About Dr. Boone

General Optometry

Dr. Eric Boone grew up in Lake City, Florida and graduated from Columbia High School in 1992. He earned his undergraduate degree from Florida State University in Tallahasee, Florida 1996. He obtained his Doctor of Optometry degree from Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 2004. Dr. Boone currently lives in Lake City with his wife and 2 children. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, boating, and following Florida State athletics.

While attending FSU in 1995, he got his first hands-on experience in the optometric field while working as an optometric technician with Dr. Mohr and Associates at VisionWorks for over 2 years. In 1997 he moved to Atlanta, Georgia where he was employed by Emory Vision Correction Center as a refractive surgical technician in the field of ophthalmology for 3 years. He was chosen by staff and doctors to receive the Best Employee Award in 1998 for his hard work and dedication.

In 2000, he decided to further his education and moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to attend the Pennsylvania College of Optometry to earn his optometric degree. He interned at the Pediatric and Binocular Clinic in The Eye Institute during the summer of 2003, where he gained knowledge and experience with pediatric examinations and visual therapy. He also interned at the Feinbloom Low Vision Rehab Center in The Eye Institute, providing low vision evaluations and training with low vision devices.

Dr. Boone moved back to Lake City in the fall of 2003 and began his 6 month externship at the Lake City Veterans Medical Center's eye clinic. He gained valuable experience with ocular disease and hospital based medicine at the VA.

His last externship, at Family Focus Eye Care, gave him private practice experience. Dr. Boone became a full-time employee at Family Focus Eye Care as a staff optometrist in August 2004, and continues in that same position today at Columbia Eye Associates, the successor to Family Focus. He enjoys his patients and takes pride in offering the best, most efficient, comprehensive eye care to solve his patient's eye care needs so necessary to their quality of life.
