At Eye Care Center-Ballantyne, you’ll be tested by qualified optometrists with years of experience in their field. This ensures your eye exams are accurate in evaluating your eye health and visual acuity. If you show signs of vision refractions, we’ll make sure you receive a precise eyeglass prescription to provide you with optimal vision.

If you prefer contact lenses, we’ll give you a separate contact lens exam to get an accurate reading for contact lenses. This exam will also determine if you’re a good candidate for contacts and what type of contact lens would be best suited for you.

We offer a wide range of quality prescription eyewear and contact lenses to suit your personal taste, budget and lifestyle, making it easy to find just what you need.

LASIK surgery offers an alternative to eyeglasses and contacts in correcting refractive errors. If you’re interested in this procedure, we offer pre- and post-op testing and care for LASIK to help you fully benefit from this treatment.
