Our Ballantyne and Rea Farms offices are now open for patient care.


We have a heavy call volume and we encourage you to Text (704) 943-5110 to request your appointment.


  • When you call for your appointment, our guest services people will direct you to our patient portal which is part of the updated computer system. It will allow you to update any of your information and have access to your records or message us with any needs.
  • When you arrive, our concierge will meet you at the front door and will:
    • Ask you our brief COVID questions.
    • Check your temperature. If over 100 on 3 consecutive checks, we will ask you to reschedule for another day. Please understand that we would rather see you but want
    • Allow you to sanitize your hands.
    • Sign into your appointment on our iPad.
  • We will ask that you come alone to your appointment unless others with you also have an appointment. Those that are care-givers or parents of minors may accompany them.
  • All of our staff will be checking their temperatures every morning and we will be cleaning between every patient throughout the day. They will have to answer the same COVID questions daily.
  • If you have a mask, please bring it with you. We have some on order and will be happy to provide them now and in the future if you do not have one already. Our staff will all be wearing masks.
  • We have specific patient care hours for anyone who is more at risk for contacting COVID. Just ask about these times when making your appointment.
  • Once the concierge has you ready, our technician will take you for pre-testing to include the Optomap retinal imaging. We have decided to provide as much of our exam as possible with the least amount of touch to provide comfort and safety. The Optomap also allows for the best possible description of your retina. The charge for this service has been reduced from $39 to $34 since we are making this a part of our examination process going forward.
  • For those that visit our optical boutique, our frame stylists will guide you through the process and use their expertise to find just the right style and fit for your face!

We will continue this mode of care as long as it is necessary to continue to keep you, our staff and our community safe and comfortable. At Carolinas Vision Group, we care how you see us!

All of our best to you and yours,

The Doctors and Staff of Carolinas Vision Group

Hey CVG Friends and Family!

Charlotte eye doctor Riley Stahl

Welcom Dr. Riley Stahl to CVG!

We have some big announcements this week about our doctors. We are sad to see Dr Watt go but excited for him in his new adventures! Here is what he has to say:

“I want to thank you all for allowing me to care for you and your families over the last year. It has been an absolute privilege and wonderful experience at CVG, but after some exciting life changes in my personal life including an engagement I will be moving up to the Lake Norman area to be closer to family! I will definitely miss you all and the fantastic team at CVG! Thank you again, and I wish each and every one of you continued health and success in the future!

Sincerely, Dr. Michael J. Watt”

We are really excited to introduce Dr Riley Stahl to all of you! Dr Metz-Clayton and I searched through many very qualified candidates before we both agreed that Dr. Stahl is a perfect fit! Here is an introduction to her. We have been bragging to Dr Stahl about how incredible our patients are so if you get a moment, stop by our Facebook page and just say hi to her! We cannot wait for you to meet her!

“Dr. Knudson and his staff were terrific.”

“Everything was done in a timely and professional manner. I drive all the way from The Lake Wylie area every year because I trust Dr. Knudson to give me top notch service.”

 – Thomas H.

Came in to pick out a frame for my daughter. Right away we were greeted with friendly hellos from multiple staff. We were helped selecting the best frames for her, and that says alot as she is very indecisive. They took the time and patience to help her pick a frame is is excited to wear. Thank you!

Another great appointment. I love this place! Everyone is always so friendly and wiling to answer all of my questions. Thanks to all of the staff.
Barbara K
My experience and daughter’s experience was the best!! Dr. Knudson is so knowledgeable and friendly and makes you feel so comfortable.
Kathleen E
Excellent staff and doctor service and performance. Even when checking out they went out of their way to make it faster and easier. Dr. Knudson is very competent, thorough and personable.
Mark O
Everyone at Carolinas Vision is extremely nice and professional! My husband and myself both had appointments on the same day and they were able to take care of both our needs from exams to glasses very efficiently! This was my first vision appointment in 20 years and I was surprised by how easy it was and how high tech this office is. The selection of glasses is great (lots of designers to chose from!) and everything is displayed nicely in a very clean environment. We will be back!
