Everyone was super friendly. Appointment was right on time and everything moved like clockwork – no waiting and shuffling between different pieces of equipment and procedures. I was impressed with the thoroughness and knowledge of the doctors and staff.

Friendly and Helpful


I was very impressed from the moment I stepped in the door. There was a very small wait and one of the staff came in line to let me start the paperwork. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They use the best/most up to date technology and everything ran like a well oiled machine. Dr. Mitchell was easy to talk to and answered every question I had with sincerity. I am very happy with my visit and decision to switch here!

Patient and Caring


I was really impressed by the exam I received at Blacksburg Eye Associates. The doctors are always patient and caring, taking the time needed to explain things and never rushing the process. The lady in Optical was great, she showed me the new Maui Jim glasses (not sunglasses) and how they are the only place in the area that carries this line. I ended up getting a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses during the visit as well. I have been in glasses/contacts most of my life and have been to many places in the past and no place comes close to being as awesome as Blacksburg Eye.

We have noticed increased attention at school, improved handwriting, and a significant improvement in his grades.

It is amazing how much more energy our son has after school!

We are so grateful for the individual attention and care, our family received during our son’s vision testing and therapy.

The progress made during those 12 weeks of therapy is astounding! Our son jumped 5 reading levels from the end of second grade to the start of third grade!

Now, she is an overall enthusiastic student, and I believe the strategies she has learned in her time at Blacksburg Eye Associates/Vision Plus have aided in this confidence and enthusiasm.

My son recently completed 12 sessions of vision therapy, in addition to vision homework, and has been very successful. His performance in school has improved significantly.

Scleral Lens Patient Testimonial

dry eye postThis patient had scarring and a wound that wouldn’t heal from an infection. After spending 3-4 months between different doctors trying to get treatment, they were nearly going to send her for surgery at Duke.

Before that happened, she came to see Dr Dovie, and we were able to get things stable, referred her to Dr. Melchione who put a scleral lens on her, and, well, her review says it all.

"For the 1st time in months my eye feels normal! Thank you Dr. Dovie and Dr. Melchione at Blacksburg Eye Associates for knowing the technology to heal my eye."
