About Guilford Eye Center: Trusted Eye Care Since 1966
For years, the Guilford Eye Center has been providing top-notch eye care products and services, addressing various eye health issues to ensure customers achieve their best vision possible. As an eye doctor, it has always been our aim to offer the best level of customer service and it will continue to be so for the years to come.
Guilford Eye Center had a humble start, founded in 1966 in a small house along Friendly Avenue by Dr. Gene Bates. He operated the practice in a modest office for years before moving his business to the Quaker Village Shopping Center.
From there, Dr. Bates provided the Greensboro community with top-notch eye care for more than 35 years, although the practice did switch ownership in 2000. To help Dr. Bates ease into retirement and reduce his workload, Dr. Craig Wood bought the practice.
In 2001, Drs. Wood and Sherman and Rhonda Thurmond entered into an agreement, deciding it would be a great idea to merge their practices. The Thurmonds had settled into the Greensboro area back in 1992 and had been operating in two locations: one on Friendly Avenue and another at the old Carolina Circle Mall.
Since the merger, Guilford Eye Center had become the premier choice for anyone looking for the best eye care in the Guilford College community.
