Dr. Stephanie Montgomery believes patient care should be a physician’s first priority. She has been practicing optometry for 10 years. She earned a BS in Biology from Birmingham Southern College and a Doctor of Optometry from the University of Alabama in Birmingham School of Optometry. She continues her education to this day because she knows that her patient’s vision depends on her knowledge. She practices in primary eye care with sub-specialties in pediatrics and dry eye syndrome. Recently, she has expanded to her services to include the treatment of dry eye syndrome. Dr. Montgomery is also a proud member of the Alabama Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association, and winner of an award from the Gold Key Leadership Society. She specializes in primary eye care, dry eyes and particularly loves working with children. Growing up in the mountains of Chattanooga TN, Dr. Montgomery loves the outdoors and in her spare time enjoys hiking, fishing, and boating. She and her husband William are passing on their love of nature to their three young children. Dr. Montgomery believes in a sense of community and is involved in local school, scouting, and church activities.
