Founded in 1935 by Dr. John L. Montgomery Sr., the first board-certified ophthalmologist in the region, University Eye Specialists has grown to include regionally and nationally respected ophthalmologists and optometrists practicing in six vision health care centers across the region. Our practice includes leading ophthalmic surgeons and subspecialists from around the country and continues to be one of the most respected and comprehensive eye care practices serving patients in East Tennessee and beyond.
Our board-certified physicians serve as clinical faculty at the University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine and are trusted by patients and peers for their expertise and quality outcomes. They are credentialed by the leading area hospitals and participate in most major health insurance plans. While our practice has evolved and expanded over the years, we have never lost sight of our core commitment to serving patients with integrity and compassion.
