Choate Eye Associates has provided exceptional eye care since our founding in 1979. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities, specialized medical and contact lens fitting skills, and unique optical boutique have made us one of the most highly respected eye care practices in the state of Tennessee.

Choate Eye Associates primarily serves patients in Gallatin, Hendersonville, Goodlettsville, and Nashville, TN, but Dr. Walter Choate has rapidly become the optometrist of choice and provider of the latest in eye care for patients throughout Tennessee and Kentucky. Our sterling reputation has allowed us to form excellent relationships with the area's best ophthalmologists, and, when necessary, our optometry practice coordinates with them to provide patients with corrective surgeries such as LASIK and PRK.

Advanced Treatment  from a Respected Optometrist

When choosing an optometrist, you should accept only the highest quality of care available. Dr. Walter Choate has dedicated his life to serving Nashville, Gallatin, Goodlettsville, and the surrounding areas as an optometrist and board-certified provider of treatment and management of eye diseases. Dr. Choate serves as an adjunct faculty member of several schools of optometry. He is also an FDA investigator for new lenses, pharmaceuticals, and ophthalmic equipment. As a result, our practice holds the distinction of being the first in the south to offer many new technologies before they are typically available to other optometrists or ophthalmologists.

Dr. Choate has been my Ophthalmologist for 7 years now, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. I moved last year, and I now drive for an hour to see him. The selection of frames is amazing, the office staff is WONDERFUL, and I always know that I am receiving the best care possible. I would recommend Choate Eye Associates to anyone and everyone!

Lasting Relief from Dry Eye

Dry eyes affect millions of adults in the U.S. Allergies, computer and mobile device use, and the aging process can all lead to symptoms like redness, inflammation, and blurred vision. In many cases, sufferers have lost patience trying to achieve relief without a doctor's help. Dr. Choate and his team in Nashville offer a range of treatments, including artificial tears, punctal plugs, and LipiFlow®, a new solution that uses the precise application of heat and gentle pressure to resolve gland blockages and relieve dry eyes.

Our medical optometry practice offers nearly every contact lens available on the market today. Our skilled opticians are committed to finding the right lens for each patient, even patients who have unique situations such as eye diseases or eye conditions. We offer disposable lenses, multifocal lenses, hybrid lenses, high-astigmatism lenses, post-surgical lenses, cosmetic tinted lenses, and extended-wear lenses.

Comprehensive Eye Exam Protect Your Vision

During a comprehensive eye exam at our optometry practice, Dr. Choate and his team of opticians analyze the eye to check for cataracts, dry eye syndrome, and other concerns. As you age, the risk of developing significant vision problems increases, so it's important to have these exams performed regularly by an experienced eye doctor. Eye exams with our opticians utilize some of the most advanced technology available in optometry. When necessary, we can provide new eyewear at our premium boutique after your exam.
