Advanced Optometry in Palm Bay, FL
Glad Eyecare and Surgery Center offers optometry services to the Palm Bay, FL area. We provide family eye care, including: eye exams, glasses and contact lenses, and an on-site eye glass center for your convenience.
We recommend a yearly eye exam because your eyes can change in that time. When our optometry staff conducts your eye test, it starts with a machine that uses state-of-the-art wavefront technology. The machine measures your vision for distance and reading. This shortens the length of the vision test and gives the eye specialist a more precise starting point. You then get a more accurate eyeglass or contact lens prescription. The best eye doctors know the value of bringing technology to optometry!
A Full-Service Eye Clinic is Optometry at Its Best

Our optical lab is a convenient one-stop shop for our Palm Bay, FL patients. We provide eyewear that protects against UV radiation and also offer Eschenbach low vision aids.
Whether your prescription specifies single vision, bifocals, trifocals, or no-line progressive lenses, our vision center team is trained to provide you with lens options that best meet both your vision needs and your personal preferences. We offer tough and scratch-resistant lens materials and lenses that are free from annoying distortions, which is common in older lens technologies. For children 12 and under, we feature impact-resistant, “kid-safe” polycarbonate lenses.
What is the Difference Between an Optometrist and an Ophthalmologist?
An optometrist is a medical professional who attended a 4-year program and earned a doctor of optometry degree. An optometrist can conduct routine eye exams, prescribe and fit prescription eye glasses and contact lenses, and diagnose eye conditions. Optometrists focus on general vision health.
Dr. Gladnick is a board-certified ophthalmologist, which means he completed medical school, an internship and a residency program. He is a medical doctor who can perform laser eye surgery. Ophthalmologists are physicians who provide complete eye care, ranging from routine eye tests to medical eye care.
