Born in Ashtabula, Ohio, Dr. Orlando received his Bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Gannon University in Erie, Pennsylvania and his medical degree from The Ohio State University in 1979. He completed his residency training at The Ohio State University Medical Center in 1983 and founded Columbus Ophthalmology Associates in Dublin, Ohio the same year.

Dr. Orlando’s contributions to ophthalmic surgery have earned him the reputation of being a technological leader and true innovator. His area of expertise is in small incision cataract surgery and his use of the latest intra-ocular lenses (IOLs), including the Symfony, Crystalens and Toric IOLs. Dr. Orlando has participated in FDA clinical studies on surgical devices and has authored scientific and clinical articles, books, and videos.

Dr. Orlando is also a bit of a renaissance man. Complementing his highly scientific side is his vibrant, creative mind. His skilled surgical hands have been painting beautiful scenes for decades, and many examples of his work hang in our clinics. Hundreds of his paintings have been sold over the years with all contributions going to various charities. Additionally, Dr. Orlando publishes an annual calendar of his paintings. The most recent edition benefited Nationwide Children’s Hospital, American troops overseas, and local families in need.

Dr. Orlando and his wife Cindy, have two married daughters and one granddaughter.
