“For those who may not know this used to be Four Eyes, but other than the name nothing has changed! Dr. Dryer and her team are a blessing! I never feel rushed through an appointment and feel like she truly listens and modifies the next steps based on my personal needs. Her team is very respondent and active in helping me with contact orders or getting in with an emergent appointment when necessary. Great selection of frames for everyone. I highly recommend you visit her!” – Erin L.

REVIEWS:

“Dr. Watt was very kind and informative. He answered all of my questions (there were a lot) patiently and wanted to be sure I had the best understanding of what was being recommended to me. I believe the associate I was placed with to select frames with was Beth, and she too was very patient with my scattered decision-making process on frames. I will be maintaining my eyes care with Carolinas Vision Group and would recommend giving them a call.” – Chrystal B.
