Our Lead Technician, Carol Marsh-Urquhart and her very special friend, Corey
Two 11 year old kids – Corey and Alliston – came into the Visionary Eyecare
Office in Pembroke Pines… they were selling candy TO BUY THEIR OWN
school supplies when our lead tech, Carol Marsh-Urquhart
, was in charge. Carol
was so touched by their humbleness and exuberant entrepreneurial energy in finding a way to buy their own school supplies that she thought of ANOTHER WAY
to help them get their supplies.
She contacted her church – Christ The Rock
in Cooper City – and inquired about any program that would help kids in need. Carol
was able to get 2 book bags filled with school supplies for the two youngsters. She then called the kids, Corey and Alliston, who were extremely happy to FINALLY have their school supplies!!!
During this encounter, Carol
also had noticed that Corey had a very severe and cosmetically troublesome eye turn and thought about ways in which she could help him with his problem – maybe there was a way that she could help him get his eyes properly aligned….
spoke with our Eye Doctor, then connected him with Nova Optometry Pediatric Department for his specialized optometrist eye exam and then connected him with the Lenscrafters OneSight Program
so he was able to get a new pair of glasses.
also was able to contact a local Pediatric Ophthalmologist, Dr Bruce Miller, for Corey. After a couple of visits to the Ophthalmologist, surgery is now scheduled to correct Corey’s eye turn. Corey’s mother had absolutely NO IDEA
that her son’s eye turn could be resolved – she thought that Corey was just born that way and that nothing could be done about this very cosmetic eye turn problem. She thought that Corey would have to live with his eye turn forever.
Corey and his mother are now eternally thankful to Visionary Eyecare’s lead tech, Carol
, for helping her son to be able to live his life without this troublesome eye turn – called strabismus.

Our patient, Barry, gives a video testimonial about his eye exam experience at Visionary Eyecare (Independent Doctors of Optometry Next to LensCrafters) INSIDE the Sawgrass Mills Mall.
Barry has had eye exams ALL OVER THE WORLD – England, Australia, Asia etc. He came to LensCrafters inside the Sawgrass Mills Mall looking to get a quick eye test done. LensCrafters referred him next door to the Visionary Eye Care office. Barry was used to paying a very minimal fee for a 10-15 minute eye test. He had no idea that an eye exam could be so thorough and comprehensive. When we started doing his eye exam – he was immediately “blown away” by the high-tech equipment, the thorough exam, all of the attention that was given to him and also the caring Optometrist who took A LOT of time to meet his exact needs to ensure that he was completely satisfied.
Barry decided to go ahead and get fit with bifocal contact lenses with Dr Dawn Bearden. An accurate bifocal contact lens examination, done correctly, usually requires several follow up visits. Barry lives in the Bahamas but, he was so impressed with the care at Visionary Eyecare – he decided TO CONTINUE TO FLY BACK AND FORTH to continue his eye care with the Eye Doctor here at Visionary Eyecare!!
Today he was so happy as he left our office – he now could see distance and read up close without wearing his glasses all of the time! He could also now wear those cool non-prescription sunglasses over his bifocal contacts when he is out on his boat or driving in a car during his worldly travels.
Barry says that he will definitely always come back here for his eye care and recommend Visionary Eye Care to all of his friends.
Now THAT is a happy patient!

Allen Picture Eye Chart
Around 10 million school children in America have vision conditions that can negatively affect learning. This can be prevented by taking kids to get their first formal eye exam with an Eye Dr in an Eye Clinic BEFORE they enter school. A child’s first eye test with an Eye Doctor should be done between ages 3 and 4. At Visionary Eyecare in Pembroke Pines, Sunrise (Next to Lenscrafters) and Davie (Next to Pearle Vision) – our Optometrists, Dr Bearden, Dr Tenn and Dr McCulloh, begin to see children at age 4.
Allen Picture Cards
A child does NOT need to be able to verbalize or know their alphabet for the examiner to perform a comprehensive eye examination.
There are numerous eye charts for children!!
Lea Flip Chart
Allen and Lea charts have pictures or shapes on them that youngsters can identify. The Broken wheel chart allows the child to tell the examiner which wheel on the car is “broken” . The Tumbling E chart (also known as the illiterate chart) allows a child to just POINT in the direction that the “legs of the E” are pointing in.
Allen Picture Eye Chart
Often our children can not express to us when they are having problems with their vision. They may not even realize that they are experiencing vision problems. Sometimes children will try to compensate for vision issues by closing one eye, rubbing their eyes excessively, squinting, skipping over words or loose their place when they are reading.
Kids may start having difficulty in school due to an “unknown” reason. A recent study indicated that up to 60 percent of youngsters that have been identified as “problem learners” or “learning disorder” actually suffer from an undetected visual condition.
Tumbling E Eye Chart
A vision problem is not suspected in many children because they were able to pass the school vision screening or the pediatrician vision screening. These children may still have visual issues but, they were not detected on the screening. Only a comprehensive eye exam, done by an Eye Doctor (Optometrist or Ophthalmologist) will be able to detect subtle vision problems.
Broken Wheel Eye Test
Vision issues need to be detected and corrected before age 7 to prevent lifelong problems such as lazy eye (amblyopia), eye turn (strabismus), learning disabilities and behavior problems.
