Ashley Ritchie knew all her life she wanted to be an eye doctor and is now an optometrist at Chillicothe Eye Care.

CHILLICOTHE – Sometimes adversity sparks a career. It did for Ashley Ritchie. As far as she’s concerned, her life’s path was set when she was just 5 years old.

“I knew from age 5 I wanted to be an eye doctor,” she confirmed. 

That’s because, she continued, “I failed the school vision screening. Basically, the lenses in my eyes weren’t centered properly and had to be surgically removed when I was 6 years old, similar to cataract surgery.”

“I felt like I was constantly going to the eye doctor when I was young,” she added, “and I was truly inspired by my eye doctors. I really wanted to be able to help other people like I’d been helped.”

Today Dr. Ritchie is an optometrist and owner of Chillicothe Eye Care.
