Drs. Frank & Judy Spaeth

Founders of Brighwood Eye Center

Brightwood Eye Center has a distinguished history of

providing the highest level of care to our community


BRIGHTWOOD EYE CENTER began in 2004 when Drs. Frank and Judy Spaeth opened the doors to their first practice in Guilford county.  Previously, they had practiced in several locations throughout Alamance county and had earned a reputation for their excellent care and family-friendly service.  These same qualities are what made Brightwood Eye Center so well-received.  In 2015, after 40 years of providing high quality eyecare to generations of loyal patients, the Spaeths handed the reins to Dr. Neill Bulakowski, an optometrist they trusted to follow their vision for the future of Brightwood Eye Center. 

Healthy Eyes, Happy Patients


At BRIGHTWOOD EYE CENTER we care about our patients!  Our goal is to provide the highest level of eye care products and services in a family-friendly atmosphere where you are more than just another number.  We strive to make each client feel valued and understood.  We will listen closely to your needs and make every effort to meet them to your satisfaction.
