Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hargrave "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."
