Dr. McBryar runs a specialty optometry practice, Amplify EyeCare Chattanooga, located in Hixson, Tennessee. She graduated with honors from Nova Southeastern University College of Optometry and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry (ABO). Dr. McBryar specializes in the fields of developmental optometry, vision therapy and low vision.
Dr. McBryar’s journey toward her current profession as an optometrist began at a young age. When her mother noticed she was having a bit of difficulty watching television, she brought her to a pediatric optometrist to get checked out. Despite some initial nervousness, she had an extremely positive experience and decided then and there that she wanted to become an eye doctor.
Additionally, she later became aware that there was a vision condition that ran in her family, and saw her relatives struggle with it. This only increased her passion to go into optometry and help others.
While working for an optometrist in college (the same one who initially inspired her), the future Dr. McBryar was asked to do developmental vision testing on a child patient. She again quickly fell in love with the ideas of vision therapy and developmental vision care. By the time she started optometry school she already knew with certainty, that these were the areas upon which she would focus. After she graduated, she went directly into practicing pediatric optometry and vision therapy.
