I am Very Hard To Please... Far Exceeded My Expectations
Read More
Having been an office administrator for 25 years, I am very hard to please when it comes to a medical/dental facility. Blountville Family Eyecare far exceeded my expectations. The facility itself is very nicely decorated with up to date furnishings. The staff is unbelievably friendly and over the top helpful. I can’t say enough good things about them. The optometrist are exceptional as well..... very kind and knowledgeable. All the equipment is very current and state of the art. Highly recommend Blountville Family Eyecare!
In-Depth Knowledge of Dry Eye Disease
Read More
Hands down, Dr. Mark Bowers is the best dry eye specialist I have seen. MUCH better than about 7 ophthalmologists in Johnson City. I hate to give too glowing a review, because I want to make sure I can still get in to see him 🙂 I learned more from him in one visit then I did all these ophthalmologists over multiple visits. And even better than him explaining what he finds and what it means, he has ideas for multiple Solutions, and even backup Solutions if that doesn't work. I don't feel like he'll throw up his hands and give up on me and try to refer me to somebody hours away that is boojed up for 5 months, like happened to me in Johnson City. That's the worst thing to hear when you are in excruciating pain. He has enough in-depth knowledge of dry eye and an obvious breadth of experience with it and the confidence needed to deal with this very difficult disease. And is willing to take the time to give you the very best care you can find in the Tri-Cities.
Dr. Pigeon Is GREAT!

I went in grumpy because I was concerned about the change in my vision. The girls at the desk were still courteous. My appointment was with Dr. Pigeon. This was the first time I had met her. Dr. Mark has always taken care of my husband and me. He was out of town and I needed to see someone as soon as possible. I was not disappointed. She was fun and thorough and had me back to seeing again. I enjoyed my visit with Autumn and Dr. Pigeon. Thank you for seeing me so quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why An Annual Eye Exam?

We care about your eye health so we recommend annual eye health exams .  Our eye doctors provide comprehensive eye health evaluations to detect, prevent, and treat eye disease.  

Many people don’t realize the importance of getting an annual eye exam.  Oftentimes, people mistakingly believe they only need to see the eye doctor if they need glasses.  However, this is a dangerous thought process.  Annual eye health exams are an important part of your overall health and well being.  In our office, we examine your eye health every year.  Such diseases as

and many other eye conditions may go undetected without an annual dilated eye exam.  A dilated eye exam can often also detect other conditions that affect your entire body such as high cholesterol and diabetes.   

What about contact lenses?

At Blountville Family Eyecare, we are proud of our contact lens practice.  Patients often tell us that they have been told they can’t wear contact lenses due to astigmatism, fear of touching their eyes, or their need for a bifocal lens.  

While we can’t guarantee that everyone can wear contacts, we certainly want to identify the barriers and try to solve the problems preventing your from wearing contact lenses. 

Visit our contact lens page for information about our contact lens services 

Do you take my insurance?

We accept most health and vision insurance plans at Blountville Family Eyecare.
