Kilgore Eye Care Center, based in Kilgore & Gilmer, Texas, was founded by Dr. Floyd Childress in the early 1950s. Dr. Childress built the small office into a successful business, and in 1976 he welcomed Dr. J.T. Roberts into the practice.
At the time he joined the practice, Dr. Roberts purchased Kilgore Eye Care Center from Dr. Childress, who continued to work part-time for several years. During that time, Floyd and J.T. not only built a strong business relationship, but they became very close outside the practice as well.
Floyd and his wife, Irene, became the godparents of both Dr. Roberts' children (Jaleesa and Jadie). In 1998, Dr. Roberts expanded the practice, opening Gilmer Eye Care Center. Then in 2007, Kilgore and Gilmer Eye Care Centers welcomed Dr. Jadie Roberts (J.T.'s son and Floyd's godson) and his wife, Dr. Shiloh Roberts.
Although Kilgore Eye Care has changed office locations and added new faces along the way, we still hold family values and quality care above all else.
