Eye Doctors and Eye Surgeons in Carolina Shores

Wilmington Eye is known for an uncommonly focused approach to patient care, including a team of board-certified ophthalmologists, highly trained optometrists, and skilled opticians working together to provide comprehensive vision care. The same is true for our Carolina Shores team. At the helm of this location’s daily practice is Dr. Jill Greene, offering a wide range of expertise exceeding beyond primary and preventative care. Her specialties include the diagnosis and medical treatment of ocular diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, in addition to post-operative LASIK and cataract care.

Patients can also be seen by one of our board-certified ophthalmic surgeons, Dr. Robert van der Vaart and Dr. Samantha Watson. Both providers specialize in advanced, blade-free cataract surgery, implantation of premium intraocular lenses, and minimally invasive surgical procedures for glaucoma. Patients can also have surgical consults for oculoplastic procedures, like eyelid lifts, or cosmetic procedures such as skin resurfacing, dermal fillers and injectables, with Dr. Molly Orban, board-certified oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon.

Why Our Carolina Shores Location Is Unique

As we continue to grow and work towards expanding access to advanced vision care, there are a few unique factors about this location that help us provide such optimal care with a small, yet dedicated team! To accommodate our specialized team of dedicated providers and support staff, our Carolina Shores office closes daily for lunch from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m., except on Fridays when we close at 2:00 p.m. Often, doctors will still see patients later Fridays for pre-schedule appointments, depending on availability. We also welcome walk-ins. Regardless of these unique hours, patients can still reach a Wilmington Eye team member outside of business hours by contacting our main line at 910-763-3601.

Our team always strives to make vision care as convenient and accessible as possible for our patients. At our Carolina Shores office, patients can receive the full scope of Wilmington Eye’s advanced vision care locally!
