Walker Eye Care

Welcome to Walker Eye Care. We pride ourselves on providing you with the most professional and highest quality eyecare possible.

Dr. William Walker began practice in Asheboro after graduating from Southern College of Optometry in 1984. Dr. Walker took over the idle practice of Dr. Joel Whaley on Scarboro St uptown after he retired in 1983. Five years later, Dr. Walker moved to Village Marketplace, adjacent to Visualeyes, and the practice quickly grew there.

He gained some notoriety in 1991, providing special effect contacts and care for two movies, Hellraiser III and Children of the Corn II. From 1993 to 2001, Dr. Walker was the optometric representative on the Randolph County Board of Health.

In 2011, after 22 years in the Village Marketplace, Walker Eye Care moved to 971 S. Cox St, where we currently take care of all your family's eye care needs.
