GREAT NEWS FOR THE PATIENTS OF DR. STEVEN BERNSTORF!

Dr. Bernstorf, Chablis, and Nikki are moving their eye clinic to 1317 N. Elm Street, Suite 4, Parkview Plaza, across from Moses Cone Hospital on January 11, 2020. The Randleman Road office will be closed, except for the glasses side of the building.

This is great news for all of you and for us! We have merged with Groat Eyecare Associates, P.A., which is a well-established eye clinic staffed with four highly skilled eye doctors. We will join Robert Groat, MD; his two sons, Chris Groat, MD and Scott Groat, MD; and Sandy Cohen, MD. I have gotten to know them very well over many years. Robert Groat performed my wife’s cataract surgery with perfect results. Chris Groat has performed all of my patient’s glaucoma operations for the past 4 years. More recently, I have referred many patients to Scott Groat for various problems also. Sandy Cohen is a cornea specialist to whom I refer patients for corneal ulcers, injuries and operations.

I AM NOT RETIRING! This move allows me, Chablis, and Nikki to concentrate on patient care. We will no longer be filing insurance claims and managing a business. I have split my energy between patient care and running the business since 1988, and I am ready to give that up to focus on what I love – patient care.

What will my patients get out of this merger?

- Emergency care from top surgeons

- Three excellent young eye doctors to rely on if I need to cut back as I get older.

- Second opinion and surgery consults across the hall instead of across town.

- Best of all! We will be able to continue with doctor/patient relationships we have established.

- We are very excited about this merger. Please follow us to Groat Eyecare Associates, P.A., and I hope to continue to work with those of you we have known for years.

I am looking forward to seeing each of you in our new location!

Glaucoma Refractive Surgery/Infections/Injuries

At Family Eye Care, we genuinely care for our patients’ wellbeing and we strive to make our office visits simple and stress-free. With same-day appointments for emergency eye care and no tedious forms to complete, it’s no wonder why countless families turn to us for professional vision care and correction.

Glaucoma Diagnosis and Treatmentrefractive surgery consultation

Dr. Bernstorf and Dr. Flaherty have a combined 49 years of experience treating glaucoma. Our diagnostic equipment matches that of most glaucoma surgeons. Most cases of glaucoma are easily treated with prescription eye drops. Early and proper treatment can prevent vision loss. We have a good working relationship with local surgeons for those cases that require surgery.

Infections, Injuries and Diabetes

Infections and injuries can lead to severe vision impairment, and if left untreated, loss of vision entirely. If you've suffered an injury or you've noticed swelling, redness and/or discharge in or around your eye, please contact our office immediately. 
Diabetes is another leading cause of blindness in this country. However, a yearly eye exam can greatly reduce your chances of vision loss.

Treatment for any of these conditions ranges from removing debris from the eye, testing for allergic conjunctivitis, treating bacterial infection, diagnosing sudden onset of floaters and light flashes and identifying any additional issues that could be impairing vision in one or both eyes.

Refractive Surgery Consultation

If you have questions concerning refractive (laser) surgery for myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism, ask an optometrist who has firsthand, personal experience with this life-changing procedure. Dr. Bernstorf underwent laser surgery several years ago, and he has been thoroughly trained to perform the necessary follow-up care by three reputable laser surgery centers.
