Personalized Vision Care
It started as a dream of Dr. Michael Bartiss, to provide dedicated, personal eye care to children as well as their entire family. Family Eye Care of the Carolinas opened its doors the fall of 2000 and proudly continues to provide pediatric ophthalmology services and general optometric care to the Sandhills area. We also house a vast optical dispensary that welcomes outside prescriptions.
Family does not just appear in our name; it is how we treat our patients. We enjoy watching little ones grow year to year and love the opportunity to share in the milestones from graduation to retirement. As your vision needs change over the years, we will be here to help you see a bright future.
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We want your visit to our office to be a positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with the excellent, personalized care and service you deserve. Whatever we can do to make your experience with us more comfortable and pleasant, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
We thank you for allowing us to take care of your eye care needs, and look forward to serving you.

We are happy to work with primary medical provider to provide the most comprehensive care you need. If you have any of the above conditions, ask how they can affect your vision and general eye health.
Step 1: Print and place this chart in a handy, well-lighted place (such as your mirror or refrigerator) where you can look at it on a regular basis.
Step 2: If you wear eyeglasses for reading, put them on. If you wear bifocals, use the bottom (reading) portion of the glasses.
Step 3: Stand back from the Amsler Grid so that your face is approximately 12 to 14 inches away from the Grid. Cover your right eye and look at the black dot in the middle of the left grid with your left eye open (with your eye fixated on the black dot). Mark with a pencil any areas where the lines appear missing, broken, crooked or wavy. Also mark any gray or blurred spots.
Step 4: Check your right eye by covering your left eye and looking at the right grid with your right eye open. Mark any problem areas.
Proper use of this Amsler Grid will enable you to detect changes in your vision. If any changes are present and your doctor is not aware of them, call Family Eye Care of the Carolinas (910 692-2020) immediately.
On a regular basis, check each eye to detect any changes. If you notice new areas of distortion, you should contact your eye care provider immediately.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, give us a call right away to schedule an appointment with one of our eye doctors!
