in late 2013, Dr. Seddio and her husband, Steve, have welcomed two girls, Emilia and Eliana. As a family they enjoy exploring the numerous parks and events in the Madison area!
Angie grew up in a small, southern Wisconsin town with four siblings and moved to Madison for school. The efficiency necessary to raise a family of three boys has carried over into her professional life.
Angie can often be found in the Brandon Eyes "Happy Hut" keeping up with the ever-changing insurance world and administration work. Angie also loves the connection with patients and going frame shopping for that perfect union of frame and face.
