In 1979 Duane Flannagan, M.D established his ophthalmology practice in Jasper Indiana. For nearly 39 years, it has been the only ophthalmology practice serving Jasper and Central Southern Indiana. In 2001, the practice was happy to welcome Judy Englert, M.D. to the medical staff. In 2004, the doctors became partners and Southern Indiana Eye Associates, LLC was established. Dr. Flannagan retired June 30, 2018. Dr. Englert is now the sole provider for the practice and is currently looking for new associates. She is a board certified and nationally recognized specialist who provides quality eye care to patients of all ages. She diagnoses and treats diseases of the eyes, as well as, performs surgery.
