Doctors Kirsten Albrecht and Catherine Earl of Southern Eyes interrogate ocular orbs with eye exams and outfit struggling eyes with high-tech lenses. The 45–60 minute appointment can diagnose common eye problems including glaucoma and cataracts and uncover underlying causes of vision loss, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or backward ski masks. Most exams involve dilating drops, but they can be circumvented with cutting-edge digital Optomap Retinal exams (a $39 additional fee). After the exam, eyeballs get the assist from cutting-edge ocular technology, such as shatterproof polycarbonate lenses—which use some of the thinnest high-index materials available—and Varilux progressive lenses that mask the telltale signs of bifocals, preventing civilians from guessing your alter-ego's true age.
Captained by 21-year dental practice veteran Dr. John T. Walsh, the Dentistry of the Carolinas network of multispecialty dentists performs a full range of services, with some locations providing cosmetic whitening and dental implants. Their backgrounds in dental surgery enable them to expertly handle root canals and extractions, and their knowledge of Invisalign orthodontia helps them inconspicuously straighten out wayward teeth without metal braces or barks from a boot-camp drill sergeant. The team also performs a range of basic services, including routine cleanings that free teeth of hardened tartar and plaque, fillings, root canals, extractions, dentures and partials. Customers can contact their desired location for a full list of services.
Dr. Candace Cole, D.D.S., may have extensive dental experience from her time serving as a dentist for the United States Navy, but it’s her ingrained sense of Southern hospitality that makes her clients feel most comfortable. Since returning from deployment in Iraq, she has only continued her training in orthodontics, TMJ dysfunction, and implant dentistry. All of this informs her practice at Smilestones Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, where she also performs teeth whitening and general dental procedures such as routine cleanigns, sealants, wisdom-teeth removal, crowns, and bridges.
