Richard M. Davis, MD

Dr. Richard M. Davis has been an integral part of the Fort Myers community for over three decades. In 1975, Dr. Davis opened South Fort Myers Eye Care and Cataract Center in a thriving part of South Fort Myers and the rest, as they say, is history. His soft spoken demeanor and the ability to relate to his patients in a calm and caring manner has made Dr. Davis one of the most successful ophthalmologists in Southwest Florida.


Dr. Davis is a graduate of Adelphi University, B.A. Magna Cum Laude and a graduate of New York Medical College, including a surgical internship. He completed his ophthalmology residency at the University of California, Davis, CA. Society memberships include the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Florida Society of Ophthalmology, American Medical Association, Florida Medical Association, Lee County Medical Society, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society.


In January 2010, Snead Eye Group acquired South Fort Myers Eye Care and Cataract Center. As a Medical Ophthalmologist, Dr. Davis continues to see patients for annual eye exams and specialty care, including glaucoma management, in the Fort Myers office. He enjoys caring for those patients he has seen for years. Snead Eye Group is very pleased to have Dr. Richard Davis as an associate physician and colleague.


In his spare time, Dr. Davis loves to travel with his wife of more than 45 years, scuba dive, and collect electric trains.
