Dr. Mark Walker Jr, OD
Dr. Mark Walker, Jr, is a native of the Michiana Area and graduated locally from John Adams High School. He earned his undergraduate degree in Biology & Chemistry at IU Bloomington and received his Doctor of Optometry degree from IU School of Optometry. Dr. Walker did his medical externship at Boling Vision Center. Dr. Mark Walker is highly trained in ocular disease management and treatment in glaucoma, diabetic retinal evaluations, macular degeneration, cataract evaluation, corneal disease, pre and post-operative care with LASIK and cataract surgery and optic nerve disorders. Besides practicing at the highest level of medical optometry, Dr. Walker enjoys seeing patients for Routine Eye examinations to update glasses and perform thorough exams on school age children. Dr. Walker is very motivated to fit all of the newest types of contact lenses including multifocal, high amounts of astigmatism, as well as specialty fits including keratoconus and ortho-K (CRT) lenses. Interesting Fact My wife, Nancy, and I love life with our two dogs, Jack and Princess, whom we treat like our children. We love to travel, spend time with our seven nieces and nephews and enjoy living on the lake. If I was not an eye doctor, I would be traveling Nashville, Tennessee, with an acoustic guitar on my back looking for a record deal.

Dr. Walker was AMAZING!! He spent time with me explaining exactly what was going on with my eyes and made sure that I thoroughly understood everything. I never felt rushed and the staff was awesome!

My husband and I both go to him and he's very thorough. We started coming to Boling Vision about 3 years ago and it has been a good experience overall.

I was informed today during the appointment reminder I would be charged the $40.00 office visit fee, and an undetermined charge for refractory charge if they needed to do this procedure. The refractory exam is the part of an eye exam! I'm an RN. Would you pay an addition fee to a heart doctor because he listened to your heart with a stethoscope? Same thing. One needs to Ref. exam to determine the proper prescription on each lens! My ins. said Routine Exams are only $40 copay! BEWARE.
