Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Dr. Michael Ennis and Dr. Kerry Reeves know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and both of our talented doctors understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists, Dr. Michael Ennis, and Dr. Kerry Reeves take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Meet our doctors:
Dr. Michael J. Ennis is a native North Carolinian with 27 years of clinical practice in the Fayetteville area. Dr. Ennis was born and raised in Greensboro, North Carolina, and knows the greater Fayetteville community very well. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry (1982). He then attended the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee (1986). He also participated in externships at the Carl Albert Hospital in Ada, OK, and then at Fort Bragg at the Womack Army Medical Center.
While Dr. Ennis conducts a family practice, he enjoys and has a special expertise with contact lenses. His other passion in optometry is giving patients glasses on the medical mission trips through Operation Renewed Hope Medical Missions Agency. Dr. Ennis is very fond of participating in these events and enjoys sharing the stories about patients he has treated on these trips who have never had glasses before. Once fitted with the right prescription, it is a beautiful sight to see those who can suddenly see and read their Bible, sometimes for the first time. They are instantly transformed before you!
Dr. Ennis arrived at this noble profession after much prayer and discussion with his own optometrist. He also consulted with his parents, an important influence in his life.
When not practicing eye care with his community members, you might find Dr. Ennis enjoying yard work, the outdoors, and music. He is an avid athlete and enjoys tennis and basketball. He is also a devoted church and choir member at Cornerstone Baptist Church.
Dr. Ennis is blessed with his wife Jeanne, a daughter, Elisabeth, and two sons, Luke and Nathan. His family doubles in size when you count his three dogs, Ginger, Giselle, and Tiger.
A native of Thomaston, Ga, Dr. Reeves received a B.S. in Biology from North Georgia State College and Doctor of Optometry from UAB in Birmingham, Alabama.
After graduating from optometry school, he became a senior partner in a practice in Hickory, NC where he practiced for ten years.
In 2009, after several years of making trips to Haiti to do eye care, the Reeves family moved to Haiti to be full time medical missionaries. They started an orphanage, multiple clinics, feeding programs, school sponsorship programs, and various other community development projects.
In 2013, a year after returning to the U.S. to care for their children, Dr. Reeves joined a cataract surgery and corneal specialty practice in his home state of Georgia. He also served as interim pastor for Byne Memorial Baptist Church.
Dr. Reeves and his family moved to Fayetteville in 2018 to join Dr. Ennis’ practice and to be closer to family. Dr. Reeves is very excited about being a part of the Fayetteville community where his father trained as a paratrooper. Dr. Reeves specializes in hard to fit contact lenses, dry eye treatment, and helping patients overcome the strain of constant screen time exposure.
