Adult and Pediatric eye examinations;

Since 1973, Chapel Hill Ophthalmology Clinic has been dedicated to providing the highest level of professional medical skill and technological advances in eye care to the residents of Chapel Hill and surrounding communities. General Ophthalmology care has been the cornerstone of Chapel Hill Ophthalmology since its inception. Our physicians, Dr. John H. Wood and Dr. Carmen Foster McLean, have acquired specialized training and brought that expertise to Chapel Hill. Both physicians provide sub-specialty and comprehensive eye care.

As trained medical doctors, our ophthalmologists are best able to recognize the full range of eye-related problems and treat them with the best available medical and surgical treatment modalities. Modern medicine has improved our ability to detect and treat ocular disorders; from prescribing corrective lenses to detecting complex disorders.

Our staff consists of ophthalmologists, board-certified in adult and pediatric ophthalmic specialties, licensed opticians, and JCAHPO-certified support staff, allowing us to provide the highest quality, comprehensive eye care for patients’ convenience.
