We all love the personalized experience of a boutique-style business. Compass Vision Care in Mount Pleasant offers this experience to all their customers. Dr. Betsy Fraser is the owner and solo optometrist at the practice, and she has loved every minute since its opening five years ago.
Aside from her years at Clemson University and Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, this full-time working mom has spent all her life in the Lowcountry and has the desire to serve its residents. Dr. Fraser works diligently to ensure that her practice is family-friendly by taking the time to provide one-on-one attention to each patient. Compass Vision Care serves every member of the family beginning at six months, with tailored plans of care for each individual patient. This practice takes the time to ensure that patient concerns are heard and to not rush through the care process. They strive for an unmatched patient experience that provides state-of-the-art services for all eye treatments.
Dr. Fraser is particularly proud of her dry eye treatments. These treatments can include tempsure envi radio frequency, which treats dry eyes by stimulating clogged tear glands and intense pulsed light therapy, (ICON IPL) which minimizes pro-inflammatory vessels in the eyelids. Both treatments are non-invasive and do not have any downtime, allowing patients to return to their daily routines immediately.
In addition to Dr. Fraser’s effective dry eye treatments, Compass Vision Care specializes in comprehensive eye wellness exams, optomap retinal imaging, pediatric eye exams, digital eye health and anti-aging eye care. They also provide eyeglasses, contact lenses and a terrific selection of sunglasses.
A specific service that sets Dr. Fraser apart from other optometrists is the offering of pediatric eye exams. Having two young children of her own, she has the knowledge, patience and gentleness needed to make her youngest patients feel comfortable during an eye exam. With all patients, including youths, she relies on peer-reviewed research when prescribing treatments and solutions.
Another state-of-the-art service utilized at Compass Vision Care is Optomap Retinal Imaging. This option used during an exam allows for in-depth, multilayered views of the eye to look for a variety of health conditions. It is fast, easy and comfortable; it does not require dilation. During these annual visits, patient care is of the utmost importance and Dr. Fraser and her highly skilled team work tirelessly to ensure that one-on-one, boutique-style care is given to all.
Dr. Fraser spoke in length about her passion for eye wellness and servicing the Lowcountry. She is most proud of her “customized treatment plan” that she offers to all patients, along with the relationships that she can build with families by being their primary eye care provider. Reach out to Compass Vision Care today for all your eye care needs and concerns. The highest level of care is clear to see.
