Dr. James W. Kirkconnell

Dr. Kirkconnell is an optometrist in Nashville providing complete eye care services for the surrounding communities.

Dr. Kirkconnell graduated from the University of Houston College of Optometry in 1984. He did his internship at the Naval Regional Medical Center in New Orleans, and he did his undergraduate work at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA.

He treats most eye diseases such as eye infections, corneal abrasions, foreign body removal, red eyes, allergies, dry eyes, iritis, problems associated with contact lens wear, evaluation of diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. He teams up with several surgeons to give you optimum care when surgery is necessary and provides pre-operative and post-operative care of cataract surgery and LASIK surgery patients.

While he enjoys helping patients see their best in eyeglasses or contact lenses, he is happy to discuss LASIK options with you, as he has counseled and followed hundreds of refractive surgery patients.
