For nearly three decades, Davidson Eye Associates has provided comprehensive eye care to residents of Davidson County and surrounding counties and has redefined the standards of eye care in Davidson County. We were among the first physicians in this area to perform laser surgery, and have maintained a special interest in the use of laser technology for treatment of such diseases as glaucoma, retinal problems, secondary cataracts, and diabetic eye disease.

Over the years, we have expanded our services to provide the finest technology in eye care. We offer the latest techniques of microsurgery including same-day "no-stitch" cataract surgery. Nearly all surgical cases are performed on an outpatient basis and most procedures, including laser work are performed in our office surgical suite.

Our physicians and staff offer complete eye care ranging from routine exams, glasses and contact lenses, to eye infections, injuries, and complicated diseases. We also work closely with a variety of other medical specialists to provide you with complete medical and surgical eye care.
