Southern Eyecare Associates
Your Optometrists In Norfolk, Virginia

Welcome to Southern Eyecare Associates, our family-friendly eye care clinic – where we provide patients of all ages with precise and personalized vision services! From babies to golden-agers, we offer everything you need for your eyes and visual system to function optimally. Vision is valuable at all stages of life – and we want to help you maximize your eyes to enjoy all the beauty of life.

Eye Care & Eye Exams In Norfolk

Sharp visual acuity is essential for day-to-day life, and our Norfolk optometrist will evaluate your eyesight thoroughly to issue your detailed vision prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. Do you have a complex vision condition, such as keratoconus or other corneal disorder? We perform precise fittings for scleral lenses to optimize your visual clarity. If you have low vision, we’ll fit you with the most helpful low vision aids and provide comprehensive rehabilitation to help preserve your visual independence and quality of life.

Our independent, full-service practices have both ophthalmologists and optometrists to offer non-surgical and surgical treatments like cataract surgery, as well as strengthen poor vision skills through vision therapy. We also offer myopia control, treat a variety of ocular diseases, help manage diabetes-related vision problems, offer customized specialty lenses and dry eye treatment.

Our Advanced Services

We constantly curate and update our eyewear collection to stay in tune with fashion trends. We help our patients find the latest in frames & lenses, whether they are for protection (like sunglasses), or computer lenses, progressive, or you just need frames to suit your face. We believe that eyewear is more than just a medical device-it can boost confidence while changing your look.

The other night I had an allergic reaction to the fruit I had. I washed the fruit with both soap & water, then peeled the skin off my washed, “Organic” apples and washed my hands before and after eating them. And I can only reason was in an hour or less my right eye started itching and burning so bad it was starting to scare me. So I looked at my right eye and now the owhite around my eye was a blister and that is something I had never seen. So I calle the emergency number and the Dr Dragon answered the phone and CC I was blown away!!!! It’s 2022, doctors have someone else do that. Nope he answered and was so very kind and caring. Told me what he thought was wrong and gave me an appointment for next morning!!! I went to the appointment, saw Dr Dragon and I’m so thankful for all of them in this office, end I highly recommend them to anyone. They are excellent. Thank you!!!
