At SeePort Optometry, our main goal is to provide comprehensive eye care through eye exams and quality awesome eyeglasses in the North Port, Port Charlotte, Venice, West Villages and Englewood communities. Patient’s are thoroughly examined by Jesse Hicks, Optometrist, at SeePort Optometry, his family owned private practice here in Southwest Florida. In addition to providing a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, Dr. Hicks evaluates the retina, cornea, tear production, and optic nerve on every patient, identifying underlying vision problems beyond basic correction. All questions are welcomed and answered in the exam room or the optical gallery. Specialty Services offered include myopia control, scleral contact lenses, Dry Eye Assessment and Treatment, Cataract evaluation, and glaucoma management.
Dr. and Mrs. Hicks have created Simple Eyecare Seelutions – Exam, Frames and Lens packages. Each package has been carefully designed to include all lens styles, upgrades and features based on your budget. There are no surprise charges or bait and switch tactics, just simple, open and honest pricing for clear vision. Our optical gallery offers trendy, classic, durable, essential and one-of-a-kind eyewear, all of which are included in our Simple Eye Care Seelutions Bundles. Prescriptions from other eye care professionals are welcomed and will be offered eyeglasses only packages, taking out the cost of the exam but keeping the frames and lenses. You can try on many of our frames in inventory at home through our virtual frame gallery. Create a wish list of your favorites and we will have them waiting for you at your appointment. We have added iGreen custom eyewear as an option for our community! Have fun designing your own frames with the design tool!
