​Pediatric Ophthalmology

Adult strabismus 

Dr. Carl Flinn is a pediatric ophthalmologist with over 30 years of experience.  Dr. Flinn provides his patients with a thorough ophthalmic medical exam to treat conditions such as near-sightedness and far-sightedness, crossed or offset eyes (strabismus), lazy eye (amblyopia), and all types of eye infections and injuries.  Dr. Flinn doesn't just see children!  He also specializes in the treatment of adults who have crossed or offset eyes (strabismus) and double vision, as well as the parents and grandparents of our current patients.


After your exam, walk down the hall to Peepers Optical Shoppe!  Peepers offers the largest selection of children's glasses in the Memphis area, with a great inventory of teen and adult frames as well.  For today's active child, Peepers also carries sunglasses, sports goggles, and swim goggles.  In addition, most of our frames have a one year warranty available for purchase.  Just what the doctor ordered! 


Dr. Flinn has a fantastic group of school screeners who travel out to the community to provide children with a basic vision screening at their school.  It takes just a few minutes out of the children's school day and provides parents with vitally important feedback about their child's vision and eye health.  If you are on the staff of a school or would like to recommend for us to visit your child's school, please call our office!


Peepers Optical offers same day service on most glasses prescriptions.  We offer only the highest quality frames and lenses made of state of the art materials, such as:

  • Polycarbonate Lenses: the thinnest, lightest, and most shatter resistant material available.
  • High Index Lenses: a special lens material that reduces the bulk and thickness of lenses for wearers of strong to extremely strong prescriptions.
  • Transition Lenses: automatically adjust from clear to dark and every shade in between in response to sunlight.
  • Crizal: a clear anti-reflectant coating that blocks glare, reduces eye strain, and includes a one year warranty on the frame and lenses.


Peepers offers complete contact lens selection, including training for new wearers.  Most contact lens prescriptions can be filled on the same day.

We now offer a website that you can order your contact lenses through directly, just click on the button below, register your account and place your order. If you have any problems or questions, please call our optical shop at 901-681-4045.


Sport goggles are a great option for kids and adults who live an active lifestyle.  Peepers has Rec-Specs that are perfect for sports like baseball, basketball and tennis.  In addition, we carry a line of swim goggles that can be customized with the patient's prescription.   


Peepers offers a complete line of accessories including cases and straps to meet all of your child’s needs.  Many frames can be customized with additions such as cable temples, which wrap around the ear to keep glasses more stable.
