A Searcy Eye Doctor You will Be Happy to See

If you have been less than enthusiastic about eye appointments in the past because you didn't like or trust your current eye doctor, you will breathe a sigh of relief around either of our three Searcy optometry experts. Eye care is all in the family for Dr. Patricia Flippin Bell, who is continuing the legacy of over 55 years of optometry, begin by her father. She is a former Treasurer and President of the Arkansas Optometric Association. Arkansas native Dr. Alexandra Reid Meredith is a recent graduate of the Southern College of Optometry, with training in the fitting of specialized contact lenses for hard-to-fit eye conditions. And our third optometrist is Dr. Ryan P Anderson. He is Board Certified by The National Board of Examiners of Optometry, Licensed in the state of California and Arkansas.  Dr. Anderson states “that he tries to think of his patients as a whole and not focus only on the eyes, as a lot of times eye problems can be an indication of something else wrong in the body that needs treatment or investigating.”  All of our optometrists are highly skilled at diagnosing and treating a variety of eye diseases and disorders.
