EyeXcel has experienced some changes over the last little bit. We have a new look to the front of our building with a brand-new awning to match our sign. We also have a new doctor to welcome to the team, Dr. Heather West!
Dr. West’s journey as an optometrist began early, second grade to be exact. The Knox County vision van identified some inconsistencies in her vision and referred her to a local optometrist. It was through that experience that she gained interest in eye care. Dr. West graduated from Halls High School and Carson Newman University then made the 12 hour move to Davie, FL for optometry school at Nova Southeastern University.
Since graduating in 2009, Dr. West has provided the Knoxville area with compassionate, patient-centered eye care and created a niche for those with vision threatening corneal diseases and injuries with scleral lenses. She is currently completing her fellowship with the Scleral Lens Education Society and is a member of the American Optometric Association and Tennessee Association of Optometric Physicians.
Dr. West has helped transition many of Dr. Patton’s patients to a new experienced provider and is also accepting new patients of her own! Call today to schedule your appointment with Dr. West or stop by and welcome her!
