At Optic Gallery Family Eye Care we maintain a vision practice covering all types of eye care including computer assisted eye exams, the diagnosis, treatment and management of ocular disease, co-management of ocular surgeries such as cataracts and LASIK, eye emergencies, as well as fitting all types of soft, toric and rigid gas permeable contact lenses, as well as specialty contact lenses. Whether you need a routine comprehensive eye exam or a medical eye exam for conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, Dr. Merhi will make sure that you receive the highest level of care each step of the way.

At Optic Gallery Family Eye Care, our purpose is to serve our patients by providing them with the most thorough eye examinations and the best optical products available. We strive to provide the best customer service as we welcome you into our family.


Dr. Eva Merhi, O.D. is a board certified optometric physician practicing since 2004. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Florida Atlantic University in 1999 and received her Doctorate in Optometry from the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico in 2004. During her education she was a member of VOSH International, a volunteer organization that provides eye care to people in need in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Her connection with this organization resonated deeply and so from 2002-2003 she became the president of this organization where she successfully organized and led more than 15 missions, traveling to the Dominican Republic and Vieques.

Dr. Merhi is fluent in Spanish and Lebanese, and conversational in French. She pride’s herself in being able to communicate “clearly” with patients from different backgrounds and with different needs.

Efraim Ortiz has been an Optician for over 18 years. He started his career working in the laboratory making and cutting lenses. His “behind the scenes” experience has provided him with vast knowledge regarding lens designs, materials, and frame selection. This is proven by an extremely high rate of patient satisfaction all due to his meticulous approach. Efraim will take time and care in making sure that each patient receives the correct materials for their individual needs, keeping in mind that not all eyes are the same and not everyone can wear the same lens design.

Mr. Ortiz and Dr. Merhi have called Myrtle Beach home since 2007, and are proud to be raising their daughter here.
