Dr. Stephen Koos
Dr. Stephen Koos was born in Gyor, Hungary. After having escaped with his parents during the Hungarian revolution in 1956, he settled in Lorain, Ohio where he grew up. Dr. Koos was introduced to optometry at a young age when eyeglasses and contact lenses were prescribed to correct his vision. He knew he wanted to pursue medicine and chose optometry because it allowed him to have a family life as well.
Dr. Koos graduated from Lorain High School. After completing a six year program of undergraduate study and optometry school – Ohio State University and the Ohio State College of Optometry – he earned his Doctor of Optometry degree in 1976.

He is a proud member of the Ohio Optometric Association and American Optometric Association.
