Dr. Ed Poole’s main practice is in Spartanburg, SC. He also has a satellite office in Gaffney, SC, where his father Dr. E.M. Poole Sr., began the Poole family tradition in eye care in 1952. Dr Ed will proudly tell you that all four of his children followed him to the profession of optometry, including his youngest, Dr. Chad Poole (owner of Elan Eye).
Dr Ed has been helping Dr. Chad on some Saturdays ever since Elan Eye opened in February 2007. He loves to help at his other childrens’ practices on occasion, especially because it gives him a chance to visit his 11 grandchildren. His light hearted Southern personality and kid-friendly style attract many patients and families to return year after year. He even performs magic tricks for some children when time permits.
