Following high school, Dr. Braswell enlisted in the Army and served his time there as a Special Forces Medic. This exposed him to a variety of medical specialties and sparked an interest in health care as a career. He attended NC State University as a pre-med student and discovered Optometry as a goal to pursue. After graduating from Southern College of Optometry in 1991 he returned to North Carolina. Dr. Braswell has practiced in Rocky Mount since 1992. Rocky Mount and the EyeCareCenter has been an excellent place to practice medical optometry.
Away from the office; Dr. Braswell is an avid bicycle rider and tennis player. During a break between college and optometry school he completed a 5000 mile cross country bicycle trip.
