UNC Eye Care Center Relocating on August 21

On August 21, UNC Eye Care Center will open its doors to provide care to patients at its new location, off Interstate 40, exit 273A, across from the Mardi Gras Bowling Center near the intersection of State Road 54 and Farrington Road.

With this move, UNC Eye Care Center will merge the services currently provided at the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) and UNC Eye at Chapel Hill North locations.  Patients will experience the same world class eye care with a hometown touch that they've always known, now in a new and more convenient location that features free parking.

This location will be the new home of the Kittner Eye Center, UNC Optical Shop, and UNC Hospitals Macular Treatment Center. The UNC Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery has been located on the first floor of this same building since October 2012. The faculty and staff at UNC Eye Care Center can’t wait for their patients to experience their vision for the future of eye care.
