Dr. David Dreffer opened his practice in Huron during the summer of 1968. Since that time the following long established and respected, community minded optometrists have merged their practices with Family Eye Care Centers to create a unique comprehensive optometric group. Those mergers include the offices of optometrists: Dr. Oscar Burger, Dr. Joe Kisabeth, Dr. Ramie Dick, Dr. Glenn Bible, and Dr. John Wasylik.
Dr. Gregory Hicks joined the practice in 1990, followed by Dr. Heather Demos in 1999 and Dr. Tiffany Procaccini in 2012
The Doctors and staff of Family Eye Care Centers pride themselves in providing friendly, caring, state of the art eye care for the entire family. This includes all comprehensive vision and eye health care services needed from infancy to geriatrics!
At Family Eye Care Centers, we believe strongly in giving back to the community and caring for the eyes of all those in need. Outreach programs represent an opportunity to show the level of commitment our optometrists have to their community.
Family Eye Care Centers’ doctors participate in several community organizations including Rotary, North Coast Young Professionals, The Ohio State Alumni Association of Erie County, The Huron Chamber of Commerce, and The Clyde Business Professionals Association.
In addition, our doctors participate in InfantSEE, which provides a free comprehensive eye exam to any infant in their first year of life.
In 2011 Family Eye Care Centers, along with Hoya Vision Care, VSP, and Transitions Optical hosted Eyenstein, a mobile vision clinic that provides free comprehensive eye exams and if needed, a pair of glasses to underprivileged youth in our community. We were able to see approximately 40 patients from Sandusky City Schools over two days.
