Mineola Eyecare got its start in 1946, when Dr. J. Carl Norris opened up for practice in downtown Mineola. Dr. Norris became well known and highly respected in Mineola and the surrounding areas. He still serves the community through his work at First Baptist Church and the Meredith Foundation. Dr. Norris retired in 1990 and that is when Dr. Andy Hawari joined the practice. For 12 years Dr. Hawari and Dr. T.D. McClenny continued the progress of the changing profession of optometry. Dr. T.D. McClenny left the practice in December of 2002 to begin a full time commitment to serve in the missionary field. Dr. Hawari proceeded at that time to continue the practice and became sole owner. Now adding a part-time associate, Dr. Pat McGonagill, we offer the latest in eye disease detection, treatment and co-management of eye surgeries such as cataract and LASIK, utilizing computerized state of the art equipment and innovative technology. For 22 years, Dr. Hawari, associates and staff have proudly served Mineola and surrounding areas. We continue to progress as our world and eye care change. We implement the newest and lastest technological advances as soon as we believe they have an appropriate place in our work. On occasion we are innovative and use advancements in technology not specifically designed for eye care, such as the use of iPads to collect your health in take so you don’t have to fill out a bunch of paper.
