Dr. Kelly, Jr. is the 3rd generation of “Kellys” to practice Optometry in Oxford. “My Great grandfather (Dr. Rea) was the town Medical Doctor, making home visits to patients by horse and buggy. My grandfather (Dr. Hollis G. Kelly) was the 13th licensed Optometrist in PA, he graduated from Pennsylvania State College of Optometry, currently Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO), in 1916. My aunt (Grace Kelly) graduated from Optometry School (PCO) in 1927 and practiced with my grandfather in Oxford. My Dad (Dr. Malcolm Kelly, Sr.) graduated from Optometry School (PCO) in 1942. After WWII he settled back in Oxford to practice Optometry with my grandfather. I, Dr. Kelly, Jr., also graduated from Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 1975 and moved back to Oxford and the family practice.”
Early in his career Dr. Kelly, Jr. was the secretary of the Chester/Delaware County Optometric Society. He is a long standing member of both the Pennsylvania Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association.
Dr. Kelly practices beyond "routine" eye care during his Medical Eye Health Examinations by working closely with area physicians and opthalmologists for the benefit of his patient's health needs. Dr. Kelly is committed to the health of his patients by keeping up on the most advanced technology and equipment in eye care. Not only does he attend many hours of continuing education a year, but requires he staff to do the same.
When not in the office, Dr. Kelly’s passion is photography. Many of his photos are on display in the office. Now that his two daughters, Katie and Laura, are grown Dr. Kelly and his wife, Penny, enjoy traveling to visit them.
