Eyewear and glasses aren’t just for improved vision; they are part of your style and personality. The Eye Institute is committed to working with a large variety of frame designers, from world-renowned brands to independent retailers.
We stock a variety of frame styles for men, women, teens, and children. Eyewear designers are creating incredible works of art for your best look, even incorporating a variety of materials from lightweight plastic and metal alloys to wood and even buffalo horn. Whether you are seeking something fashion-forward or more traditional, you’ll find it at The Eye Institute.

The Eye Institute launched its own line of eyewear in 2019. Our frames are stylish and high-quality, made from high-grade Italian acetate. We have the collection at each practice so stop by one of our locations to check them out!
TEI Owner Dr. Adam Palo named them Red Birds in honor of his late mother, who used to feed the North Carolina state bird, a Cardinal. As they gathered around the feeder, she would always say, “Look at those red birds.”
Sunglasses aren’t just about style – they’re essential in protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. And sunglasses aren’t just for adults. Studies have shown that 85% of the UV damage done to a person’s eyes occurs before they are 18 years old. We offer many styles of sunglasses, and we can also make prescription lenses for just about any sunglass frame.
Our office can prescribe specialized eyewear to protect your eyes at work or at play. Specialty frames and prescription or non-prescription lenses are available for:
Contact us if you’re ready to find your next pair of glasses, sunglasses, or protective eyewear.
Frames aren’t the only aspect of your glasses that come with options! Our office offers an array of eyeglass lenses to meet individual vision requirements. During your eye consultation, we’ll talk to you about these options and which ones are best for your prescription and lifestyle.

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!
