Northwood Vision - Your Eye Doctors in Clearwater, Florida

The eye care services at Northwood Vision go way above and beyond routine check-ups and updated vision prescriptions. Whether you visit our Clearwater optometrists for a visual acuity test, comprehensive eye exam, contact lens fitting, designer glasses or treatment for an eye disease or condition, you’ll benefit from our expert skill and excellent patient service.

Dr. Keats pays particular attention to the small details of each eye examination and demonstrates the new prescription in a trial eyeglasses frame, taking you out of the exam room and into in a real-world environment. This gives you confidence that your new eyeglasses or contact lens prescription will be to your liking before you make the investment.

My wife and I are new in the area and decided to try Northwood. Our experience was outstanding. Dr. Keats and everyone on his staff were very welcoming, kind, and professional. Dr. Keats was very thorough and explained everything he was doing throughout the exam and what his findings and recommendations were. We have found our new vision care provider and highly recommend the practice to anyone who is looking.
