Wesley Chapel and Lutz, Florida Reviews


Our comprehensive eye exams use the latest technology to assess your vision quality and ocular health through techniques like corneal topography, retinal imaging, and more. We also assist in treatment for glaucoma, cataracts, and other common eye health conditions.

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.

Exam Rooms Built for Your Child’s Comfort

Undergoing an eye exam and getting eyeglasses from an optician can be a strange experience for young children. That’s why we have child-friendly exam rooms just for them! Kids will see hand-painted animals wearing glasses on the walls to ease any anxiety about the eye exam.

Dr. Randich will also use sounds and lights to make the exam engaging and fun for the child. In addition, she uses a child’s favorite hobbies or fictional characters to connect with them and help them feel comfortable.

Free Eye Exams for Children Under One

We believe that the sooner you assess your child’s vision, the sooner you can diagnose and treat possible eye conditions for a happier and healthier life.

We know that not all parents can afford this initial exam, especially if they don’t notice any severe symptoms in their child. New patients who visit a Lutz eye doctor at True Eye Experts can get a free eye exam for their child under the age of one.

Common Eye Conditions Treated in Our Lutz Eye Clinic

When you need to assess your eye health or access vision care, you’ll want to see an optometrist at True Eye Experts. Our eye doctors can diagnose and treat many different eye diseases. Here are some specialties our eye care specialists at True Eye handle daily.

Dry Eye

Dry eye disease occurs when your eye stops producing or doesn’t produce enough tears to lubricate your eyes properly. Without sufficient lubrication, your eyes will feel uncomfortable. Left untreated, dry eye can cause vision problems.

Dry eye affects millions yearly, so diagnosing and treating the condition is straightforward. Common symptoms include:

  • A burning, scratching, or stinging feeling
  • Blurred vision
  • Light sensitivity
  • Red eyes

If you notice these symptoms, come see us for an eye exam. Our primary optometrist, Dr. Taylor Randich, is a dry eye expert. With a diagnosis, she can provide the best treatment for you, such as medicated eye drops or prescription medicine.

Eye Allergies

Eye allergies also affect millions of Americans. However, the symptoms are nearly identical to those of dry eye, so knowing the root cause of your eye irritation will be challenging unless you see an eye doctor.

Those prone to allergies or who suffer from nasal allergies will likely experience eye allergies, too. So if your eyes are burning, itching, or tearing often, you’ll want to see an eye doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Eye Consultations and Referrals in Lutz, 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.


At True Eye Experts of Lutz, we see many cases of cataracts. Unfortunately, cataracts are a common age-related eye disease where a cloudy area forms on the eye’s lens. This causes your vision to be blurry, hazy, or less colorful, making reading and other daily activities difficult. Without treatment, cataracts will lead to vision loss.

Thankfully, cataract eye surgery is safe and will effectively treat the condition. If a True Eye optometrist diagnoses you with cataracts, they will refer you to an ophthalmologist for further treatment. This usually includes eye surgery.


Glaucoma is another common age-related eye disease that often requires surgery to correct. Glaucoma causes vision loss and sometimes blindness in untreated cases by damaging the optic nerve in the back of your eye.

In its early stages, there aren’t any telltale signs of glaucoma. But as time progresses, you will slowly lose vision, particularly your peripheral (side) vision. Since it can be challenging to determine if you have glaucoma, annual eye exams are essential, especially as you age or have a family history of the disease.

At True Eye Experts, we can treat mild glaucoma cases. However, if you have moderate to severe glaucoma, we’ll refer you to an ophthalmologist for further treatment.

Diabetic Eye Exams

If you live with diabetes, you are more susceptible to eye diseases like diabetic retinopathy and macular edema. High blood sugar levels from diabetes cause damage to the blood vessels in the retina.

If you have diabetes, you should have an eye exam at least yearly. At True Eye Experts, we conduct comprehension diabetic eye exams to identify eye conditions before they become more problematic to treat. Early intervention and treatment are always best.

LASIK and PRK Consultation

While we don’t perform LASIK and PRK surgeries ourselves, we can co-manage the procedure with a nearby ophthalmology professional. Before considering LASIK or PRK surgery, your eye doctor must determine the cause of your vision problems.

Keep in mind that LASIK doesn’t correct all vision issues. For example, LASIK will not help improve your vision if you have one of these common age-related conditions: presbyopia or macular degeneration.
