      Dr. Hargrave has been my opthomolagist for over 8 years. She is one of the finest doctors I have ever known, as well as a genuine special individual. She is kind and courteous and caring unlike some doctors. Her staff is superb. This office is run the way all offices should be run. I would put my life in her hands with no hesitation.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Hargrave's Care Philosophy

      At The Hargrave Eye Center, patients are encouraged to actively participate in the decision-making process about their medical treatment.  Ophthalmic conditions/crises can be frightening and patients and their guardians can often feel overwhelmed. Dr. Hargrave works with her patients to dispel anxiety and fear. Together, Dr. Hargrave and her patients can then focus on the ultimate goal: returning patients to wellness.

      The Hargrave Eye Center is a "one-stop" eye-care destination.  Dr. Hargrave realizes that one size does not fit all regarding health care and works together with patients to customize a specific treatment plan for each patient.  With the use of the NextGen Electronic Medical Record, a written customized patient plan is developed at every visit and can be printed and given to the patient before they leave the office.  Use of this system has been shown to improve patient compliance with the medical regimen.

      Medicine is rapidly changing and The Hargrave Eye Center continues to grow with these changes.  Patients play a critical role in their care.  With the adoption of the i-MAC® visual acuity assessment system, The Hargrave Eye Center has incorporated Apple® technology in the assessment of the visual acuity of every patient.  This system is the latest, most modern form of visual acuity assessment.  Thus self-contained system incorporated an Apple® i27 on piece computer monitor system that allows the examiner to rapidly navigate through an infinite number of visual acuity chart combination.  It is also linked to EyeMotion® which have dozens of illustrated ophthalmic videos that explain many common eye conditions in a way that help with understanding.

      Dr. Hargrave says...

      Many patients are referred to The Hargrave Eye Center for surgery.  Dr. Hargrave will spend as much time as needed with the patient to explain the proposed surgical procedure, answer all questions, and try to alleviate any anxiety that the patient may have surrounding the procedure.  

      But no matter who does your surgery, patients must be aware of the surgeon's credentials and training. The surgeon should be willing to discuss the surgery before the procedure.

      The Hargrave Eye Center wants every patient to be informed prior to the surgery, so we've compiled this List of Questions To Ask Your Eye Surgeon: 

      1. Are you the one who performs my entire surgical procedure?
      2. Are you the one who will care for me before, during, and after the procedure?
      3. Regarding cataract surgery, will you explain the different lens implants available and their advantages/disadvantages?
      4. Is this an office that sees thousands of patients and will treat me like a number?
      5. Do you offer comprehensive eyecare or do you just perform LASIK or cataract surgery?
