The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as medical insurance. Regular medical health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

We Love Clearwater, Florida

Visiting Clearwater, FL will certainly be a great experience for you and your family. Since I have grown up in Clearwater, there are some spots you will not want to miss that you need to know about. After you fly into Tampa Airport, you will follow the signs to Clearwater, taking the Courtney Campbell Causeway (SR 60) toward Clearwater.  You might want to get out and stretch your legs and take some photos of Tampa Bay.  Along the south side of the causeway is a fairly new walking trail that is nice to take some of those water pictures if you can’t wait until you get to the beach!

Most people head right to the beach when they arrive, and thankfully, if you just stay on State Road 60, which becomes “Gulf to Bay”, you will find yourself there in about twenty minutes.  But I will give you point by point interest options on your way there that may open your eyes to other parts of this great area.

As you leave the causeway and come to the Clearwater mainland, the first major intersection you will pass is called McMullen Booth Rd. This road, heading north, will take you to the Ruth Eckerd Hall that has many shows and events you can search online at http://www.rutheckerdhall.com/.  Continuing north you would head to the small town of Safety Harbor and then Palm Harbor. My office is right on the border of Safety Harbor. If you travel south on McMullen Booth Rd, you will head right over the Bayside Bridge which will take you to the St. Pete/Clearwater Airport and eastern Largo. St. Petersburg Airport is a smaller version of Tampa international, and is mostly home to the commercial airline Allegiant Air.

Clearwater is known for two things. The Beach, and the church of Scientology. Scientology has been in Clearwater since I was a little boy and over time the church has purchased the vast majority of downtown Clearwater.  Downtown also has a great history. We were thankful the Capitol Theater has re-opened to the public. There are signatures of past war heroes in the brick that have been preserved from the original.  Although there used to be a ferry or a train to take passengers to the beach, now there is a causeway that is lined with cars as beach-goers work hard to find cherished parking spots to enjoy those glorious sands. I like to park at the Hyatt and walk over to the beach if I want to participate in all the activities at Pier 60, the busiest part of the beach. But if I get there early enough, I park up near the Palm Pavilion, usually behind the public tennis courts. This parking area leads to the northern section of the beach which is less crowded and more relaxing.

My favorite beach trip is to park as far north as I can get, and bring a backpack and hike several miles north on the beach to find a secluded spot near Caledesi Island away from the crowds where I can feel more secluded with nature.

Before you head over to Clearwater Beach, be sure to make a stop in the Island Estates neighborhood to see Winter the Dolphin at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Since the movie has come out, our little aquarium has become quite the popular spot and an inspiration to many children and adults alike who are missing a limb.

As you enter Clearwater Beach, there is a round-a-bout to take you to the various spots. To relieve your stress in lane changes, stay in the right lane and you will be able to exit onto the roads more easily. Driving north on Mandalay you can get to Frenchy’s on the beach or the Palm Pavilion for a grouper sandwich. Clearwater Beach, in my opinion, is best visited as the sun is setting. The weather is cool, the crowds are less, and the view is romantic. Traveling south of the round-a-bout is the Hyatt, Sheppard’s, and Sand Key Beach.  My favorite restaurant in the area is The Columbia on Sand Key beach. It is right on the bay features local Cuban cuisine, Tampa style, you can’t get elsewhere. Although The Columbia has a few locations, this one is my favorite since it is right on the water and has magical views.

Northwood Vision in Clearwater, FL

Clearwater, of course, is only part of a larger geography, and visiting here really encapsulates several notable places, like the Greek-dominated community of Tarpon Springs, known for its massive Sponge industry and well visited Sponge Docks.  There is also the community in which I live, Safety Harbor, a quaint small town on Tampa Bay, home to the state’s Oldest spa, the Safety Harbor Spa with its natural mineral springs and excellent restaurants. And one can’t neglect a drive down to St. Pete Beach and Fort Desoto, along with the great nightlife in downtown St. Petersburg.   Clearwater is only part of a larger community and a 45-minute drive in any direction can take a traveler to a host of memorable places. I hope you enjoy your stay!

Optometrist in Clearwater, FL

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Northwood Vision in Clearwater, FL

Our optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Dr.-Christopher-Keats

Dr. Christopher Keats

Christopher K. Keats O.D received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Emory University, before attending Southern College of Optometry in Memphis. Dr. Keats graduated as a doctor of optometry in May, 1999 and practiced in Indiana and Hernando County before purchasing Northwood Vision in 2012.

After high school, Chris moved to Atlanta, GA to attend Emory University, graduating with a BS in Biology, with the first two years of his collegiate career at Emory’s parent school, the smaller campus, Oxford College of Emory University.

After Emory, Chris spent one year living in Anchorage, Alaska taking classes and teaching Biology labs.  While home at Christmas Break, he met Michaela Spoto, a Tampa native. In the three weeks they knew each other, Chris and Michaela fell instantly in love.  Then it was back to Anchorage for Chris, but after five long months apart, they were reunited when Chris came home from Alaska.  About a year later, Chris and Michaela were married on July 15, 1995.

The newlyweds relocated to Memphis, TN where they spent the next four years until Chris graduated from Southern College of Optometery as a doctor of optometry in May, 1999.  During this time, Michaela was the family bread winner, teaching as a Special Education teacher in the town of Millington just outside Memphis.  As Dr. Keats was finishing school, his first born, Katie became a part of the Keats Family.

After graduation, Dr. Keats moved his family up to Mishawaka / South Bend Indiana, and practiced there and in Elkhart in a large group practice called Optical One.  In just two years, Michaela was already tired of lake effect snow and dreary skies and the young family moved back down to Florida.

They settled in the Hernando County and  for eleven years, Dr. Keats worked independently in several practices there, including Sears Optical, Spring Hill Eye Center, Clear Vision Optical, and in a medical referral center called The Eye Center, with Joseph C. Militello, MD.  During this time, Dr. Keats established an excellent reputation in the community and was  given both the gold and the silver award by the St. Petersburg Times “Best of Hernando” poll at Clear Vision Optical and Sears Optical!

His son, Ethan was born in 2001, a true Florida native like his mom!

In the summer of 2012, Dr. Keats and his family moved back to the Clearwater area, and settled down in Safety Harbor.  At about this time, Dr. Barry Cochran contacted him and offered to sell his practice, Northwood Vision, to Dr. Keats.  At the end of November, 2012, Dr. Cochran retired from Northwood Vision, and Dr. Keats took over the practice.

In his spare time, Dr. Keats enjoys kayaking, bike riding, and science fiction.  He is active in his new church, and for years, he and Michaela have been committed to helping married couples strengthen their relationships.

Meanwhile, Dr. Keats is excited to meet the many patients who have been coming to Northwood Vision for years, and also expand the practice with the new faces that will come through the doors.  Thank you for reading about your doctor, and we look forward to getting to know you better in the years to come!


EYEGLASS BASICS

Eyeglasses are more popular today than ever, despite the availability of contact lenses and vision correction surgery.

Eyeglasses in Clearwater, FL

Modern eyewear serves a dual purpose. In addition to being a vision-correcting medical device used to enhance your safety and quality of life, eyeglasses have become a major fashion accessory. Therefore, when it comes to selecting eyeglasses there are many important factors to consider.

eyeglasses frame display 640.jpg


The Frame

Frames are made from a large variety of materials ranging from acetates and hard plastics to metals and metal alloys. The quality of frame materials is very high nowadays with many cutting-edge manufacturers investing heavily in developing new innovations and materials to make stronger, more flexible, lighter and more beautiful frames.

In considering the optimal material for your eyeglass frame, your lifestyle plays a big role. Children and those with active lifestyles require durable and flexible frames that are resistant to breaks from hits and falls. Those who have skin allergies need to seek out frames made from hypoallergenic materials such as acetate, titanium or stainless steel. Other characteristics of frame materials to consider are the weight or flexibility of the material as well as the price. Many designers also use wood, bone or precious metals to adorn frames and add an extra .

Hinges and nosepads also play an important role in durability and comfort of your frames. Children in particular can benefit from spring hinges and nosepads which can keep the frames from slipping off. Rimless or semi-rimless glasses are also an option for those that durability is not a primary concern.

Frame size is a very important factor in frame selection. Frames should fit well and not slip off the nose or be too tight and press against the temples or the sides of the nose.

More and more top fashion design brands are coming out with designer eyewear collections to suit every taste and style. Frames come in all colors, sizes and shapes so the choices are endless in finding a frame that suits your personal style and looks good with your face shape and coloring.


Lenses

Even though people spend much more time focusing on frame selection, as a medical device, the lenses of your eyeglasses are the most important part. It is therefore very important that you obtain your lenses (and therefore your glasses) from a reputable source. It is always best to buy eyeglasses through an eye doctor who is able to check that the lenses are made and fitted properly to ensure your best possible vision.

There are a number of variables to consider in selecting lenses.

If you have a high prescription which may require thicker lenses, you may want to ask for aspheric lenses which are thinner than normal lenses. There are lenses that are made from materials that are more durable and shatter-resistant such as polycarbonate or trivex, which can be useful for children or sports eyewear.

Photochromic lenses can serve as eyeglasses and sunglasses as the lenses darken when exposed to the sunlight to block out the sunlight and UV rays.

Polarized lenses create greater eye comfort by reducing glare specifically from the water or snow and are great for sunglasses for those that spend time outdoors.

There are also a number of coating options that you can add onto lenses to enhance certain characteristics such as anti-reflective coatings, anti-scratch coatings or UV coatings to reduce exposure from the sun. Adding a coating may require special cleaning or treatment so ask your eye doctor or optician about special instructions.

Confident Aged woman 640.jpg


Eyeglasses Over 40

Once you approach age 40 you are likely to begin to experience presbyopia which is the loss of the ability to focus on close objects. This happens as the eye begins to age and can easily be corrected with reading glasses. However, if you already have an eyeglass prescription for distance vision, you will need a solution that enables you to see your best both near and far.

There are a number of options available for presbyopes including bifocals, multifocals and progressive lenses with new technology improving the options all the time. You should speak to your eye doctor about the best solution for your individual needs.

Whether they are for a child’s first pair, a second pair of designer frames or a senior with a complicated prescription, you should always consult with your eye doctor for a new pair of glasses. Ultimately, your eyeglasses have a job and that it to help you to see your best to get the most out of every day.

A WIDE SELECTION OF CONTACT LENSES

At Northwood Vision we offer a wide selection of contact lenses including disposable soft contact, bifocal/multifocal, toric, and colored lenses. Whether you wear daily, weekly or monthly disposables, or conventional (vial) lenses, check out our selection of lenses that fit your needs.

Establishing a Good Contact Lens Fit





A good contact lens fit starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rule out any  pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.

Fitting lenses to your lifestyle
Our eye doctor will help you determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs, the shape and health of your eye. In most cases, you’ll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You can even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.

Follow up fittings
We follow up the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible fit. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.


Dr. Keats answers your questions about contact lenses





What is the difference between an eye exam geared toward wearers of glasses and an eye exam geared toward wearers of contact lenses?

An eye exam for glasses is also known as a comprehensive eye exam. The vision is tested, glasses needs are addressed, including the ability for the two eyes to work together. The front surface of the eye is tested along with the intra-ocular pressure, and the internal parts of the eye, like the macula and optic nerve are assessed for a comprehensive medical assessment of the eye.

An eye exam for wearers of contact lenses is exactly the same, but the patient is billed an additional charge for a contact lens fitting and follows up. Here, the most appropriate contact lens modality is discussed and fitted. The contact lenses are evaluated on the eyes, and changes to the powers are made for the most enhanced vision possible.

A final trial lens is given or ordered and there is potentially a secondary or even a tertiary visit to check for potential harm the lens might cause to the eye, and to finalize the powers. This care is inclusive with the contact lens assessment.





If I have had a glasses exam by another eye doctor, can I just come to you for a contact lens fitting?

If the doctor who did the glasses examination sends me a letter stating they did a comprehensive eye examination and present with a summary including the glasses prescription, and they express a desire for me to do the contact lens fitting for them, then I can proceed with that portion of the evaluation and send them a report back with my findings and final contact lens prescription. However, if I do not receive the request by your doctor in writing, I must, by state law, conduct a comprehensive eye examination first, and then proceed with the contact lens fitting.





Does a contact lens examination cost more than a glasses examination?

Yes. The glasses examination, better known as a comprehensive eye examination, will be done first. Then a separate and additional charge will be given for the contact lens evaluation. It is required for us to do this by state law unless another doctor requests in writing that they want us to do the contact lens fitting only after they have done the eye exam.

The fitting fee for the contact lenses can vary depending on the complexity of the care. Patients may need spherical, astigmatism, monovision, multifocal, rigid gas permeable (RGP), RGP multifocal, keratoconus, or scleral lens designs for optimal vision and lifestyle needs. The time it takes to fit, analyze, refit, and finalize the custom designs can create a variety of pricing structures. We can give you more specifics when we understand the nature of your glasses prescription.





What are some advantages and disadvantages of contact lenses?

Contact lenses are popular with many patients mostly because they offer a wider peripheral field of view and no magnification or minification as seen with higher powered glasses. They are preferable when patients are exercising, or working outside in sweaty conditions, or for patients who have trouble with their glasses fogging up going form one temperature to another at work.

Some patients struggle to comfortably wear eyeglass frames or simply don’t like the way they look in them, so contact lenses solve these issues. Conversely, most contact lenses will exacerbate a dry eye problem, and if the eyes are dry, it is not uncommon to have fluctuating vision when blinking. Patients with astigmatism can have intermittent blur compared to the stability of glasses.

There is an increased risk of infection wearing contacts compared to wearing glasses. The cost of wearing contact lenses is greater as they should not be worn all waking hours in most cases. It is recommended to wear them about 14 hours per day and wear glasses in the evening at home, and on days when the eyes are red or tired. Contact lenses are a wonderful option for many people, however, and the negative consequences rarely dissuade patients from wearing them comfortably and clearly.





Can you explain the difference between contacts lenses you keep for a month and ones you throw away on a daily basis?

Years ago, patients would have only one pair of contact lenses to last the whole year. The cost of owning that pair made it impractical to throw them away more often due to the overall cost. As mass production of contact lenses became mainstream, and the grave complications and blinding events with these lenses were increasing, manufacturers were able to offer monthly lenses.

The risk of complications went down significantly. But dryness/irritation concerns and over wear abuse has not resolved the complications. So to help patients have less dryness, lower risk of infection, and the joy of not having to worry about whether or not the lenses were cleaned properly every single night, daily disposables have now been popularized and eliminate these concerns.

About 60 percent of our patients wears daily disposables due to the convenience, the comfort, and the added safety. Yes, they cost a little more per month, but for many patients, that is a small price to pay for the benefits of daily disposable contact lenses. And, in today’s technology, there are good options for almost all of our patients.
