He has several certifications in specialty contact lenses and myopia management lenses including but not limited to scleral lenses, Synergeyes hybrid lenses, CRT lenses (orthokeratology), and MiSight.

Outside the office, Dr. Boone and his wife have two sons, Collier and Callen. They are active members at Brentwood Baptist Church, and they invite you to join them! Dr. Boone and Jillian enjoy traveling, experiencing culture through local cuisine, and rooting for their favorite college football teams in a house divided. Dr. Boone is an avid Tennessee Volunteers fan, and Jillian is an alumna of The University of Alabama.

A fun fact about Dr. Boone is that his ancestors settled in the area while it was still a part of colonial North Carolina making Dr. Boone the 11th generation of his family to live in the Middle Tennessee area. Some famous relatives include Daniel Boone and William Wallace!
