Dr. Larry Golson received his undergraduate Degree from UGA and went on to SCO in Memphis, Tennessee to earn his Doctorate in Optometry. He participated in three vision service trips to Costa Rica and Bolivia with SVOSH – Student Volunteers for Optometric Service to Humanity. During his final year in optometry school, he was chosen to assist staff doctors in instructing third-year students. He served internships at the Eye Care Center of Colorado Springs, a private practice, and the Clayton Eye Center in Atlanta, where he received training in practice management and ocular disease.
Following graduation, Dr. Golson moved back to Atlanta as an associate optometrist at several practices and was able to witness the good, the bad and the ugly of practice management. Dissatisfied with the level of care and sense of team in private practice, he moved to Asheville in 2006 to pursue his own private practice and a great quality of life in our beautiful WNC mountains. He began reading books, researching and learning what makes organizations within and outside of eye care great.
Dr. Golson opened Envision Eyecare "cold" in 2008 in a saturated area for eye care and in the worst economy since the Great Depression. Despite these challenges, he has grown to a medium sized practice with a second doctor and a team of 15 members. He attributes his growth to creating a cohesive, collaborative team who delivers top tier patient care through "The Envision Eyecare Experience." His practice is welcoming from first contact and the interior design is warm, inviting and contemporary and has been featured in national publications. For more than a decade, Dr. Golson has humbly sought out his own mentors, coaches and consultants to draw the most useful lessons and create the leader he is today. He is passionate about self-cultivation, growth and the development of his team and his own business acumen.
Dr. Golson consults for Optometry practices and owners on a variety of topics including company culture, defining the purpose for a practice, creating SOPs, cultivating accountability and candid communication, and how to achieve financial success.

"Dr. Golson was very helpful in the growth of my office. He was professional and insightful before, during, and after the event. He was able to evaluate the various processes at my office and provide feedback on our opportunities for improvement. He helped us to improve our office culture and also to enhance the patient experience. During our event he was able to keep my staff engaged and interested, and I feel that everyone came away from the event with a number of action items that will help move our office forward in the months and years to come. I would definitely recommend Dr. Golson for any office wanting to improve their teamwork, culture, and communication."

"Dr. golson’s consultation with our office has helped us fundamentally shift the way that we approach taking care of our patients. Our staff found his “inside-out” approach unique. He does not use a cookbook approach, as some consultants do. He helped us create our vision and culture and also shifted our mindset, which has allowed our practice to grow. He’s very easy to like and trust, and quickly allayed the anxiety that my staff had prior to meeting him. He was able to captivate my staff’s attention and they still utilize the insight and techniques he has given them to this day. I would highly recommend him to an office of any size."
