Our beginnings

Formed in 1999 with four physicians, Jackson Eye Associates has grown to be the largest ophthalmology practice in Mississippi. The original partners were Dr. John McVey, Dr. Ken Toler, Dr. Glenn Herrington, and Dr. John Ford, who are all still with the practice today. In 2002, Dr. Curtis Whittington merged his practice with JEA and Dr. Phil Smith completed his residency and joined the practice. Dr. Robert Mallette, Dr. Richard Blount, and Dr. Wilson Moak merged their practices with JEA in 2005, and in 2007, Dr. Troy Newman completed his residency and joined JEA. In 2011, Dr. Troy Newman completed his Glaucoma Fellowship at University of Alabama-Birmingham.
