Dr. Don Shapiro, Optometric Physician, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in eye care.
Dr. Shapiro is an independent optometric physician working in private practice in Miami Beach since 1995. Inspired by his uncle, a dentist with an established practice, he enrolled in pre-medical classes at the State University of New York. After being assigned a low military draft number, Dr. Shapiro changed his major to education to avoid being drafted into the Vietnam War and graduated with Bachelor of Science degrees in psychology and elementary education. He relocated to Florida, teaching for Dade County Schools before launching a catering and wine consulting company with his wife. Dr. Shapiro would spend the next several years traveling to many of the world’s major wine-producing regions to learn and network, and upon returning to the United States, he opened a high-end Italian restaurant and began importing wine.
At the age of 45, Dr. Shapiro became an optometric physician, graduating summa cum laude from the Miami Dade Opticianry School and earning his Doctor of Medicine in 1995 from the optometry school at Southeastern University. He started his career as an optometrist for the flagship For Eyes Optical Boutique and entered private practice in 1995. Dr. Shapiro’s practice specializes in contact lens fittings in addition to comprehensive eye care services, and he continues to enjoy exploring the technological and scientific growth of the specialty.
