About Heritage Eye Care

Dr. Dan Yoakum, Dr. Blair Stone, and Dr. Aleshia Luu are the leading providers of quality vision care products and personalized optometric services in Wake Forest.

In 2005, Dan Yoakum opened Heritage Eye Care when he saw a need in Wake Forest for a private optometry practice that specialized in creating an individual experience for each patient based on their ocular and visual needs.  Rather than rushing the patient through their eye exam, our doctors and staff strive to spend time with each patient to determine an accurate diagnosis, a perfect prescription for glasses and contacts, and assist them in the selection of quality eyewear.

In our mission to provide the best eye care services possible, Dr. Dan Yoakum, Dr. Blair Stone, and Dr. Aleshia Luu use only the most advanced, state-of-the-art diagnostic technology and eye care products available. We are committed to educating our patients and providing personalized eye care services to the people of Wake Forest. At Heritage Eye Care, you will find eye care professionals who genuinely care about your health and are dedicated to providing exceptional personal service to everyone who walks through our door.  We pride ourselves in being the friendliest and most hospitable optometry clinic in Wake Forest.

The staff at Heritage Eye Care is excellent. Everyone is very warm and friendly. Being new to the are and a first time patient, Dr. Luu took the necessary time to talk with me an conduct a very thorough exam.

Dr. Stone is the best eye doctor I have seen. I have vision impairment and she is quite knowledgeable on all aspects of my issues. She takes the time to answer questions thoroughly. The opticians (I’ve dealt with Courtney and Marie) are excellent.

Dr. Yoakum is simply the best. Very thorough and thoughtful. Everyone in the practice is very friendly and professional. Courtney is the most knowledgeable optician I have ever had with helping to choose frames and fitting glasses. I highly recommend Dr. Yoakum and this practice.
