Letter to Patients


Dear patient,

I am excited to announce that, effective March 7th 2022, Intracoastal Eye will be joining Wilmington Eye, the area’s largest and most comprehensive ophthalmology practice.

Since our founding in 2015, Intracoastal Eye has focused on offering an unparalleled patient experience to those seeking our care. Through the years, we have grown to be one of the most respected boutique ophthalmology practices in the region. Without the trust of you, our patient, we would not have been able to achieve this. For that, I am sincerely grateful.

Over the years I have worked closely with the physicians and staff of Wilmington Eye, and I know from first-hand experience that we are joining an outstanding organization. I have full confidence that this merger offers the very best platform for us to continue to provide exceptional eye care in our community.

In addition to expanded access to the high-quality care you’ve come to trust over the years, you will also gain access to renowned, board-certified surgical experts that specialize in cataracts, glaucoma, cornea, laser vision correction, pediatrics, and oculoplastics, as well as a dedicated team of medical professionals that support the practice and your healthcare journey.

Our two practices have many similarities that will make this transition seamless for you. We both believe that an exceptional patient experience should be the focal point for everything we do. We are also equally dedicated to incorporating the latest knowledge and technology to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Dr. Kelley and I will continue to see patients at our same Mayfaire office, located at 6740 Rock Spring Road, Suite 100. You can expect the same friendly, personalized atmosphere you have come to know and trust. If you would like to make an appointment or refer someone to us, please call 910.763.3601 or visit wilmingtoneye.com/Make-An-Appointment to schedule online. You can ask for me or Dr. Kelley by name.

If you have questions about this exciting change, please direct them to Kathy Erickson.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership. I look forward to the future, the exciting changes this merger will bring, and the opportunity to continue to serve you.
