Volunteer Spotlight

Lindley Smith, MD

Dr. Lindley Smith has been one of the most prominent Ophthalmologists in Richmond for more than 40 years. He has been a volunteer at the CrossOver Cowardin clinic for more than 30 years and started seeing his first CrossOver patients in his private practice at no charge.

Dr. Smith is a strong community advocate working for the underserved. Today, Dr. Smith brings his quick wit and gentle manner to the Cowardin clinic, brightening the day of the patient and the staff. Staff and volunteers regularly stop by the eye clinic to say hello.

When he is not volunteering his time, Dr. Smith serves on the Boards of both the VMFA and the Smithsonian.
