Is any sense more important than your vision? Not to the eye doctors at The Florida Eye Clinic. Your vision is our priority and our mission is that we help you see with your personal best vision.
The Florida Eye Clinic was founded in 1973. At that time, it consisted of one ophthalmologist practicing in a small office in Altamonte Springs. During the past five decades, Florida Eye Clinic has grown to include ophthalmologists and optometrists practicing in 10 locations across Central Florida, from Clermont to Winter Springs, from Kissimmee to Orange City. Our main office, in Altamonte Springs, is a 30,000 square foot building which also houses a state-of-the-art Ambulatory Surgical Center with three operating suites.
Blurred vision refers to a lack of sharpness of vision resulting in the inability to see fine detail. Blurred vision may result from abnormalities such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, or astigmatism that can be improved with corrective lenses (eyeglasses) or it may signal the presence of eye disease.
Dry eye occurs when the eyes produce too few tears or the tears evaporate too fast. The condition can affect one or both eyes. Lifestyle changes can help, but in severe cases, a person may need medication or surgery.
A drooping eyelid is also called ptosis or blepharoptosis. In this condition, the border of the upper eyelid falls to a lower position than normal. In severe cases, the drooping eyelid can cover all or part of the pupil and interfere with vision.
As we grow older, our night vision worsens. We have fewer rods (light-sensitive cells in our eyes that distinguish between light and dark) to detect objects in low light and our eyes' lenses become stiffer and cloudier. Other conditions such as astigmatism can also make it difficult to see at night, affecting peripheral vision and depth perception and worsening glare.
Halos are bright circles that surround a light source, like headlights. Glare is light that enters your eye and interferes with your vision. Halos often show up when you're in a dim or dark place. Glare is more likely in the daytime. They're a normal response to bright lights, but deeper problems can also bring them on.
Astigmatism is a common type of refractive error. It means that some part of your eye (either the cornea or lens) is more curved than it should be. This altered eye shape makes your vision blurry. Most cases of astigmatism can be treated with corrective lenses like eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a very common vision disorder that is usually diagnosed before age 20. Myopia affects your distance vision. You can see objects that are near well, but have trouble viewing objects that are far, such as grocery store aisle markers or road signs.
Inability to see objects clearly from a close distance can be the result of a few conditions. A common vision condition that causes blurry vision up close is called hyperopia, or farsightedness. Farsightedness is typically the result of a flat cornea or short eyeball, which causes light to focus indirectly on the retina.
If you have cataracts, then you have some important decisions to make prior to your surgery. There are new premium lens options that can reduce or even eliminate your need to wear glasses after cataract surgery. At Florida Eye Clinic we offer a customized practice experience where you are not rushed, and time is taken to provide the overall best possible cataract surgery experience.Learn More About Cataract Surgery
"The Florida Eye Clinic is a very clean and pleasant medical office. On any of my visits I have never had a wait timer longer than 15 minutes. I had cataract with lens replacement surgery and am thrilled with the results. I received superb care throughout the procedure and in the post op office visits. I would not trust anyone else with my eyes."
"I have been going to Florida Eye Clinic in Altamonte for 30 years. Dr. Pappas and Dr. Xavier are top notch and happy to answer all questions. I have had several surgeries there and they treat you like you are the most important patient there. I trust them with my eye care and health."
