Why Choose Good Looks?
No Wait: We do NOT double book patients and we do NOT schedule 10 minute eye exams. We stagger our eye exams every 30 minutes to allow for any medical eye problems that may need additional time to evaluate. We monitor our patient wait time very carefully. Last year the average wait time was less than 5 minutes from the scheduled appointment. We pride ourselves on promptness especially if you are wanting an eye exam during your lunch hour.
Bling Without the Sting: Because we carry many of the world’s top fashion eyewear, we cater to those patients who want the absolute best in prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. We know that not everyone can afford to buy the glasses the movie stars wear, so we carry several selections of frames that are more economically priced and yet are unique to Raleigh, NC. This way you can have something different from what you find at the retail chain stores, but still be competitively priced.
Personal Care: You want the same eye doctors and same opticians year after year. The doctors at Good Looks are the same doctors since our inception in 2013. We are a family business in the true sense of the word. When you call, you know us, and we know you. If you don’t want to take our word for it, read our Google Reviews. We carry one of the highest star ratings with Google in Raleigh, NC.
Why Choose Good Looks: Good Looks was nominated in the top 4 optometric practices for 2016 in the Best of the Triangle by Indy Week. With so many retail, private, and commercial practices located throughout Raleigh, Cary, Durham, and Chapel Hill, it is indeed an honor to be recognized as one of the best practices in 2016. We appreciate all those who voted for us.
Affordable Eye Exams: Most people have eye insurance to cover their eye exams. That is wonderful and we take most insurances. Unfortunately, not everyone has health insurance and we do not want you to postpone your eye exam because you cannot afford care. Good Looks offers two types of eye evaluations that can meet your budget. Simply call our office for the prices. We can cater our services to provide your entire family with their vision needs.
Unique Fashion Frames: We have the largest section of frame board displayed eyeglasses in Raleigh with over 1,000 eyeglass frames. We hand-pick every frame and do not purchase any frame in bulk. We also do not buy mass merchandiser frames you find at big box retailers. Many of our frames come from Paris, France and Milan, Italy. You are unique. We are unique. Your eyewear should be unique.

Q: How do I know if I have Computer Vision Syndrome?
So many of us work on a computer screen for part of or maybe all of our professional day. Then, we come home and may continue looking at screens on our phones, iPads, or e-readers. No wonder so many of us experience computer vision syndrome and may not even realize it.
What is computer vision syndrome (CVS)? Common symptoms are blurred vision during or immediately after screen use, headaches, eye strain, dry eyes, and neck and shoulder pain. These symptoms worsen with prolonged screen use, poor lighting, glare, and uncorrected vision problems. They also usually improve after we’ve stopped looking at our screens for prolonged periods.
If you experience what you think is CVS, your first step is to schedule an appointment with your optometrist for a comprehensive vision and eye health exam.
Additional solutions are to position your monitor slightly below eye level and at a distance of 20-28 inches from your eyes.
Eliminate sources of glare on your screen, and invest in a non-glare screen or treatment on your glasses.
Also, remember to blink, and mind the 20/20 rule: every 20 minutes, look away into the distance for 20 seconds or more.
