It is our mission to provide the highest quality of care, professionalism, and customer service to our patients. We strive to be at the top of our profession with knowledge, skill, and cutting edge technology. We want each patient to leave knowing they received the best possible care, and to feel comfortable recommending us to their friends and family.
Woodlands Eyecare opened its doors off Highway 377 in 2008. It was one of the initial healthcare facilities to open in the now flourishing area around the Highway 380 and Highway 377 junction. Woodlands Eyecare takes pride in their small town roots and that of their patients. You will find a warm and inviting environment upon walking through the front door. Our staff and doctors consider their patients family and treat them as such. There is a complimentary coffee or tea station, a comfortable waiting area, a play area and reading nook for children awaiting their eye exams, a full designer frame selection encompassing all of the current trends, as well as a full service lab to adjust and maintain your eye wear.
Woodlands Eyecare not only cares for your annual vision needs, but also treats eye infections, retinal diseases, glaucoma, and ocular trauma. Every one of our opticians is well qualified to help you select eyewear to suit your style and prescription. Our contact lens technicians have undergone extensive training and are able to assist you with any and all of your contact lens needs. Woodlands Eyecare is also committed to having the most current technology available for the treatment and management of our patients. Here you will find a staff who looks to put the patient's needs first, and a staff who wants every patient to know their ocular health is in the right hands.

After graduating Dr. Blansett completed a residency in Hospital-based Optometry at the Tuscaloosa Veterans Administration Hospital in Tuscaloosa, AL. She was on faculty at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Optometry for two years before deciding that she was best suited for private practice.
Dr. Blansett has practiced in Aubrey since February 2009. “I love the small town feel that working in Aubrey provides. I have the privilege of getting to treat the same patients’ year after year. They have become part of our family over the past seven years, and I look forward to many years to come.” Dr. Blansett is board certified by the American Board of Optometry and has a special interest in dry eye, glaucoma, diabetes, and retinal disease. She and her husband currently reside in Prosper with their son, William, and daughter, Shelby.

From doctors, to staff, and patients too! We all share a symbiotic relationship. It is our recognition of our togetherness with you that I believe makes us different. I hope this is a philosophy that can find its home nestled inside us all at some point. We need each other."
