Welcome to Our True Focus Eye Care in Port Richey, FL!

When patients walk into True Focus Eye Care for the first time, our optometrists and the rest of our team of eye care professionals want them to feel like they are a part of the family. One of the things we feel distinguishes us from the rest is our dedication to each and every one of our patients. We make sure we keep our schedules open and flexible enough so that we can give each patient all the time they need to have their questions answered, and also give them the opportunity to feel comfortable with the process and or procedure they are going to at the time of their visit. Here are a few other things that make our practice unique and special.



Everybody Is Somebody

Here in our practice, we treat all of our patients like they are the most important people in the world because they are. We don't want people to for their eye doctor appointments, this is why our eye care team does everything in our power to make all of our patients feel right at home.  Our optometry professionals provide comprehensive eye exams and other eye care services to people who have physical and intellectual disabilities. Our team also services infants between the ages of 6 to 12 months for free through the InfantSee Program.  We also want to reach our patients where they are, which is why we have a YouTube page where we will post interesting eye related topics monthly.  You can find our page by searching True Focus Eye Care.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Our eye doctors and our entire team of eye care professionals enjoy teaching our patients about how to keep their eyes healthy.  During our conversations with our patients, we discuss why it is so important to have a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. We also talk about the importance of yearly glaucoma screenings, Plaquenil screenings and diabetic eye evaluations. Our optometrist team can also conduct a LASIK consultation. We believe in the principle of people who know better tend to do better, and there is nothing more exciting to our team to discover our patients are beginning to do their own research on eye health and are starting to incorporate many of the things we’ve discussed into their daily routines.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

    Would highly recommend them! Great customer service and they take the time with each patient to answer any questions you may have!

    Aamantha Aloi

    My son never experienced a full eye exam and this exam went great. The examiner was great with my son, let him ask questions and get over the excitement rather than rushing into the exam. His father and I felt comfortable and informed throughout the entire process. And he did not write an unnecessary RX for my son because he is too young. Overall, great experience, I'm happy his PCP suggested the exam and I'm happy with the referral from insurance. And he's still not over the treasure chest! KID-FRIENDLY!!!

    Chelsea Reyes

    Dr Mathews is so through, knowledgeable and kind.  i wouldn't let anyone else care for my eyes! Lottie is efficient and great too!  She keeps me on schedule and takes care of all my insurance.

    Richard C.

    Met Dr. Shenai a few weeks ago and got my new glasses, he was kind and informative as to what was going on and sent a letter with a hand written more thanking me for choosing him...that to me is great customer service taking the time to go just above and beyond.

    Anthony D.

    I highly recommend this facility!  Dr. Shenai is excellent and explains everything during the exam.  The staff is friendly and helpful, and they have a lovely selection of frames.  I've been a patient here for years and wouldn't go anywhere else!
