“Best eye care center! My kids and I have always had the best service! They have always been great to fix my kids’ glasses and appointments are scheduled within a decent time frame, meaning we don’t have to wait half a year to be seen! They are great at working with us and getting us in as quickly as possible! Highly recommend Dr. Blackford! Friendly staff and great providers!”

“Premier Eyecare Associates are top notch! I had trouble getting my daughter into an eye doctor, and they got my daughter in to see Dr. Blackford within the week! We had a great office experience, with a full exam. We were greeted with a friendly smile as we were referred to get glasses, and wonderful opinions and options were shown to us. I highly recommend going to them for all your eye needs!”

Tasia W.

“I started going to Dr. Blackford at Premier Eyecare in Kirksville earlier this year and they have been fantastic. On two separate occasions they saw me after hours and on Sundays because of eye issues I was having. They go above and beyond for their clients and I couldn’t ask for a better eye care team!”
