In 2001, MyEyeDr. opened its first location with a broader mission to re-invent the eye care and eyewear experience.
Originally the purpose was to help patients live their best lives, and that purpose lives on today. MyEyeDr. is committed to providing patients a personalized eye care experience by trusted local optometrists. A great selection of designer, luxury, and budget frames, a commitment to maximizing insurance benefits, and ensuring the latest in lens solutions are promises that our patients count on.
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 bring together a focus on eye health with the expertise 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 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.
