About Us

Dr. Floyd Smith

Dr. Floyd Smith

It’s hard to believe that I have been practicing optometry for nearly 30 years and in private practice for 27 of them. I have been so very fortunate to have taken care of so many wonderful patients….from children, adolescents, young teen, adults and seniors.

The personal relationships we have with our patients have allowed us to better care for them over the years. While commitment to technology has always been a component to our success, I would say that excellent care starts with one on one discussion with patients and the proper utilization of that technology.

Experience and perspective helps to treat a wide array of conditions with conventional as well as newer treatment protocols. Our practice continues to invest in today’s technology, strongly believing it will allow for better diagnosis, treatment and education of our patients as we go forward.

Today’s workplace and lifestyles have created greater visual demands than ever before.

Common vision conditions can benefit from the latest innovations in contact lens and spectacle lens technologies. Our goal every day is help improve your visual performance and preserve one of our most precious commodities, your eyesight.

The scope of our general optometric practice will allow for a wide range of vision correction options including Lasik and timely cataract surgery referrals. Our comprehensive eye examination will allow for the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts to mention just a few. Ocular allergies and dry eye issues can be treated effectively so that annoying symptoms will no longer be acceptable.

Our highly trained staff will be happy to make your visit a pleasant one. Every day I practice someone will compliment a staff member in private to me. As gratifying as it is to help someone with my skills as a doctor, I must admit how happy I feel when the staff is recognized for their sense of compassion or good listening skills. Accomodating patients busy schedules by having hours six days is a commitment and a responsibility we will always respect.

My staff and I look forward to meeting you and getting to understand your avocations and individual needs so that we may better help to maximize and preserve your vision.
