“I provide personal attention to you and your problems, while using contemporary technology in a Family-Friendly Eye Health and Vision Care office.”
Dr. Douglas Smith, OD

I come to work excited every day by having kept my skills, office techology and enthusiasm at the leading edge of vision care. It is my goal to start every day asking: “Who are we going to help today?”When you come to Bison Vision Center, I will listen to you, personally spend time with you to evaluate the problems you present. Together we will decide on the best course of treatment to assure you the best eyesight and healthiest eyes possible. If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, have had a stroke, experience double vision, or a visual field loss, I determine how those problems are affecting your daily activities, visual perception, balance, eye fatigue and visual comfort..
