About Us


Founded by Dr Keith Pawlish Jr, Accuvision Dry Eye was set up to meet the need for a specialty clinic to support the Charlotte community dealing with Dry Eye Disease, which although incredibly common worldwide, remains largely undiagnosed and untreated to this day. With a wealth of optometry experience behind the Accuvision Dry Eye team, licensed and certified in a broad spectrum of diagnostics and treatment methods, we believe dry eyes can be a thing of the past.

Mission Statement

We are committed to providing quality personalized care. We utilize the latest technology to determine the underlying cause of your dry eye and use the most up-to-date treatments to give you long term relief.

Led by Dr Keith Pawlish Jr, the Accuvision team has exclusively serviced Charlotte, Matthews, Rock Hill, Concord, Winston Salem, Belmont, Mooresville, Gastonia, and the surrounding areas for the past two decades. Accuvision Eye Care looks after your family’s vision by providing contact lens fittings, comprehensive eye exams and injury treatment. Accuvision Dry Eye is led by Dr. Ruchita Shah who will be diagnosing and managing patients with dry eye conditions.

Dr. Ruchita Shah is a therapeutic optometrist and specializes in dry eye and glaucoma. She is passionate about bringing the latest technology to Charlotte, NC.

She grew up in Austin, Texas and graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Neurobiology. She received her doctorate degree from the University of Houston College of Optometry. During optometry school, she was selected for the university’s Dry Eye Specialty Clinic, which provided her with extensive education and clinical skills to treat and manage dry eye disease.

Upon graduating, she practiced in Austin, Texas where she primarily specialized in fitting specialty contact lenses in addition to managing ocular disease. She specializes in fitting patients with keratoconus and other corneal dystrophies, post-corneal grafts, high astigmatism or large prescriptions in addition to dry eye.
