The Dr. Jerald F. Combs Eye Clinic at the University of Pikeville-Kentucky College of Optometry (KYCO) serves Central Appalachia with quality vision care. We offer comprehensive eye care to our patients while providing training and education for optometry students in our state-of-the-art clinic space.
The clinic is named in honor of the late Jerald F. Combs, O.D., a pioneer in Kentucky optometric practice since 1983. Dr. Combs changed the landscape for optometric practice in the Commonwealth of Kentucky with his push for in-office laser surgery.

During your appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to meet some of KYCO’s highly trained students. Our students are supervised by attending doctors and are ready to provide you and your family with the best care possible.
