The People In Front of the Lenses.



Doctor of Optometry

Dr. Dana M. Nolan is a family optometrist who provides exceptional eye care for patients of all ages. A Jacksonville native, Dana received her undergraduate degrees in Biology and Art from the University of South Florida, and her Doctorate in Optometry degree from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN. She then returned home to practice optometry in 1998. Dr. Nolan opened Vue Optical in Historic Avondale in October 2008. Dr. Nolan created an intentionally intimate and specialized practice, to provide individualized quality care. Her concierge-like approach allows the time it takes to answer all questions, educate patients, and provide quality personalized solutions. She is known for her compassion and attentiveness to patients, which helps to set her apart from others. Vue is warm, welcoming, and authentic - just like she is!

Dr. Nolan and her team provide an excellent customer experience. They are professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. And the facilities are always clean and tidy, with a large variety of frames available for purchase. I was thrilled to have found Vue Optical and always look forward to seeing everyone at my net appointment.

The office staff is so kind and caring. I love how I am always in and out so fast without having to wait 30 minutes after arriving to been seen like other offices I have been to. I will continue my eye exams at Dr. Nolan’s office.

Always a pleasure to visit with Dr. Dana and Vue staff! My exam is always thorough and Kelly, Amanda and Faith make sure I have the best frame for face shape and needs. Can’t wait for my new glasses to come in!

You will notice the difference from the national chains the moment you walk in. Dr. Moon and her staff are extremely knowledgeable and caring. Would highly recommend.

I have been going to Dr. Nolan at the Vue Optical for years. I continue to be appreciative of the smooth operation of the office and the thoroughness of the eye exam. Dr. Nolan takes the time to make sure I understand my eye health and what my options are for future eye health.

It’s always a pleasure to visit Dr. Nolan and her team. They are always so accommodating and helpful. Dr. Nolan’s knowledge and ability to make things relatable [are] so valuable. I also like the selection of frames they carry. It is far from the standards and all quality. Everyone can find something that looks good on them. It’s also nice to be able to visit and support a local business of such quality.
