Optometrist | Owner


  • Bachelors of Optometry, Indiana University, 1992
  • Doctor of Optometry, Indiana University School of Optometry, 1995


Dr. Loretta Kay Taylor, one of three ETF Eye Care owners, has been a practicing optometrist since 1996.

Before becoming an ETF owner and optometrist, Dr. Taylor worked as an optometrist in Richmond, Virginia and Cleveland, Ohio. When she and her family decided to make Lafayette their home, Dr. Taylor worked at Williamson Eye Institute—an ophthalmology practice—from 1999 to 2002, when she began working with Dr. Evans and Dr. Finney to open ETF.

Today, Dr. Taylor is a primary care and ocular disease optometrist. As an owner, she also helps maintain day-to-day business operations.

After working for commercial optometry practices, Dr. Taylor enjoys owning and working at a private practice because her “patients are [her] bosses, not a corporate business that really knows nothing about eye care.”

According to Dr. Taylor, “ETF is a unique practice in the sense that it is the size of many commercial practices but it is privately owned and still has a mom-and-pop feel.”
