Felicia Smith is the owner and operator of Dr. Smith's Eye Care. She founded Dr. Smith's Eye Care with the help of her husband, Dr. Daniel Smith. Felicia Smith, a Chicago native, earned a bachelor's degree in Psychology at Xavier University in New Orleans. This is also where she met Dr. Daniel Smith. When the couple moved back to Chicago, so that Dr. Smith may pursue his degree in optometry, they both knew that a private practice was something they were interested in taking on. They decided to open the practice in Louisiana due to the lack of African American presence in optometry practices here. With two active children on her heels, Felicia Smith worked endlessly, trying to grow and improve on Dr. Smith's Eye Care. Now, we are a multi-location practice with a large focus on eye and overall health. She also takes pride in working with young individuals and providing professional opportunities that many would not get the chance to experience otherwise. This office would not be the same without Felicia Smith and her insight and dedication.
