At our clinic, you'll find our Opthalmologist and Optometrists who are passionate about your eye health and answering your questions. They'll take time to address your concerns no matter how big or how small.

 

We Offer Quality Vision Care Services

We believe that the best way to achieve healthy vision is through a comprehensive approach. Our Optometrists are leaders in the field and provide complete primary eye care including complete eye exams and treatment of the full spectrum of ocular disease. Our Ophthalmologist focuses on the most advanced and effective surgical treatments to treat eye disease and enhance your vision to its fullest potential.

Diagnosing Eye Issues and Diseases

Your vision is very important and we recommend that you schedule regular vision check-ups to maintain proper eye health. Scheduling regular appointments can help diagnose conditions such as:

  • Macular degeneration
  • Glaucoma
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Dry eyes
  • Cataracts
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
Maintaining Healthy Vision

Your vision is precious. You rely on your eyes constantly throughout every day. Do you ever feel that your vision is blurry? Do your eyes get tired? Let our doctors examine your eyes and determine the best solutions to the common vision issues that reduce your vision. Some of these include:

  1. Astigmatism
  2. Myopia
  3. Hyperopia
  4. Presbyopia

Even if your vision isn't bothering you, we recommend that you keep regular appointments to maintain good eye health. We'll be able to catch the early onset of eye diseases.

Vision Care Products

We offer a wide array of vision care products and teach patients how to benefit their vision. Our lenses, contacts, and frames promote better vision and add style to your modern wardrobe. We work with you to select the best frame and size for your face and tastes. Also, we’ll help you find one that's comfortable and make adjustments if needed.

Call Us Today For An Eye Exam

We invite you to call Coastal Vision Center and schedule an appointment with one of our optometrists or ophthalmologist today. Let our experienced doctors get to know you so we can give your vision the best of care. We look forward to meeting you.

I can't say enough good things about this entire office and staff! We were on vacation and my daughter had an ant in her eye and experienced severe swelling. We called in a panic at 4 p.m. and the front office was so nice and accommodating and said they could see her that day. When we arrived, we were greeted by a caring front office staff and there was little waiting time before she was examined by the doctor and medical staff and given a prescription that worked like a charm! From start to finish, everyone was friendly and professional. We are truly thankful for the care she received and would highly recommend Coastal Vision Center.read more

Dr. Herron is the BEST!! My husband had an irritation in his eye & Dr Herron found a microscopic piece of grey eyelash embedded in it & removed it. She just did not give up until she could find out what was irritating his eye

Professional service and staff. I have been twice with different doctors and both were very thorough and efficient. The wait was a little long the second visit, but the place was buzzing, so very understandable. Eyeglass frames are a bit expensive as most are at any optician outside of Walmart, but I don't mind paying a little more for higher quality and better fashion.

I am so pleased with Dr Stackhouse and the entire staff at Coastal Vision Center. Everyone is friendly, welcoming, professional and helpful. I have always been seen on time, everything explained as we go through the eye exams and solutions are recommended. Everything is done efficiently and easily. And I want to mention that everyone was friendly and personable. They made me feel comfortable about a procedure I needed and their knowledge and professionalism made it easy to trust that all would be well. Indeed all is well...and my eyesight is 20/20 again. I will definitely be seeing these great folks again for my yearly check up.read more

Dr McClane rocks! He is the perfect doc, quick at figuring out what is going on gives excellent care, it’s kind focused, professional and he has a really great staff. His associate, and intern on ophthalmology was stellar, I hope he keeps her! They have a fabulous assortment of glasses they are not pushy and reasonably priced. Now if only they would open up the swimming pool to patients… lol! Great group recommend them highly
