What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr Shenk and her staff are excellent. I totally recommend them. They are very professional, friendly and extremely thorough. My family all go here for eye care and we are all impressed by their customer service and care. They go the extra mile.Beverley W.3/11/2020
Great experience! I was in and out very quickly. Dr. Shenk was very friendly, and she very clearly explained to me how I can protect my eyes from screens and blue light. Overall, an excellent optometry office!Karle S.2/19/2020
Started going to Wake Family Eye Care for dry eyes. They have several treatment options, including lasers. They communicate extremely well and offer you appropriate optional treatments. Over the years I had built up a lot of anxiety due to my dry eye syndrome. But both Doctors have been very helpful and Valerie has made me feel very comfortable during the procedure. I definitely recommend them for their knowledge, experience and more importantly, because they treat you like family.cathy T.1/28/2020
Dr Badwan is very personable and knowledgeable! I have a difficult Rx and he has managed it spot on! Angie was a huge help in picking out frames as well as the rest of the staff that piped in with their much needed and welcomed opinions! So happy to have a great Eye Care Center!John R.1/10/2020
I had a fantastic first visit to Wake Family Eye Care this week! All of their staff and office members were personable, helpful and professional. I had a very thorough eye exam. I have worn contacts for 20 years and assumed I was seeing as clearly as possible; however, Dr. Badwan adjusted my prescription considerably, and I am seeing more clearly than I ever have! He was very thorough and patient in explaining the change in prescription to me. I highly recommend this practice to anyone who has recently moved to Cary or who is looking for a change in doctors!Katie d.12/15/2019
