Welcome to Southwest Orlando Eye Care, where we provide comprehensive family eye care for residents of Southwest Orlando and the surrounding Florida communities. We invite you to learn about the mission of our Orlando optometrist, Dr. John Nowell, and the services we offer. 

Our Orlando Optometry Services

We offer the following vision care services at our optometry clinic: 

  • Eye Exam - Our comprehensive all-ages eye exams make sure your eyes are healthy at every age. We begin by screening your eye health, checking for evidence of ocular diseases, and doing preventative testing. Once we are satisfied your eyes are healthy we will check your vision. We can adjust your prescription, talk about your vision and eye health, and make sure you feel comfortable.
  • Contact Lens Exam - Before you can switch from glasses to contacts, you must have a contact lens exam. In the exam, we measure your eyes, fit you for contacts, choose contacts that meet your vision needs, and demonstrate proper care. 
  • Glasses - If you need eyeglasses or sunglasses, we invite you to browse our optical shop. Our skilled technicians can adjust your glasses and help you find your perfect pair. 
  • Pre and Post consultation for eye surgery - Are you thinking of getting LASIK or another eye surgery? Come in for a consultation and learn about the procedure. If you choose to go ahead, we will schedule it with an eye surgeon, perform all pre-surgical care, and help you recover after surgery. 
  • Keracotonus treatment - Keratoconus is a corneal eye condition that causes blurred, distorted vision. We can help with corrective lenses or glasses. 

    Our Orlando Eye Doctor's Mission

At Southwest Orlando Eye Care, we strive to stay up-to-date with technologies that can maintain your ocular and vision health. Our care is personalized and of the highest quality. As we say, "Your Vision Is Our Focus."

Our eye doctor team is made up of Super Technicians. These vision professionals are both Opticians and Optometric Technicians, so they can do a lot more to help take care of your vision and eye health. So you always have an eyecare professional by your side, we make sure one of our Super Technicians is with you for the duration of your eye appointment. You can get needed information from the Super Technician, ask questions, and really have a dedicated resource in your corner. We believe this unique approach allows us to provide the best quality eye care for all our patients, from pediatrics to older adults.

    "I love coming to work every day and watching the transformation in our patients. It never ceases to amaze me how being able to see clearly and without pain boosts their confidence and restores independence. So many people are living with limitations due to visual impairment – and might not even know it! Working here with Dr. Anderson has shown me how even the smallest improvement in one’s sight can make a huge positive impact on their lives."
  • Terry Noble
    "As a child, I had a hard time at school. I had difficulty reading and was labeled a “slow learner.” It was only later revealed that vision problems were at the root of my difficulties. Once I saw an eye care professional and was fitted with corrective lenses, my performance in school excelled. We see these type of success stories every day at Dr. Anderson and it’s one of the many things that makes my career so rewarding!”
