This was my first true eye exam, and Dr. Powell and the staff at Academy Eye Associates made it a very easy and enjoyable experience for me. Not only did I find out a lot of information that I had come looking for, but also discovered what had caused a depth perception problem that I've had most of my life. I would not only return to their office for any future needs, but would highly recommend them for any other patients. They are very professional, thorough and friendly.

My experience is always positive at Academy Eye Associates in Durham, from the moment I make my appointment and am greeted by name to the time I spend with Dr. Powell, who conducts a thorough exam, explains things clearly, and answers any questions I may have. This is a small office where everyone is friendly and offers a personal touch.

A wonderful experience and Dr. Powell was not only personable but also was very respectful of my time -- I was seen promptly with minimal waiting time and she was extremely efficient. I have found a new eye doctor!

Academy Eye Associates is a wonderful place to receive eye care. Dr. Powell is a fabulous clinician.......she is smart, fun, skilled, and engaging. She obviously knows her stuff and is a pleasure to see for my annual visit. Sharon and the rest of the gang are awesome as well. I actually look forward to my annual exam because I know I will be well cared for, but will also have an enjoyable, upbeat visit with a lovely group of people. Thank you Academy Eye Associates! You guys are the BEST!

Dr. Powell has just the right mix of professionalism, humor, and compassion. She is thorough in her explanations, provides sound advice, and takes my concerns seriously. What I like most about her practice is the no pressure atmosphere. Although her practice sells high quality lenses, she doesn't pressure you to buy them. I have been a patient for three years and will continue to use her.
