Growing up in Olathe, KS, Dr. Orson attended Pittsburg State University. After completing his Bachelor’s degree, he went to the University of Houston College of Optometry. Graduating with honors in 1994, Dr. Orson came back to the Kansas City area and settled in Lees Summit. A member of the American Optometric Association, the Missouri Optometric Association, and the Optometric Society of Greater Kansas City, his areas of clinical interest include primary medical eye care, glaucoma, and children’s vision.
“I have lived in Lee’s Summit for the past 21 years. After 26 years of marriage to Kati, I have now 4 grown kids. My oldest is married, but I don’t expect grandkids for a while. With more time to myself, I have renewed my interests in woodworking, and playing the guitar. We have 2 Bischon Frise dogs, brothers, who are not the smartest of dogs. I think their parents were also siblings. I could eat Mexican food daily, followed by chocolate chip ice cream. My favorite snack is cheddar cheese Chex mix, and my beverage of choice is Cherry Coke Zero. Though I have only been on 1 cruise, I have the bug and can’t wait to get back out on the big ships. I have a dream to hike the Appalachian Trail with my Eagle scout son.
