Dr. Jordan Masters is a cornea specialist who enjoys using his expertise to positively impact the lives of those he cares for. Dr. Masters knows firsthand the impact that it makes on an individual when he restores their sight and improves their quality of life. He describes ophthalmology as an “awesome privilege” and could not imagine practicing in any other capacity.

Outside of comprehensive eye examinations, Dr. Masters also offers state-of-the-art micro incision cataract surgery, advanced corneal transplantation techniques, pterygium surgery, ocular surface tumor surgery, secondary intraocular lens implants, and refractive procedures including LASIK and PRK. During his internship at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, he continued his research activity and studies. He saw the dramatic, life-altering effect of corneal transplantation and the restorative power of cataract procedures. After completing residency at the University of Tennessee Hamilton Eye Institute he completed advanced surgical and cornea training at the prestigious Kellogg Eye Center at the University of Michigan. Dr. Masters was born in Florida but grew up in middle Tennessee around Nashville. His wife, Tyler is a registered nurse that now stays at home caring for their four young boys; Owen, Grant, Lewis and Reid. Dr. Masters has many interests outside of the office.
