About Raleigh Eye Center
Raleigh Eye Center is a premier ophthalmology practice made up of experienced and caring medical professionals. For more than 30 years, Raleigh Eye Center has been providing Raleigh-Durham, NC patients a broad range of eye center services including refractive procedures (LASIK surgery), general eye exams, cataract evaluation and treatment, glaucoma treatment and surgery, glasses, contact lens and more!

Raleigh Eye Center's roots run deep in the history of quality eye care in North Carolina. Starting with Vonnie M. Hicks Sr., MD who received his Medical degree in 1918 and began the first medical practice in North Carolina dedicated to ophthalmic care; to Vonnie M. Hicks Jr., MD who took over his father's practice in 1952, welcomed William W. Foster, MD to join him in his practice in 1976, and continued the family tradition until his death in 1979. Soon afterwards the small practice that had such an important part of eye care in North Carolina in the early and mid to late 1900's began to grow in size and became Raleigh Eye Center with the arrival of James W. Kiley, MD in 1980 and R. Jeffrey Board, MD in 1984.
