Founded in the 1980's by Dr. George Martin, Carolina Eye Care has a long history of providing for the eye care needs of the Lake Norman area. The practice was originally started by Dr. Martin in an old farm house located on Catawba Avenue. As the area began to grow, the property was sold to a developer who incorporated the original farm house structure into what is now Lake Norman Plaza. The practice continued in Lake Norman Plaza under the ownership of Dr. Martin until 1992, when it was sold to Dr. Colvin O'Donnell.
From 1992 until 2004, the practice ran under the ownership of Dr. O'Donnell. A collegate All-American swimmer at Clemson, Dr. O'Donnell was know well in the area not only as the local eye doctor, but also as a swim coach at the Mecklenburg Aquatic Center. Under his ownership, the practice showed notable growth as the local population expanded. Dr. O'Donnell was among the first providers in the area to incorporate such technologies as retinal imaging and electronic records. In 2004, Dr. O'Donnell retired, and the practice was sold to Dr. Kevin Lafone.
From 2004 until present, Dr. Lafone has focused on growing the practice by offering the latest in eyecare technology, a comprehensive selection of trendy eye wear, and access to almost every contact lens available in the market today. We offer one stop shopping for all your eye care needs!
