Committed to local businesses like May Eye Care

Posted on Aug 16, 2021

When people need help with their vision, they trust Dr. Carl May. When Dr. May needs help making his business vision a reality, he trusts ACNB Bank.

Our local team of bankers and lenders understand the community and are committed to local businesses like May Eye Care.

Every business has a story, this one you have to see for yourself.

The delicate side of cutting edge

The human eye measures about 1 inch across, weighs around a quarter of an ounce, and has over 2 million working parts. The only organ more complex than the eye is the brain.

May Eye Care provides a full range of laser, surgical, and medical services for taking care of our eyes. They use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to help people see better. Their team was the first in central Pennsylvania to offer advanced technologies and imaging like WaveScan for LASIK.

“We are always staying on the cutting edge of eye surgical technology,” said Dr. May. “We recently launched the laser used for cataract surgery and have added all the latest equipment to give patients outstanding vision after cataract and Lasik.”

May Eye Care relies on ACNB for help

Seeing the community banking difference

With complex needs both for facilities and equipment, Dr. May knows the team at ACNB Bank and lender Merle Zehr are committed to him.

“ACNB has been an outstanding asset for my practice,” said Dr. May. “I choose a local bank because of the level of service I receive. It is so nice to talk one-on-one with someone local who can get things done quickly so we can continue to grow.”

And as a local business owner, Dr. May knows the importance of having the right people to turn to when the unexpected happens.

“ACNB has been a major part of keeping May Eye Care open and functioning during the hard COVID times. Merle has gone above and beyond to make sure my needs are met as far as loans and lines of credit, which are essential to keep a small business thriving. The level of care and concern was something I’ve never seen in a bank before.”

Looking back and ahead at May Eye Care

Dr. May began his ophthalmology career in Hanover, PA in 1994 and started his own practice in 2001.

“I love interacting with patients and providing much needed eye care to the community. It’s always fun providing medical care here.”

There are now more than 20 people on the team working to provide excellent care. And Dr. May sees his practice continuing to grow in the next few years.

“Working with the Bank, I see May Eye Care continuing to grow, adding new doctors, and expanding into other offices and communities. We want to add sub-specialties and become an eye facility that provides complete eye care in all sub-specialties.”

His advice to new business owners is to “have a plan, start slow and small, and as the business grows, allow it to expand.”

From loans to build a state-of-the-art facility to day-to-day banking needs, our team of community bankers is here for you. Every business has a story, ACNB Bank can help with your next chapter.
