Since graduating from Nova Southeastern University’s College of Optometry with honors, Dr. Seechel Patel has been demonstrating her personalized approach to correcting vision in a private-practice setting. She specializes in contact-lens fittings, glaucoma treatment, and family eyecare, with a particular interest in conducting early childhood exams in a campaign against amblyopia. She is also on hand to offer an opinion or standing ovation as patients model frames from brands such as Gucci, Lafont, or Montblanc.
