Our History

RVA Eye Care was started in 1986 with the opening of Ryan Vision Center on Patterson Avenue by Pat Ryan, O.D. Dr Robert Rainer opened the second location in 1990 near Libbie Avenue. The third location was in 2000 with the location in Glen Allen on the north side of Richmond. We welcomed Dr. Alex Vakili to our group in 2020 and Seth Gorman joined the group in 2021. All offices joined together as RVA Eye Care Optometrists in 2017.

Our common goal has been a friendly, efficient, up to date practice that shows care and concern for the patient’s visual needs. This goal has driven our growth and will always be the overriding theme of our practice.
