We HIGHLY recommend this practice!

Tonight, my wife was working in the garage when she got something in her eye. It was very painful and, after unsuccessfully trying to rinse it out with water, I did a web search for eye doctors that offer emergency after hours service. I found Triangle Eye Care and called the number. I listened to the after-hours message, selected the after hours service prompt and I was connected directly to Dr. Prajapati. As I described that she was experiencing sharp pain, he suggested that we meet at his office.

It took us 10 minutes to get there and Dr. Prajapati was already waiting for us. We have never met and we are not one of his regular patients but he took my wife in immediately. After numbing her eye, he was able to locate a small metal shard that was literally buried in her eye. Within minutes, he was able to remove it. And, although it was late and night and the DUKE / CAROLINA game was coming up, he took the time to show my wife the images and provide clear instruction on how to take care of the eye for the next couple of days.

We HIGHLY recommend Dr. Prajapati. We are very grateful to have found him.

Based on recent guidelines from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the AOA (American Optometric Association) and the North Carolina Board of Optometry, Triangle Family Eye Care will close starting Monday, March 30th.

We will be open for glasses and contact lens pick up only the week of March 22nd. Doctor Prajapati will not be seeing any patients unless it’s an ocular emergency.

Ocular emergencies may be any of the following symptoms: redness/eye pain, sudden loss of vision (central or peripheral), trauma to the eye, contact lens-related eye pain.

We will keep you posted as to when our office will reopen as this is a fluid situation.

Thank you, Dr. Prajapati and staff at TFEC
