Routine eye care
Duke eye specialists offer comprehensive ophthalmic evaluation and treatment services, from routine eye exams to urgent eye care. We can help you with your eye care needs, whether you need glasses or you are experiencing a more pressing emergency.
Comprehensive eye care
Routine eye care is important to ensure your eyes maintain optimal health. Periodic exams ensure your vision is at its best, and allows us to diagnose potentially serious conditions at the earliest possible stage. Our eye specialists provide consultations, evaluations, and routine eye exams to children and adults that include refraction for glasses, as well as fitting and management of contact lenses. We can also quickly direct you to specialists if you are interested in laser eye surgery for vision correction, or if glaucoma, cataracts, or another more complex eye concern is detected.
