Nursing Home Consultations

On Friday mornings, Dr. McKinney-Evans and Odom’s Eye Care Team members pack up portable medical equipment, medical supplies, laptop computer equipment, frames, optical equipment and our coffee mugs and travel to a different nursing home facility each week. We take care of the eye health and vision needs of residents who would otherwise not have access to care. This service helps to improve their activities of daily living and a better quality of life for our seniors in the metro Jackson area. The facilities that we provide vision care for are:

Magnolia Senior Care
Community Place
Brandon Court
Harmony Court

Veteran Consultations

World War II, Korean, and Vietnam Veterans from the surrounding community have been coming to Odom’s Eye Care for routine and medical eye exams. The Sonny Montgomery VA Medical Center has a program that allows veterans to have consultations with doctors in the community to expedite their care, so that they do not have to wait as long to have their medical services. We are honored to be able to serve the brave men and women who have served in our country’s military forces to keep our freedom and safety secure.
