Who We Are

“Couldn’t have been happier with my treatment by the staff. They were punctual and courteous. A very pleasant experience, particularly given that I was fitted into the schedule.”

– Mr. Arnold, Greenville, SC

History and Mission


Since our establishment in 1999, we have been committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive family eye care – from routine eye exams to surgery and disease treatment for complex eye conditions.   Our highly trained, board-certified ophthalmologists and optometrists use state-of-the-art technology. We offer two locations in the upstate of SC.  Our Greer office is convenient to the Eastside, Haywood Road, Pelham Road and Greer areas while the Greenville office is near the main Greenville Hospital System campus.

Since its inception, Southern Eye Associates physicians and staff have been committed to serving our community and those in need. Through medical missions trips taken by each physician over the years to caring for those in need right in our community, our purpose is to serve. In 2009, our physicians founded a non-profit, called Surgeons for Sight, with a mission to help disadvantaged people both locally and abroad get the eye care they need to lead productive lives in glorification of God. Our physicians volunteer their time and skills to provide exams and surgeries for those in need. Here in the Upstate we provide vision screenings through partnerships with homeless shelters and agencies. Our physicians also take regular international surgery missions trips.

We have a strong commitment to education and are happy to provide continuing education seminars for regional optometrists and participate in many of the community lecture series and area health fairs.


“Thank you for the exam and time spent with your doctor and all the office staff today. It did not come off as a doctor visit but as a extended family atmosphere.”

– Mr. Stoddard, Greenville, SC

“The climate of this practice is many steps beyond “patient-friendly.” On that first visit, from the first greeting to the check-out, I felt valued and important. I will be happy to share with others my positive experience at Southern Eye Associates!”

– Mrs. Doozan, Greenville, SC
