About Us

Our roots run deep throughout the history of quality eye care in North Carolina. Our history begins with Vonnie M. Hicks Sr., M.D., who received his medical degree in 1918 and joined a small group of physicians in downtown Raleigh in 1922 at the Citizens National bank building on Fayetteville Street. The small practice had an important role in eye care in North Carolina in the early and mid-to-late 1900s and began to grow in size. Vonnie M. Hicks Jr., M.D., who took over his father’s practice in 1952, welcomed William W. Foster, M.D. to join his practice in 1976, and continued the family tradition until his death in 1979. Raleigh Eye Center was founded with the arrival of James W. Kiley, M.D. in 1980 and R. Jeffrey Board, M.D. in 1984.


From the caring staff and eye doctors to the wide range of ophthalmic services and procedures, our eye center is truly dedicated first and foremost to the care of its patients. We take the time to listen to your needs and answer your questions in a clear, complete way. Paired with the skill of our ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians and surgical team, our focus on patient care helps us achieve the best possible results.


Our eye center is committed to maintaining a high standard of care while keeping our costs as low as possible for patients. We accomplish this by performing many ophthalmic tests and procedures in our facility, saving our patients time, expenses and needless travel.
