Meet the Treasure Coast Opticians Team

Our skilled team of opticians and optometrists will guide you thoughtfully through the entire eyewear fitting and exam process. We’ll ensure a perfect fit and conduct a complete eye exam using the latest in technology to provide a highly accurate evaluation of your vision, and then recommend a quality lens to fit your vision needs. Recommendations may include single-vision, bi-focal, progressive, transition, UV or polarized lenses, as well as a number of popular contact lens options.

Our Optometrist

Dr. Steve Stubits
Independent Board Certified Optometrist

Dr. Steve Stubits attended Florida Atlantic University, and graduated from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee. Upon graduation, he joined his family in a busy optical practice in Fernandina Beach, Florida, where he remained for over 30 years. The desire to find a warmer locale prompted a move to Vero Beach which accompanied an offer to join the team at Treasure Coast Opticians. As an independent optometrist, Steve is a member of the American Optometric Association, the Treasure Coast Optometric Association and is affiliated with several local eye-care specialists. Dr. Stubits is committed to providing the highest level of vison care to his patients utilizing the latest optometric equipment. When possible, he prefers using the new retinal imaging system replacing dilation in most cases. He also utilizes an anterior eye imaging camera which enables the patient to see magnified images of their eyes and view the clarity of their lens. This high-tech equipment combined with Dr. Stubits’ vast optical experience promises a very thorough eye exam. Dr. Stubits has two children, both working in the healthcare field. He enjoys boating, golfing and fishing.
