Meet the director of our show! Your friendly neighborhood eye doctor has been in practice for over 40 years. His journey started in 1971 when he graduated from Airport High School. Followed by a bachelors in biology from USC in 1975. In 1979, the doctor of optometry we all know & love graduated from Southern College of Optometry! Dr. Earl Loftis started off practicing in Kentucky from 1979-1984. He later became the Director of Doctor Services for Lenscrafters in GA, SC, NC, & VA, until 1993. But in his big ol' heart he knew he could serve his patients even better! He had the idea of creating a practice where the doctor was involved with the patients experience from beginning to end. Then Eye on Gervais was born! A practice where you're not just a patient but you're Dr. Loftis' patient & trust us he WILL take care of you, from beginning to end.If you're not happy, he's not happy. Currently Dr. Loftis is the State Director for the South Carolina Optometric Physicians Association, & he also has a practice in Batesburg! He specializes in Low Vision exams, contact lenses, & being awesome. Some of his past times are Gamecock sports, spending time with family, dancing & singing/guitar/songwriting (he even has an album out! Seriously, what can't this man do!?).
