East Oak Optical was founded by Dr. Shaun Small OD in 2009 as a traditional neighborhood family practice in historic Tampa Heights. Dr. Small was born and raised in Florida and has called Tampa home since 1992. He graduated with his BA from the University of South Florida in Tampa in 1996 and from Nova Southeastern University's School of Optometry in Fort Lauderdale in 2002. After graduation Dr. Small moved back to Tampa and worked at a series of optical chain stores patiently waiting for the right opportunity to start his own practice. Finally, the opportunity arose when he stumbled upon an old building in Tampa Heights that was originally A&P grocery store originally built in 1928. After a lot of hard work, this old building was transformed in a modern optical practice and East Oak Optical was born. The rest, as they say, is history.
