Meet The Optometrist

  • Dr.
    Richard Griffin, OD
    , OD

    Dr. Richard A. Griffin, OD, of Pearle Vision at Oaks Mall, has had an interesting career. After graduating from the University of Florida’s College of Aerospace Sciences and Engineering, he enjoyed 15 years as an aerospace and aerodynamics design engineer—including work on the F-15 and the Space Shuttle. “I primarily designed wings and airfoils, using mathematics to predict how air will behave around a wing or blade on an aircraft,” says Dr. Griffin. After achieving a reputation for excellence in that field, he wanted to apply his design knowledge in a more meaningful way. Dr. Griffin had the vision to see similarities in the movement of air and light and realized that by shaping light could help people see better. He earned a Doctor of Optometry degree from Southern College of Optometry and went on to build a successful eye care practice.
