Contact Lenses

How often should I get my eyes examined?
Just like seeing your primary doctor, it is best to come in every year. In the state of Florida, eyeglass prescriptions are only valid for 24 months and contact lens prescriptions are only valid for 12 months. Why? Well the reason is because your eyes are constantly changing and are exposed to many things. Eye exams are not just about vision, but they are also about the health of your eye! Many eye diseases develop without any signs or symptoms in the early development stages, so it is very important that we are able to look at your eyes every year to make sure everything is nice and healthy! Those with a family history of eye diseases, diabetic patients and anyone whose general health is poor or who are taking medications that may have potential side effects on the eye, may need to have their eyes examined more often so we can monitor any developments and meet your needs in the best way possible.
What is the difference between a routine eye exam and a contact lens exam/fitting?
Routine eye exams are designed to detect vision problems and are an important preventive measure for maintaining your overall health and wellness. In fact, a thorough eye exam can detect a number of serious medical conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes and even cancer.

Contact lens exams are designed to evaluate your vision with contacts. Although your vision may be clear and you feel no discomfort from your lenses, there are potential risk factors with improper wearing or fitting of contact lenses that can affect the overall health of your eyes.

Do I need an exam if I just want to wear contacts for fun/cosmetic use?
Yes. In order for Dr. Shearer to prescribe the proper fit and comfortable lenses, you will need to have an eye exam and contact lens fitting. During the eye exam, Dr. Shearer will check your vision to make sure you are able to see both up close and far away. Besides checking your vision, Dr. Shearer will also be checking the health of your eyes. During the contact lens fitting, Dr. Shearer will take special measurements of your eye and its surface, checking for curvature and other factors that will affect how your lenses fit. Finally, your cornea will be carefully examined to make sure there aren’t any problems that could make it hard for you to wear contact lenses. Dr. Shearer will then be able to prescribe you the proper lens that will best benefit you and your needs.



“My entire family goes here and we all have had a great experience! Jordan was able to have my 11 year old out in and take out contacts in less than an hour! Everyone is always so nice and we never have a long wait.”


“My family and I would like to say thanks for your amazing service yesterday. You all were extremely professional, hospitable, patient, thorough, and kind. We look forward to our future visits with your company.”


“I’ve been going to Dr. Shearer’s office for many years. I’m so thrilled with actually being able to see. He has always been happy to tweak my contact lens prescription until it is perfect!! Friendly, professional office. Recommend highly!!”


Dr. Shearer and his staff are amazing! They have taken great care of me and me family for many years now.”


Absolutely an amazing experience from start to finish! With this being my first eye appointment, ever, I was a little nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. I had no issues in making the appointment. The appointment was handled with great care and they made sure to walk me through everything they were doing. I then was helped by all three fabulous women in picking out a new pair of glasses. They were very helpful, and honest in if it looked great or not, which I greatly appreciated! We found the perfect frames, and the glasses were ready much more quickly than expected! I absolutely love my new glasses, and I can’t believe I waited so long to get an appointment!”


Glad I came here after being long overdue for an eye exam, the Dr. and staff were all very friendly and make you feel comfortable. Very price transparent and great selection of eye glasses to choose from. Office was spacious and clean which is an added bonus.”


Really appreciate the patience and professionalism from this entire office! It is wonderful in this day and age when people take the time to make you feel so comfortable and taken care of. Top notch service and individuals in this office HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”


Experience was excellent. Everyone was nice and kind. Dr. Shearer was great as usual.”


Dr Shearer and team are much more than professionals they are a caring family of long time friends and I trust them to always do the right thing in taking care of my vision needs.”


Felt at ease and treated well. Eye exam went well, then the dreaded part of deciding on glasses. They have several options and they walk you through them. consider your concerns and felt like they were taking care of the eye patient. Ill go back.”
