Dr. Scott Sedlacek

Dr. Scott’s first job was in 1987 while at Berea High School and was actually working for an eye doctor! That’s when he knew it was his calling. Throughout his four years at Miami University, and then four years at The Ohio State University, he worked in several more Optometry offices gaining experience. Upon finishing school in 1998 he became an Optometrist himself and has truly enjoyed his chosen profession every day since.

Immediately upon beginning his practice he returned to the area where he grew up and began volunteering a tremendous amount of time through several organizations. His goal was to positively benefit the lives of others. His efforts have expanded state-wide where annually he offers career day programs, completes free vision screenings, and presents volunteer educational programs to over 2,500 students in 30 different schools.

Dr. Scott has run several marathons, completed a triathlon, and also a 50K trail race. He enjoys playing soccer, golf, and musical instruments including the guitar. He roots for all Cleveland sports teams, The Buckeyes, and The Chelsea Futbol Club. He also enjoys running 5K races with his daughter Emma, and riding motorcycles and dirt bikes with his son Sam.
