We welcome patients of all ages, from the youngest member of your family to elderly parents or grandparents. We make your vision care a priority to ensure you’re enjoying quality sight.  

Who We Are

Our full-service vision care facility is run by Dr. John Mertzlufft and our dedicated optometry team. We receive both scheduled appointments and eye care emergencies. We offer professional eye care services that are personalized to suit your individual needs. You’ll find our team to be attentive and efficient in meeting your eye care needs. By working with numerous vision insurance providers and offering alternative financing options, we make vision care services a reality for you and your family.

What We Do

Our primary service is providing comprehensive eye health and vision exams to detect irregularities in your eye health and/or vision. Our vision exams test your visual clarity, eye focus, and eye movement to ensure your eyes are working well together as a team. If you have refractive errors in your vision like myopia, farsightedness, or astigmatism, we’ll make sure you get an accurate prescription for eyeglasses or contacts to improve your visual clarity.   

Our eye health exams will uncover signs of hidden diseases that have the potential to cause serious damage to your eyes. By catching these diseases in their early stages, your Tampa optometry specialist can help you manage your symptoms to prevent permanent vision loss.

In addition to comprehensive eye exams, we offer the following eye care services for your family:

  • Management of eye conditions and diseases like glaucoma, dry eye, macular degeneration, cataracts, and more
  • Quality eyewear for your entire family to include the latest in designer frames, high-tech lenses, photochromic lenses, and specialty glasses
  • Contact lenses to suit your prescription and lifestyle to include daily wear soft contacts, rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contacts, extended wear daily contacts, extended wear disposable contacts, mono focal and multi focal contacts, and more. We also perform contact lens exams and fittings to ensure you’re getting the contacts best suited to your prescription.
  • Pre- and post-op care for LASIK surgery to include eye testing to see if you qualify for this procedure, referral to a reputable eye surgeon and post-op follow-up visits to monitor your recovery
