We Have 3 Triad Locations to Serve You and Your Family.
Family Focused Eyecare since 1993.
Top 10 Best Reasons to Choose Us
The Triad Eye family consists of dedicated, seasoned professionals who are committed to providing our patients with outstanding care and services. Each of our three locations is staffed with highly skilled doctors, board certified opticians, technicians and office staff. With more than 15 years in operation, many of our team members are treating and serving a second generation of Triad Eye patients. Let our family treat your family.
We invest in the best and latest optical and diagnostic equipment, to ensure that our ocular exams are as sophisticated and accurate as possible. Cirrus HD-OCT (optical coherence tomography) offers the latest in retina and glaucoma diagnostics. Optos retinal imaging gives our doctors the option of examining the retina without dilation.
OPTICAL ARTISTY &
A skilled and knowledgeable staff shepherds the measurement and fit of glasses through the entire production process. To us, it’s an art form. Our opticians and staff know their customers and strive to meet each person’s specific needs. We create glasses specially made for Customer Jones, not Order #276. Patients choose from state-of-the art lenses, including new digital and freeform lenses, which minimize distortion in single-vision and progressive bifocal lenses. And we are just as committed to service after the sale. We invite our customers to stop by any time for free adjustments.
Nothing says “you” more than a pair of great eyeglasses. That’s why we carry designer brands including Banana Republic, Juicy Couture, Kate Spade, Candie’s, Guess, Silhouette, Lilly Pulitzer, Oakley & Ray-Ban, plus kids frames by Ray-Ban and Otis & Piper. Sunglass brands include Oakley, Costa Del Mar, Ray-Ban, Maui Jim & Wiley X. We also offer economy frames to meet every family’s budget. Specialized eyewear includes computer glasses, swimming goggles, and ski and sports glasses. Options include ultra-thin materials, polarized sunglass lenses, anti-glare and scratch-resistant finishes.
Interested in LASIK vision correction? As your primary eyecare provider, we will refer you to a local specialist, and for your convenience, post-operative care can be provided here at our office. For more information on LASIK, please visit: www.tlcvision.com.
We provide eyecare to both adults and children – as young as 6 months old. Some people assume that when they’re an older adult, or qualify for Medicare, they must go to an eye surgeon for an eye examination. Likewise, many parents think their children receive complete eyecare from their pediatrician. Truth is, we can provide most of the diagnostic services and treatments you’ll need at ANY age!
& EASY PARKING
We realize that for many people medical office visits can be stressful. That’s why each Triad Eye location has been designed to be warm, inviting and relaxing. From the comfortable seating in each lobby, to soothing light levels and soft music, your experience at Triad Eye will be stress-free. And all Triad Eye locations have easy access to ample parking just steps away from the front door.
It is a privilege to provide care to all of our patients. Everyone is treated with kindness, respect and gratitude for entrusting us with their eyecare. At Triad Eye, you’re not a number in a tray – you’re a VIP. You won’t get lost in the shuffle or crushed by a crowd on the way to a BOGO sale. We are “people people” who love our jobs and our patients, and it shows.
WE DON'T SELL
We don’t sell baloney, or tires, or TVs. We are dedicated medical professionals who believe that your vision is too important to entrust to a Big Box chain. We prove that to our patients every day and have earned their trust. So, when you need a barrel of BBQ sauce, go to the giant warehouse store. But visit us for the best eyecare in the Triad.
