The Eye Clinic, which is based in Jackson, has five ophthalmologists and two optometrists. We also have a clinic in Selmer, and we see patients in Somerville.
When Dr. Ben House started his practice in August 1963, he was the only ophthalmologist in Jackson. He had one receptionist as his office staff, and he was on call 24 hours a day.
Since then, the Eye Clinic has seen nearly 1 million patients. It has moved twice from its original location on Forest Avenue, and has been at its current location, 668 Skyline Drive, for several decades.
Dr. House was busy from the first day he opened the practice. Relief first came from Dr. James Price, who joined the practice in 1969. Dr. Bruce Herron and Dr. Art Woods joined in 1976.
Dr. House, Dr. Price, Dr. Herron and Dr. Woods have all retired. Carrying on the Eye Clinic’s commitment to quality patient care are Dr. Sean Neel, Dr. Mark Bateman, Dr. Jason Sullivan, Dr. Hilary Grissom and Dr. Stephen Hammond Jr. Optometrist Molly Lee works at the clinic in Jackson, while optometrist James Smith sees patients in Selmer.
