Whether you come with a child who needs vision care or on your own, you’ll find us warm, inviting and family-friendly. We are, in fact, a family-owned business, so we put a great deal of stock into providing the same kind of personalized care we would give our own loved ones. That includes fair pricing and flexible payments, as well as one-on-one attention and the best service. It is important to us that from the time you call for an appointment until you leave our office, you feel fully satisfied with the entire office experience.

Our History

Before you entrust us with your eyecare, we understand that it’s important to get to know our history a little bit first. We are happy to introduce ourselves. Erie Optical was founded in 1962 In Painesville, Ohio by Dr. Jacob Waldman. Previous to opening in Painesville, Dr.Waldman had a practice in the city of Cleveland. He was very progressive in his thinking as was one of the first doctors to advertise his services in the newspaper. In 1978 his son Dr. Robert Waldman joined the practice and worked alongside his father until his retirement in 1984.The practice was moved to its present location in Mentor in 1988.
The practice philosophy has always been to provide excellent value and service in a friendly and comfortable environment. With hard work and the support of the community, the practice has been able to thrive for over 50 years. “ We consider what we do to be a privilege, “ says Dr.Waldman.
