Susan Carney MDDr. Carney co-founded Northland Eye Specialists along with Dr. Hembree. Her philosophy toward eye care is simple. “We want to make certain that we can meet our patients’ eye care needs no matter what stage of life they’re in – be it routine eye exams, new glasses or contacts, cosmetic procedures or minor or major eye surgery. Our goal as a practice is to be able to care for a patient’s eyes and vision for a lifetime,” she explains.

Considering the fact that she cares for generations of families at a time, often being invited to their weddings and funerals, she and the practice meets that goal. It’s a rare find when a doctor relates to children as well as adults or vice versa. Good vision is important at any age. Annual exams are important to eyesight and overall good health, so Dr. Carney takes the time to educate her patients. She’d never recommend a treatment or procedure without explaining all the details. “It’s a few extra minutes that mean so much,” she says.
