Welcome to Seashore Eyecare in Exmore, Virginia
Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care. But seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams with your eye doctor whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp as many eye diseases are painless but can significantly and permanently affect your vision.
Seashore Eyecare was founded over 30 years ago by Dr. Raymond and over the years, Seashore Eyecare has evolved into what is today, a comprehensive eyecare center for all residents of the Eastern Shore Region of Virginia.
Headed by Dr. Alan Wagner & Dr. Kapil Kapoor, Seashore Eyecare provides all types of eyecare from prescription glasses, contact lenses, cataract surgeries, to the management of complex medical and surgical eye diseases.

Ask Dr. Alan L. Wagner a Question...
A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy. More about Dry Eyes...
There are a wide range of treatments ranging from over the counter products to specialty laser procedures. Many times using artificial tears and vitamin supplements can help boost the tear film. There are prescription eye drops that can aid in tear production as well as laser procedures for patients with more advanced dry eye. More about Dry Eyes...
Of course – stay hydrated and making sure you consume enough water each day. Additionally, take breaks from your computer and smart phone. I recommend the 20/20/20 Rule – take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away and blink your eyes. Finally, wearing sunglasses is critical to protecting the surface of the eye and the eyelids from UV exposure. More about Dry Eyes...
