Our mission at Halifax Eye Care Center is to provide the highest quality eye care, incorporating the latest ophthalmic technology and techniques, delivered in a compassionate, professional setting ever mindful of our patients’ individual needs.

Mission Statement

The Halifax Eye Care Center identifies and treats eye diseases and conditions in patients of all ages, from newborns to seniors. Special attention is also given to addressing common visual disorders, prescribing proper contact lenses, and determining glasses prescription. Every patient receives the time and care they need to share their concerns and discuss options concerning their eye care. The result is that patients are confident that they have explored all possible options in securing the best treatment for them, including medical or surgical therapy.

Our goal: satisfied, confident patients with improved vision and a positive outlook.



At Halifax Eye Care Center, we love for you to see your best! To give you the best care, each member of our team has been carefully chosen. Our team is highly trained, skilled, and dedicated to helping each patient achieve and maintain their best vision. We care about our patients and continually strive to provide the ophthalmic care at each visit.

Harman Eye Center
Meet Dr. John Lackey

As you know, Dr. Mark Morris has served South Boston and the surrounding communities since 1991. The Harman Eye Center and its team of professionals shares the same commitment to the community as well as passion for great patient care.

We are honored to announce that as of December 6, 2019, Halifax Eye Care Center will become the Harman Eye Center of South Boston. As such, Dr. Morris has entrusted your eye care needs to a well-respected ophthalmologist, Dr. John Lackey who will be located at the South Boston location. In addition, you will have access to any of the other Harman Eye Center locations and physicians.

Dr. Lackey has had an amazing career serving in the United States armed forces as an ophthalmic surgeon and proudly serves in the Air Force reserves. He is board certified in Ophthalmology and has an impressive record of awards, including the honor of selection as a fellow in the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

We want each of you to know that even though the name is changing, Dr. Lackey and the Harman Eye team will remain committed to providing the South Boston community and your family with the personal quality eye care you deserve. The familiar faces of Halifax Eye Care Center will continue to assist you at your next visit. Thank you for the faith and trust in our abilities and we look forward to seeing you in the office soon.
If you have any questions regarding this letter, please do not hesitate to reach out to your eye care team.



“Dr. Morris is very competent with what he’s doing. He loves his job, and I felt comfortable with him. His mannerism is great. He’s funny and makes you feel very comfortable."

Jimmy I.  

"I was a bit hesitant at first, and a little fearful. But the office is very soothing — all of the staff went out of the way to make me feel comfortable and welcome — explained everything every step of the way. And my surgery with Dr. Morris went very smoothly."

Nancy P.  

"“Dr. Morris took it a step further and implanted the lenses so I would have mono vision — no glasses — and my eyesight is amazing!"
