Home \ Our Eye Doctor

Our eye doctor in Raleigh and Rocky Mount focuses on comprehending how the human eye truly works, in addition to diseases and conditions that impact on your vision - which often do not have clear symptoms. Optometrists understand how age and risk factors impinge on vision over time for all ages, and they know the assets and characteristics of corrective lenses such as eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrist (Dr. Handschumacher) patiently describes the results of your eye evaluation, explains your options and hears your eye care needs. Since maintaining good eye health is a continuing relationship, we encourage you to share your questions as well as your health information, which could prove critical to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision issues.
