In 2001, MyEyeDr. opened its first location with a broader mission to re-invent the eye care and eyewear experience.
We asked ourselves how we could make the vision care process easier for both eye doctors and patients:
- Why did the current process of getting new glasses or contacts require separate visits to an eye doctor’s office and an unaffiliated eyewear retailer?
- Why did local eye doctors offer a limited inventory of glasses, and why did eyewear retailers provide limited vision health services?
- Why couldn’t patients experience comprehensive eye care and a wide selection of eyewear options under the same roof?
From this philosophy, MyEyeDr. was born. Our mission is to bring together a focus on eye health with expertise so that you can see, look, and be your best you.
Our purpose is to help patients live their best lives. We are committed to providing patients with a personalized eye care experience by trusted local optometrists. Every MyEyeDr. practice is equipped with the latest in vision care technology, staffed with compassionate, knowledgeable optometrists and eyewear consultants, and stocked with a wide selection of quality eyewear.
Since then, our network of 40 vision care centers in the Washington D.C. metro area has grown to over 500 vision care centers across the United States.
