Questions on how we can be of service? Call us at 407.295.1234 . Why? 50 years ago, Orlando wasn’t “greater Orlando”. It was only “great” for the presence of alligators and orange groves. There were no Castles, no Mice, no Movie Studios, no Killer Whales.
The community was formed by its relationships, not its zipcode, and the most effective form of advertising was one family sharing their experience with another. Businesses depended on their service and relationships to expand, not their ability to advertise on the internet.
It was in that time and in that spirit that Orlando Eyecare was born.
And it is in that spirit and in this time, that Orlando Eyecare continues.
Since 1961, Orlando Eyecare has seen many Mega- Optometric Facilities and Eyewear Stores come and go. But Orlando Eyecare has remained. With it’s longevity, history, and unswerving commitment to personal care, it has earned the reputation to bear the name Orlando Eye CARE.
Dr. Devine’s dream was to put the CARE in Eye Care, and spent his life doing just that. The gauntlet has been carefully passed on to Dr. Kirk Smith, and now he leads the team at OEC proudly, to continue the legacy with which it was first established.
If you are looking for an eye care practice that will treat you as family, and cares what you want and need, and will remember your name, then you will be right at home with us!
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT OEC?
We look forward to making you a part of our story.
Give us a call at 407.295.1234 now, to make an appointment!
Dr. Robert “Kirk” Smith is a native Floridian. Growing up in Lake Worth, his family optometrist fit him for both glasses and contact lenses which inspired him to enter the field. Dr. Smith is a proud graduate of Florida State University (go Noles!) and received his Doctorate of Optometry at the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN. While attending optometry school he also “studied” BBQ…. He has mastered grilling almost as well as eye care. After completing a residency in Ocular Disease at the Eye Foundation in Orlando, he decided to remain in Central Florida to raise his family.
In 1996, Dr. Smith joined the Orlando Eyecare team and carries on the tradition of excellence in eye care that Dr. Devine began in 1961. Having served as a president for the Central Florida Society of Optometric Physicians, Dr. Smith remains involved in the optometric community, including serving as an examiner for the Florida State Optometry Exam.
Dr. Smith lives in the downtown Orlando area along with his wife, Kris, a pharmacist, and his two daughters. He and Kris spend much of their free time coaching their daughters’ sports teams and cooking BBQ sandwiches for their friends and family.
