Rocky Mount Eye is pleased to offer SPOT vision screening to our patients. SPOT is a breakthrough vision-screening device that detects the potential of:
Nearsightedness Farsightedness Astigmatism
Unequal Pupil Size Eye Misalignment Unequal Refractive Power
SPOT quickly and easily detects vision issues across all age groups. It requires minimal cooperation making it ideal for young children. The SPOT device is held about 3 feet from the patient and obtains the measurements in about 5 seconds.

When you come to see our caring and skilled retina specialist you should expect your visit to take about 3 hours. During your visit we may perform multiple tests, which include: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), Flourescein Angiography (FA), and Fundus Photos. Each of theses tests will be performed by one of our highly trained technicians. Patients requiring treatment are typically treated in the office on the same day as their appointment. Procedures we perform in the office include: Intravitreal Avastin Injections, Intravitreal Kenalog Injections, Intravitreal Eylea Injections, Posterior Subtenon Kenalog Injections, Intravitreal Antibiotic Injections and multiple laser procedures to treat various retina conditions. Patients needing surgical procedures can typically be seen both pre and post operatively in our Rocky Mount office, however, they must travel to UNC-Chapel Hill for their surgery. Retina surgery is an outpatient procedure and generally no overnight stay in the hospital is required.

Rocky Mount Eye provides services for everyone in the family including contact lenses, routine vision care and the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases.
Vision problems and ocular disease can occur at any age. Our offices are staffed and equipped to handle the needs of all ages from infants to senior citizens. We recommend that kids have their first complete exam by age four or sooner if problems are suspected by the parent or pediatrician.
As children's eyes grow, their focusing abilities may change which accounts for the frequent eyeglass prescription changes in adolescents. Vision tends to stabilize in the mid - twenties, but as patients get a little older, their risk for eye disease increases. For these reasons, we recommend complete eye examinations for all family members at least every year or two.
