At Jackson Eye Associates, in Leland, our optometrists specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as eye diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Our Leland eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
So, if you’re looking for a Leland eye doctor near you, look no further than Jackson Eye Associates!
Meet our eye doctors:
Dr. Jackson is from the small town of Saint Pauls, N.C. A lifelong Tar Heel, he attended Chapel Hill and received his undergrad degree in Business Administration. During his senior year, he decided to pursue optometry as a career. He enjoyed living in the Philadelphia area while earning his doctoral degree from Pennsylvania College of Optometry, but he was eager to return to southeastern N.C. where he belonged.
In the fall of 2003, Dr. Jackson moved to Wilmington and affiliated with Walmart as an independent optometrist. This evolved into a group practice with locations in Monkey Junction, Leland, Porters Neck, and Raleigh.
He is often asked when he plans to open his own private office. Sometimes people are surprised to learn that he has no intention of leaving his current setting. He appreciates the flexibility that his independent group practice offers and enjoys taking care of patients without the worries of selling a product. Being independent from the optical allows him to offer patients his best, unbiased advice. For patients who need correction, he feels that Walmart offers a great value on glasses and contact lenses.
Dr. Jackson loves his chosen career in optometry. He especially likes helping people with contact lenses, which he has worn since the age of 13. He enjoys sports, playing on Masonboro Island, traveling, and spending time with his wife and dog. He also enjoys eating, so he convinces himself that he likes to exercise too.
Dr. Chad Tisdale is an Air Force brat that has spent time all over the world. He received his Doctor of Optometry degree from the prestigious Indiana University School of Optometry. Dr. Tisdale specializes in family and pediatric care with an emphasis on vision and disease care. He is married with 3 children and one very lazy dog. He enjoys spending time with his family, practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, surfing and playing guitar. Dr. Tisdale fluently speaks French and is getting better with his Spanish eye exams.
