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. Carolyn Bryan is a 2018 graduate of the University of Incarnate Word- Rosenberg School of Optometry, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She was a member of Beta Sigma Kappa Optometric honor society and currently is a member of the American Optometric Society and the North Carolina Optometric Society. She completed externships studying ocular disease, contact lenses, pre- and post-operative care as well as primary optometric care. She earned her undergraduate degree at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC where she was also a student athlete on the soccer team with her sister.
Dr Bryan was born and raised in Wilmington, NC where she now lives with her growing family. She enjoys being outdoors, spending time with family and friends, and being at the beach.
