We invite you to refer your friends and family to our eye care office.

Introducing The Team

Dr. Andrew "Andy" Tran, OD

"Every patient should be treated as if they were a member of our family," a sacred principle that Dr. Sam Williams has entrusted in me and as such, I will continue to provide the friendly, quality and respectful care you have come to expect from this office over the years.

A Florida native, I grew up in Tampa where much of my family still resides. My wife and I have two young children and a sweet labradoodle named Charlie. I currently reside just outside the north Orlando area. Aside from work and family, I enjoy archery, playing guitar, working out, and sipping fine whiskey. I am a proud fan and supporter of the U of F Gators. Go Gators!!

Dr. Donald "Chris" Ragan, OD

I am committed to giving the latest information and best care to every patient that walks through our doors at The Eyecare Center of Leesburg . If a patient walks out of our doors and hasn’t learned something new about their eyes or their overall health, I’m not doing my job. Come visit us at Eyecare Center of Leesburg for the best service and most thorough eye exam you’ve ever had.
