Wing Eyecare Celebrates 100 Years!



When Dr. Philip A. Wing began examining eyes and prescribing and making glasses in 1914, he could not have foreseen that his family practice would become the largest optometric group practice in the state of Ohio.  Dr. Philip A. Wing was one of the very first to be licensed in Ohio as an optometrist when licensing began.  He was an innovator then, providing the first “One Hour” glasses service ever by transporting his patient’s frames to a downtown lab and back the same day.  Years later, his son, Marvin Wing became the second optometrist in the family, practicing for years with his father.  In the mid-70’s, grandson Philip M. Wing joined the practice as the third generation family doctor.  It was Dr. Philip M. Wing’s vision of a multi-location group practice that initiated the opening of the second office on Colerain Avenue, managed by Dr. Thomas Nagy.  Since then, we have added 10 more Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky offices, serving over 50,000 patients each year.

This new year marks the 100th anniversary of our family practice.  To celebrate our 100th year, Wing Eyecare will be rewarding our patients for their loyalty in helping us grow over the years with 100 drawings to win free annual supplies of contact lenses.  We will also be coordinating through local charitable organizations to donate 100 free eye exams and 100 pair of glasses to the neediest in our community.  Come help us celebrate this important achievement and thank you for your past patronage.

Freestore Foodbank Canned Food Drive




For the 6th consecutive year, Wing Eyecare is partnering with the Freestore Foodbank to collect 800 (or more) cans of food for the hungry in our local community.

And for the first time we would like for any of our patients to get involved as well! Feel free to bring in canned items to be dropped off at any of our 12 locations. 

The drive will last through December 20th and Please no glass containers!  

During this Holiday season, let us remember how fortunate we are and give generously to those who have so little.

Thank you for your generosity!
