Accepting new patients

Dr. Shannon grew up in a family of eye care specialists. Her father was her inspiration and she followed in his footsteps to become an optometrist. Her mother was an optician working alongside him in a small town in East Texas. After graduating from Southern College of Optometry in 1995 she returned to DFW to open a practice and raise a family with her husband, Mark. She enjoys spending time with her 3 girls, Ashley, Sarah, and Maegan. She also enjoys working with the Lions Club of Allen to provide free exams twice a year to those in need within the community; as well as providing nurses a “goody bag” filled with eye care products to 30 of the surrounding schools. She is a member of the American Optometric Association, Texas Optometric Association, and North East Texas Optometric Association. Dr. Shannon joined the Vision Source network in 2007 to elevate Shannon Vision Care to a premier practice and bring new technologies for medical care as well as eyeglass and contact lens designs for the future.
