Seeing Green easier in Demopolis

DEMOPOLIS-For all the residents of West Alabama, that can see the color Green, he sure hopes everybody stops by and sees him. The newest Optometrist to the Demopolis area isn’t Green with envy because he was just born that way.

Dr. Chad Green recently purchased the Vision Center on Highway 80 West and is ready to make the City of Demopolis his home. He said he was originally from the City of Guin, AL, about an hour north of Tuscaloosa.

“I just want to continue the quality care for the residents of Demopolis,” Green said, “This is going to be home.”

He said he finished his undergraduate work at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1988 and then graduated from the School of Optometry at UAB in 1992. He also said he was in the U.S. Army for two years and six years in the Army reserves.

“I went into the Army because they would pay for Optometry School, after I finished my two years,” Green said.

He said he was stationed at Fort Monmouth in New Jersey and after his years of service, he finished as a Captain. Once he finished college, he was an associate at a vision center in Winfield, AL.

“I left Winfield and then moved to Selma and opened a practice there for nine years,” Green said.

He said he moved to Georgia to be an associate there for one year and then the practice here in Demopolis became available and my family wanted to move back to Alabama, so we did. He also said he and his family, which consists of wife Meredith and two sons ages 11,5 and one daughter 9 wanted to move to a small town and he wanted a private practice.

“We want to raise our children here,” Green said.

He said he will be in the office four days a week and in the Butler office one day a week. He also said Dr. Lacefield will be part-time in the office two days a week and Dr. Bailey would also be part-time in the office one day a week.

“I would like to all the residents of West Alabama to come by and let me and my wonderful staff attend to all your needs in the area of vision care,” Green said.
