Walk-ins welcome

Jeffrey M. Long, O.D.


Dr. Jeffrey M. Long received his doctorate in optometry from Northeastern State University Oklahoma College of Optometry in 2001, after attending the University of Oklahoma as well as NSU for his undergraduate degree in Vision Science. While in school he was very active. As a third-year student he was awarded the American Optometric Student Association member of the year and in his fourth year he was selected as the only student nationwide to serve with 10 doctors and one lobbyist on the American Optometric Association PAC board of directors.


Upon graduation, he led a medical mission to Mexico and oversaw a dozen optometry students who performed over 800 eye exams and provided eyeglasses to the local people. In his first year after graduation, he was selected and trained to be one of the 20 Gold Standard Examiners across the United States for a National Eye Institute study to help children in the Head Start program. He also became an associate of one of the largest practices in Oklahoma for 10 years where he was Director of Continuing Education. Dr. Long maintained an interest in medical mission work and has been involved in serving the people of Mexico and Ecuador.


In January of 2012, he opened the doors to Dr. Jeff Long’s Children & Family Eye Care with his two sons Colby and Blake. Soon after opening, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization SPECS Missions, Inc. was born. SPECS is an acronym for Servants Providing Eye Care Services. SPECS Missions, Inc. currently offers a free eye exam and a free pair of glasses every day to someone in need in the community. Specs Missions currently works with the general public as well as with many organizations such as Native American Coalition of Tulsa Head Start, Lions Club, Good Samaritan, Youth Services of Tulsa, Cox Radio, local schools and many more. On the global side of SPECS Missions, Dr. Long was awarded a U. S. Patent on March 21, 2017, for his invention that can provide brand new lenses in brand new frames instantly anywhere in the world, even places without electricity.

His latest venture is the opening of the Oklahoma Dry Eye Institute on March 10, 2023. His goal with treating dry eye disease is to compassionately listen and evaluate the specific causes of each person’s condition and customize care for each individual with the most effective and latest technologically advanced treatments.


Dr. Long has also been active in the community where he has served on several boards of directors and participates in numerous fund raising events for various charitable organizations. He is active in his church, still plays soccer, and he currently resides as Chairman of the Board for his local fire department.
