Doctors & Staff

Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Eyes, etc. a proud provider of vision care products and services in Taylor.


Dr. Elizabeth M. Darby

Dr. Elizabeth Darby is a native of Lynchburg, Virginia. She completed an AAS in Medical Laboratory Technology and a BA in Chemistry while raising her family there in her hometown. She was also an ABO certified and Virginia licensed optician managing optometric practices.

As an ‘empty nester’ she left Virginia and moved to Memphis where she completed her Doctor of Optometry at Southern College of Optometry. There, she received numerous awards including Clinician of the Year.

With her extensive background, Dr. Darby pursued opening a private practice of her own after graduation. Her first practice was in Pensacola and then back in her hometown in Virginia. Both practices were very successful and passed on to other Southern College of Optometry graduates. She and her husband, Jim, relocated to Mississippi in 2014. Jim’s roots were in Mississippi as were many of the grandchildren. Dr. Darby now practices full-scope optometry at her practice in Taylor. Her professional affiliations include the American Optometric Association and the Mississippi Optometric Association.

During her free time, Dr. Darby enjoys spending time with her husband, children, grandchildren, and her precious Schnauzer Bella Bea. She also loves the Memphis Grizzlies and college football.
