Need to Find Eye Doctor in South Sarasota County

Hey all,
My husband and I have recently been looking for an Eye Doctor. We obviously would like someone who is good with children as we have 3 boys between the ages of 7 and 13. Any suggestions?

What can I do next?

Hello V.,

My name is R.. I have 2 boys myself (almost 7 and just turned 11). I would highly recommend Dr. Silverman in Lakewood Ranch. That's who we use and he's fantastic.
Good luck in your search.

BTW - We are a Christian family as well. I too stay-at-home, and I'm in the process of establishing a nonprofit here in Sarasota so I'm plenty busy;-)

Hi V.,

I am a mother of two of my own and four of my husband's (Step children). I have taken my 7 yr old daughter and 14 yr old son to The Eye Associates in Ellenton, but do know they have other locations. They have been wonderful with both my children and also with my husband and myself, fitting all three of them with glasses. Hopefully that will help!
