Ryan Centar, o.d.

Dr. Ryan Centar completed his undergraduate schooling at University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology; he furthered his education by obtaining a Doctorate of Optometry degree from Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University. He has been practicing optometry since 2015.

Dr. Centar became an optometrist because he worked in the field as a tech and it piqued his interests. What he loves most now is that there is an equal balance between patient interaction and medical decision making, which keeps daily life interesting and different.
