Heather McBryar, OD, FCOVD

Diplomate, American Board of Optometry
Dr. Heather McBryar is a certified optometrist and a Tennessee native. She has more than 16 years of experience in the field of optometry. Her fascination with the field began at a young age with a visit to the eye doctor for a minor vision issue of her own, and later upon learning about a vision condition that ran in her family. With her son both having a vision issue and being on the autism spectrum, Dr. McBryar hit on the novel concept of combining both low vision treatment and vision therapy to achieve the best possible results for patients in need of more specialized help.

Dr. McBryar graduated with honors from Nova Southeastern University College of Optometry. She is a Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD), a candidate for Fellowship in the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association (NORA), and a Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry (ABO).

Dr. McBryar has hospital privileges at Siskin Hospital for Physical Rehabilitation and is a co-founder of the Chattanooga Area Low Vision Network. She has lectured extensively on the topics of neuro-optometric rehabilitation and low vision
