Keiki to Kupuna

Pua and Wayne

We’ve been talking a lot about children’s eye health, but we can’t forget about our parents, grandparents, and elders. At Punzal Vision, we do our best to accommodate each and every patient that comes through our doors. As a lot of you know, our Practice Manager Pua Cobb-Adams and CPO Lehua Watanabe are sisters. Their dad, Wayne Watanabe, is famously known around Kaua’i as being a Kapa’a High School Principal and football coach. He was diagnosed with Alzhemier’s Disease in 2009.


As it progressed, his ability to walk and talk became limited. However, his routine medical exams remain a priority. With cases similar to Uncle Wayne’s, there is still so much Dr. Punzal and his staff can do to provide the most optimal care.


We try to get as much subjective information as possible. We can observe if their eyes are red, watery, or have any inflammation? We test whether they can focus and fixate on an object. We also ask questions to their family members or caregivers for objective information such as: has the patient been rubbing their eyes or do you notice any squinting when he or she is reading or looking into the distance?
