Get to know Optometrist Dr. Allison Dickson, who serves patients in Odessa, Florida.

Dr. Dickson is a certified optometrist at Dr. Allison Dickson, Optometrist, and Associates – Odessa, located within Pearle Vision in Odessa, Florida. 

Passionate about providing personalized, patient-focused eye care, she practices full-scope optometry, including ocular disease management and advanced contact lens fittings. She is committed to stay on the cutting edge of medicine and technology to provide the absolute highest level of care.

“At Dr. Allison Dickson, Optometrist, and Associates – Odessa, we are a dedicated team of eye care experts that provide you and your family the highest quality eye care experience. Combined with our personal commitment to care for the person behind the eyes, our state-of-the-art technology and equipment allow us to provide you with an optimal vision care solution designed just for you” as stated on their website. 

In regards to her educational background, Dr. Dickson’s undergraduate studies took place at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. There, she studied psychology to better understand the human dynamic before knowing she would eventually pursue an education and career in optometry.

While attending the Michigan College of Optometry, where she graduated with high honors, she took part in a mission trip providing eye exams and glasses to 400 Bulgarian people living in poverty.

Her clinical experience has exposed her to many eye conditions and diseases, treatment protocols, and technology options. Dr. Dickson’s philanthropic spirit has brought her across the globe. Her education, while primarily in Michigan, did send her to Largo, Florida, for a few short months where she interned at a full-service eye care clinic and surgical center. When the opportunity arose at Robson Eye Institute in Clearwater, she jumped at the chance to move her family to the warm, southern sun. 

Now, she is in practice with Pearle Vision, where she enjoys treating individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Her current endeavors include specialty contact lens fitting and advanced treatment of dry eye disease, and she plans to grow these areas to include a myopia management clinic and dry eye spa.

With ample experience, Dr. Dickson is an active member of Optometry Divas, the Pinellas Optometric Association, the Florida Optometric Association, and the American Optometric Association.

Optometry is a health care profession that involves examining the eyes and applicable visual systems for defects or abnormalities, as well as diagnosing and managing eye disease. Optometrists are healthcare professionals who provide primary eye care through comprehensive eye examinations to detect and treat various visual abnormalities and eye diseases. Being a regulated profession, an optometrist’s scope of practice may differ depending on the location. Thus, disorders or diseases detected outside the treatment scope of optometry (i.e. those requiring certain surgical interventions) are referred out to relevant medical professionals for proper care, more commonly to ophthalmologists who are physicians that specialize in the tertiary medical and surgical care of the eye. Optometrists typically work closely together with other eye care professionals, such as ophthalmologists and opticians, to deliver quality and efficient eye care to the general public.

Happily married, Dr. Dickson, her husband Jared, their daughter, and their big, friendly Newfoundland-Lab pup enjoy an abundance of family time. Together, they enjoy biking on the shoreline, visiting the shops and eateries in the area, and attending church.
