Dr. Charlene Henderson hails from Newfoundland, Canada. She grew up playing many sports and was a member of the Newfoundland Provincial Women’s Field hockey team. She graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1992 with a BSc and received her doctorate in Optometry from the Illinois College of Optometry in 1996 where she won an award for Clinical Excellence.
After graduation, she moved to Maine with her husband, Dr. William Henderson. They practiced optometry there for 4 years at Poulin Eyecare before settling in Charlotte, NC in 2000. She worked at Charlotte Ophthalmology and then with Dr. Jeff Musler and Associates before opening Blink Eyecare and Eyewear with Dr. Tracy MacIntyre Raykovicz in 2009.
Drs Henderson and MacIntyre Raykovicz were excited to open Sports Vision Carolina in 2013. This is Charlotte’s only center dedicated to testing and training the vision of area athletes, weekend warriors and those wishing to compete at the highest levels.
The Henderson’s are also blessed with 10 year old twin boys. So the family continues their love of sports while traveling from ice rinks, to basketball courts, to ball fields and swim meets. Dr. Henderson also enjoys volunteering at her children’s school and training with the Mecklenburg Master’s Swim association.
