Joseph Manning, O.D.
Dr. Manning had always been interested in medicine as he was growing up. Having worn glasses, the idea of being an eye doctor appealed to him. After attending college at Covenant College and UT Martin, he then attended the Southern College of Optometry. After graduation, Dr. Manning and his wife Ellen moved to Knoxville to establish a practice. He and Dr. Lain developed a friendship and eventually a partnership leading to the establishment of The Eye Group. The Eye Group is going on 30 years old now, with two locations, five optometrists, and a fantastic staff. In his free time, Dr. Manning enjoys spending time with his wife and children, Maggie and Jackson, and spending time outdoors.
