Meet Dr. Leet


Dr. Leet grew up in the Park Hills/Flat River, Missouri area. He attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham where he graduated with a Doctorate of Optometry degree in 1984. Upon graduating he partnered with William Wright, OD. He then founded Leet EyeCare in 1987 after acquiring Dr. Wright’s practice in Cape Girardeau. Dr. Leet is a member of the American Optometric Association (AOA), Missouri Optometric Association (MOA) and is a member of Vision Source, a premier network of optometrists.

After practicing for over 30 years Dr. Leet says “I never take for granted the trust our patients give us and I aim to treat each and every patient like family.” He is very thankful for the years of support the patients of Leet EyeCare and the Cape Girardeau – area community have shown the practice.

Dr. Leet and his wife Vicki have three children. Their son Jake is also an optometrist (you can read more about him here), daughter Jenna is an attorney in Jackson, Mississippi and son Ryan is a staff member of Advanced Orthopedic Specialists in Cape Girardeau. They have five wonderful grandchildren.

Outside the office Dr. Leet is an active member of La Croix United Methodist Church and the local chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). He also enjoys spending time with his family, spending time on the lake, golfing and traveling.

If Dr. Leet could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, in what event would he have the best chance to medal?
