Why is Mecklenburg Eye Associates the best choice for eye care? Our patients will be happy to tell you. Please see the reviews and comments from our satisfied patients below:
"As a cornea specialist and eye surgeon, I can appreciate the clinical skills necessary to fit all types of contact lens patients."
However, fitting contact lenses for keratoconus patients is a difficult challenge for any eye doctor. Dr. Raykovicz was able to fit "my" keratoconic eyes with comfortable lenses that provide great vision."

"I look forward to many happy hours of reading and sewing without glasses in the future thanks to Dr. Blotnick."
My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Charles Blotnick at Mecklenburg Eye Associates. Before we moved from Connecticut in 2005 to the Charlotte area, Walt was referred to Dr. Blotnick as the doctor to consult. Walt has been exceptionally pleased with the care and expertise he has received with Dr. Blotnick and has always felt confident that his eyes are in the best hands possible. During the last year I have also consulted with Dr. Blotnick about cataracts. In February I had my right eye done and a multifocal lense inserted. Dr. Blotnick replaced the lense in my left eye on March 14. I am absolutely thrilled with the results - 20/20 in both eyes. Seeing clearly without glasses for the first time in years is like a MIRACLE to me. I am so very grateful to Dr. Blotnick and his wonderful staff. The whole procedure was carefully explained to me along with pre and post-surgical instructions and was done without a hitch. I look forward to many happy hours of reading and sewing without glasses in the future thanks to Dr. Blotnick. I have already recommended him highly to several friends. Just amazing!
"I would now recommend Mecklenburg Eye Associates to anyone I know who has any vision problems, and from now on, I will be a patient and start getting yearly eye exams."
I recently had a bit of an eye-related scare. Today I got something lodged under my eyelid and was briefly afraid it was cigarette ash. I went to a Minute Clinic at the CVS at the Epicenter in uptown Charlotte, and they referred me to Mecklenburg Eye Associates on Randolph Road, in Charlotte, North Carolina.
I would just like to compliment the entire staff there. I have had some horrible experiences with the healthcare industry and am normally terrified of having to go to any doctor for any reason. I even once had a kidney stone and never went to a doctor for it. But I am a librarian and an avid reader, and I don't like to mess around with my eyes. I'd rather lose a leg than my eye sight.
It turned out to not be a big deal, but for a while I was seeing double and my eye wouldn't stop crying. In the end, I felt like I wasted the time of the staff at Mecklenburg Eye Associates as it turned out to not be a big deal. But the staff there from the receptionist to the Dr. Blotnick all made me feel great, made me feel like I shouldn't be worried about the possibility that I was over-reacting or bothering them, and the doctor himself was amazing in both his "bedside manner" and his capabilities and kindness.
I would now recommend Mecklenburg Eye Associates to anyone I know who has any vision problems, and from now on, I will be a patient and start getting yearly eye exams. The doctor was able to figure out what was wrong in very, very quick time, I didn't have to wait long at all, and all the staff were very polite, efficient and kind. And I also felt like my health was the important thing, not money or moving me along like I was on some kind of assembly-line version of healthcare. (So far in life, at 36, that has been my experience with the healthcare industry.)
I could not have been more pleased with the treatment I received and the help I got. I will tell anyone I know for the rest of the time I'm in Charlotte, If you are having eye problems, make an appointment at Mecklenburg Eye Associates on Randolph Road."
"You have lived up to the accolades and reassurances your staff and surgery center personnel gave me."
For the best vision I’ve had since I don’t know when. Nearly 20/20 and still improving.
You have lived up to the accolades and reassurances your staff and surgery center personnel gave me. From the appointment scheduling and being on time, to the preliminary testing, and to your visit, everyone was kind, professional, and right on the mark. And provided with humor. The cataract removals and lens implants were a cinch, about as traumatic as a haircut.
Your appointment staff was very flexible, and you can tell they enjoy working at Mecklenburg Eye Associates.

"Thanks for all you have done to provide this excellent outcome."
It appears that my mother has been fortunate - not only to have early diagnosis of her wet macular degeneration - but also to be so responsive to the Avastin therapy. Thanks for all you have done to provide this excellent outcome.

"Mecklenburg Eye Associates has exceeded our expectations in every way."
When our family moved to Charlotte, we sought eye care professionals who met our high expectations for quality and timeliness of services with a 'personal touch' of caring and thoroughness.
Mecklenburg Eye Associates has exceeded our expectations in every way. Their entire staff has been dedicated to ensuring our complete satisfaction and vision care. They also work diligently for the best outcomes, including LASIK surgery and follow-up, while coordinating closely with our insurance carrier to minimize our costs.
It is my pleasure to enthusiastically endorse the eye care professionals at Mecklenburg Eye Associates.

"I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone who qualifies for laser eye surgery."
My name is Dr. Leona Matl-Belden and I had laser eye surgery by Dr. Blotnick to correct myopia (near-sightedness.)
I just wanted to express my gratitude for all the special care and attention that I had received. It was so comforting to have my Ophthamologist himself see me for all of my pre-operative and post-operative visits. I never felt rushed and my wait time for appointments was very reasonable. Dr. Blotnick answered all of my questions diligently before the procedure. During the procedure, he patiently talked me through every step. After the procedure, he made sure that I would get quality rest and saw me for follow-up promptly.
Since then, I have been seen at regular intervals and have been very pleased with my results. I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone who qualifies for laser eye surgery. It has made my life essentially care-free. Also, not having to touch my eyes with contact lens wear has decreased the chance of eye infections and corneal abrasions. I will continue to see Dr. Blotnick for my yearly ophthalmologist visits. His staff is accommodating and friendly, his schedule is very accessible, and his expertise and bedside manner is superb. Thanks again.

"Dr Blotnick and his staff were always courteous, professional, and accommodating of my schedule....they made it easy."
My name is Louis and to say that my life is active would be an understatement. I have been teaching martial arts for about 12 years now and also teach PE at a Charlotte area pre-kindergarten through eighth grade school. I have worn glasses since ninth grade and struggled with many challenges associated with them, from flinging them off my face while performing a quick movement to crushing them underfoot or in my gym bag. Contacts were no better a solution for me because for one, my days begin about 4:00 am and don't end until after 10:00 pm. Another reason is that one of the martial arts I do involves grappling, and that close contact always dislodged, or often popped them right out. Correctional surgery was not even an option for me with the severity of my astigmatism, or so I thought. That changed with the technology and skill that Dr. Blotnick and his staff presented to me, and now I'm happy to be glasses and contacts free for two years now with 20/15 in both eyes. Dr Blotnick and his staff were always courteous, professional, and accommodating of my schedule....they made it easy.
"Everything went perfectly, there was no pain and now my vision is 20/15....I couldn't be happier with my choice."
When I started searching for a LASIK surgeon, I wanted to find the best one for my only pair of eyes. To me, that meant having an Ophthalmologist perform the initial exam, answer all my questions, do the procedure and follow up with me on any concerns I may have. I found out that this is exactly how Dr. Blotnick at Mecklenburg Eye Associates does it, so I chose him.
That was about one year ago. Everything went perfectly, there was no pain and now my vision is 20/15. I have thrown away my glasses, contact lenses and everything else that goes with it. I couldn't be happier with my choice.
