That’s why her number-one goal is providing excellent vision care for Lowcountry residents. “I believe in a preventive and integrative approach to eye care,” said Dr. Fraser, optometrist and owner of Compass Vision Care in Mount Pleasant. “And while we can provide you with the right glasses, my approach extends beyond vision to include health and wellness education.” For example, Dr. Fraser’s specialty is treating Dry Eye Disease. Though it may sound harmless, Dry Eye is the most common abnormal eye disorder. It can occur when tear glands can’t provide enough lubrication. Left untreated, your eyes can sting or burn. It can also lead to inflammation and damage of the eye’s surface, affecting vision. “Dry Eye affects about 20% of the population, but a lot of people have no idea what the symptoms are,” she said. “In addition to diagnosing your eyes for the condition, we will also discuss various treatment options—if you need them—and create a treatment plan for you, specific to your type of dry eye.” So, the next time you need an eye check, let Dr. Fraser and her team of experts give you a whole new outlook of vision care. “I opened Compass Vision Care in 2018 because I wanted to address the gap I saw between modern vision care and wellness,” she said. “And with us, you get a customized approach to eye health.” Not a Dry Eye in the House Compass Vision Care BY L .
