Dr. Shannon Zingle, the Shannon in Shannon Eye Care, dreamed of becoming a doctor from a very young age.

She wrote prescriptions for her sick stuffed animals. She drew blueprints for her future private practice when she was eight.

Zingle considers her profession her calling and her greatest accomplishment.

Shannon Eye Care is another accomplishment. You can get the best possible eye care around, the coolest frames, the friendliest service, in a boutique environment at 407 Church Street in downtown Franklin.

From 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, it is the place to go for everything eyes.

Dr. Zingle, the optometrist, sees to everything from comprehensive eye health exams to emergency treatment; from contact lens fittings to diagnosing and managing ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts.Screenshot from 2016-06-30 11:11:10

Joshua Boswell takes care of the frames. He is certified by both the American Board of Opticianry and the American Optometric Association, and is responsible for “all things eyewear” at Shannon.

Their gallery of spectacle frames “displays the highest quality artistry, craftsmanship, and originality in all of greater Nashville. We take great pride in devoting much time and thought in hand-selecting every individual frame that appears in our collection.”

Many months go into perfecting the design drawings alone of the frames they carry. Shannon Eye Care is the place to go for unique and exclusive eyewear.

It is also the place to go for the best eye care.

Dr. Zingle grew up in Northville, Michigan, graduating first in her class of nearly 500. She continued her education at the University of Michigan, which ranked No. 1 in the nation in biological antropology and zoology, the majors Zingle completed.

She then chose Indiana University as her medical school, getting a Doctor of Optometry there after becoming drawn to the preventive nature of eye care as an opportunity to directly better someone’s quality of life.

After Indiana, Dr. Zingle completed eternal trainingmat John-Kenyon American Eye Institute, a high volume surgical practice in Louisville, KY whose doctors are nationally recognized as experts in laser vision surgery and ocular disease.

Later she spent time caring for the vision and eye health needs of the active duty and military beneficiaries of the 55th Wing of the U.S. Air Combat Command. As part of the specialty clinic of the 55th Medical group, she was responsible for performing all contact lens fits for pilots belonging to the aviation/flyer contact lens program.

Dr. Zingle considers her time spent at Offutt Air Force Base Hospital, caring for those who have done so much for our country, a great privilege of her life.

She has made a name for herself as not just an extremely competent doctor, but a very warm practitioner. She practices with the motto ‘they may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.’

It is, after all, her dream job.
