Meet Our Doctors

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing, and treating potential vision problems.

Hello, I'm Dr. David Scott. I graduated in 1975 from the Illinois College of Optometry. I have been living and practicing eye care on the south side of Des Moines for 42 years. I enjoy the people of this community and have built a foundation of trust with our patients. I believe our patients should be treated the way we would take care of our own families. I look forward to meeting you and helping take care of your vision needs.
