If you have been recently diagnosed with glaucoma or suspect that you might have it, you may be curious about the optic nerve, the primary tissue that the disease targets. Learn more about the optic nerve and its function below.


Your Raleigh NC eye doctor may recommend that you get your eyes dilated. Eye dilation is a procedure that involves using eye drops in order to keep the eyes open. This procedure not only diagnoses eye conditions, but it can also be used to diagnose health problems. This includes things such as high blood pressure and diabetes.


Raleigh Eye Center is happy to share our new website with you! We hope that you take advantage of all the helpful information it presents about our LASIK surgery, cataract surgery, glaucoma treatment, pediatric eye care and other eye care services. As always, feel free to contact our eye doctors with your questions or to schedule an appointment at one of our two eye center locations.


Now that Captain Marvel has hit theaters, longtime Marvel fans finally know what happened to Nick Fury’s eye. In the interest of avoiding spoilers, we’ll be vague: Someone or something scratched it. In ophthalmology terms, Fury suffered a corneal abrasion, or an injury to the surface of the eye. Below is more information about corneal abrasions and how to prevent them, whether or not you’re planning on fighting aliens this year.


Dry eyes is a common problem. It can be caused by dry air, cold weather, the natural aging process and certain medical conditions. It can cause irritation and blurry vision. The good news is that there are several tips to help dry eyes that you can use.


In all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, taking care of your eyes might have fallen to the back of your mind. That’s why we’re sending out a friendly year-end reminder to take a good look at (pun intended) your vision insurance before the year runs out. We would hate it if you let vision insurance benefits which you and/or your employer have already paid for go to waste! 


If you wear contact lenses, you may have resigned yourself to a life spent rolling out of bed, late for work, but not able to leave until you’ve spend a few precious seconds putting in your contacts. If you’ve opted for glasses, you may have come to accept that you’ll be forever losing, re-cleaning, and accidentally-stepping-on your frames.


Deciding to have LASIK on your eyes is a big decision. For obvious reasons, most patients are nervous the day of their procedure. This is often when post operative instructions are given to the patient. Over the years we have heard how difficult it can be to remember the post operative instructions that are given. Knowing how to properly care for your eyes following LASIK is extremely important. Here are some guidelines to help you get the best outcome possible.


Keeping your vision healthy is important for functioning in your daily life. When you have a full schedule and cannot visit your Raleigh NC eye doctor, you can conduct your own home vision test.


When your optometrist examines the back of your eyes for signs of damage, he or she will use a device called an ophthalmoscope to shine a bright light into your eyes. You may have worried that this light is dangerous to your eye health. Here is everything you need to know about the optician’s light and its effects.
