Precision Eye Institute is proud to announce Evan Criscio, OD in joining the practice and is seeing patients at both of our locations in New Smyrna Beach (Venetian Bay) and Edgewater. The new optometrist in New Smyrna Beach will be seeing new patients from all over Southeast Volusia County areas.
“We are very excited to have Dr. Criscio join our team,” said Dr. Orest Krajnyk, MD, founder of Precision Eye Institute. Dr. Criscio received a highly ranked clinical and research based education in Chicago. He has a strong passion for providing high quality care with a personal touch. Growing up in nearby Port Orange, Dr. Criscio plans to be very active in the local community in promoting eye care. He specializes in fitting soft contact lenses with astigmatism correction, RGP (rigid gas permeable) lenses, scleral hard contact lenses, dry eye syndrome, and Blephex and Lipiflow treatments for dry eyes.
Dr. Criscio received his Doctor of Optometry from the prestigious Illinois College of Optometry located in Chicago, IL. He knew he wanted to be an optometrist at a young age when his mom took him in for an eye exam. “My mom noticed I was having difficulties reading street signs while driving me around to various places,” said Dr. Criscio. “The first time I walked into an optometrist’s office I was like –wow, look at all these cool instruments!” Dr. Criscio’s passion for eye care stayed with him all throughout high school where he attended Spruce Creek High in neighboring Port Orange and then directly into optometry school where he graduated near the top of his class.
Outside of being a highly enthusiastic optometrist, Dr. Criscio enjoys traveling and eating out at the various restaurants in our area. He is also a coffee connoisseur and enjoys a good cup of Joe!
