Dr. James A. Williams received a bachelor's degree in Biology from the University of Tennessee. He graduated from the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN. In 1990, Dr. Williams opened a practice at the Collin Creek Mall in Plano, TX accumulating over 60,000 patients. He expanded his practice in 2000 to include a location at the Stonebriar Centre in Frisco, TX, and a third office in 2010 at The Village of Fairview, TX. Dr. Williams shares his time between the three locations. He works at the Collin Creek office on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Fairview on Wednesdays, and the Frisco location on Fridays.
He is involved with Luxottica's Onesight program on international mission trips delivering free eye care each year. He has donated time in Romania, Guatemala, India, and Mexico over the last several years. His next trip will be to Thailand in 2012. Additionally, he spends time with his family and Church community.
A graduate of Georgetown High School, Dr. Jones earned a Bachelor of Science in biology from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas. After graduating from the University of Houston College of Optometry, he worked as a full-time optometrist in Temple, Texas for seven years.
His lifetime desire of teaching elementary school led him to a two-year study at the University of Texas at Austin. He continued working as an optometrist on weekends and during school breaks while he taught fourth grade for the Killeen, Plano, and Little Elm school districts. In 2010, he earned a Master of Education degree from Lamar University in Education Technology.
Dr. Jones began working at Williams Eye Care in 1998 after moving to Plano to marry Kelli Phillips. The couple shares an interest in quilting and sewing crafts. Dr. Jones also enjoys reading, watching old movies, and model building.
In 2015, after a year teaching at a high school in the Dallas school district, Dr. Jones left teaching to begin working full-time for Williams Eye Care.
