Welcome To Cary Family Eye Care

Cary Family Eye Care is a family-owned, independent eye care practice located in West Cary, NC. We are not a chain- we have been part of the local community in Cary since 2008. The office is owned by husband and wife optometrists Dr. Dwight Barnes and Dr. Kelly Barnes.

At Cary Family Eye Care, we recognize that every patient has unique needs. Our doctors and staff share a commitment to understand your lifestyle needs to make sure we provide the best possible vision for you and your family. From the newest designs in progressive lenses to the best contact lens technology, you can trust that our doctors and staff will work with you to provide the best options for your needs.
Our office features a large selection of designer frames and sunglass styles to fit every budget, and utilizes the latest technology in digital lens design to provide the best possible vision. Our knowledgeable and friendly optical staff will work with you to make sure you “look great and see great”. Through the “I Care & Share” Program, for every pair of glasses we sell, we donate a pair to someone in need.

Our Myopia Control Clinic is dedicated to fighting the increasing prevalence of myopia, or nearsightedness, especially among young children. Most parents are not aware that there are options available to slow or stop the worsening of childhood myopia. Through Overnight Sight we’ve managed to provide clear vision without glasses or daytime contacts to hundreds of our young patients, while at the same time stabilizing their vision. Ask us how this technology can benefit your child.



Very thorough examination and explanation of process. Staff was attentive and adhering to strict COVID protocols from beginning to end. Dr. Barnes spends a good deal of time with the patient answering questions and exploring options. Has been my optometrist office from Day 1 when they opened in Cary. Local business who understands the community and patients of NC. 5 stars for white-glove experience.

I had a wonderful experience at this location! The staff was so friendly and helpful with everyone I interacted with. Communication was straightforward before, during, and after my appointment, and the office was clean and very proactive in minding covid precautions.

Dr. Dwight and Dr. Kelly are wonderful Doctors. Very thorough and friendly. After seeing Dr. Dwight I learned so much about the health of my eyes and how important it is to take care of them, with minor tweaks in my everyday living, as small as wearing polarized/ UV protection sunglasses to help protect my eyes from harmful blue rays. The optical floor had so many Amazing choices of frames to choose from I couldn’t leave with just one. The optical team help maximize my insurance and offered amazing deals to help get me the frames and lenses I needed to keep my eyes healthy and vision in tack. I’d recommend Cary Family Eye Care to any and EVERYONE. They are a wonderful go to practice that can assist with all your vision and eye health needs. They deserve beyond 5 stars if you ask me!
