DR. MARC SCHMITT | optometrist/movie producer
Dr. Schmitt started his medical career as a clinical laboratory scientist. This foundation of performing and interpreting complex medical testing helped form his unique approach to healthcare. It also helped him realize that he preferred the company of people over test tubes. Since entering the eye care field, Dr. Schmitt has acquired experience in a variety of clinical settings including a corneal transplant and cataract surgical center, a specialty contact lens practice, a pediatric eye care clinic, and multiple Lasik surgery centers.
As a way of giving back to the Portland community, Dr. Schmitt created the SHARE SITE initiative. SHARE SITE improves eyesight for Portlanders in need by providing them with free exams and glasses. He is also a strong advocate of pediatric vision exams along with proactive and natural approaches to eye health. Opting for modern technology in his practice has allowed for a more thorough and pain-free exam experience. Above all, Dr. Schmitt's passion is helping his patients and the NW community maintain healthy, clear vision by actively listening to and carefully educating those under his care. His warmth, friendliness, and genuine concern are evident from the moment he walks through the door.
At home, Dr. Schmitt is a loving husband and father of three. He loves making his two year-old son laugh and his newborn daughter smile. He also enjoys snow skiing, amateur movie production, playing with his dogs, and dining at one of Portland’s many incredible restaurants with his wife, Brooke.
