Our Practice  

Dr. John Phifer has operated a solo practice in Monroe for over 30 years and is consistently voted "Best Optometrist" and "Best Eye Clinic" by the readers of the Enquirer Jounal. He is known for his thoroughness in performing an eye exam. Each patient receives individual care based on their needs - not hurried through as in many large clinics.

Dr. Phifer offers a full range of optometric services. He performs pre-Lasik and post-Lasik examinations as well as follow-up care for cataract surgery. He treats eye injuries in both children and adults. The office is stocked with a wide assortment of eyeglass frames ranging from budget to designer lines with an optical assistant to professionally style your face - no matter what the shape. Skin tones, hair-style and color, and life style are all taken into consideration when selecting glasses. Lens options are explained and recommendations may be made, however, the patient has the final say. Patient satisfaction is very important.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality vision care in both services and materials. We strive to create a professional yet relaxing environment.
