Having the ability to cut your lenses and mount them into a frame allows for quicker turn around time on your new glasses, and no need to send your frame off to the lab.

Say hello to the new you!

We are here for you.

Company Profile

Friendly Staff

Sure, everyone might think they have friendly staff in their office, but we really think we do. We want to make your time here pleasant and have you eager to return.

Prompt Eye Exams and Office Visits

We do not take every insurance in the world.  We have chosen to accept vision and medical plans that allow us to provide you with the expertise and time it takes to provide quality eye care. We do not feel the need to overbook or offer 10 - 15 minute exams to make up for poor reimbursements. As a result, we are not booked weeks or months out and we can get you in quickly. 

Your eye health and vision is important to us.


At Rural Hall Eye Care, we care about your vision, and use the best equipment possible to diagnose your eye-related condition. Whether you need a routine eye health check up, a stronger contact prescription, new glasses, or are interested in laser eye treatment, we can help you. We never cut corners and always do what's best for you and your vision. You can trust that Dr. Nienaber OD and staff will take care of you.

Dr. Nienaber purchased the practice of Mallory Chambliss, OD in 2006.  Our current location has been an optometry office since 1987, when Dr. Chambliss built the building.  We appreciate the people of Rural Hall and the surrounding area for your continued support over the last 30 years.
