About Us

Welcome to our online Practice! Dr. Sam Thompson is here to care for all of your vision needs. We handle everything from adult and children’s eye exams and hard-to-fit contact lenses, to eye emergencies, treatment of eye diseases and co-management of eye surgery.

Our practice began as Albemarle Eye Center in 1946 by Dr. Keith Wolf. It was located on the second floor of the Hill building in downtown Albemarle. Dr. Wolf built the facility located at 114 West North Street in 1962. Dr. Thompson purchased the practice upon Dr. Wolf’s death in late 1986. He continued to practice there until March of 2013 when he moved the business to the current location in the Centre Point Shopping Center in east Albemarle.

By staying current with the latest developments in eye care, prescription lenses and advances in contact lens technology, our vision center can provide you with the best vision, advice and fit today—and in the years to come.
