He is a fixture in the Carthage community as an optometrist who cares deeply for his patients, always going above and beyond to preserve their vision and maintain their eye health.

When he’s not at the office, Dr. Hassell enjoys taking care of the goats, cows, and chickens on the farm, as well as spending peaceful evenings with his wife in her flower garden. He enjoys being an active part of the community that he serves, which is why he spent 15 years on the radio commenting on Carthage High School football.

Dr. Hassell happily joined the OPMT Vision Centers — Carthage team in 2022 when his longtime practice, Family Eye Care, was acquired by the respected family of providers.
