About Swift Creek Eye Center

At the Swift Creek Eye Center, Dr. Rebecca Kiraly-Qualls and Dr. Cindy McGarry have been serving the Midlothian, Moseley and Chesterfield communities for over 30 years. They enjoy getting to know their patients as friends and taking time to listen to each of their individual needs. Even after the first visit, people feel so comfortable...like they have already become part of the Swift Creek Eye Center “Family”.

Along with our compassionate staff, we take an integrative and holistic approach to promote good eye health, incorporating patient lifestyle, work and overall health into each customized treatment plan.

Dr. Qualls and Dr. McGarry are extensively involved in community service as well as active members of the American Optometric Association, the Richmond Optometric Association, and two national, invitation-only, optometric groups called the Society of Contact Lens Specialists and the American Society of Eyecare Specialists.

At the Swift Creek Eye Center, our doctors are optometry specialists who provide the most comprehensive eye exams, contact lens consultations and medical eye disease treatment for adults and children. We use the latest digital retina photography to identify early signs of eye disease, like macular degeneration, brain tumors and diabetic related eye disease.

The pediatric eye care services promote preventative care to keep children seeing well for their best scholastic achievement. We use a variety of early intervention and treatments to prevent pediatric eye conditions like strabismus or “lazy eye.” We have a great selection of children’s frames, too!

The Swift Creek Eye Center co-manages patients with Dr. Mark Whitten, who is a world renowned LASIK specialist. He sees patients from all over the world because of his amazing reputation for excellent outcomes.

The Swift Creek Eye Center team is known for personalized attention. We focus on making patients feel valued, comfortable and thrilled about their new eyewear.

Many of our patients have been a part of our Swift Creek “Family” for more than 30 years and we are now enjoying the opportunity of seeing the new generations of their families.

We look forward to meeting you and providing you with the most enjoyable, comprehensive eye exam. Call now to schedule.
