Welcome to Liberty Eye Care

We're providing an unprecedented level of eye care, distinguished by unlimited visits and non-dilated eye exams.

We're no longer satisfied running our optometry practice the way everyone is used to, hampered by the insurance companies' limitations. So, we've stepped outside the box.

We want you to come to our Athens, TN, eye doctor as often as you need, with no copays. We'll check your eye health with Optomap® instead of routine dilation. You'll enjoy a digital refraction for determining your glasses and contact lens prescriptions.

We've made it all amazingly affordable so it works for everyone, whether you have vision insurance or not. Dr. Selander is dedicated to providing you with the eye care you need and want in Athens, TN.

Amazingly affordable eye care in Athens, TN

What if you could get unlimited eye exams and primary eye care for less than $100 a year? What if you could skip the dilation and get more advanced retina testing and not even have to pay for it? What if you could make your own decisions about your eye care?

Better eye care than "insurance" provides

The truth is, you don't need "vision insurance" to afford an eye doctor or eye care. In fact, when it comes to your actual eye care services, vision plans cover nothing more than a portion of one routine vision exam per year. And that's not good enough!

We are not satisfied with providing a routine eye exam and nothing more. Your eyes should receive much better care than that, and you don't need to pay extra for it!

The cornerstone of our Direct Eye Care model is our Membership plan. A year of our Direct Eye Care Membership is cheaper than a single, typical eye exam. The Membership is a subscription for free eye care, including all your exams, office visits, and other primary eye care needs.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

We know you have many choices when choosing an optometrist in Athens, so we have made requesting an appointment a simple and convenient process via this website.

Dr. Selander is very thorough. I used him in 2022 and 2023. My Mother uses him as well. We are both highly satisfied with him and his receptionist who happens to be his wife. Lovely people.

Excellent experience. Dr. Selander was very thorough with his exam! I have a lot of issues with my eyes and as I am a new pt. Dr. Selander asked me to explain what was going on and wanted to know about my eye treatment history. This was not a rushed exam and I felt all my questions were answered. Dr. Selander and his assistant were very friendly and easy to talk to. Highly recommend Dr. Selander

Dr. Eric M. Selander, OD - Liberty Eye Care

Consult our Athens, TN eye doctor, Dr. Eric M. Selander, OD, when you need eye examinations for glasses, contact lenses, and disease detection. We are excited to provide non-dilated retinal imaging at no additional fee! Put your confidence in our 25 years of extraordinary eye care experience.

  • Staff

    Dr. Eric M. Selander, O.D. is fully licensed and board certified and maintains ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in the optometric field. Read on to learn more about our staff.

    Dr. Selander has been practicing optometry since 1999, and opened our current Athens office in 2005, where he has practiced full-time since. In 2019, he took the bold step to adopt a Direct Eye Care approach. 'Now I work for my patients, not insurance companies,' he often remarks. Direct Eye Care allows him to spend more time with each patient, caring for their needs rather than satisfying insurance companies' demands, while also reducing patients' costs. His patient-first approach has been rewarded with Best-of-the-Best nominations in 2019, 2020, and 2021.

    Liberty Eye Care is a family affair! Dr. Selander is joined by his beautiful, gregarious wife, Erin, as office manager. She wears a multitude of hats, from receptionist to technician to contact lens trainer in order to keep the practice running smoothly! 

    And, we're excited to have Sherry Seymour join our staff in 2023 as both a receptionist and optometric tech! We're confident you will enjoy her help as much as we have.
