The Staff

our staffBaker Family Eyecare was established in June 2006 by husband and wife partners, Dr. James N. Baker and Dr. Tania La Baker. The practice was purchased from Dr. Ralph Butts, who originally established his practice in this same location in the early part of 1972. Dr. Ralph Butts established a reputation of providing a high level of personalized service and possessing expertise knowledge in the optometric field. He had a sense of enthusiasm about his profession and a true dedication to his patients that we have vowed to continue to provide to his existing patients as well as our new patients. We hope you and your family will give us the opportunity to serve all of your eye care needs. We are certain you will not be disappointed.


Kelley Mahon

Office Manager
Kelley is our Office Manager, however you will still find her in the back working up patients from time to time. She has been a team member since April 2010. She lives in Arlington with her family after relocating from Arizona in 2006. Kelley was successful in obtaining her certification...

In response to the recent announcement of Governor Abbott’s Executive Order on the mask mandates, we would like to reinforce the importance of mask-wearing in our office as recommended by the CDC and the State and Federal Optometric organizations. All staff members, patients and guests will be required to wear a mask in our office even if vaccinated. Although we have been encouraged by the recent declining COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations as well as increasing vaccinations, it is essential to continue our safety efforts to help stop the spread and reduce transmission as new COVID-19 variants spread across our communities.

Our top priority is the safety of our team members, patients and their families. Thus, we will continue to enforce all of our existing COVID-19 prevention protocols by diligently disinfecting all surfaces, practicing hand hygiene, socially distancing and wearing a mask in the office. We truly appreciate your support and understanding as we protect our employees, patients and communities.
