JERRY L. LATHAM, OD, DIPLOMATE
AMERICAN BOARD OF OPTOMETRY
I grew up in Houston, and after graduating from Optometry School moved to Bedford in June of 1982. I opened my practice four months later in October 1982. I’ve been blessed to take care of the eye care needs of Northeast Tarrant County for 35 years.
Optometry has changed during my career from eyeglasses and contact lenses to a much more medical profession. I can now treat red eyes, glaucoma, manage cataract postoperative care, treat dry eye, and provide laser surgical co-management. This has involved a lot of additional training and certification.
In 2012 I decided to become board certified by the American Board of Optometry. Optometry had never had true board certification, but changes in healthcare demanded we have a vehicle to prove competence and show commitment to lifelong learning. It was a difficult process, but it made me a better optometrist for my patients.
I’m involved in my church, Countryside Bible Church, and in my free time I spoil my grandchildren and enjoy studying history and aviation.
