The True Eye Exam At True Eye Experts

When we created our True Eye Exam, we established one of the most thorough eye exams in the industry. As a result, you can rest assured knowing that you have the most accurate prescription possible, and we’ve examined your eye health from every possible angle. True Eye Experts invests in the latest technology to offer high-quality eye care for all our patients. 

Your Trusted Source for quality eyewear

With an endless variety of lens types and frames, we will help you find the perfect eyewear to suit your vision needs. We stock a wide variety of designer frames and lens enhancements to perfectly complement your prescription.

Solutions for Hard-to-Fit
Contact Lens Patients

Contact lenses aren’t “one-size-fits-all,” and the wrong lenses can affect your quality of vision. If you’ve had trouble with contacts in the past, True Eye Experts can help with our personal contact lens fittings and specialized options. We also offer Ortho-K therapy for children with myopia.

Common Conditions Treated in Our Apopka Eye Clinic

Dr. Prado, the must-see eye doctor in Apopka, treats several common eye conditions. If you have any of the symptoms listed below, schedule an eye care appointment for a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Dry Eye

At True Eye Experts of Apopka, we specialize in treating dry eye disease. This condition occurs when your tears can’t provide enough lubrication for your eyes.

Dry eye is one of the most common eye conditions and can often be resolved with straightforward treatment. However, if left untreated, the lack of tears can cause inflammation and lead to potential damage to the eye’s surface.

Common symptoms of dry eye include:

  • A stinging or burning feeling
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye fatigue
  • Feeling like something is stuck in your eye
  • Irritation from wearing contact lenses
  • Mucus
  • Redness
  • Scratchy eyes
  • Tearing

There could be several reasons why your eyes stop producing enough tears. We can prescribe eye drops specifically formulated to treat dry eye for chronic sufferers, which are a better option than over-the-counter artificial tears. Dr. Prado may also suggest lifestyle changes that help decrease the frequency or severity of your dry eye.

Eye Allergies

Eye allergies are another common condition that affects millions of Americans. Yet, while we are quick to treat nasal allergy symptoms, like a runny nose, we often don’t treat eye allergy symptoms.

Typical symptoms are:

  • Burning or stinging feeling
  • Itchiness
  • Redness
  • Tearing

Eye allergy symptoms are very similar to dry eye symptoms. However, if you experience prolonged symptoms that have not subsided with over-the-counter treatments, you should see an optometrist promptly to get a proper diagnosis and treatment for the problem.

Contact Lenses for Dry Eye or Eye Allergies

In addition to offering a unique array of eyeglasses, we also have a variety of contact lenses to address your eye care needs.

Dailies TOTAL daily lenses from Alcon are an excellent option for those with eye allergies or dry eye. We also offer other options, such as Biofinity lenses, which are versatile monthly disposable lenses.

Whether you need a new contact lens prescription or are a first-time wearer, Dr. Prado will ensure you have the best lenses for your needs. In addition, should you need assistance learning how to wear contacts, Dr. Prado is an expert at contact lens fitting.

Eye Consultations and Referrals in Apopka, FL

After receiving a diagnosis, our staff can treat your condition or refer you to a more specialized eye health professional. If we need to refer you to an ophthalmology clinic for further treatment, we can first answer all your frequently asked questions to ease your mind.

LASIK and PRK Consults

LASIK is a vision corrective eye surgery performed by an ophthalmologist. The procedure is safe and causes minimal pain with lasting results. Using laser cutting technology, the ophthalmologist will reshape the clear tissue on the cornea to improve vision.

However, your retina must be thick enough to endure the procedure to be eligible for the surgery. If your retinas don’t meet the thickness threshold, then you’ll likely be a candidate for PRK instead, which is a similar procedure. Although PRK has a longer recovery time, it’s the best option for those with thinning retinas.

At True Eye Experts of Apopka, we’ll let you know if you’re a good candidate for LASIK or PRK. Then, Dr. Prado will co-manage the surgery with one of our ophthalmology partners, Dr. Philipsky or Dr. Victor Thomas, to give you exceptional care.

Cataract Management

At True Eye Experts of Apopka, we help many patients with cataracts. A cataract is when the clear lens inside the eye becomes cloudy, causing hazy vision that can be similar to looking through a fogged-up window. This cloudy vision makes daily activities, such as reading and driving, much more difficult or dangerous.

Cataracts develop slowly, so often, patients may not realize they are suffering from a more severe condition until their eyesight worsens significantly. Initially, stronger lighting and eyeglasses can help manage the disease. Eventually, you may require surgery to address your cataracts and improve your eye health.

If surgery is necessary, Dr. Prado will refer you to an expert opthalmologist and co-manage your cataract procedure to give you the best results. He often partners with Dr. Conrad Philipsky and Dr. Victor Thomas.

Pediatric Eye Care in Apopka, FL

If your child has vision problems or eye irritation, they’ll require pediatric eye care. Dr. Prado has extensive experience working with kids of all ages.

Early and regular exams are essential to maintaining your child’s eye health. The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends children have their first eye exam at six months. Our True Eye Experts of Apopka location can accommodate children as young as five. If your child is not yet five, please contact our office so we can assist you with a referral.

Our eye clinic has different tools to assess your child’s needs based on their age and the extent of their problems. Digital technology allows us to evaluate a child’s vision even when they don’t have the verbal skills to describe it themselves.

Further, we understand that children have unique needs, so we’ll use the latest technology to provide a comprehensive exam with minimal effort to the child and parent. We’ll also explain the exam process in simple terms so the child always feels comfortable.

Should your child need glasses or contacts, we can help with the selection process and teach them about proper usage.

Pediatric Contact Lenses Fittings

If your child prefers to wear contact lenses, Dr. Prado can help with the fitting, including identifying the correct contact lens strength and the lens type suitable for their specific refractive error. Although we typically work with children ages ten and older, our office can accommodate younger children when necessary.
