REVIEWS OF Donelson Eye Care IN Tennessee

James Frank

My appointment was most pleasant. I had a short wait time & was welcomed pleasantly to the exam room. The assistant was pleasant & thorough. The Dr. did an excellent exam. Our conversation was quite enjoyable. I felt welcomed & well treated. I really enjoy my visits to Donelson Eyecare. Thanks.

Xaviera King

It’s bitter sweet for me because I truly care for Amy, but there are two front desk agents who are extremely rude and insensitive to the position they chose for employment. However, Amy and Dr. Ben are wonderful people!

Taylere Blanc

Dr. Susan was wonderful, very personable and knowledgeable, her staff is very sweet as well. She is probably the best optometrist that I've ever seen. Will definitely be recommending her to friends moving forward.

Jamie Eick-Wheeler

As a Lupus patient, who is a recent transfer to Nashville, with specific issues related to my disease, I am happier with the care that I have received from Donelson Eye Care and Dr Amy Waymire than anywhere else I have been in three states. I consider myself lucky to have found them and recommend the Dr's and staff to all I can. They are kind, informative and very considerate of their patients needs. Jamie Wheeler Old Hickory TN


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place! Everyone here is so friendly! Dr. Kegarise has taken care of my whole family from eye infections to routine exams and I would not trust my eye care to anyone else. The staff makes it fun and keeps it professional at the same time.

Emily Anne Brooks

I came into Nashville for business and had a difficult situation- I needed new contacts and needed somewhere very close to go as I have an extremely tight schedule. I called Donelson Eye Care and explained my situation. WIthout going into personal detail, I must say that the front desk staff was extremely positive, friendly, and helpful. They went out of their way to fix a problem I needed fixed before I could even begin my work day. Five stars!

Sherrie Maloy

Great staff, very friendly. Patient and kid friendly. Love this place!

Lety Perez

I absolutely LOVE Dr. Kegaris and her warm, friendly and professional staff. The ARE - THE BEST OF THE BEST! And, thank you for the coffee!

Patricia Dunn

This was the best of the best doctors I have ever experienced in eye care. They are thorough, warm and kind and the doctors as well as staff have a passion for what they do and how they connect with each individual patient. I did a thorough research of at least two hours and their ratings did not let me down. 5 stars and they didn't disappoint. The best and I'm blessed to have found them! I am from MA and we have great doctors across the board. This group is as good or maybe better! Pat

Yvonne Bender

The staff is always pleasant. The physicians were professional and explained everything about a procedure that I was having.

Aussie Anon

Anyone in search of an eye doctor, please see Dr. Amy Waymire! I came into the office early this week due to an emergent eye infection and I was quickly squeezed into Dr Amy Waymire's schedule. I couldn't have asked for a more professional, compassionate, informative Doctor than her. She explained everything to me at every step of the eye examination, and in terms that I understood. In all my years of encountering medical professionals, no one has stood out more than Dr Amy Waymire with regards to 'bedside manner'. She really impressed me and helped calm my nerves so much. She felt like a Doctor that truly cared, and saw you as a person, versus a patient. Exceptional Doctor, the very best of the best - be sure to request for Dr Amy Waymire specifically!

Johnny Stephens

The receptionists are noteworthy. They are very friendly, personable and professional. I have been a patient of Dr Harris for several years. I had not seen him since he moved to this office. My visit accomplished all I had hoped for.

raymond garrison

Great staff, very professional, top quality.

Dewayne Evans

I must say I've been twice so far, and the Drs are very nice and professional. I'm definitely coming back, everything was explained very thoroughly and with a smile! They do a great job!!!!!!

Taylor Cassel Whitten

I had a delightful first visit at Donelson Eye Care. The staff was just the right amount of friendly, and the office itself was very pleasant, too. 10/10, everything ya need!

Betty Garrett

Everyone is very friendly

Kate Beaty

The office is run very efficiently and everyone there is very friendly and helpful.

Amy Gilbert

I had a wonderful experience. The entire appointment was fluid and I felt welcomed. I will be back!

Joe Barbieri

We have been "seeing" them for years. Everyone there is very professional yet friendly. Give them a try, you'll like them too.

Vanessa Jones

Everyone was very friendly and professional. They were not pushy with the sales of eyeglasses nor did they make you feel rushed. I am pleased with the move of Dr. Harris.

Mika Brummel

Friendly staff, Dr and assistant were both attentive and thorough

Kelsey Robinson

Very professional, polite and timely.

Amy Ayers

Doctors and staff are awesome and answer your questions in terms you understand.

Ronny McMackins

This was my first visit and the staff could not have been more pleasurable. I have not received my new glasses yet but the test and procedures was much more than I have ever received before. Everything was explained in depth and I really appreciate that. I'm looking forward to getting my new glasses.

Megan Cauble

Very thorough and the female who helped do the screening was wonderful!

Ashley Schwartau

They were so funny and personable and friendly. Made me comfortable and explained every process to me. Very cool people. They didn't pressure me into buying glasses from them. I'm glad I've found an eye doctor I like and trust. Will go to them for many years!!

Julie Cunningham

The dr was very informative took time to explain everything. Staff very friendly and helpful

Bri Stowers

Very sweet crew! Easy going and they walk/talk you through everything. Very new patient friendly. Didn't try to pressure me into a purchase, just explained my options. Gave me contact prices so I can shop. I recommend the Optomap if you don't like dilation. It's not covered by insurance, but they gave me the price up front.

michael clesson

Friendly, fun environment. Great service

Adam Graves

Quick and easy. Great customer service.

Chris Guindin

Great service, very helpful, has a pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended

Laura Golub

I had a great experience at Donelson Eye Care. My appointment was with Amy Waymire, and she was fantastic! She asked questions to get to know me and my eyecare needs; and she also did a wonderful job explaining the results of my exam to me.

Judy Davis

The clinic worked me in on the day I called and I got excellent care and help for my eye issue.

Alon Diamant-Cohen

Love these guys, professional service very knowledgeable staff and all of the latest and greatest tech in eyecare. I rarely wait more than a few minutes to be seen, and there coffee in the waiting room to kill that little bit of time. Dr Binghams suggestions are always helpful and I'm glad to have him and this practice as my eyecare provider.

Monique Burton

Great thorough and fast service, listen to what I wanted and delivered.

Jacki Reed

Best eye experience ever, thank you so much for making my eyes feel better

Steve Burney

The group at Donelson Eye Care made me feel very comfortable about the best solution for my eye care maintenance.

Calvin A. Hart

I have been a patient of Dr Harris for around 10 years. He is very thorough and his staff is helpful and patient.

Joe Reitan,

I am driving through on a trip and I lost a contact. I called up the clinic and they were happy to help. I was able to get my script sent over from my primary office and they were able to find me a viable option from their trial contacts to get me through until I got back home in 10 days. They have a bunch of optometrists and a medical doctor on staff. Their front desk staff is also incredible to work with

Andrew Bailey

Excellent place and a very caring and friendly staff!

Bradley Stuckey

I'm a sucker for knowledge. I've never felt like I understood so much about my eye exam as I did after this one was over. Your ability to teach something to someone shows your depth of understanding of the subject. Really appreciate! Will definitely recommend to others.

Lisa Farney

I had the pleasure of see Dr. Michael Bingham today. I take medication that may effect the eyes. So he was so a thorough and explained more then I've ever known. They were all so very kind and amazingly accommodating, I will refer anyone to this clinic.

Dawn Coulter

I would rate my experience High. Every employee was kind and competent. The office is very nice and comfortable. Special thanks to Scott who helped me in an emotional moment with kindness and understanding. God bless you all. Dawn

Kristie Beshears

Everyone is so friendly and the office is very clean! Great service each time!

Terrie Wagner

My experience was very professional. My options were explained to me and my decisions were honored. I also got answers to a problem I've had for years but no other ophthalmologist could explain to me. The optician was equally professional and helped me to pick out a new pair of glasses and order lenses that meet my needs.

Keith Martin

I've been going to DEC for years and every time is a pleasant experience. The staff is very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend DEC for your vision care.

Jessica White

I have been a patient with Donelson Eye Care for about 5 years now. I have ordered contact lenses and eyeglasses through them and have never had anything less than perfect service. Also, I've never had to wait longer than a couple of minutes to get called back from the waiting room for an exam, which is a big plus. Love them!

Laura Ward

Dr. Amy Waymire and the staff at Donelson Eye Care are amazing! They are nice, caring and efficient, and actually made my appointment enjoyable! I have recommended them to many of my friends.

Craig Robinett

Dr. Amy Waymire is very thorough and caring. She takes the time to listen and then explain what's going on in great detail.

rh p

I had a great experience! Everybody was friendly, knowledgeable and very professional.

Randall Fryer

I’ve been going here for 15+ years. Everyone is great and I will continue to use their services for years to come.

Liana Berkley

This place is outragrously expensive. They helped me pick out glasses and got me really excited to only find out they were $800, with my insurance. Terrible! Especially when I can order the same ones online for $100. My eye doctor from Illinois charged about $75 for the entire visit + glasses + contacts (without insurance!). This goes to show you how much they overcharge everything. They do push the 3d eye mapping, it really isn't necessary and costs extra if your insurance doesn't cover it. They don't warn you when your insurance doesn't cover it either. A week ago, I got a call from them saying I had an appointment the next day and I hadn't even scheduled an appointment. I have actually moved out of the area and didn't even have the need to have an appointment there. This week, I got a bill in the mail with no explanation of what it was for. When I called, they said it was for a co-pay they "failed to receive" for my 2014 appointment. I asked why this was the first time I was hearing about it and they said, "Sorry... you still owe the co-pay." Supposedly the $72 I gave them last year wasn't good enough. This place just makes me want to cry. Stop taking money from me! Stop waiting until a year goes by to bill me for some small expense you should've billed me for when I was there that day with all the other fees you charged me for!

Tricia Darity

Donelson eye care dropped the dang ball on me. I've gone to them since 2012 over some issues another eye dr told me I had. When it got to the point I needed to take care of it I made an appointment to get the measurements so surgery could be planned. During that appointment DEC tells me they didnt take my insurance. Also during that appointment they were unable to do any kind of corrections to my vision. I then found Nashville eye associates. Dr William's not only took care of the dilation problem he changed my lens took out some cataracts and now I have 20/20 vision with no glasses. If your reading this and your a patient of DEC (donelson eye care) my advise is FIND ANOTHER PLACE DEC DONT CARE ABOUT YOUR EYES ONLY MONEY.....ITS A SAD THING

Troy Fisher

Wonderful staff and The doctors explain everything clearly. Nice selection of frames. I definitely would recommend Donelson Eye Care.

Dennise Marshall

The eye doctors at Donelson Eyecare excellent. They definitely know how to take care of dry eye. I've been going there for about 3 years and they have helped my dry eye. Would recommend Donelson Eyecare

Jamie Mac

**Attention Special Needs Parents** I recently took my Autistic son to see Dr. Waymire and let me just say.. WOW! I was extremely impressed by how kind and patient she was with him. He had so much anxiety about going to the eye doctor due to a really bad experience elsewhere, but by the end of the appointment he was all smiles! I could tell she had plenty of experience with special needs kids and that is not an easy find for parents like myself. She moved at his pace and never forced him to do any testing he wasn't comfortable with. She is also very thorough and explains everything she is doing as she does it. I can't even begin to describe what it means to have my son be so comfortable in her office. She's amazing and I highly recommend her to anyone with special needs children.

Kiesha Cornell

I have seen Dr. Waymire a few times for Chronic Dry Eye. I didn’t know that dry eye was actually a thing, I just knew that my eyes were red and burning daily. After a few tests, Dr. Waymire diagnosed my symptoms and explained this condition to me. She was very informative and patient with me, as I had a lot of questions and concerns. The cost was more than I anticipated but I did take in to consideration that I was seeing a specialist. As a 33 yr old female, this was not the diagnosis I would have liked to have because it can’t be cured, makes wearing eye makeup very difficult and interrupts many of my daily activities. But I do have hopes that Dr. Waymire will help me get my eyes to a comfortable place. She and her Nurse, Rachel are great and I would highly recommend them to anyone suffering with Dry Eye.

Brooke Wilson

Very friendly staff and doctors and they offer a very individualized experience.

Amanda Simone

Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful, and make the experience really easy and smooth.

Karen Curry

Always a pleasant experience. Staff is helpful and pleasant.

Sonja Bryant

I've gone to Dr. Harris for years. I like the new location!

Linda Carter

Excellent service, good Dr.’s, good technicians, exceptionally friendly service. Can’t ask for more.

Grayson Kilov

Friendly, fast, and efficient! Definitely would recommend!

Stirling Snow

Concerned diligence, generosity, friendliness, no-pressure sales - it was an absolute pleasure on all fronts. Very glad I found them.

Erinn Parker

The facility is so nice it is new, clean, and pleasant and the ladies at the desk were so nice to my daughter and her father while i was being seen they gave us water it was so hot outside!!! and let her get a surprise from there treasure chest!!!

Krishenna Jackson

I have been a patient with Donelson Eye Care for about six years now and have always felt that they had my best interest in mind when it pertains to my eye health. Preventative care is also extremely important, and they keep you up-to-date. I highly recommend Donelson Eye Care.

Avelino Alicea

Friendly staff. The doctors take good care of you and your eyes.

Mighty Rasing

Dr. Amy was thorough in my eye exam and explained to me all that I needed to know about the health of my eyes. Their location is very convenient and just beside the K-Mart along Donelson Pike. Will recommend them to family and friends.

Amy Phillips

Dr. Bingham at Donelson Eye Care is incredible! The staff is always friendly and takes care of all my needs in a timely manner.

Dantonio Pointer

They are very friendly and helpful. Melloni helped me pick out a great pair of frames and was very patient. Amazing place to go. Dr Harris was great as well

Kate Bruno

Very nice new office and nice staff. Wait time for my appointment was longer than expected

Kim Halverson

I've been coming to this office for 5 years. My eyes are not the norm and they work with me diligently to make everything right. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you Donelson Eye!!

veronica bouffanie

Great friendly staff. Knowledgeable. Office was very clean and inviting.

Brandon Turner

From the first step in the door, everyone on this team was helpful. I've been trying many places eye care places in Nashville since I moved here in 2005 and nowhere seemed to have the costumer service I've been seeking. Everyone on cared about and actually remembers you when youn return. There is no doubt I will be back for many years to come. Awesome team!!!!

Brittany Culbreath

Great experience with Dr. Waymire. Very attentive and knowledgeable. She took the time to discuss my eye health and provided a recommendation for a better contact lense than the ones I had been using for the last 4 years. I highly recommend Donelson Eye Care and Dr. Waymire. Will be back.

Gerald Henderson

Awesome Service great people very easy in and out thanks so much great Job!!!

Lindsey Bohland

This place is fantastic. It had been over 10 years since my last eye exam, so I was a little weary of where to go. From the appointment scheduling on, the receptionist was so nice! She offered me coffee and airplane cookies, extra points for snacks. The rest of the staff was very helpful. I loved that some of the paperwork was laminated and given to me to sign with a dry-erase marker, how eco-friendly! The frames were a little pricey for me, but they do have a nice, unique selection.

jonathan wilburn

My family and I have been patients with Dr. Harris for several years now, and I absolutely recommend him! The staff at the practice are also really nice. However, I'm giving 3 stars because the place has managed to annoy me - I had an appointment a little over a week ago. Since then I've gotten at least 3 emails asking for a review. I hope that I don't get any additional emails following this review. Good eye doc, but a little misguided on the marketing strategy...

Rachel Clay

I have been going to Donelson for two years now with my family. The products are great, which is why I chose the center. It really stops there. The lady in charge of billing is honestly not the brightest and worse, has a serious case of "know it all-itis". I have the best vision insurance on the market for my family, as well as a supplemental insurance that would cover co-pays so I'd have to pay nothing. For TWO YEARS, I've had to pay out of pocket $50 for glasses for my son. Prior to coming to Donelson, I've paid $10. And that's for EVERYTHING you can stick on a lens including Transitions! I kept asking this woman to check my insurance because it's wrong. Finally, after having to endure a debate (she's really unprofessional) she sees it's wrong in THEIR system....but of course, it was someone else's fault according to her. She doesn't know what she's doing and something as critical as medical billing shouldn't be left to someone who just graduated from an online course and does not understand PHI (she is loud and unprofessional, did I mention that?), ethics or how to read and check her work apparently. I'll find another eye care center with great products, but a more competent staff. Snuddy and ignorant is a bad combination for anyone.

Austin Felts

I've been to two appointments at Donelson Eye Care. At both appointments everyone was very kind and helpful. The lady who taught me to put my contacts in was very patient and helpful. She was also willing to suggest her favorite brands of contact solution.

Doug Lepter

Highly professional, always courteous, and extremely competent in the eye care field.

Joey Kelly

Awesome place to go for al your eye care needs. Super friendly, Affordable, Lots of selection.

Samantha Saldana

Friendly and professional. I will continue to use them for my eye care needs.

Paul Bartlett

Quick, explanatory, and excellent job!!

Vanessa Eisenzimmer

Very kind and thorough eye doctor. They made my visit with my 3 year old and baby so wonderful!

Paulette Maize

The exam was thorough and the staff professional and friendly. I have been a patient for several years. I had a bad experience with the last pair of glasses and hoped my experience today would be better. The total for my frames and lenses came to $625. And that was after my insurance was applied. I can't afford that. I went to a competitor and the exact same lenses and frames I like even more were only $305. I will continue having my eye exam here. I love the Optimap. But I'll never buy glasses there again. I paid almost $700 for a pair of glasses two years ago that were crap. The lenses kept falling out and the side pieces kept coming undone. Very unhappy with product offered and the cost.

michael shelton

I always feel at Home with the doctor's and their amazing staff. It is a very friendly place. I've been a patient for over 5 years!!

Linda Gregory

I have been going to Donelson Eye Care for many years and have always had a positive experience. The staff is both friendly and professional and I would recommend to anyone.

Claudius Ibine

I had an overall great experience except my interactions with the receptionists. This is the second time they have been immediately rude to me for absolute no reason. Unfortunately, because of these negative experiences, I will plan to find an alternative Eye Care location.

Patrick Neely

Melloni helped me with my glasses and earned a 5 star rating from me. Patrick Neely

Michael Popwell

The doctors and staff at Donelson Eye Care were all so friendly and knowledgeable! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good eye care facility!

Cale Schmit

I was a patient here for a couple years because it was close to my office. Went there for my annual eye exam twice. Apparently you have to ask for both an exam and a contact fitting or they won't do both. Super inconvenient when it's time to reorder contacts and you find out your contact prescription is expired. The electronic system they use is not very good for contacting them. They have to print, scan, then email a PDF of a scan of a PDF instead of just emailing the original copy. Also, they seem really expensive. I noticed my bill was $300-$400 for my annual exam, which apparently didn't include my contact fitting. Not very convenient for those who like to get things done quick and efficiently.

Wykeisha Wright

Amazing staff. Personal one on one connections. No long waiting. Great experience.

Steve Cardin

Nice office. Dr. Harris has been my optometrist for at least 30 years. my visit was professional and on time.

Cynthia Cowell

The best. . Dr. Susan is terrific, and all the ladies working there today were helpful, courteous, and candid about which frames looked the best on me.

Donna Waasdorp

I visited Donelson Eye Care about a year ago and though my experience wasn't terrible, it also wasn't what I was looking for and I was unimpressed. When I arrived they didn't have my appointment down, which I had made online. That's an understandable mistake as we can't always rely on technology and I understand there are glitches and they still saw me so that was good. I had to ask the doctor (Waymire) who performed my exam if my prescription changed. Generally when you go to the eye doctor they address that once they have examined you after all that's what you are there for. I was told that the assistant who was in the room would go over my eye care insurance with me and he did not. Before leaving I asked to get my glasses adjusted and the woman who did it did not even feel them around my ears or anything after adjusting them, which in my past experience whoever has adjusted my glasses they always feel for themselves to see if it feels right besides me just telling them. I will say the staff was friendly, however I was not impressed with my visit so I decided to go with a different eye doctor this year.

Kyle Zimmer

Great staff and doctors... very helpful and provide very in depth information. Very reasonably priced. It is obvious they have state of the art equipment and a great selection of glasses to choose from.

Myfre Stuff

Great! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The heat was a little high but otherwise an excellent experience.

Dawn Carter

It was great! Love it there.

Alan Dunn

I've been in coustmer service 40 years. Everything went well until... I met the lady who'd be "assisting" me with glasses. She was abrupt with me, confused me about my insurance & when I asked her to explain again she was obviously not happy about that. I had enough so politely I said" just give me contacts". Needless to say I didn't get my glasses & will be looking for a hospitable company. Alan D.

Karen Balsley

I was on vacation from California and had an eye emergency. The staff was wonderful and got me in right away. Amy was very professional and calming and very thorough. If I lived in the Nashville area Donelson Eyecare would be my choice for eyecare. Thank you - Karen from California

Austin Cole

This place is AWFUL. Don't let the free coffee and "friendly" staff fool you! This place will rip you off and charge you extra fees that literally are nothing more than scams. I went to this place for the very first time with high expectations due to the positive reviews I read online. At first, the experience was everything I expected. The people were friendly, the atmosphere was welcoming, and the free apple cider I received put a smile on my face. None of that makes up for the bogus fee that I was charged, however. I was charged a $100 "premium" fee upon leaving the clinic. The eye exam I received was nothing special. I've had plenty of eye exams over the course of my life and this was literally identical to them all. My insurance plan covers an eye exam as well as a certain amount towards contacts or glasses. This place somehow found a way to milk $100 out of me by claiming that the eye exam I received was a "premium" exam. Upon leaving the clinic, I asked the receptionist what the charge was. She was unable to explain it. Her explanation was "Well, the doctor looked over your eye more thoroughly to check for any abnormalities." What?? No, this eye doctor did NOTHING out of the ordinary from any other eye exam I've ever received. I proceeded to ask the doctor herself what the charge was for. She also had no answer. She told me she had performed extra tests on me (without my permission) to "get a more thorough idea of what my eye looked like." Are you kidding me? This place is a total ripoff. I have NEVER been charged a fee like this. The fee was a complete scam to rip off a new customer. I am so disappointed. I recommend that you stay far far away from this place if you value your money and your dignity. Such a shame.

Vickie stanfill

Everyone is extremely nice!! My first appt was 5/28/19 for an eye injury- my wait time was over an hour. Dr. Zimmerman was excellent & recognized I was looking for new optometrist. For my follow-up Fri 5/31 he suggested I see Dr. Waymire who was out of the office the day I was scheduled plus another wait of 30 minutes. Another doc saw me to say the eye was healing and sent me on my way. Very disappointing!

Josh Aquino

Very rude women who run the front desk. I wasn't greeted when I walked in and they just asked me what I wanted, threw a sign in sheet at me, and asked if anything changed since the last time I came in. I gave them my new insurance and they insisted the card was not current, which it was. Then they said my insurance doesn't cover vision anymore and argued with me over what was showing on her screen versus what was showing in mine. They insisted "pediatric vision" meant it was for adults, which then I corrected them and told them it meant it was for children. She argued with me about that as well. When I told her I didn't appreciate the rude attitude, she argued with me again telling me she was not being rude. Her response was, "thanks for that information." I was trying to be very cordial and they did not treat me like a patient that they cared for. Instead, they treated me like a child. Kylie was the main one who was rude. The other lady with an attitude was blonde and sitting to the far left of the desk. I have been a great patient of donelson eye care for years, but will now be taking my business elsewhere.

Rachel Lane

Super thorough, clear about all charges (what insurance covered, what it didn't)...very easy experience! I let the optician know that I was really driven by budget when choosing frames, and she was happy to point me in the right direction.

Me Too

Over the weekend I had gotten something in my eye and I couldn't get it out. I was in need of some professional help quick. I called that morning and they were all booked up. The young lady transferred me to one of the techs and they worked me in. The tech did what he does and I left a very satisfied customer. The entire staff were very friendly and curtious. I highly recommend their services.

Alaina Schwartz

Super friendly and prompt! Love that they were thorough in explaining all options and sensitive to pricing. Very clean and calm atmosphere!

Stefanie Schroeder

I had a wonderful experience at Donelson Eye Care. The staff was friendly, I was seen at my appointment time, and the doctor helped address my concerns. I was in and out for an exam in under an hour--efficiency is important to me so that I could get back to work on time. I am looking forward to going again and am happy that they are my optical provider.

Melvin Colquitt, Jr.

This was a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff is friendly and professional and provide great service.

Elisabeth Grober

These people are quite literally the best! I was driving through Nashville on vacation, and had forgotten extra contacts in my home state of Illinois. Feeling slightly blind, I popped in to their store thinking I would have to pay for an entire eye exam. No way! They helped me request my current prescription from my eye doctor at home, and then were able to give me contacts without the need for a whole separate eye exam! I can't thank these people enough for their kindness and helpfulness. 100% would come here again. Highly recommend!!!

Brad Klein

My visit was very nice. Everyone was very helpful. Looking forward to getting my new glasses soon.

Tresa Hardin

The office is attractively decorated and clean. The staff was very nice too !

Courtney Grant

Dr. Wamier (sp?) and Natalie were awesome!! The Doctor explained everything so clearly and despite my very modest eye complaint, she treated my very seriously and took my concerns to heart. I truly felt cared for and their advice and follow up was incredible. I tell everyone I know to go to Donelson Eye Care!

Ranae Choate

I've been going to Dr. Kendall Harris for years and he is wonderful. The new office is very nice. The office staff is warm and friendly. The only drawback is the prices of the frames are quite high as they carry a lot of high end designers.


I have been seeing Dr. Harris for 25 years or more, he is wonderful doc

Helen McDevitt

I loved going to Donelson Eye Care. Everyone was so nice and helpful. A special thanks to the office group for all of their help with picking out eyeglass frames. A very special thanks to Ross and Kourtney for their expertise and for their honest opinions about the frames I tried on. Can't wait to go back.

Mechelle Kelton

It was my 1st time there and everyone was extremely nice and helpful. The doctors and his helpers were very informative and that i appreciate. Thanks Donelson Eye Care Mechelle

Bruce Burgess

I have trusted my eye's to this team for decades. They are super knowledgeable about the latest trends out there. I used them for a consult for ICL (Implanted Contact Lens) surgery and they were right on point. Use this team because your eyes are worth it.

Jan Hollier

The best vision experience I have ever had as well as the support and staff helping to get my glasses just right. The staff also helped me pick out all my frames and they look very nice. These are the only glasses that I have ever actually been able to wear all day and SEE comfortably. I will also be getting several other pairs of glasses there. Their quality of frames, etc. are much better than the box stores and the prices for my progressive lenses are in line with other vision places. The doctors are very intelligent and take the time to listen and train you as well as the staff. They take care of you to make sure you are satisfied. The service is excellent. The experience is pleasant and I have always dreaded getting my vision checked and picking out new glasses. I can relax with this staff and trust their guidance. I have complete confidence in this office. It is my new "Vision Spa". The office is beautiful and the coffee is good too!

I absolutely love the team at Donelson Eye Care. They are so professional and so polite!! They explain everything very well and really care that you know what's going on. I had a follow up appointment that I was early for and they saw me right away! They are efficient and so helpful. I love this place. I definitely recommend if you're looking for an eye doctor!!!

I have been going to this place of business for 20 years. Dr Kegarise was in business herself at first now she has more people working with her. The place is amazing. Cant say enough good things about it

I called 20+ local places to get new glasses. I ended up going with Donelson's Eye Care because they were extremely nice and pleasant to talk with on the phone. I am leaving the country in 1 week and needed my glasses within that timeframe. They worked with me to help make that possible and were very understanding. I had a positive experience with everyone I encountered on my first visit. I'd definitely go back and recommend it to others.

I had the worst problem going on with my eye, first night I went to the ER and of course they didn’t know what they were talking about and performing the excessive as not needed. I went to this eye doctor the next day ( called in and they were willing to see me) he knew what he was talking about after being there for 5 minutes! He knew the resolution and the kind of pain I was in. Immediately reacted and started fixing my issues. I left with a contact bandage on and a bunch of eye drops and had to get a prescription one as well. I finally could lay down and sleep. I followed up the next day with him again and progress was 150% from where I was. He knew what I needed once again the pain I was in and I picked up another precrsition for a daily eye drop from this point on to prevent this and also followed up 2 days later and was fully healed. He knew exactly what he was doing and I couldn’t of asked for any other doctor that’s better then him. The ladies at the front was so polite and respectful and very helpful. I loved everything about this place! Awesome job Team I will be coming back in the near future for follow ups!

I am VERY impressed with Donelson Eye Care! I was new to Nashville and needed to find a local doctor to follow up on eye care needs my previous ophthalmologist had identified. Dr. Waymire and team listened, asked their questions, ran tests, then explained my eye health situation in a way that made sure I really understood and had good space for questions. SO important, and unfortunately not universal in patient care--but Dr. Waymire rocked it! I also really appreciated not experiencing pressure to buy glasses at this appointment. I already have multiple pairs of glasses, and that's one thing that can feel uncomfortable at eye appointments I've been to at other offices. Donelson Eye Care has this great form that they gave me at registration where I could mark what my intentions were for the visit. I indicated that I didn't want to buy new glasses unless it was necessary (from a prescription standpoint). And since it wasn't, they even helped make a tweek to loosen some tension I was feeling on my existing frames. I left my appointment knowing where my eye health was at and feeling very cared for as a patient. Thank you Donelson Eye Care!

I have been depending on Susan and her awesome staff for 21 years and have never been disappointed with the care I have received! Susan quickly became a dear and totally trusted friend as well as physician. I am very thankful and blessed to be able to entrust my precious vision to this awesome doctor and her staff. I would never go elsewhere!

Always super nice. Very efficient.

Wayne Smith

If I ever enjoyed a Dr vist, this was it! Very friendly staff and probably the most through eye exam I've ever had. Dr. Bingham was very friendly and helpful as was his assistant Rachel. I have no reservations about recommending this place if you need eye care.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. This was my first visit and definitely not my last.

Alisa Bailey

Dr Amy cared for my son and make him feel very comfortable. The eye exam was not rushed, she took her time, spoke kindly, and explained everything. I highly recommend DR. AMY!!!

Charlene Wood

I checked my insurance billing online and for those 2 TEST on my glaucoma they are charging me for a doctor visit. hence 1 star for non honest billing practice. when I got there to have my eyes tested for vision loss due to my glaucoma the lady who did the test was kind of impatient and actually moved the machine while it was testing..... I informed them of this during the survey, they contacted me and had me come in again to retest ( free of charge they said) and I asked to look at the previous test. they did not show it to me. I seen no eye doctor either time and I had a different tech but....

Alena Roush

Everyone at this office is so friendly! They went above and beyond to help me and answered all of my questions with patience and kindness. Thanks for all your help!

Andrea Schaale

This is my second visit to Donelson Eye Care and I have had an excellent experience both times. This time I went in with my 5 month old and everyone was so accommodating. The optometrist even held my baby while she was fussy and I was trying to get new contacts in my eyes. They also took short breaks while checking my eyes so I could talk to and reassure my baby. They also made sure that I knew all the cost and how much my insurance would cover before I got my exam which was very helpful.

Brandon Perdue

Friendly staff and a good selection of frames.

Mary Willis

Super friendly staff. Super quick appointment. I'll recommend this to anyone I know. They were very efficient and I felt like I was more than just a number to them.

Sullivan Baker

Rachel Winston

Up until a week ago I would have recommend this company. It was easy to make appointments. There were friendly employees and they didn't harass me about dilution. This week, I saw heck to the NO! I had appointment 1 year ago and I just receive a bill for over $250 for a contact lens exam! WTH that a freaking car payment or an electric bill. These folks are tying to tell me, now, that I was not eligible for an exam at the time I came in after I was told they check my insurance and I was good. Kinda seems like someone dropped the ball on verifying insurance and I am being ask to pay for their incompetence! Who the heck dropped the ball on this? I'd like for them to be held responsible! My suggestion to any and everyone! Find another company or you could be looking at a $250 contact lens exam bill in a year!

Matthew Brum-Taylor

Friendly and well-educated staff!

Mike Jones

Great Staff! Great Visit! I would highly recommend.

Josh Scalf

The folks at DEC will shoot you straight and give you an honest assessment of what you need without trying to upsell you on anything. Knowledgeable doctors that have great rapport and help each other figure out unusual diagnoses.

Gloria Massie

I'm confident they know what they are doing. Great staff.
