Meet Our Optometrists – Dr. Adam Bryan and Dr. Kristy Tart-Bryan
Drs. Adam and Kristy Bryan are dedicated to improving the eye health and vision care for the people of Holly Springs, NC and the surrounding areas. Learn a little bit nore about who we are;
Adam is originally from a small town in southern Illinois. He completed his undergraduate studies in 2001 at Eastern Illinois University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in zoology.
Kristy, a North Carolina native, began her education at Duke University. She graduated in 2001 with Bachelor’s of Science degrees in both biology and psychology. After graduation, we each headed to the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN, where we met.
While at SCO, Adam was a member of Beta Sigma Kappa, the National Optometric Honor Society, and the International Gold Key Society.
While at SCO, Kristy received several merit-based scholarships and was editor-in-chief of the school’s yearbook.
We were both heavily involved in volunteering our time and skills as members of Student Volunteers in Optometric Service to Humanity (SVOSH). With the group, we participated in mission trips to Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, where we provided free eye care services to the locals who were unable to get proper care otherwise.
Optometry school sweethearts, we got married between taking exams in the summer of 2003 at Duke University chapel. We then performed internships at The Eye Center in Memphis, Tennessee, at the James H. Quillen VA Hospital in Johnson City, Tennessee, and with Columbus Eye Associates in Whiteville, North Carolina. We received our Doctorate of Optometry degrees in 2005.
For the last 4 years we have lived in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Adam worked in a mixed surgical and primary eye care practice.
Along with his duties as a staff optometrist, Dr. Adam Bryan served as the Chief of both the Pediatric and Contact Lens Departments, and gained tremendous experience in those areas as well as serving as a consultant for area optometrists on complex patient cases.
Dr. KristyTart-Bryan has worked for a group optometry practice in Hope Mills, North Carolina, providing primary eye care, emergency treatment, and specializing in contact lens fittings.
When we’re away from the office
If Dr. Bryan has the time, you’ll probably catch Adam on the golf course or watching baseball (especially the Chicago Cubs).
As for Kristy, she has her hands full with their two little ones most of the time. But, she also enjoys decorating, college basketball, and spending time with her friends and family all over North Carolina.
“We both have a passion for optometry and love helping people to enhance and preserve their eye sight. Opening Carolina Family Vision has been a dream for us both. And now, we have moved to Holly Springs to open up shop and raise our two beautiful children.”
