Meet the doctors

Dr. Weber set up practice in Westerville shortly after graduating from Ohio State University College of Optometry. It was his desire to establish a family oriented private practice. While developing his optometric career and raising his family in Westerville, Dr. Weber became involved in community affairs. Active in Westerville Rotary and Jaycees, he helped organize many service projects benefitting area residents. As a member of the Westerville Chamber of Commerce and serving on a Westerville City Commission, he has remained involved in service activities.

After his practice outgrew the original office space, Dr. Weber moved to the current Med West site. There, the practice became Med West Eyecare and new doctors joined the staff. Dr. Weber welcomed Dr. Joan Nerderman to the practice in 1990 and Dr. Deborah Wright in 1996. In addition to practicing in Westerville, Dr. Weber has also served as part time clinical instructor at the OSU College of Optometry. His office is a mentorship site for 4th yr. optometry students serving their clinical externship. Dr. Weber can be contacted at
