Patrick Dollenmayer, OD – Class of 1991 – Notable Alumnus

Patrick Dollenmayer,I graduated from the College of Optometry in 1991 and immediately went to work with Dr. Ted Smiley in a practice in Columbus, Ohio. In 1997, we became business partners and formed Columbus Eyecare Associates, Inc., which has become an extern practice site for students from the college. We have had a few contact lens studies published in Contact Lens Spectrum as well as being progressive in fitting all types of specialty contact lenses.

I married Sherry Hohman, an optometrist from the class of 1994, who now practices as Dr. Sherry Dollenmayer in Marion, OH. We have four great kids: Simone (15), Ben, Alex, and Renee (all 13 years old). My great family allows me to perform in three bands, playing guitar and singing, both of which have always been an important part of my life. One of those bands happens to be Bad Habits, “The Official Eye Docs of Rock,” who perform nationally at most of the major optometric meetings.
