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 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 an advanced ocular disease.”

Outside his duties at Leet EyeCare, Dr. Wood is a member of the Cape Girardeau Jaycees and both the Cape Girardeau and Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce. For fun, he enjoys golfing and also hunting with his #1 pup Snoop Dogg. His girlfriend is an animal rescuer and together they have a total of 6 dogs which 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?
