Optical, Medical and Surgical Eye Care

Complete Eye Care in 2 Locations!

We are excited to announce that Mackey Vision Center will have two convenient Corbin locations beginning October 1, 2015. Dr. Mackey has taken over the south Corbin practice of Dr. Stuart Eads after his retirement. We will continue to see patients in our North location and look forward to seeing patients in our new South location as well. We intend to offer our signature concierge level of care in both locations.

Whether you're interested in contact lenses, glasses, or have cataracts, Mackey Vision Center will provide you with quality eye care. Dr. Mackey has been serving southeast Kentucky for 46 years. Come in and experience our short wait times and concierge level service.
