Meet the Team

Beverly Newhouse, OD

I will never forget the moment when I was 12 years old and put in my first contact lenses. I finally was free from my very large blue plastic frame glasses. It was life-changing. As I began my studies, I knew I wanted to study medicine. I wanted to be in a profession where I could really get to know my patients and take great care of them. I wanted to be able to give them the gift of sight and freedom. Freedom to see and enjoy the world.

I love caring for my patients and their families. It is great when we can diagnose glaucoma at an early stage so the patient will not lose vision. I enjoy treating a patient’s dry eye, too, so they can perform their job and live their lives without sacrificing comfort or vision.

I personally like to utilize technology to really custom tailor a patient’s treatment and experience. Through a comprehensive eye health evaluation we are able to fully discover an array of issues in the body. This is an exciting and wonderful profession that I have been in for over 15 years.

Dr. Beverly Newhouse’s husband Michael Newhouse and his company HM General Contractor’s designed and built our beautiful office. She has two children, Michela and Nate, who are now grown. In addition to her professional career, she enjoys traveling, reading, movies, concerts and working out.

Megan Matocha, OD

Optometry is the perfect choice for me because I love getting to interact with patients and solve visual problems that lead to better quality of life. Providing a good patient experience and finding the perfect solution to their concern is so gratifying.

I strive to be empathetic with my patients and help them understand their eye concerns so that together, we can formulate a treatment plan to meet their needs. Providing this education allows my patients’ to take their ocular health into their own hands. Tailoring glasses and contact lenses to their different lifestyle needs is a fun and unique challenge in every exam. I even love helping select the perfect frames to suit your face and prescription needs.

As an optometrist, I am also in a special position to help advocate for a patient’s systemic health issues. Ocular health can give us invaluable information that can lead to appropriate referrals for many different medical concerns such as diabetes, hypertension, and countless others.

In my personal life, I stay very busy with my husband and our two children. I’m an ex-ballerina who still loves to dance and stay active. I’ve also been known to chat with my patients about cosmetics and skincare if they’re up for it!

Tabitha Smith, Operations Director

I have been honored to be a part of the Elite Vision Care team since 2016. I am originally from Memphis, TN which is where I began my career in the eye care industry. Joining this field was truly eye-opening for me. I absolutely fell in love with caring for patients and ensuring they receive the best experience possible! I take pride in working hand in hand with the team so every person who walks in our door feels like they are part of the Elite Vision Care family.

I joined the eye care field in 2011 after working in banking and real estate sales. With over 15 years of customer service experience I understand each patient interaction is unique. My favorite part of working with patients is being able to find solutions that give them their best sight through ensuring all of their eye care needs are met. As a Certified Optician I work hard to say up-to-date with the latest technology and products. This allows us to offer our patients the very best!

I am always excited to hear any input our patients have. If you would love to share your experience with me directly, feel free to come by the office or email me at tabitha@elitevisioncare.com. The team and I can’t wait to see you!
