Dr. Walker is very motivated to fit all of the newest types of contact lenses including multifocal, high amounts of astigmatism, as well as specialty fits including keratoconus and ortho-K (CRT) lenses.
I sincerely enjoy helping people with their visual needs on a daily basis. A quality patient-doctor relationship is very important to me. I want patients to enjoy their experience and feel they are receiving very thorough & efficient comprehensive eye exams.
My wife, Nancy, and I love life with our two dogs, Jack and Princess, whom we treat like our children. We love to travel, spend time with our seven nieces and nephews and enjoy living on the lake. If I was not an eye doctor, I would be traveling Nashville, Tennessee, with an acoustic guitar on my back looking for a record deal.
Dr. Walker sees patients in the Elkhart office.
