What Sets Us Apart?

Founded in 2008 by Dr. John M. Dovie, an Eagle Scout and graduate of Virginia Tech, Blacksburg Eye is committed to not just being a member of the community, but serving the community.  This includes working with The Lions Club and The Free Clinic of the NRV, and raising money for numerous charities.  With our wonderful team we have developed up one of the most celebrated eye care offices in the area : 'Our Health' Best Bedside Manner (1st place) three years in a row, Macaroni Kid’s 1st place for eye care, and winner of the Roanoke times "Best of the Burgs" eye doctor in its inaugural year, 2014.  One more thing? Both of our doctors are Hokies!

The staff and doctors at Blacksburg Eye Associates support local businesses.  We have been a member of The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce since our inception in 2008.  Support your local business owners – shop and buy local.
