Our History In Columbus Eyecare
Our physicians are proud and passionate about improving the lives of our current patients through their eye care services while building a solid foundation for future generations.
Columbus Ophthalmology Associates is founded (1983)
Dr. Richard G. Orlando opened our first office in Dublin in 1983. Since then, we’ve been a pioneering medical group on the forefront of innovative medical care that dramatically improves the lives of their patients.
COA opens the first outpatient eye surgery facility in Ohio (1996)
Striving to create the most comfortable experience for our patients, The Columbus Eye Surgery Center ensures patients never have to deal with the stress that can sometimes go along with having surgery in a hospital setting.
The Optical Shoppe is opened to provide one-stop eye care (2000)
To meet high demand, COA opened the 10,000 square foot facility, Dublin Optical Shoppe. It was designed to offer full service optical care and products, including designer frames and contact lenses.
Office expansion throughout Greater Columbus & Ohio (2011)
In 2011, our Mt. Carmel East office added testing areas, exam rooms and an Optical Shoppe. Satellite offices in Grove City, Washington Court House and Lima provide specialized medical and surgical eye care.
