About Us

Our Practice

Parkside Eye Care is an independent optometry office owned by a husband and wife optometrist team. We provide comprehensive optometric services in West Cary to patients of all ages, including young children and seniors. Parkside Eye Care serves the residents of Cary, Morrisville, Research Triangle Park (RTP), Durham, Apex, Chapel Hill, Pittsboro and Raleigh. In addition to our medical services, we have a beautiful optical boutique with all the latest luxury and designer glasses and sunglasses plus premium lenses. Parkside Eye Care also has an optical lab on site for patient convenience and quicker turnaround times for your glasses orders and is great for those who need their glasses in a hurry! We sell contact lenses in-office and offer free shipping on all year supplies for your convenience.

Our story is a simple one. With the increasing number of corporate-owned optometric chains, we wanted to create a traditional patient-centered optometry practice with a high-end modern flair. Our goal is to treat you like family and give you an exceptional eye care experience. After moving from Southpoint area in Durham back to Cary in 2015, Dr. Reynon and Dr. Ma decided this would be the perfect place to work and raise a family- thus Parkside Eye Care was born.

The office is conveniently located in the beautiful Parkside Town Commons shopping center in West Cary (near the intersection of Hwy 55 and 540). We are so excited to serve your family and all your visual needs.
