Dr. Troy Alexander, Optometrist

Dr. Alexander is having somewhat of a homecoming returning to Hartsville after pursuing his formal optometric education in Boston, Massachusetts for the last four years. He is a 1998 graduate of Hartsville High School where he received varsity letters in both basketball and soccer. He then went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Winthrop University, in 2002. In addition to earning his degree, he also played Division I soccer at Winthrop University for 3 years, forgoing his final season of eligibility to pursue his optometric degree.

Dr. Alexander ventured to Boston to get a Northern perspective and attended the New England College of Optometry, where he graduated in June of 2006. His clinical experience took him to Seidenburg Protzko in Baltimore, Maryland, Dorchester House Community Health Center in Boston, Massachusetts, the New England Eye Institute, Contact Lens Division in Boston, Massachusetts, Providence Veterans hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, and the West Haven Veterans hospital in West Haven, Connecticut.

Dr. Alexander has had extensive training in ocular disease management and primary eye care services. His clinical focus was in the area of low vision services which he spent time studying at the Eastern Blind Rehabilitation VA Hospital. He received intensive training there under the guidance of the well-published and nationally acclaimed Dr. Kara Gagnon, who serves as one of the VA's leaders in low vision services.

Dr. Alexander is married to Teresa O'Hare Alexander and they have a son named Wil.
