In 1954, Dr. Rocky Stroud opened his first eyecare practice in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Though he might not have known at the time, decades later, his venture would transform into Eye Care Center—an ocular health system that, today, serves its patients at 50 clinics spread throughout North and South Carolina.
At each location, teams of skilled optometrists and opticians check vision during routine eye exams for children and adults, perform Optomap retinal examinations, and push eyes that have just seen a really great deal on sandals back into place. The doctors also treat ocular diseases ranging from glaucoma and diabetes-related issues to general infections.
Plus, Eye Care Center outfits clients with designer frames from brands such as Burberry, DKNY, and Ray-Ban, soft and gas-permeable contact lenses by Acuvue and FreshLook, and prescription transitional and polarized sunglasses.
