About the Makris Vision Group

The practice was originally established in 1955 by Dr. Clark to provide patients of all ages with the services they needed for excellent eye health. In the 1970's Dr. Clark partnered with Dr. Elder, and Dr. Makris purchased the practice in 1993. Once purchased by Dr. Makris the practice was renamed Makris Vision Group. Then our Medicare-certified and accredited surgery center opened its doors in 2001.

Dr. Makris is available to every patient should they have any questions about their treatment or our services. Both doctors continue to keep up to date on any changes occurring in the world of optometry, in order to provide the best care possible.

Whether you need eye surgery, would like to be fitted with contact lenses, or just need a vision check up; we can help. Our team of professionals work hard to make appointments that work around your schedule.
