Richard Sills, OD

Board certified optometrist

Dr. Richard Sills grew up in Huntington Woods, Michigan.  From an early age, Dr. Sills was exposed to the wonderful world of eye care through the observation of his uncle and his cousin, both experienced optometrists.

Dr. Sills fondly remembers one of his favorite patient stories, “I once had a patient who had a retinal detachment but had no symptoms. I was able to refer him to a specialist and his vison was saved.  If I would not have caught this in time, he would be blind today!”

Dr. Sills is a Board Certified Optometric physician.  He completed his Bachelor’s  Degree from Michigan State University and a Doctor of Optometry from Illinois College of Optometry.

Dr. Sills is a member of the American Optometric Association & the Florida Optometric Association.

In April 2021, Dr. Sills joined the Snead Eye group.  He   enjoys all aspects of eye care including dry eye treatment, comprehensive eye health and vision examinations, contact lens fittings, pre and post-operative care of cataract, eyelid, and glaucoma surgeries, as well as ocular disease and eye infection management.  He has been a practicing physician for over 35 years.

Dr. Sills enjoys biking, hiking, river rafting, ballroom dancing, working out at the gym in group classes and watching Detroit sports teams.  He has a wonderful daughter, Shanna, as well as two great stepsons, Michael & David, and a grandson as well.  Fluent in both English and Spanish, Dr. Sills is excited to bring his optical expertise to Snead Eye Group patients regardless of their preferred language.
