Meet Dr. Wood

An Oran, Missouri, native, Dr. Wood received a pre-med associate’s degree from Three Rivers Community College, Bachelor’s in Biology from Southeast Missouri State University, and Doctor of Optometry from the University of Missouri – St. Louis (UMSL). Starting as an optician in 2007, he went on to attend optometry school and joined Leet EyeCare as a physician in 2011.

Getting the opportunity to help patients really drives Dr. Wood. He says he enjoys “interacting with people and helping them improve their quality of life through their visual needs. Whether it’s a child’s first pair of glasses or management of advanced ocular disease.”

Outside his duties at Leet EyeCare, Dr. Wood is a member of the Cape Girardeau Jaycees. For fun, he likes to golf and go hunting with his #1 pup Snoop Dogg. His girlfriend is an animal rescuer, so they also have 5 additional dogs who keep things interesting!

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