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 optometrist or other eye care professional whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp.

Seashore Eyecare was founded in July 2007, when Dr. Catherine Love Turlington purchased the practice from Dr. Raymond. Dr. Turlington grew up on the Eastern Shore, went to Virginia Tech for her undergraduate Nutritional Studies degree and then optometry school in Florida. Dr. Turlington returned to the Eastern Shore to practice in 1994 after completing her Doctorate of Optometry degree. She has always believed in looking at the big picture when it comes to your eye health, so we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history and your vision needs.

Dr. Turlington is an optometrist who knows that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses or contact lens fitting, treatment for eye disease (such as glaucoma or macular degeneration), eye surgery (such as LASIK or cataract surgery), or help with low vision devices, our optometrists will provide you with the best care, advice, options and follow up.

Our Seashore Eyecare optometry office is located in downtown Exmore Virginia on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Schedule an appointment to see how we can help you get the best prescription for your eyes.

Ask Dr. Catherine Love Turlington a Question...

What is the examination like to determine if someone has dry eyes?

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...

What are the typical treatments for 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...

Are there any recommendations to help people avoid dry eye?

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...
