If you are looking to get updated on your own eye exam or find a place that provides pediatric eye exams, Carolina Vision Care located in Greenville, NC is the right place to go. Our optometrists provide exams for both eyeglasses and contact lenses, and we are also trained to notice the signs of many eye diseases and disorders in order to identify if a problem exists and further treatment is needed.
Carolina Vision Care is located in Greenville, but we have and accept patients from all of Pitt County including Farmville, Winterville, and Ayden in order to provide the comprehensive eye care that the whole family needs.
While needing eyeglasses is not a prerequisite for seeing one of our optometrists, it is a good place to be if it turns out that you do. Whether you want an extra pair of sunglasses, or you require glasses for every day you'll be pleased with our selection of designer frames as well as practical and affordable styles that are a great fit for you or your child.
Although your child may receive vision screening at school, a comprehensive eye exam at Carolina Vision Center provides a complete look into what is going on with your child's eye health and vision needs with our pediatric eye exams. By offering eye exams that are tailored to your child's age and their unique vision needs we can identify common childhood eye problems such as lazy eye or being cross-eyed or early signs of nearsightedness or farsightedness. When caught early, damage caused by this condition can often be minimized. With our methods, we can identify these issues even in babies and toddlers with minimal communication skills and can help lead your child into a lifetime of taking good care of their eyes.
Having good eyes means more than having good vision. While childhood can bring on problems like Lazy Eye, also known as amblyopia, and strabismus (crossed or misaligned eyes), there are other problems that can begin in adults such as diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, or glaucoma. Whatever your age, our optometrists at Carolina Vision Care are trained to identify these issues, often long before you notice symptoms yourself. In many cases, early detection is a vital component of catching eye diseases and disorders early while treatment can be prescribed to either slow or prevent long-term vision problems, including blindness.
While eyeglasses are necessary for some patients, more and more people with vision problems are able to turn to contact lenses in order to correct their vision. Our contact lens exams are designed to determine what type of contact lenses are best for your eyes and lifestyle, whether they are daily lenses or extended wear. We also carry contact lenses for more hard to fit patients, such as those with astigmatism or dry eye issues. If you've been told you aren't a candidate for contacts in the past, there's a chance that new developments in contact lenses will allow you to comfortably wear contacts more often. In addition, we also know that a child's first pair of contacts is often a momentous occasion. Our optometrists are here to advise and help you determine whether your child is ready to take that step from glasses to contacts.
Whatever your eye health issues are in your family, whether that means small corrections or large ones, at Carolina Vision Care located in Greenville, NC we are here to help you make the right decisions about eye and vision health for you and your family.
