Better Vision for a Better Life
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.
Don't compromise on vision care. Trust your eyes to a leading optometrist.
Serving our patients in a courteous, professional and kind manner, our goal is to develop long-lasting relationships with each of our patients. We offer the very best technologies available, the highest standards in quality care, and uncompromising compassion. Dr. Walter Choate
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.

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.

We offer disposable lenses, multifocal lenses, hybrid lenses, high-astigmatism lenses, post-surgical lenses, cosmetic tinted lenses, and extended-wear lenses.
Protect Your Vision with a Comprehensive Eye Exam
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.
