Welcome to Family Eye Care

Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care but seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts and even if your vision is sharp. 

Dr. William Gordon and his staff at Family Eye Care believe in looking at the big picture when it comes to your eye health, so we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history and your vision needs. Our doctors know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting or treatment for eye disease (such as glaucoma or macular degeneration) or eye surgery (such as LASIK or cataract surgery), Dr. Gordon will provide you with the best care, advice, options and follow up. 

With an office in Monroe, Dr. Gordon has been serving the Greater Monroe area for more than 30 years. Schedule an appointment with our office today to see how we can help you get the best care for your eyes.



We want to welcome Dr. Anthony Lamar to our practice beginning in October 2015.

Dr. Anthony Lamar attended the University of Alabama in Birmingham School of Optometry where he was a member of Beta Sigma Kappa honor society. He completed an additional year of training as a resident at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans where he received advanced instruction in the diagnosis and management of complex ocular disease. He enjoys seeing patients of all ages and specializes in contact lenses, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, dry eye, and many other forms of ocular diseases.

Dr. Lamar is the son of an Air Force family. He has grown up all over the country, but he is originally from Alabama where his family still resides. He graduated from Niceville High school in Florida, and he went on to obtain a Bachelors of Arts degree in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in medicine from Faulkner University before attending UAB. Dr. Lamar always knew he wanted to help people and discovered his passion for eye care when he worked as an ophthalmic technician in college.

Dr. Lamar has been married to Laura Bowie Lamar since 2011 and is overjoyed to be providing optometric care for the Monroe community.
