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.

Loved how efficient the staff was. The mask wearing stresses everyone out but the staff put me at ease and the visit felt as if the pandemic wasn't happening. Thanks for putting me at ease!

Everyone is so nice and professional. There is hardly any waiting time. Modern equipped office. They take most insurance. Not just for eye exams they treat medical issues as well. The staff is very patient when selecting frames. They have nice selection of frames. I can see better than with other places since they have better quality progressive lenses.

This organization’s professional, kind and courteous. This was my first time needing prescription eye glasses. From the receptionist to the technician, to Dr. Pham and then the eyeglass technician, they were efficient, understanding and informative. I appreciate them so much.

Dr. Reedee Granado-Chaney was very patient, kind, and thorough. I had a great visit as a first time patient. Harwood vision had a great selection of frames and they came in sooner than quoted. I'm very pleased with my new glasses!
