Dr. Kelly performed PRK (laser corrective surgery) on both of my eyes about six weeks ago. I opted for the procedure in hopes of freeing myself from contacts lenses and glasses. While nervous at first, Dr. Kelly, his partner Dr. Smolenyak and their staff made me confident that I had a good chance of eliminating my need for corrective eye wear. I elected to proceed with the surgery and the results were amazing! I'm 20/15 (better than 20/20) with both eyes. I was pretty blurry at first and had some mild to moderate irritation/ tearing for a couple days. It was totally worth it. I see better now than I ever did with my contacts. The hardest part of the whole experience has been getting used to NOT putting in/ taking out my contacts. What a fun habit that has been to break. Dr. Kelly and his team were informative, reassuring and professional throughout my evaluation, procedure and post-operative appointments. Thanks so much.

I always dread going to the eye doctor for my yearly examine due to the dilation of my eyes and the wait time. I have to say that this was a very good experience. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable and took the time to explain each test that was being done. The office is very nice and relaxing and the waiting time was not as bad as I had expected. Dr Dahringer has a very good bedside manner and that is important this day in time. He was eager to listen to the changes that had occured in the past year with my vision. He took time to explained everything to me so that I would understand why the changes were occuring. I would recommend him to my family and friends. When it comes time for cataract surgery Dr Dahringer is the one for me. The office has great parking and easy access which is a plus.
I have been going to Dr. Nancy Mackowsky for over eight years now. Besides her being professional, amazing, and awesome, and she know the latest knowledge and techniques when comes to eye care both in vision, contact lenses and behavioral. . Furthermore, she had done some tremendous work with patients who have had visual problems. All I know is for years, I had many visual problems that I was not aware of and she was able to help me better myself through vision therapy. . In the meanwhile, due to the fact that I had some visual issues that I was born with and overtime I was able to work the problem and was able to bring my visual up to par. Thanks Dr. Mackowsky.
I have been a patient of the Kelly Eye Center for years (5+). the staff is amazing, caring, attentive and highly skilled. Dr. Kelly is likewise a terrific physician, very caring, takes time to discuss all queries and concerns and is very relaxed which helps patients relax in frequently difficult situations. Waiting times, a frequent complaint with physicians, seem non-existent -- arrive, sit down and get called in immediately. In addition the on-site glasses providing department is very competent, completive price-wise, finds discounts through insurance, and gets complicated prescriptions right the first time.
Overall, the visit was very good. Although I had an appointment twice and on both occasions I still had to sit an extra 20-30 minutes waiting to be seen. I know they offer walk-in service, however, I don't think appointments should run that far behind when they're trying to balance walk-ins versus appointments. That's WHY I set an appointment...to keep to my personal schedule. That aside, they accept the major vision insurances, are very professional and knowledgeable and they work very good in conjunction with LensCrafters (I'll be buying a pair of 'backup glasses' in addition to my contacts. I'd highly recommend!
I was fortunate to find Byrum Opticians many years ago when I moved to this area. I've worn glasses (or contacts) since elementary school, and seeing sharp images is critical to my occupation. I've shyed away from chains and discount stores that seemed to treat me more like a mass consumer and less like an individual. The staff is knowledgeable, personal, and professional. They provide small town personalized and caring service in a large city. If they don't carry the design you are looking for in stock, they will glady order it for you and at a fair and competitive price!
Amazing experience! The staff was extremely professional, helpful and friendly. The prices are unbeatable! Ive never had such a positive experience. I had lost my glasses, and had to go out of town. I need glasses to drive. I would of had to wait 7-9 days before my new glasses would be in. The optometrist took my new glasses and put lens in the same day to hold me over until my prescription lens arrived. He saved the day. I called and got an appointment immediately. I can't say enough how great they are and I recommend them more than words can express! Thank-you Team
After getting laid off from my job, I lost my vision insurance. I discovered that Eye Deals would work with you on prices, and a regular eye exam was very afforadable. I did not go over my budget, even after purchacing a designer frame. The customer service here was outstanding, everyone there was polite and willing to work with me. I would recommend this doctors to anyone looking for a great deal.
5 stars are not enough. Don't let anyone else work on your eyes. If you want the absolute best primary eye care in the Raleigh area, this is the place. I cannot give this highly expert family high enough praise. I promise that this father and two brother team are just as concerned about your vision as they would be a member of their own family.
I had a very pleasant experience with my son today at their store. Previously, I was loyal to Sears Optical, but found the Eye Care Center surpasses them in all areas. The employees were friendly and accommodating and the prices were very reasonable. I would recommend them again without a doubt.
