Vision Care, Eyeglasses, and Contact Lenses in

North Port, Venice & Port Charlotte

At SeePort Optometry, our main goal is to provide comprehensive eye care to the North Port, Port Charlotte, Venice, West Villages and Englewood communities.  Patient’s eyes are thoroughly examined by Dr. Hicks beyond an eyeglasses or contact lens prescription.  Dr. Hicks evaluates the retina, cornea, tear production, and optic nerve on every patient.  All questions are welcomed and answered in the exam room or the optical gallery.  Specialty Services offered include myopia control, specialty contact lenses, and glaucoma management.

Our optical gallery offers trendy, classic, durable, essential and one-of-a-kind eyewear.  We truly have a frame for every face and budget.  We happily accept prescriptions from other doctors and clinics.  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 recently added custom eyewear as an option for our community!  Visit out Optical Gallery page to design your own custom frame before your appointment.  

Dr. Hicks is proficient in fitting contact lenses on his patients.  Not only can he fit basic lenses, he also excels with specialty, hard to fit contact lenses including    multi-focal or bi-focal contacts, scalaral contacts for treatment of keratoconus, hard contact lenses (RGP) and orthokeratology lenses.  We also have an online Contact LenStore where you can order and pay online, then have the lenses shipped to you at no charge.  

Pediatric Eye Care is so incredibly important and is often overlooked. Eighty percent of all learning is performed through vision. Make sure your child has the best possible tools to learn successfully by getting them an exam with a pediatric eye doctor like Dr. Hicks.  He and his wife have 2 small kiddos of their own, so he has plenty of experience working with young children.  If your child has anxiety or is frightened of doctors, please reach out to Dr. Hicks’ wife, Annie.  She has some tools that may help take away the stress of coming to the doctor.  

We treat ocular emergencies at SeePort along with annual, routine care.  Eye infections, injuries, foreign
bodies in the eye, swollen eyelids, flashes and floaters, loss of vision, discharge or sensitivity to light are all symptoms treated at SeePort.  If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call the office at 941-876-4400.  We will schedule an appointment with Dr. Hicks as soon as possible.  If you are in pain, please make sure to let us know so we can get you in right away.
