Dr. Schultze grew up in the Grandville-Jenison area. He attended Calvin College and subsequently the University of Houston where he received a Bachelor of Science degree and a Doctor of Optometry degree. After graduation he returned to the West Michigan area and practiced in Manistee and Carson City before opening a new practice in Jenison. In 1982 the practice moved into its current facility at 597 Baldwin Street.

Dr. Schultze has held numerous positions in the West Michigan Optometric Association and the Michigan Optometric Association. He is a past recipient of the Michigan Optometric Keyperson Award. He also was honored with the Associations Legislative Achievement Award for his effort to help secure legislation that enables a patients' insurance to cover their medical eyecare needs.

In the era of anonymous "big box" business, Dr. Schultze has always recognized the value of having a family eye doctor whom his patients can trust and rely. He is proud to have provided this kind of care to his patients in the greater Jenison area for over thirty years. With the addition of Dr. Smith to the practice, who also mirrors those same values, he looks forward to providing family eyecare to the greater Jenison area for years to come.

Dr. Smith received his BA in Visual Science from Ferris State University and his Doctor of Optometry degree from the Michigan College of Optometry. Upon his completion of his degrees, he entered the US Navy and soon became recognized for his clinical skills and his love for patients. He was later appointed to be the Clinical Director of Externs, overseeing the clinical training of several student externs from two separate colleges of optometry. For his excellence in clinical performance and leadership accomplishments, he was also awarded the Navy's prestigious Commendation Medal. After being honorably released from the Navy, Dr. Smith has set his sights on private practice. He has joined Lifetime Eyecare in June of 2005 and is excited to be working with Dr. Schultze as well as our great staff!
