Best of the Back Mountain: Eye Care Specialists: “If it’s about the eyes, give us a call”

DALLAS – Eye Care Specialists have once again won the title of “Best Eye Care Center” in the Back Mountain, according to the Times Leader reader vote.

Marketing Director Cheryl Summa credits the company’s community support to staff who genuinely care about their customers and their families.

“We are so grateful to our patients who return year after year for their eye exams and continue to tell their friends and family about us – it’s the highest compliment anyone can give us,” said Summa.

The company, she said, often sees generations of a family, with students returning home to schedule an eye appointment.

Kristen Harris, Practice Director, said, “I want to thank the Dallas staff for their dedication and a special thank you to our patients who continue to choose our talented eye doctor.

Dr. Tara Farrell pointed out that she sees clients throughout their lives, starting around age 3 or 4.

By the time patients are seated in an exam room, she says, they are often filled with gratitude for the staff at the front of the business.

The company offers a wide selection of eyewear and offers high-end and very affordable styles.

Back Mountain Eye Care Specialists has been in its current location in the Dallas Mall since 2011, having moved from Twin Stacks, where it had been for more than 10 years.

The location makes eye care readily available to residents in its place on Memorial Highway.

The company goes way beyond simply providing eyewear to customers, but instead offers a wide variety of services.

Farrell always encourages patients to “call for emergencies” related to their eyes rather than going to their family doctor or an emergency room.

“If it’s a matter of eyes,” she said, “call us.”
