Team Member Bio
“I am delighted to provide excellent vision care here in my hometown of Mount Vernon. Vision is a gift that we often take for granted and one that cannot be replaced. My goal and passion is to help each of you maintain your best possible sight so that you can live a life that is brighter, happier, and healthier.”
Dr. Amanda Montgomery grew up here in Mount Vernon Ohio. She was homeschooled through elementary and high school.

She then attended The Ohio State University College of Optometry and received her Doctor of Optometry degree in 2011.
