Dr. Larry Golson received his undergraduate Degree from UGA and went on to SCO in Memphis, Tennessee to earn his Doctorate in Optometry. He participated in three vision service trips to Costa Rica and Bolivia with SVOSH – Student Volunteers for Optometric Service to Humanity. During his final year in optometry school, he was chosen to assist staff doctors in instructing third-year students. He served internships at the Eye Care Center of Colorado Springs, a private practice, and the Clayton Eye Center in Atlanta, where he received training in practice management and ocular disease.
Dr. Golson opened Envision Eyecare "cold" in 2008 in a saturated area for eye care and in the worst economy since the Great Depression. Despite these challenges, the business has grown to a mid-sized practice with a second doctor and a team of 15. Larry attributes his growth to creating a cohesive, collaborative team who delivers top tier patient care through "The Envision Eyecare Experience." For more than a decade, Larry has sought out his own mentors, coaches and consultants to draw the most useful lessons and create the leader he is today. He is passionate about self-cultivation, growth and the development of his team and his own business acumen.
Dr. Golson consults for Optometry practices and owners on a variety of topics including company culture, defining the purpose for a practice, creating SOPs, cultivating accountability and candid communication, and how to achieve financial success.
