Oviedo and Port St John Eye Care are family-owned and operated optometry practices located in Oviedo and Port St John, Florida. We have been serving our communities for almost 15 years and hope to do so for a long time in the future. Dr. Robert Webster and Dr. LaRue Collins are Board Certified Optometrists, licensed in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and infections. Before taking over the practice in 2010, Dr. Webster was Dr. Collins' associate doctor for almost 9 years.
We take pride in our family and our community. Our practice strives to maintain an active role in our community by taking part in charitable organizations like the Lions Club (we currently accept your old eyeglasses for donations to the Lion's Club) and Baby DJ toy drive. We are in the process of making our offices as green as possible by switching to all-natural cleaners, beginning recycling initiatives and using recyclable polyethylene bags.
We understand the importance of family and strive to treat every patient of ours like they are a member of our own. We will offer only the highest-quality products and hire only the best-trained personnel to serve our patients and community while offering prices that match every budget.

Jennifer M. Vetere -- Practice Manager, Oviedo & Port St. John Since 2010
Having worn glasses since the fifth grade, Jennifer has a passion for eye health and eye wear that translates well into her position with Oviedo & Port St. John Eye Care.

Patient care and satisfaction are paramount to her as the Practice Manager. If you ever have any concerns, comments or praise, never hesitate to email her (please link to this email).

Ashley -- Optical Sales since 2013
As a new member of the team, I'm thrilled to be a part of Port St. John Eye Care. I am the daughter of a licensed Optician who owned several optical shops, and have been helping out in the optical since I was just a young child. In addition to my childhood experience within an optical setting, I recently moved here from Dallas, where I worked in a very high-end optical. I am looking forward to starting my apprenticeship and becoming a licensed Optician at Port St. John Eye Care. I can help with everything from frame selection to the best lenses for your needs, so please don't hesitate to stop by and see me.
Jose -- Lab Manager since 2012
I feel honored to have taken over the Lab Manager duties from the previous managers and work diligently to ensure that all of lenses we send to our patients are 100% accurate and well-made. My position is one of the most important in the office as my work has a significant impact on how our patients will see with our glasses. I take pride in my work and what I do. I have worked inside optical labs for over 15 years and was a licensed Optician in Puerto Rico.
I first joined the team in 2012, when I moved from Puerto Rico to the Oviedo area, where I worked in Optical Sales for the Oviedo location. When the lab position became available, I moved to Port St. John and joined the team in this office. In my spare time, I love running, paint ball, and spending time with my wife. If you ever have problems, please don't hesitate to email me.
Wendy -- Optometric Technician since 2013
I am excited to be a part of the Port St. John Eye Care team. While I am new to the Optometric field, I am looking forward to growing my skills within the area. Working under Dr. Tran and Dr. Webster has been an amazing experience and has given me the ability to learn my new skills quickly. I am looking forward to growing even more with the team and meeting all the wonderful patients who come through our doors!
Rico -- Office Manager and Optical Sales since 2013
I have been in the optical business for over 23 years, working in every aspect from surfacing and finishing, to optical sales. I love optics and traveling! Originally from Miami, I have worked in optical locations in London, St. Martin, and St. Lucia before finally settling down in Oviedo. After having worked in corporate locations, private practices, and government organizations, I can happily say that the team at Oviedo Eye Care is one of the best I have come across in my career.
I have a lovely wife and a young son, love to work out, and am allergic to cheese. I honestly and truly love life.
Kimberly -- Optical Sales since 2012
I love working with Oviedo Eye Care -- everyone is like a family! I am pursuing a physician's assistant degree and first started as a part-time technician. However, I've learned and grown so much that I've since learned contact lenses and am now one of their optical sales associates. I love learning about the latest in technologies and helping patients pick out frames that make them look amazing. I love to read, spend time with my family, go the beach, and take my dog, Memphis, on walks.
Being a care provider is a wonderful and exciting opportunity for me to learn and at the same time provide excellent service to all of our valuable patients.
Brandi -- Front Desk, Insurance Verification Since 2011
I have been in the insurance field for over two years and with Oviedo Eye Care for a little less than a year. I am a Chicago native by way of Cincinnati, so living in Florida has required a lot of temperature adjustment! I enjoy my free time with my husband and son. I am responsible for the front desk duties and scheduling. If you ever need to schedule an appointment or have any questions, never hesitate to contact me.
Krystal -- Optometric Technician since 2012
As the newest member of Oviedo Eye Care, I'm looking forward to establishing myself as a prominent member of the team. I joined the Oviedo Eye Care team after moving here from Miami with my little one.
Traci -- Contact Lens Technician since 2012
I have worked within Optometric practices for three years, performing technician and contact lens duties. I love my position with Oviedo Eye Care, as it's allowed me to grow and learn more about contact lenses than I could have imagined just a few short years ago! I love to spend time with my family, watching movies, bike riding, and going to the beach -- basically anything you can do outdoors! I love that this is a very fast-paced office and can meet such wide variety of lovely patients.
I am currently going to school for Radiography.
