Come meet our amazing team: Our dedicated and tireless staff are what makes Family Eyecare the go-to clinic for an optometrist and eyewear in Millersburg OH, and the surrounding areas.
Greeting you at the front desk with a smile!
In today’s environment of ever changing technology, it is simply impossible to run an optometric practice that remains on the forefront of our profession without outstanding well trained people. Our goal at Family Eyecare as stated in our mission statement is to provide the latest eye care technology and professional services. This means our staff must be trained and constantly retrained in new procedures, equipment, and products as technology evolves. Our staff is the best because they work at it. They are the backbone of our practice. They are extremely competent at what they do and just as important, they genuinely care about our patients. You probably know many of them by name and we are proud of every one of them!
With almost 75 years of combined experience, we can take care of all your family eye care needs.
