Dr. Frank Houser, OD
I grew up in a small Midwest town, Wilber Nebraska, population 1200. I attended Wilber Clatonia Public School. I was active in sports, band, FFA, raising hogs as my project. I am also a member of the Wilber Clatonia Czech Marching Band. We gather yearly to play Polka music for the town's yearly Czech Festival. I graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1975 with a BS in Zoology and a teaching certificate. I then graduated from Southern College of Optometry in 1980. While attending SCO, I was awarded a Navy Scholarship, thus my eight years in the US Navy. I had the opportunity to work at the Navajo reservation, Ft. Defiance, AZ, treating diseases others only read about in books. Also being brought into the Navajo and Hopi culture was a wonderful and earth grounding experience. My time in the US Navy was spent doing eye examinations and training resident Ophthalmologist's in the art of a proper eye examination, After the Navy, I returned to Omaha Nebraska working in a group practice gaining an insight to the business side of a practice. In 1991 I returned to Jacksonville Florida to open, The EYE Doctor. For me, its been a rewarding and enjoyable profession,

Dr. Houser Says:

Patient Satisfaction Surveys use to scare me to death, do I really want to hear anything negative about myself?

Well over the years, I have found they only help to improve yourself, thankfully most are positive and a joy to read.  Even if its a problem with manufacturing of a lens, it all stops with me.  Fix it.

The worse doctor ever! He prescribed eyeglass when i was pregnant! I found out with my OB that when a woman is pregnant their vision changed. What do i know about that? I went to him and that day he saw me he's assistant kinda pushed me to get glasses from them that cost me a lot of money! And was even rude to tell me that i can't get the style of the glasses i wanted! I have now a $500 glasses that sits in my purse and never used! What a waste of money! Never will i recommend this to anyone!
