Dr. Chris Jabaley OD

Owner and President of Jabaley Eye Care

Doctor Chris Jabaley is a native of Fannin County, and has practiced optometry in the Blue Ridge and McCaysville area since 1999.  Upon graduation from optometry school, Doctor Jabaley joined his father's practice in McCaysville, GA.  In 2005, the practice underwent an exciting transition to a new, more convenient location on highway 5 next to West Fannin Elementary school.  This transition allowed Doctor Jabaley to have the most technologically progressive eye care practice in the North Georgia area.

Doctor Jabaley is a contact lens specialist with the distinction of being certified as an orthokeratology clinician.  This post graduate certification allows Doctor Jabaley to fit patients with overnight vision retainers to non surgically correct near sightedness.   His family practice includes treatment and management of all eye conditions including:  Diabetic Eye Care, Hypertensive Eye Care, Cataract Co-Management, Dry Eye Syndrome, Thyroid Eye Care and emergent care including foreign body removal.

Doctor Jabaley is married to Doctor Jennifer Jabaley and has a son Sam, and a daughter Izzie.  In his spare time, Doctor Jabaley enjoys golf, mountain biking, playing guitar, and Georgia Tech football.
