Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bentley Welcome to Thurmond Eye Associates, where for more than 50 years, our dedication and focus on leading edge technology and advanced surgical techniques has been surpassed only by our commitment to quality patient care. Since Dr. Jack Thurmond first founded our practice in 1962, our focus has been to help patients enjoy a lifetime of the best possible vision. After establishing our first eye center in Weslaco, we have opened additional Thurmond Eye Associates locations in McAllen, Mission and Rio Grande City. This gives our patients convenient access to the same high quality comprehensive eye care found in the leading medical centers across the country.
