Joy Carroll, MD – Ophthalmologist in Ames, Iowa | McFarland Clinic


Hello, my name is Joy Carroll. I’m an ophthalmologist practicing at McFarland
Clinic in Ames, and I joined in 2018. I chose Ophthalmology because I wanted the
opportunity to treat patients both surgically and medically, and I also enjoy getting to
work with people of all ages. I offer comprehensive eye exams, diabetic
exams, cataract evaluation and treatment, also glaucoma evaluation and treatment and
retina evaluations as well as refractions. Most new patients, they first time they see
me, they’ll have their glasses’ refraction checked, and we’ll go ahead and dilate the
eyes so we can take a look in the back of the eye and make sure that everything looks
healthy. If there’s anything specific bothering that
patient, we’ll make sure to address that. I think the most rewarding thing about ophthalmology
is the chance to hear the stories of patients who’ve had their lives really enhanced through
the practice of ophthalmology. Extraordinary Care, Every Day means to me
that we’re giving patients the best possible medical management while treating them like
our own family members. When I’m not working, I like to spend time
outdoors with my husband and some of my siblings. We like to compete in triathlon, and so frequently
we’ll be out for a long bike ride or a run or going for a swim.
