Learn Who We Are

  • Kathy L. Shamblin

    “Serving others is an important part of who I am. It’s also at the very heart of being a healthcare professional in general and, more specifically, an eyecare specialist. I put patients first, because I know that it’s the key to having a positive impact on their vision, the health of their eyes and the quality of their lives. I’m proud of the training I’ve received and the quality of the care I’ve been able to provide to people in need. But each day brings new challenges, and I renew my commitment to doing my best and to helping others every time I meet a new patient.

    “After more than two decades as an optometrist, I have seen time and time again how important it is to practice eyecare that is all about people. I care for people, not just their eyes, and I make a point of treating each person I see as the most important person in the world. I strive to help people achieve their greatest potential, for which their eyesight is essential. And this means focusing not just on their visual acuity but also watching for and managing eye diseases, being mindful of nutrition’s role in their eye health, keeping them informed and enabled and – most of all – always offering my best.”
