Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "We love Dr. Bartiss and his team! Excellent care for my babies!"
  • "I actually enjoy coming here. I know that I get the absolute best care possible. I trust Family Eye Care of the Carolinas completely. It's fun to come see the doctors and staff and get the best care as well as have fun and kid around at the same time!"
  • "Dr. Bartiss is absolutely the best pediatric ophthalmologist!! The waiting room has a section for the kids to play in with books and Legos. My daughter started seeing him at just 8 months. He makes sure to talk them through everything he is doing and makes sure the parents understand what is going on. We couldn't ask for a better location for his office or ease of appointment scheduling."
