Welcome to the official website of Searcy Eye Care and Vision Therapy Center. Here, you will find a one-stop shop for primary eye care in Searcy, AR for you and your family. Dr. Patricia Flippin Bell, Dr. Alexandra Meredith and Dr. Ryan Anderson provide expert optometry services for patients of all ages, from routine eye exams to treatment of serious eye diseases and disorders. We look forward to giving you the unique combination of personal attention and professional care on which we have built our practice and reputation.

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 any of our three Searcy optometric experts. Eye care is in the family for Dr. Patricia Flippin Bell, who is continuing the legacy of over 55 years of optometry, beginning with her father. She is a former Treasurer and President of the Arkansas Optometric Association. 

Arkansas native, Dr. Alexandra Meredith is a graduate of the Southern College of Optometry, with training in the fitting of specialized contact lenses for hard-to-fit eye conditions. Finally, 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 more 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. 

A Full Menu of Eye Care Services

At Searcy Eye Care and Vision Therapy Center, we take our commitment as a primary eye care provider very seriously.
