Dr. Ditto has practiced in Nicholasville, KY, since 1978. Along with Dr. Musick, he founded the current Nicholasville office of Kentucky Eye Institute known as Drs. Ditto & Musick Eye Care Center, with its full-service retail optical dispensary, Jessamine Optical.

While providing full-scope optometric care to all ages, Dr. Ditto's particular interests are in the areas of contact lenses, co-management of LASIK or other refractive surgery, co-management of cataract surgery, and the treatment of acute eye conditions and anterior segment eye disease. Dr. Ditto has extensive experience and expertise in the correction of all types of refractive errors with rigid gas permeable or soft contact lenses, including hard-to-fit cases, and correcting for presbyopia with monovision or multifocal lens designs.
