Eye Site Vision Center in Coral Springs has been a leader in eye care and frame fashion since 1998, more than 14 years! Dr. Gary Goberville is the caring gentleman at the center of the practice. The beautiful, recently renovated facility is one of three offices run by the Doctor, several knowledgeable and friendly assistants, and two other part time optometrists.
Dr. Goberville’s passion is family eyecare, and his specialties are children and contacts. He believes vision therapy is essential for children who require help for reading and focus issues. “I’m very involved in vision and sports training for the eyes,” Dr. Goberville says. “Contacts are very crucial, but we also have glasses for the kids who don’t wear contacts.”
And for both adults and their younger counterparts who don’t or cannot wear contacts, Dr. Goberville is proud of the selection of frames, many of them exclusive, available at his office. “We have designers like Judith Lieber, David Yurman and Lindberg Eyewear. We also make our own lenses and have a quick turn-around for our clients.” And if you have frames that you just can’t bear to part with, but are in need of an updated lens prescription, Eye Site Vision Center is one of few places that will manufacture new lenses that will fit your favorite frames.
Dr. Goberville did his undergraduate studies at the University of Florida and Tulane, going on to the College of Optometry in Boston. “I played a few years of football in college,” he says without any sign of braggadocio. “I also played semi-pro volleyball. My son plays baseball now, so I’m very involved in sports.” So much so that Dr. Goberville has been exclusively selected to do the vision screening for all of the athletes in the Florida Atlantic University sports programs. “I became an optometerist so I could help people,” he says humbly. “When they can see better, it’s very important for their lifestyle… and for kids with better vision, they are able to learn easier. Many studies show that kids learn better when they can see better.” It sounds logical, but many small children who show delays are simply hindered by their inability to see properly. Dr. Goberville’s compassion for others and his desire to help them live to their utmost ability is clearly elucidated in his practice. “What we do is important and there are a lot of things that can occur in the eye. We want to be sure our patients have good vision for years to come.”
