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.
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.
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.
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.
