Charting a Course for Excellence

Dr. David Scamard of Excellence In Eye Care has practiced locally for over 15 years.

Just when you thought you’d seen everything, things begin to change. Menus seem to be printed smaller. Someone has clearly messed with the font size on your smartphone. And, the print on your prescriptions has become a blur.

“Unfortunately, the world isn’t changing as much as your eyes probably are,” says Dr. David Scamard, O.D., of Excellence In Eye Care, at Cypress Creek Town Center. “Like the rest of our bodies, the eye’s efficiency as an organ will change over time.”

While that’s not really a newsflash to anyone over the age of 45, or to those that already wear glasses, Dr. Scamard feels that it’s important to recognize that other factors could be contributing to your changing vision.

“Regular eye exams are important because when left undiagnosed, or not addressed promptly, things like glaucoma, cataracts and retinal detachment can lead to much more serious eye problems,” he says.

Dr. Scamard, a Tampa native, has been practicing for more than 15 years and has rightfully earned quite the local following. Last February, he opened his new full-scope optometric eye care practice in the optics center inside the Costco at Cypress Creek Town Center.

With a lab, designer frames and prescription lenses literally steps away from his clinic, the value-added services create a combination that’s tough to match. What’s more, because all of his equipment like the auto refractor, the visual field analyzer and the digital phoropter are state-of-the-art, digital, most exams can be conducted in less than 15 minutes. If you need to budget your time, an appointments is encouraged, but even walk-ins are usually seen with little or no wait time as well.

Beyond all of that, Dr. Scamard is also leading the way in the emerging field of Sports Vision Training with his recent acquisition of a Sanet Vision Integrator. The SVI as it’s called, is a key component in Sports Vision Training, which sharpens athletes’ reaction times, while at the same time improving their balance. At all levels, the training can be a valuable tool for players (and coaches) in virtually all sports. Excellence In Eye Care is one of only a handful of clinics in the state to offer SVI services to the public.

Excellence In Eye Care also specializes in contact lenses and pediatric eye care. To schedule your eye exam or to find out more about Sport Vision Training, give Dr. Scamard a call, or check out Excellence In Eye Care’s website.
