Dr. Larry Golson
Helping people enjoy life through better eye health and the best vision correction is the driving passion in life for Dr. Larry Golson. As a student at the Southern College of Optometry, Memphis, Tennessee, he participated in three vision service trips to Costa Rica and Bolivia with SVOSH – Student Volunteers for Optometric Service to Humanity. For each trip, Dr. Golson raised his own travel expenses and collected eyeglasses, which he sorted for men, women and children.
Dr. Eric Bryant
Dr. Eric Bryant is originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, and served in Wilmington for over a decade delivering the highest quality comprehensive eye care. He is excited and enthusiastic to now plant his roots in the Asheville community and grow his career with the Envision Eyecare team.
Dr. Cameron Steflik

Dr. Steflik is originally from rural Nevada, where cows outnumber people. His personal philosophy is quality care and service. Before starting college, he served a 2 year volunteer mission for The Church of Jesus Christ in South Wales and the Midlands of England, where he assisted with addiction recovery programs. He then went on to earn his Bachelor of Science from Brigham Young University.
While on a medical trip in Malawi with Dr. Steflik’s wife, Janessa, they visited a vision center where patients expressed how their lives were saved by a simple pair of glasses, which allowed them to find work to support their families. This inspired Dr. Steflik to pursue optometry.
Dr. Steflik graduated from Southern College of Optometry in 2023. He completed internships at Family Eye Care in Memphis TN, an underserved private practice, and the Greenville NC VA with an emphasis on ocular disease. He fell in love with the South while in school, but missed the outdoor lifestyle of the mountains, which is what led him to Asheville.
When not providing impeccable care to patients, he enjoys spending time with his wife and newborn son, playing the accordion, restoring furniture, playing pickleball, and pretending to enjoy running.
Alexander Gideon is an Asheville native and wouldn’t want to call anywhere else but the Appalachian Mountains home. With a background in sales and customer service, he is excited to help patients improve their quality of life by giving them the best vision possible. When not fitting patients in amazing glasses, he is also a Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association certified Author.
