Welcome to Florida Eye Doctors
Your Trusted Eye Doctors in Naples and Lake Worth FL.
Dr. Salvatore DeCanio & Associates have been providing professional, attentive eye care to residents of South Florida since 1981. With offices in Naples , our optometrists are pleased to continue Florida Eye Doctors’ reputation as honest, caring eye doctors you can trust with your eye health.
We’ll give it to you straight. We’ll let you know if you’ve been misled; if you have an eye disease such as glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration or an eye condition like keratoconus; if your habits could lead to pink eye or corneal abrasions; if we think your child could benefit from Ortho-K contact lenses; and simply if we think you picked the best contacts or eyeglasses for your 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.

Our Patients Say It Best!
Dr. DeCanio is absolutely fantastic! He was very thorough in his explanation of the problems with my eyes (my bad for wearing my contacts waaay too long at a time!) and he explained about my astigmatism and not only that he changed my prescription as my contacts that I have been wearing which were prescribed to me by another Optometrist was not even correct nor were they contacts for astigmatism! I have never seen more clearly in my life and my eyes feel wonderful!!!! Thanx Dr. D!
As soon as I walked in the front office staff were immediately available and escorted me to my appt. The doctor was thorough and look forward to seeing if the eyeglasses and prescription makes a difference in my vision.
I recently had a problem with chronic red eyes after having a sinus infection. I was on eye drops, steroids, and antibiotics. The sinuses went away but the chronic red eye and uncomfortableness would NOT go away. Battling for months, in and out of MD now and hospitals. Also not being able to see or wear contacts was a huge struggle. It was hard to fit making an eye appointment with my doctor due to my busy schedule. I finally made it to the doctor, he examined my eyes and realized what I had was not being treated properly. I was diagnosed with kertoconjuntivitis corneal ulcers. He found out what the issue was and prescribed me the correct drops and care. I am so happy with how he found out what was wrong and we able to help me. Chronic red eyes and uncomfortableness was really affecting my daily life. I am so thankful with my experience with Dr. Salvatore, he is an amazing doctor! I’m so happy

I have been to a couple of eye doctors, this is definitely the first time that I felt valued. Dr Salvatore took the time to answer all of my questions, was very patient with me and explained with detail every step of the procedure, he added a personal touch that many people forget to have with the consumers. I recommend strongly to visit this awesome place everyone in that office is just great.
I was very impressed with Dr. DeCanio, he listened to my concerns and asked me questions that no other eye doctor in the last 30 years has ever asked me before.

He patiently answered my many questions and he truly wants his patients to have the best care and service.
The doctor was very helpful. Also kind. I would like to see him again.
He was great!!! very help full and great with kids. I had 2 appointment for my son and I and I was there for only a hour without feeling like I was rushed to get the next person in.

It has been years since I last went to an eye doctor’s office, but if I had experienced what I experienced today with Dr. DeCanio I wouldn’t have waited all these years. He was and is fantastic. I will be sending my wife and two daughters to see him shortly.

Focus on Contact Lenses
Our eye doctor specializes in hard to fit contact lenses. In addition we stock the latest contact lenses at great prices. We have a full selection of daily disposable contact lenses, weekly, monthly and more. Advances in contact lens technology means even if you experienced discomfort in the past with contact use, such as dry or tired eyes, there are contact lenses right for you!
There are many optometrists in Naples that offer eye care. What sets us apart from the others is our commitment to investing in the latest technology to offer our patients the very best eye care. An example is our optomap® Retinal Exam which takes ultra high definition images of the retina, allowing our eye doctor to see things others cannot, all without dilating your eyes!
Comprehensive Eye Exams

Our eye doctor treats every patient as if they were family, providing the absolute highest level of eyecare and providing each patient with attention and care. Whether you are looking for an eye exam for your child or eye care for medical issues like glaucoma, dry eyes and macular degeneration, our optometrist is here for you.
Second Opinion - When is it a good time?
- I’m just not happy with how I am seeing with my new eyeglass and/or contact lens prescription?
- The previous eye doctor didn’t address my concerns and/or did not explain important things to me.
- I felt I was rushed and was not able to have my questions answered.
- My vision is still blurry and I don’t know what’s really going on with my eyes and vision.
- The treatment plan I was given is just not working, even despite multiple visits.
We believe in informing our valued patients openly and explaining things in terms you can well understand. Straightforward answers to your important questions, professionally.
Make a more informed decision about your care by verifying your diagnosis and learning about advanced treatments not offered at all eye doctors.
You are in good hands at Florida Eye Doctors, the trusted practice for a second opinion in Naples, Florida.

Don't take matters into your own hands, call our office and ask if the emergency warrants a visit to an optometrist.

- Eye infections
- Foreign materials stuck in the eyes

What is “ORTHO-K for KIDS?”
IMAGINE your child not having to wear their glasses throughout the day!
Ortho -K, short for ortho-keratology, is a very safe and successful, FDA approved method to slow or even stop myopia progression in your child. Well researched and clinically studied, this non-surgical, painless procedure involves reshaping the cornea (the front window surface of the eye) to change its prescription power by wearing a contact lens every night at bedtime and is removed every morning upon awakening. When your child wakes up everyday they have 20/20 vision without the need for eyeglasses!
Ortho-K is perfect for:
- Athletes, to avoid risk of injury from contact sports.
- Teens who don’t like the look of Glasses.
- Teens that tend to break and lose things often.
- Teens who are not able to wear standard contact lenses.
- Teens with Dry eyes or discomfort from contact lenses.
- Individuals that are too young to be eligible for Lasik surgery.
We offer the residents of Naples Florida the highest standard of Ortho-K treatment. Our Optometrist is a founding member of the Optometric Council on Refractive Technology and has over 15 years of dedicated experience in Advanced Vision Correction.
Set up an appointment with our eye doctors to schedule a straightforward evaluation to see if your child is a good candidate.
