At Dr. Torrey J. Carlson & Associates
We Make the Medical, Personal
We do not rush through our appointments and aim to get to know our patients on a personal and human level.
3 THINGS THAT MAKE US STAND OUT
- As independent Doctors of Optometry, we value good ol’ fashioned service. We pride ourselves on being able to personalize the eye care solutions our patients receive.
- We’re open 7 days a week (yes, that includes Sunday) — and with 8 locations serving the East Tennessee area, you don’t need to go far to find us! See our hours and locations here.
- We invest in technology for increased accuracy and results. Because dilation isn’t required, our patients can enjoy enhanced comfort and convenience.
Pediatric Eye Care & Children’s Myopia Control
First and foremost, we believe it's important to begin eye care at a young age. That's why we offer comprehensive eye exams to children starting from 4 to 5 years old. If your child is struggling in school, his or her eyes could be the source of poor grades and disruptive behavior.
Myopia (or nearsightedness) is rising due to the advent of digital technology (near activities) and limited outdoor time. And nearsightedness isn't simply an inconvenience—rapidly progressing myopia can place your child at risk of developing severe eye diseases later in life. Fortunately, myopia management can slow down or even halt your child's myopia progression.
Contacts For Everyone—
Not Just For ‘Perfect’ Eyes
Have you been told that your eyes are irregularly shaped or that you can’t wear contacts? Well, we have great news for you! For the last 17 years, we've been fitting our keratoconus patients with custom-designed scleral lenses, providing unparalleled comfort and crisp vision.

Dry Eye Affects All Ages
The first signs of dry eyes are itchy, scratchy, and watery eyes. This condition is caused by a shortage of tears or a decline in tear quality.
The good news is that at Dr. Torrey J. Carlson & Associates, you can find effective and long-lasting dry eye treatment. Your consultation with your eye doctor will include an evaluation of your symptoms, as well as the quantity and quality of your tears, followed with a customized treatment plan to help you live life to the fullest.
