Our Story

Premier Eye Associates was founded in September 2014 by Dr. Tyler Mills and Dr. Brian Samartino. The two were classmates and roommates at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University before each taking their externships across the country, Dr. Mills in California and Dr. Samartino in Alaska.

After graduation, they both returned home to South Jersey and a few years later began to discuss their vision for a private practice. They were determined to create a comfortable environment with an unsurpassed level of care and customer service. After looking at a few different areas in South Jersey, they were happy to call Collingswood their home.
