Dr. Brianna Farley


Brianna Farley, O.D. received her Doctor of Optometry from The Ohio State University’s College of Optometry in 2020 and earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Concord University in Athens, West Virginia. Dr. Farley joined Vision Center of Lake Norman in May 2022. Her special fields of interest include medical and pediatric eye exams, myopia control, and treatment of amblyopia. Dr. Farley developed a strong interest in optometry after spending time shadowing her hometown optometrist. She was fascinated by how much an eye exam could reveal about a person’s overall health.  She knew that she wanted to be part of a profession in which she could evaluate and treat specific eye conditions and monitor the impact that overall health issues have on the eyes.
