Known to most as an Ophthalmologist, Dr. Smith is also a dedicated husband and family man. His family and Ophthalmology origins tie together with his mother, Dr. Judith Perry, who has been a part of the Hinsdale community for over 60 years. In fact, Dr. Smith continues to treat patients he has known since childhood.

Dr. Smith’s vision for the Smith-Perry Eye Center is to provide the highest quality medical and surgical eyecare to patients. “I think we do a great job at individualizing eyecare, giving the time and attention that patients need,” Dr. Smith says, while consistently surpassing the expectations of his patients. He goes above and beyond in his treatment and care for patients; for example, he personally calls his patients the night after surgery to see how they are doing.
