Family, friends and patients of Drs. Basden, Eagan, Hadley and Pate gathered at Basden Eye Care's second location on May 12th for a Ribbon Cutting and time of fellowship to to celebrate the opening of Basden Eye Care at Moores Mill.
Mayor Pro Tem for the City of Auburn and AU Cheerleading Alumni, Ron Anders, was on hand to officiate the ribbon cutting along with Auburn Chamber staff members Lolly Steiner, Stephanie Calhoun, Jennifer Fincher and Anna Hovey. Family and friends in attendance enjoyed tours of the state-of-the-art facility, viewed the advanced eye care technology available for patients and enjoyed light refreshments in the designer frames boutique.
Current and new patients can now schedule their regular eye exams with their regular doctor at either location: our newest location at 2272 Moores Mill Road or the original office at 780 North Dean Road.
A very special "thank you" to everyone who attended the ribbon cutting. We are excited about the future!

The doctors and staff of Basden EyeCare are excited to welcome Dr. Rob Pate to the practice. Dr. Pate, his wife, Dana, and their five children return home to the Auburn community where Rob was a four year starter and All Conference safety for the Auburn Tigers from 1997-2000. He served his patients for eight years at EyeCare Associates in Hoover before joining Basden EyeCare.
“Dana and I are ecstatic to be returning to Auburn,” commented Dr. Pate. “This is where our marriage began and we’re so excited to have the opportunity to raise our family here and become integral members of this community.”
Dr. Pate was named the Young Optometrist of the Year in 2013 by the Alabama Optometric Association and in 2014 he was awarded the same honor nationally by the American Optometric Association. In early 2015 he was named the Young Optometrist of the South by the Southern Council of Optometrists. Dr. Pate serves the profession at the state level as the rising Vice President of the Alabama Optometric Association, as well as Chairman of the Alabama Special Olympics’ Opening Eyes program and Chairman and speaker for the InfantSEE program. He serves nationally on the state government relations committee of the American Optometric Association. Dr. Pate sees patients of all ages and especially enjoys challenging contact lens cases and dry eye patients.
“To be able to add someone like Rob to an already exceptional group of doctors is a real blessing,” said Dr. Brett Basden. “Our practice has experienced tremendous growth over the last six years and the addition of someone like Dr. Pate will allow us to serve more patients in the community than ever before.”
Dr. Pate is currently accepting new patients at 780 N. Dean Road in Auburn and Basden EyeCare has recently announced extended hours on Fridays as well as lunch time appointments each weekday. More information can be found at www.BasdenEyeCare.com or by calling the office at (334) 887-6621.
