From Our Eye Care Family to Yours

Since 1971, Rutland Optometry has been providing exceptional eye care to the community. We’ve watched our community grow into what it is today, and we’ve watched many of our patients grow as well. 

We know the importance of finding an eye doctor that cares about your entire family’s ocular health. The team at Rutland Optometry is always happy to answer any of your questions, ensuring you are completely informed about your eye health.

Meet us in person by booking your next appointment.

Our Story

If you’ve lived in Rutland long, you may be aware that our name used to be Rutland Optical. In 1971, Rutland Optical opened its doors. The little optometry shop changed hands a few times over the years while serving the growing community of Rutland and building up our loyal client base. 

In 1995, Bobbi Story purchased the practice, taking Rutland Optical to greater heights and moving it into a larger location in the Willow Park Plaza (where we are today).

After 30 years, Bobbi passed the torch on to Dr. Parekh, who changed the name and transformed the business into the Rutland Optometry you know today.
