Reoccuring Optometry Annoyance

Background: I live in a fairly small town. We only have one optometrist, and wouldn't you know it, he's the only one my insurance covers within this or the three surrounding towns. I despise this man. Not only is he the only optometrist in town, he's also head of the town's chapter of the Lion's Club, and he has...something to do with the Board of Education. (This is important.) My father's been going to him for years because Dad's on the verge of glaucoma, and I started going to him when my eyesight started to deteriorate when I was in my freshman year of high school. I haven't had any problems with him until I graduated though, because my mother had always taken me beforehand, and he's a bit afraid of her. (She's very intimidating.) After I moved in with my father, got my drivers license, and started attending my appointments alone, he evidently could no longer hold back his opinions.
