Dr. Bryan Williams


I’ve lived in North Dallas the majority of my life. I’ve been a First Eye Care patient since I was in second grade, my parents have been patients since the late 80s. I previously worked as a technician at both FEC Dallas & Park Forest.

I’m an avid sports fan, especially for anything Texas Tech, Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Stars, Texas Rangers. In my free time I like to spend time with my friends and family, watch sports, and try different TX breweries.
