He is returning to being the Team Ophthalmologist for the Tennessee Titans for the 21st year and has just completed being Team Ophthalmologist for the Nashville Predators.

Dr. Porter and Dr. Weikert take pride in their work and believe in helping their patients achieve optimal ocular health.
Eyes have been called “the window to our soul,” and as it turns out, they also are often an essential window to our overall health. When looking at the eye on a yearly basis, the doctors can detect a number of things such as, blood vessels of the retina, which will give a clear picture at the blood vessels throughout the body, which in turn can indicate whether a person has hypertension, high blood pressure or diabetes.
Often times, patients think that a vision test is suitable for an eye exam, but research shows that it is not enough. Patients need to have a routine eye exam so doctors can evaluate the eyes and help prevent life-altering diseases such as glaucoma that can cause blindness. Our eyes allow us to watch our kids and grandchildren grow up, and our eyes give us the freedom to be independent humans and see the world for all that it has to offer.
Whether you need Cataract or Lasik correction, have diabetes, cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration, Dr. Porter and Dr. Weikert’s goal is to improve ocular outcomes while providing a warm and friendly environment for patients.
