How do you know it’s true? Experience and Results. The doctors in our practice have years of experience getting good results for our patients. We want you to have clear, comfortable vision and success with glasses and contacts lenses. If you need more, we can help guide you through choices for Lasik surgery and even eye exercises to improve your eyesight.

We want to eliminate strain to your eyes, help you see better at night, read and use the computer for extended periods of time. There is no need to have a good fitting pair of glasses if the doctor didn’t take the time with you to get the prescription perfect. That is our commitment we make to you.

We check all aspects of eye disease to give you assurance that you have healthy eyes. We have the latest in modern equipment to check for glaucoma, cataracts and eye diseases. We use the latest methods to relieve the common problems like dry and itchy eyes, and redness due to seasonal allergies.

We love children. Our office is very “kids friendly.” We examine children much differently from adults. Not only do we want them to see clearly; we want them to excel in school by having good eyesight. Dr. Brinkley holds a special certification in Vision Development and has committed a good part of his career to eliminating lazy eye and crossed-eyes from our community. For that to come true, children must have early eye exams BEFORE something goes wrong.

Our staff cares about their patients and gives you the attention you deserve. No problem is trivial to us if it is something that is bothersome to you. Tell us. We are listening and we want to help. We hire friendly staff and train them in modern techniques to best assist our patients.

Prices you can afford, with excellent vision care on which you can depend. You will get the best value from us. Value means you can get something nice at a good price or you can choose to get a “budget” item at a great price.


We have 3 convenient locations to serve you. Our Harbison office is open seven (7) days a week.
