Our Story

Orbit Eyecare's story

Thank you for choosing Orbit for all your eye care needs! We’re quite proud of what this company has become and we would like to share our story.

Following successful careers in the United States Army we relocated from Tennessee to New Mexico and started our company as Cottonwood Vision Care on Albuquerque’s Westside in 2003. Our humble beginnings began with a single employee and a few dollars in a savings account. Over the years we grew our business by providing exceptional care and products to our patients, guided by the philosophy of seeing – and making – the world better. We believe we all have a responsibility to make our world a better place in everything we do. It’s how we raise our family, it’s how we run our business, and it’s how we go about our lives in the community.

In 2008 we expanded operations to Los Alamos and Northern New Mexico. In 2011 we opened our second location in Albuquerque, Orbit Eyecare & Optical, in the Northeast Heights, and in 2013 we opened our third Albuquerque location in the North Valley. We credit our success to the wonderful people who work with us, and to our patients who have trusted us to take the best care of their eyes.

As veterans we understand the value of service and sacrifice, and we know that a good business is built on a solid foundation:

  • Hard work
  • Uncompromising values and honesty
  • Providing quality products at a fair price
  • Employees who love their jobs and the clients they serve
  • Giving back to our community

Our promise is to do everything we can to help you see the world better. Our entire staff is committed to this concept in the services we provide to our patients and through our community outreach. Please enjoy your experience with us, and contact our team with any concerns, comments, or just to tell us YOUR story. We would love to hear from you.

Wishing you health, happiness, and a better world!
