With an enthusiastic crowd in attendance, August Wallace Eyecare Associates held a Ribbon Cutting ceremony for their new building on December 15, 2016. This momentous occasion marked the opening of a new, modern optometry clinic run by Dr. August M. Wallace, OD, and staffed by his friendly, first-rate team. In a show of community appreciation for this outstanding optometry practice, a colorful welcome banner decorated the exterior of the building, located in front of the Hampton Inn and Suites. Serving the neighborhoods of Longview, Hallsville and Marshall, Texas, Dr. Wallace specializes in primary eye care for patients of all ages.
Dr. Wallace has been providing expert eye care services since 2007. After progressing from making eyeglasses in a New Orleans optometry office to becoming an optician and then an optometric technician, he realized his true goal was to become an eye doctor. In 2007, he earned his Doctor of Optometry and BS in vision science degrees from Nova Southeastern University in Miami, Florida. Since then, Dr. Wallace gained valuable experience from his work at various private optometry practices, always striving towards the establishment of his own practice.
The grand opening of August Wallace Eyecare Associates advanced clinic at 3032 N. Eastman Rd, in Longview, TX, marks the actualization of a family dream. Helen Wallace, Dr. Wallace’s wife, is co-owner and manager of the practice. With the latest diagnostic tools and optometric technology, a total range of eye care services is provided. Dr. Wallace’s comprehensive eye exams inspect the entire visual system closely, including visual acuity, efficiency and processing skills. He treats and manages eye disease, giving full preoperative and postoperative care for cataract and glaucoma surgeries, as well as for refractive procedures, such as LASIK and PRK.
Dr. Wallace is dedicated to educating patients so they can make informed decisions about personal eye and vision health. As a family-friendly practice, he welcomes children from six months old and adults of any age. A great deal of his training was spent with our nation’s older veterans, giving him a unique expertise in age-related eye conditions. As a resident of Longview and a member of the Mobberly Baptist Church, he is dedicated to all members of the Texas community that he loves!
Dr. Wallace’s new Longview office features an extensive collection of contemporary eyewear. Patient satisfaction is the top priority, and the opticians work together with each patient to fit the most appropriate frames. Specialized requirements, such as protective eyewear and maximizing low vision, are fulfilled with the best solutions. In addition to stylish eyeglasses for adults and children, all types of contact lenses are available.
The doors are open at the new Longview, TX, location of August Wallace Eyecare Associates, and patients are invited to enter anytime. Appointments for eye examinations and ocular treatments can be set in advance with the office staff.
