Essential Eyecare & Optical knows your eyesight is one of your most important senses: 80% of what we perceive comes through our sense of sight. Many people might think their eyesight is fine, but then they get that first pair of glasses or contact lenses and the world comes into clearer view-everything from fine print to street signs.

Essential Eyecare & Optical specializes in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision, many of which do not have obvious symptoms. They know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for the young and old.

Essential Eyecare & Optical offers a full range of eye health service to clients of all ages, from children to older adults: providing routine eye exams and vision tests, eye disease diagnosis and management, immediate attention for eye emergencies, and complete eye health management. And they offer corrective laser eye surgery co-management as well.   

Eyes are important indicators of overall health for everyone.  Comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. At Essential Eyecare & Optical, they take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Their optometrist provides the expert care, advice, options, and the follow-up you need, whether you are a new patient or an existing one.

If your child is struggling at school, it might be time to schedule an eye exam. Undetected vision problems can impact your child’s performance both in and out of the classroom. Vison problems in children can interfere with reading skills, attention span, social interaction and can affect their confidence with their peers. Common signs that indicate a child might be having difficulty with their vision or eye health are tearing, squinting, light sensitivity and frequent headaches.

An Apopka native, Dr. David Dada attended high school at Forest Lake Academy. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Biology from Gainesville’s University of Florida, and a Bachelor’s of Vision Science and Doctor of Optometry at NOVA Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale.

Dr. Dada’s comprehensive professional training has taken him to various state-of-the-art clinics, such as the VA Clinic, specialty OMD clinics, and various OD-OMD practices. These experiences have shaped him into an exceptionally skilled optometrist. His passion for outreach has led him to participate in different mission trips, including the National Optometric Student Associate and One Sight.

Essential Eyecare & Optical continues taking extra steps to ensure your safety to protect you as well as the staff’s. Please bring a mask or face covering to your appointment to help them conserve PPE for health-care providers. And, they continue to do additional sanitization and cleaning in our office and between patients.
