In 2017 Dr. Palo noticed a demand for comprehensive eye care in downtown Raleigh. While walking through Seaboard Station, he saw a space for lease. After living in and falling in love with the area, he brought the idea of expanding downtown to his partner, Dr. Poirier.
In October 2017, they opened their second clinic at 111 Seaboard Ave., where they provide a convenient location for an eye care practice to offer exceptional clinical care and a curated selection of eyewear products. At this time, the partners decided that they also needed a name change that would reflect the expanded reach of their original Knightdale clinic.
Thus was born The Eye Institute, with the second location in their growing eye care business at Seaboard Station. Dr. Palo began spending most of his clinical time at Seaboard and is now there full time as the clinic has grown, and the locals soon learned of this location and his devotion to patient care. Let’s just say that as downtown Raleigh continues to evolve, The Eye Institute at Seaboard Station is right there with their local community!
Excellent service, doctor and front desk staff. Also an excellent and very stylish selection of eyewear for the entire family.
I highly recommend!
I left feeling as if I was valued, and that my money was being well spent on something I wanted to spend it on — not something I felt pressured into thinking I needed. The eye exam was by far one of the most involved and well explained I have ever experienced. I was pleasantly surprised the that the Dr. was present the whole time, my questions were answered with thought and not once did I get the standard, "I would not be too concerned " response. It was always a clear interest to make sure I was understanding the technical as well as the results of his answer.
After many many years here...I am still happy to have my annual exam, glasses, contact lenses, and other services for my family here. LOVE this place and the atmosphere with knowledgeable and friendly staff. I highly recommend!
TEI's team has always been courteous, friendly, and calls about the exam. I've been going for years to one in Knightdale, NC and would not switch unless they close which, hopefully, they never will!
I had been coming here for years and I’m always greeted by friendly staff! They know most of my family and remember our life stories when we come. It never feels like I’m the eye doctor, it feels like family.
I loved everyone at the Eye Institute. I got in pretty quick, they were very thorough and everyone had a great attitude. Thanks, Eye Institute!!
Dr. Chad Morgan has provided me with proactive, strategic care and exceptional long-term advice about my eye care for more than 5 years. I trust him completely and know he has a full understanding of my health and the new treatment options for my care. I simply wouldn't entrust my eyes to anyone else!
Good customer service. Tiffany was very helpful in helping me pick out my new eyewear. Dr. Chad is friendly and proactive...I appreciate both!
