Dr. Glenn Coullard, an optometrist, has joined The Williamson Eye Center’s Zachary location.

Coullard, a Franklin native, has more than 40 years experience in optometry and is a graduate of the University of Houston’s College of Optometry, where he was a member of the faculty, a news release said. He also served as an optometry officer in the Medical Service Corps of the Army.

Coullard has been practicing in the Baker, Zachary and St. Francisville areas for more than 30 years.

Coullard’s first official day at the Zachary Clinic was Nov. 3. He will treat patients on Mondays and Tuesdays.

“The Williamson Eye Center is very pleased to associate with Dr. Coullard. Our practices combined bring together nearly 60 years of eye care experience in Zachary,” said Charles Williamson Jr., office administrator. “We are proud of our history and look forward to a great future.”
