MyEyeDr. - A Visionary Approach to Your Vision

In 2001, an optometrist named Dr. Robert Samit and an optical center director named Sue Healey-Downes sat down together to re-invent the eye care and eyewear experience.


Their idea was to make vision care simple and fun.


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: to unify the science of optometry with the art of patient relations so that you can see, look, and be your best you. 


We asked ourselves how we could make the vision care process easier for both eye doctors and patients. Every MyEyeDr. practice is equipped with the latest in vision care technology, staffed with compassionate, knowledgeable optometrists, and stocked with a wide selection of quality eyewear.


Since then, our network of 40 vision care centers in the Washington D.C. area has grown to over 400 vision care centers in the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Midwest and Southeast United States.
