Meet Our Staff

Dr. Cook

After graduating from Southern California College of Optometry in 1980, Dr. Cook moved back to his home state of Missouri to open his own practice. The first few years he spent operating his own practices in Springfield and Houston, Missouri. In 1986, Dr. Cook moved into the commercial mainstream by joining Lenscrafters. After 18 dedicated years at Lenscrafters Dr. Cook felt the need to open a new practice, Advanced Family Eye Care, to better serve his patients and the community. Dr. Cook and his wife live on a farm west of Springfield. They have eight children, and fifteen grandchildren.


Faith is our optician in the office. She is experienced in laboratory work, adjustments and frame selection. You will enjoy working with her as she assists you in choosing the eyewear that is best for you and adjusting them to the optimal fit. Faith can also help you at the front desk with any of your vision needs.


Becky handles the insurance billing and manages the finances in our office. Although she spends most of her time at the desk, Becky is happy and qualified to help our patients with pre-screening and other vision needs. 


Jane is our optometric technician. She helps Dr. Cook with examination pre-testing and special procedures such as retinal photography and visual field testing. She also staffs our front desk and can help you with a variety of needs including scheduling appointments and questions about billing and insurance coverage.
