A team of passionate professionals.

Both of our doctors are board certified, fellowship trained pediatric ophthalmic surgeons specializing in pediatric ophthalmology & strabismus and adult strabismus (eye muscle disorders).

We have two certified orthoptists in our office.  Orthoptists specialize in the evaluation and treatment of patients with disorders of the visual system. They have a unique skillset with an emphasis on binocular vision and eye movements

We serve patients from East Tennessee and beyond.
