‘People’ key to success for Carolina Eye Care | Lincoln Times-News


When a business can successfully provide quality services to a community for nearly four decades, there are generally many factors contributing to that success. Carolina Eye Care, founded by Dr. David Curtis, who is also a member of the North Carolina Senate for District 44, boasts two locations, one in Lincolnton and another in Denver, where a new facility was opened in 2013.

“I think that our success lies in the people. Not just in our people but the patients that we serve,” said Dr. Matt Motteler. “We take pride in encouraging our employees to continue their education and we pass that knowledge on to our patients.”

Motteler, a native of Washington, North Carolina, graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2002 with Bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and biology. In 2006, he graduated with honors from the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Optometry.

Motteler is a partner in the business alongside Dr. Scott Nishek. The duo has taken the reins of the firm as Curtis has taken a step back to pursue other interests. While still working at the firm on a part-time basis, Curtis has been active in missionary work, making nearly 50 medical mission trips and, along with his students, treating more than 100,000 patients in third world countries.
In 2001, the Lincolnton clinic was built and Nishek was tabbed to build that business and establish a foundation to serve the community. Nishek attended high school in Iredell County and achieved his bachelor’s degree from Appalachian State and then his doctorate of optometry, with clinical honors, from Pennsylvania College of Optometry.

With the new facility in Denver adding about 2,000 square feet to accommodate the growing business, Motteler believes that the added space is essential. With developments in the Denver area like Rivercross and Trilogy drawing people to eastern Lincoln County, the firm saw an opportunity to expand.

“We can now accommodate three doctors in that location without having to expand. We were very intentional in purchasing land that would allow us to expand even further when that need arises,” Motteler said.
