Eyecare Image

At Bright Eyes Vision Clinic, Dr. Bruce Colton and our entire Murphy optometry team are committed to providing advanced vision care in a professional and comfortable environment. As an optometrist in Murphy, our primary eye care service includes a complete eye exam that analyzes eye health and vision function. In addition to eye exams and vision testing, Dr. Colton and our team of optometry professionals provide testing and treatment for glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. We also offer glasses, contact lenses, and pre- and post-operative care.

Eye Exams

Dr. Colton and the Bright Eyes Vision Clinic team take routine eye exams very seriously. During an examination, our Murphy patients will receive a history review, a series of vision and eye tests, assessments of eye focusing and movement, and an eye health evaluation. Dr. Colton will discuss any additional testing that may be required to diagnose an eye disease or condition. Call us a today at 972-578-2020 to schedule an appointment.

Contact Lenses

Not sure that glasses are for you? Ask our Murphy staff about contact lenses. Advances in the field of optometry have produced a variety of different types of contact lenses with a range of benefits. Rigid gas-permeable (RGP), daily disposable soft, extended-wear (sleep approved), cosmetic and prosthetic are various types of contact lens options available today. Dr. Colton will discuss the various options with you to determine which type will best fit your needs and lifestyle. Schedule your examination today by calling 972-578-2020. There are many advantages to consider when determining which contact lenses are right for you, and our knowledgeable staff is here to answer any questions.


Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At Bright Eyes Vision Clinic, Dr. Colton provides pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures. Call 972-578-2020 today to schedule an examination to see whether you are a candidate for LASIK.

Acute Care for Red Eyes and Other Problems

Dr. Colton is trained and board certified to diagnose and treat bacterial and viral infections, inflammation, eye lacerations and removal of foreign bodies. Many patients with a painful red eye will visit an emergency room or urgent care. After ensuring that your vital signs are stable, the emergency doctor will prescribe antibiotic drops and refer you to a primary eye care doctor who has the diagnostic tools necessary to accurately treat the red or painful eye. Although doctors in emergency settings have received some training on eye pathology, they simply do not have access to the specialized microscopes and diagnostic coloring agents required to properly diagnose eye conditions. If you have a red or painful eye, save yourself a trip by coming straight to Dr. Colton. Whether you have an infection, inflammation, a foreign body or injury, Dr. Colton will properly diagnose and treat you.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Bright Eyes was a great experience for me! The staff is very friendly & professional. Dr. Colton took his time and made me feel very comfortable. Great Job!! I love my glasses!"
    Billy Hart
  • "I rank Dr. Bruce Colton as one of the very best eye doctors I have seen. He not only gives a very professional examination of the health of the eyes but also has the expertise to write a spot on prescription for glasses and contact lenses. I am particularly impressed with the state of the art equipment he utilizes to assist him in his diagnosis."
    David M.
  • "We have never had any doctor even come close to how thorough and careful Dr. Colton was during my daughter's appointment. He helped to solve some issues with a special contact that nobody had ever suggested--probably because they weren't as careful and thorough as he was. We'll definitely be sticking with Dr. Colton."
    Shannon Cox
  • "I have had great experiences at this office, both for myself and my child. It's been easy to get appointments and the office is clean. Dr. Colton is extremely thorough, professional, and very patient about explaining procedures and the results. He spent additional time going over treatment options with me. I highly recommend him."
    Sarah Proctor
  • "This office is brand new construction and so nice. I've had two exams with Dr. Colton and he was super awesome both times! I got scratched on the eye with my kid's toy and he was able to make sure it healed properly. Also, after my third baby my prescription changed and he was able to get it back on track, spot on, so that I could see when I was driving much better! Has also talked me through an eye drainage block (which was very painful) and with his recommended treatment I didn't have to get it flushed out- Yay!"
    Julie Palmer
  • "Dr. Colton is very nice! That was the most thorough exam I have ever had! He gives top of the line, best quality, luxury style eye care."
    Toya Richardson
  • "Dr. Colton was so awesome! He explained everything to me in ways that I could understand. The office was very nice and clean! I would refer Bright Eyes Vision Clinic to anyone looking for an awesome eye doctor!"
