Our board-certified Dr. Mary Del Campo is an active member of the American Optometric Association and the Northeast Florida Optometric Association. She earned a bachelor's degree in Zoology from the University of Gainesville, FL and her doctor of optometry from the Nova Southeastern University's College of Optometry from Davie, FL.

Our Dr. Gayle Leinwohl grew up in Lancaster, New York and attended the State University of New York and the State University of New York's College of Optometry.

At either of our Jacksonville FL locations, patients can come in and receive a comprehensive eye exam. Our eye exam begins with a visual acuity test that determines if, and how, nearsighted or farsighted, you are. You'll be asked to look at several lines and read them to our optometrist, so we can determine the strength of your prescription.
During your exam, we'll also evaluate your eyes for any refractive errors such as astigmatism. We'll then pair you with contacts and/or eyeglasses specifically for your condition and prescription.
Our optometrist will conduct a contact lens or eyeglasses fitting. The contact lens fitting uses a specialized device that measures various dimensions of your eye while the eyeglasses fitting measures the frames, stems and other aspects of your glasses to ensure your comfort.
When you schedule an eye exam with us, we go beyond just pairing you with a prescription and new corrective eyewear; we also screen and treat you for various eye problems. For instance, by visually examining the eye and discussing your symptoms, we'll see if you have any signs of dry eye. We'll also screen you for glaucoma by recording your symptoms and testing the ocular pressure in your eye. Through the results of your vision screenings and your symptoms as well as an examination, we'll be able to check you for cataracts, a condition that occurs when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy. In addition, our optometrist will check you for macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, among other conditions.
Our eye doctors will conduct the initial LASIK evaluation to determine if you're a candidate for LASIK by ensuring you don't have any eye or health conditions that could interfere with the procedure. This is a prime time for one of our optometrists to address any concerns about the procedure you may have. Once we determine you're eligible for LASIK, we'll provide you with a referral to one of the LASIK eye surgeons in the area who we recommend. After you undergo the procedure, we'll conduct a follow-up at our office to evaluate the results and ensure the surgery's success.
We continuously offer specials and discounts that change each month such as a $99 eye exam with two pairs of glasses. And we accept most insurance including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Tricare, Medicaid, Medicare and numerous others. We should mention, for your convenience, you can use your health savings plans (HSP) and flexible spending plans (FSP).
