Eye Doctor

David Orson, O.D.

Locations Served: Lee’s Summit

Dr. David Orson was inspired at a young age to enter the field of optometry by his own eye doctor, who helped him achieve comfortable and clear vision for the first time. Dr. Orson completed his BS in Biology at Pittsburg State University, before earning his Doctor of Optometry with Honors from the University of Houston College of Optometry.

In 1994, Dr. Orson settled down in the Lee’s Summit area to provide primary and medical eye care, including glaucoma treatment and diabetes and inflammatory eye disease, to patients of all ages. He loves getting to know his patients and educating them both about their current vision and how their eyes may change over time.

He’s also involved in optometry on the city, state, and national levels, as a member of the American Optometric Association, the Missouri Optometric Association, and the Optometric Society of Greater Kansas City.

“I appreciate all the care and hard work everyone puts in to not only keep myself and my husband safe during these rough times but the extra mile they all go to, to check the status of our eyes and to offer any and all suggestions for improvement and safety. I have never had an optical business work so hard for my good eye health and a physician who cares as much as Dr. Orson. The staff is all great!”
Eye Care Testimonials


“I take my daughter here and Dr. Orson is very knowledgeable and is very thorough with each visit we have had with him. Sam who helps with picking out glasses is very helpful as well. While picking out my daughter’s new pair of glasses her current pair was a little loose. Sam offered to tighten them up and my daughter smiled after putting them back on saying they felt brand new again.”
Eye Care Testimonials


“Highly recommend Dr. Orson. I had 2 little girls (4 and 2) needing their eyes checked. He was so kind, calming, and extremely patient! He discovered a severe double astigmatism in my 2 year old’s eyes. The staff was so helpful in getting her new glasses and the glasses came in very quickly!”
