Bard Optical Forsyth Location

Comprehensive Eye Care in Forsyth

Many eye diseases develop slowly and subtly, not displaying any symptoms until your vision is permanently damaged. The best way to protect your vision from an eye disease is to get a diagnosis — and begin treatment and management — of the condition as early as possible. At Bard Optical, we take a deeper, more comprehensive look at your whole eye health. We closely monitor your eyes for signs of disease using advanced technology so that we can begin treatment quickly and provide you with the best outcomes.

Driving Directions

If you’re coming from the north, head south on US-51 S, continuing on as it becomes Bloomington Rd/N Water St. After you pass Monical’s Pizza on your left, continue for another 0.9 miles, then turn right onto Crestline Dr. We’ll be on your left, across from Olive Garden Italian Restaurant.

If you’re coming from the east, head west on E Mound Rd. Once you pass Krekel’s Custard on your left, continue for 0.9 miles, then turn left onto N Water St. Pass Target on your right immediately after the turn, then in 500 ft., take the first right onto Crestline Dr: we’ll be just ahead on your left.

Every member of our team, led by Dr. Yolanda Arce and Dr. Deborah Jones, takes their time getting to know more about your specific needs. As we learn about your job, eye health history, and lifestyle, we can better tailor our care to you as an individual.

Comprehensive Eye
Health Exams

Protecting your eye health and ensuring that you can enjoy clear vision for life begins with scheduling regular eye health exams. During a comprehensive eye health exam at Bard Optical, our Forsyth optometrists screen your eyes for disease. If we find any cause for concern, we can help you manage your condition or refer you to a local specialist. We’ll also evaluate the quality of your vision, providing you with an updated prescription that you can use for new eyewear if you use glasses or contacts.
