After graduating and receiving her doctorate at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 1992, Dr. Carol Hecker Nason was immediately recruited to the renowned Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami Medical School and Jackson Memorial Hospital complex in Miami. During her 2-year placement, she rotated through all the medical specialty clinics, taught ophthalmology residents about refraction, and developed, managed, and practiced in the indigent populations clinic. After moving to Palm Beach County in 1996, Dr. Carol opened her own primary care optometry part-time practice while raising her three young children and doing vacation/emergency relief work for other doctors in need. As Dr. Carol's practice has expanded over the years, she has similarly outgrown her small offices and has periodically moved on to bigger and better locations. You can currently find Dr. Carol proudly practicing primary care optometry at LensCrafters Optique inside Macy's at the Mall at Wellington Green. During her time away from the office, Dr. Carol enjoys cooking, crafts, entertaining, and traveling with her husband, Michael, who is also an optometrist, and her three children who are now young adults.
An optometrist uses several tests and tools to evaluate your eye health and your vision. Your eye exam usually will include a glaucoma test, a retinal screening, a visual field screening, an extraocular muscle test, and a refraction test. The results of these screenings and tests help your optometrist evaluate your vision and overall eye health. But an annual eye exam involves more than just updating your glasses or contact prescription. A comprehensive eye exam can also detect eye health issues as well as general health problems. Conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected in early stages through an eye exam, and this can result in early treatment.

A normal, comprehensive eye exam will allow your optometrist to determine if your eyes are healthy enough to wear contact lenses. During your contact lens fitting, detailed measurements of your eyes will be taken to determine the right contact lenses for you. There is an additional fee for a contact lens fitting and evaluation for all contact lens patients (both new and established patients). Schedule your eye exam today to have all of your questions about contact lenses answered.
