Meet Our Doctors

Your eye care is only as good as the doctors who provide it. That’s why, at True Eye Experts, we consider the knowledge and experience of your eye doctors to be just as important as the cutting-edge technology we use. Our team takes the time to listen to you, accurately diagnose your eyes, and build your eye care experience around your day-to-day needs.

Trusted Eye Experts, Excellent Eye Care

At True Eye Experts, our optometrists use their broad practical experience to offer truly comprehensive eye care. That’s why we’re known for the most thorough eye exams in the area, looking at risk factors for eye diseases, helping manage symptoms of dry eye and other conditions, and making sure you get the most accurate vision prescription possible, whether it’s for glasses, contact lenses, or both.

Samuel J. Teske, O.D.

TPA/DPA Certified Optometric Physician

Dr. Samuel Teske (Teh-skee) is a TPA/DPA certified optometric physician who specializes in vision correction, fitting specialty contact lenses, and diagnosing and treating ocular diseases such as dry eye.

Dr. Teske was inspired by a childhood spent inside his father’s optical shop, exploring the ways in which the different instruments around him could help improve people’s vision. Today, he loves the difference he can make in the lives of patients with challenging or tricky vision problems — in particular, dry eye, which often goes undiagnosed or mistreated — using the advanced medical equipment at the True Eye Experts offices.

Dr. Teske graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry with honors in ocular disease, contact lenses, pediatrics, geriatrics, and primary care internships. In his nearly 20 years of practice since, Dr. Teske has amassed more specialty training in his fields than most eye doctors in Tampa.

When not practicing eye care or spending time with his wife and three children, Dr. Teske enjoys anything that gets him outdoors, especially golfing, running, and kayaking.

Dr. Taylor Randich

Primary Care Optometry for Patients of All Ages 

Dr. Taylor Randich (ran-ditch) specializes in specialty contact lenses, dry eye, glaucoma, binocular vision cases, and both family and medical optometry for patients of all ages — a rarity in her field.

After experiencing an extraordinary ocular medication side effect, and the difference her eye doctors made in her life, Dr. Randich explored optometry through three internships that showed her the value of compassionate eye care. She now strives to provide the same excellence in care that she received, and believes that both the philosophy and state-of-the-art medical technology at True Eye Experts are the best tools for her to provide that care.

As a former secretary to the National Optometric Student Association, and someone who has traveled to Jamaica, Guatemala, and Nicaragua to provide eye care to those who wouldn’t otherwise have access to it, Dr. Randich has a great deal of experience working with, and for, others. Dr. Randich also had the honor of receiving the Student of the Year award during her studies at OSU.

Besides practicing eye care, Dr. Randich enjoys spending time with her family, getting active with hiking and Crossfit, and putting her degree in forensic accounting to use finding and preventing fraud.
