Type:Duke University Hospital Outpatient Department, Specialty Clinic
*Hospital-based clinics are an extension of Duke Health hospitals and have additional facility charges. Some insurance companies process bills with a deductible and coinsurance rather than as a co-pay as for an office visit. This may impact the amount of the bill you are responsible for after payment from your insurance plan. Check with your insurance company before your visit to determine what your responsibility will be.

Duke Eye Center offers comprehensive eye care services in the Durham area. Our goal is to provide excellent care, personalized to your needs.
