About Us

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.



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 our best ophthalmic care at each visit.

“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!"
