Meet Dr. Ryne Wood

An Oran, Missouri, native, Dr. Wood received a pre-med associate’s degree from Three Rivers Community College, Bachelor’s in Biology from Missouri State University. He worked as a clinical technician at Leet EyeCare in 2007 and went on to attend optometry school at the University of Missouri –St. Louis (UMSL) where he graduated with his Doctor of Optometry in 2011.

Getting the opportunity to help patients really drives Dr. Wood. 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 an advanced ocular disease.” His primary focus is posterior segment disease as well as specialty contact lenses. 

Outside his duties at Leet EyeCare, Dr. Wood enjoys spending time with his wife and their newborn son. Time/weather permitting, you may be able to find him in a deer woods or a duck blind with his buddy Snoop Dogg near you!

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