About Elkin Eye Care

Elkin Eye Care is a private practice that was formed when Dr. Janet Perkins at Schonhofen Eye retired after serving the community and seeing patients for 42.5 years! She sold her practice to Dr. Logan Oliver, the owner of Oliver Eye Care in Sparta, NC. The practice was started independently in 1979, and it remains that way today.

Dr. Brewer joined Elkin Eye Care at the end of 2021
