As a therapeutic optometrist, Dr. Carey Patrick’s passion is helping people see clearly – especially young children and babies who don’t realize the world isn’t naturally fuzzy – and helping parents understand their child’s behavioral issues could be vision-related.
Dr Patrick, who is President of the Northeast Texas Optometric Association (TOA), earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Houston. She is active in the American Optometric Association (AOA) and its Pediatric and Binocular Vision Council and Cornea and Contact Lens Specialty Section.
Dr. Patrick currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Texas Optometric Association, is chair of the TOA Third Party Insurance Committee and former chair of the TOA Public Health Committee where she coordinates statewide participation of doctors for InfantSEE, VisionUSA, glaucoma, diabetes, children’s vision and low vision recovery programs.
As a participating provider for InfantSEE, Dr. Patrick provides a comprehensive ocular health and vision development assessment to children between the ages of six and 12 months to detect potential eye and vision problems as a complement to the routine eye screening conducted in a pediatric well-care visit.
Dr. Patrick won national recognition as the Outstanding Graduate Professional in 2002 for her research and treatment of aniseikonia, a condition in which the shape and size of the ocular image differ in each eye.
She has twice been nominated for Fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry, the professional organization which recognizes outstanding contributors to optometry and the vision care profession. In 2012, Dr. Patrick completed her Board Certification requirements and anticipates adding this credential to her resume when the American Board of Optometry convenes in the fall.
Dr. Patrick serves on the Board of Directors of the Allen-Fairview Chamber of Commerce, is a founding member of the Fairview Economic Development Council, and volunteers with the Allen Lion’s Club annual mobile eye clinic.
Our Primetimers group was just treated with a 5-star presentation by Dr. Carey Patrick. She had the most informative, informational and relaxed presentation on “eating the right foods.” Afterwards, she answered many questions and gave our members an insight into the importance of eating right and drinking lots of water. We thank you for making this program available. – Kenneth Goddard, Primetimers – Resurrection Lutheran Church, Plano
