Dr. Crabtree has lived in southern Illinois for over 50 years. He received his bachelors degree from the University of Memphis in 1986 and his Optometry degree from the University Of Missouri St. Louis in 1990. He has been in practice for over 27 years providing the highest quality eyecare available to the people of southern Illinois. He has a tremendous patient base that depends on him to provide all their eyecare needs including the diagnosis and management of cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and many other ocular issues. He and his wife Karen have been together for over 30 years. (It would have been longer but she would not go out with him when he asked while they were in 8th grade together) They have 7 children and 4 grand children (more to come). He feels blessed to be able to practice in his hometown and considers it a privilege to serve the families of southern Illinois.
