ELIZABETH CITY, N.C., May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Albemarle Eye Center is proud to announce its recent merger with Edenton Eye Care and Outer Banks Eye Care, where the two practices will now combine for a total of six locations throughout northeastern North Carolina.
By bringing these two locations into the Albemarle Eye Center brand, the Edenton location will now be open full-time. Additionally, patients can request appointments easily at any of the convenient Albemarle Eye Center locations, and all medical records can easily transfer between offices.
Current patients can continue to expect the same services and level of care they received for more than 30 years, and now can receive the additional expertise of renowned ophthalmologists, Dr. Jitendra Swarup and Dr. Peter Mitrev. Dr. Swarup is eastern North Carolina's leading laser cataract surgeon, and Dr. Mitrev is a board-certified, fellowship trained glaucoma specialist. Also, the Outer Banks location is adding a new Optometrist, Nicholas E. Bem, OD.
"This is going to be a natural progression for both practices," says Dr. William Blakemore, owner of Edenton and Outer Banks Eye Care, of the merger. "We're going to maintain the same expertise in Edenton and the Outer Banks that we have provided for years, with the addition of some other specialty services for these communities."
Albemarle Eye Center provides expert LenSx surgery for the treatment of cataracts, lens replacement, glaucoma and other eye conditions at each of their locations in northeastern North Carolina. Each office also includes Optometry services, so patients can receive comprehensive eye care from one practice.
