Family Vision Care was founded by Dr. Jim Sellers in 1975. He retired after 25 years of service on December 31, 2000. His son, Dr. Tim Sellers took over the practice.
Family Vision Care is committed to providing the highest overall quality eyecare service to you and your family. We promise to evaluate your eye health status and explain your vision needs, emphasizing preventative care. Your questions will be answered in a non-rushed eye health evaluation, unlike many of the offices who spend only a few short minutes with their patients. Our staff is dedicated to providing this care in an atmosphere of compassion and respect.
Our mission is to remain on the forefront of eyecare through continuing education, utilizing the latest state-of-the-art technology and instrumentation. We will strive to exceed your expectations with a level of service and value not often seen in health care today.
Our goal is to ensure you will return and recommend our practice to others.
If you have any questions please call our office at (229)-896-4596.

We have a large selection and wide variety to choose from. We can also special order frames when necessary
We always offer specials with our frame lines. Our most successful discount has been the "FREE" frames when you purchase a pair of lenses.
A little history: The "FREE" frames discount was started as a result of patients wanting to use their old frame while getting new prescription lenses. This took away any chance to use their old glasses as a "back-up" or emergency pair. The patient's main reason for using their old frame was to save money. The "FREE" frames solved that problem. Now, you can get a new set of glasses for the same price as if you used your old worn out frames, and still get to keep that old pair as a back-up.
Don't forget, we carry the name brands, fashions, quality, styles, and prices you demand. You can find anything to fit your budget.
(The frame discounts cannot be combined with any other insurance discounts)

Protecting your eyes from harmful sun rays is just as important as protecting your skin with sunscreen. It is essential to keep your eyes healthy with sun protection.
It can also be important to look your best and make a positive fashion statement with your new sunglasses. You will find the quality and fashion sunglasses you need at Family Vision Care.

Your eye health is our MAIN concern. Nobody wants to have contact lens related problems, but many people do not understand the risk contact lenses impose. That is because no one has taken the time to explain ALL the risks.
Well, we take the time to explain those risks. We will offer a new perspective to the use of your contact lens. Our goal is to inform and educate you BEFORE a potential problem occurs.
We may challenge you to a better wear schedule that offers improved eye health for the rest of your life. You will leave our office knowing how to take care of your lenses while maintaining the best possible eye health.
Comprehensive eye health exams
Our technicians will start with a detailed medical history including chief complaint, blood pressure, family history, and current medications. Dr. Tim performs his own vision analysis while looking for any conditions that can affect the eye.
Our mission is to examine your eyes for any potential problem or threat to your vision. Our goal is to PREVENT any problem or threat from harming your eyes. This is obviously best accomplished while your vision is still good.
That is why we recommend getting your vision checked before a problem could start. The best time to come in is while your vision is still good. Problems can occur without warning. You do not want to wait till a problem has already started. Some problems cannot be treated with glasses and some problems cannot be treated when it is too late. Early detection and prevention is a better philosophy when it comes to your vision.
We also believe it is best to have your child's vision checked as soon as possible, preferrably by 3 or 4 years old. Problems can be detected even before a child can read or speak. Most problems are easier to treat when caught early. A child's vision needs to show the ability to have 20/20 in each eye by their 6th birthday and we have until 8 years old before a child's vision surpasses the critical period.
Remember: A child may not tell you he or she is having a problem simply because he or she may not understand vision could be better. Many of these problems are difficult to detect through observation so naturally your might think your child's eyes and vision are good. However, the best way to know for sure is to let your eye care professional evaluate your child's eyes.
Dr. Tim also takes the time to explain any condition he finds so you better understand your's or your child's vision. He will also take the time to answer all of your questions about your's or your child's eyes.
That is what separates us from all the other places. Your time is valuable and we will honor that time with a thorough eye health evaluation. Questions are encouraged. This can be an opportunity to find out what you have always wanted to know about your vision but were afraid to ask or were not given enough time to ask.
