Before stepping onto the ice or the baseball diamond, members of the Carolina Hurricanes and the Durham Bulls pay a visit to Eye Care Associates, who have provided top-notch eyeglasses, contact lenses, and eye exams for nearly 35 years. Founded by Dr. Stephen Bolick, the team of vision specialists at the center help rid blurriness from pucks, balls, and signs held by adoring fans. When they’re not gazing into the eyes of athletes, they and their fellow doctors at a network of clinics stay busy correcting the vision of seniors, children, and adults. The company topped Indy Week's 2012 Readers’ Choice poll for best optometrists in the area and received a Standing Ovation award as the best eyecare center in the Triangle in 2012 from readers of Metro Magazine.
Academy Eye Associates is a one-stop shop for patients in need of new glasses. Doctors perform visual exams, testing patients for signs of glaucoma, cataracts, and evil eye. With prescriptions in hand, patients can peruse the clinic’s selection of eyewear or opt for an order of contact lenses. For those who want to forego corrective lenses altogether, the doctors can schedule a laser vision correction surgery.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
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.
Striking a balance between the cosmopolitan classiness of a designer's studio and the warm friendliness of a neighborhood shop, Village Optique’s small, family-run boutique dresses eyes in frames that exude contemporary or traditional fashion. A staff well-versed in the intricacies of ocular styling assists customers from the moment they walk in the door, giving them little time to idly observe the boutique’s purple-hued walls, distinctive wooden chandelier, and collection of psychedelic eye charts. Those who do pause to take in the décor’s understated elegance may find it the perfect complement to an artful selection of eyewear from designers such as Theo, Italy's Jee Vice, Etnia Barcelona, and Boz by J.F. Rey. Frames constructed with durable titanium, stainless steel, and lightweight plastic acetate provide a wealth of options regardless of face shape and personal preference.
