Eyecare Experiences

We pride ourselves in being more than just the place where you get glasses or contacts. Within the walls of the practice we hear almost daily “My doctor referred me here because of this condition, but I didn’t know why I was being sent to my eye doctor. I had no idea EyeXcel provided this level of care!” No matter the eye problem or what might be happening with your vision, if you are having a problem seeing, we have a desire to make it better. Our mission is to help you see the things that make life more enjoyable!

Pediatric Eye Care

Before we prescribe a child glasses, we give them a thorough eye exam. Our goal is not just to find out the glasses they need now, but to start planning for their future. We want to make sure there are no other eye health concerns, and if there are, start taking steps to counter them. Our professional optometrists have over 40 years of proven experience to take the best care of your kids.

Preventative Eye Care

EyeXcel is a thriving Family Eye Care, Vision Rehabilitation, and Sports Vision practice with two locations in Knoxville, TN. Previously named Drs.

Knoxville’s Best Optometrists and Eye Doctors
Formerly named Drs. Rhyne, Patton & Gilliland

The staff was very friendly and helpful, and Dr. West was very thorough and caring. The office has the very latest in digital testing equipment, which is very reassuring when you are really interested in maintaining the health of your eyes. I highly recommend EyeXcel to anyone looking for an eye care center.

I brought my daughter to this office & we really liked it. The staff was professional, also explained things to us very well. We felt handled with care in a timely fashion & would absolutely recommend EyeXcel to friends and family!

Katherine B.

This was my first eye exam in 20 years and my first pair of glasses ever. Staff was prompt, friendly, and professional. The doctor answered all of my questions and explained x-rays, photos, etc. in great detail. Very happy with the service I received and highly recommend especially if you aren’t experienced with buying eyeglasses.
