Bio"THE EYE IS THE LAMP OF THE BODY. IF YOUR EYES ARE GOOD, YOUR BODY WILL BE FULL OF LIGHT."
I have been an Optometrist for twenty-four years. Before joining Family Vision Health Center, I practiced in the Holmdel and Tinton Falls areas for over ten years, associated with Dr. Anthony Micale, M.D. I graduated from the State University of New York College of Optometry in 1988, with an internship in visual therapy. My background and degree in Education give me a special ability to work with children and adolescents. As an Optometrist my goal is to provide broad based, full scope vision care, including comprehensive vision and eye health testing; detailed tests and treatment of eye diseases and disorders; visual-perceptual and binocular evaluations; consultation for laser refraction procedures; and the latest in healthy, comfortable contact lenses. I am dedicated to providing quality care with patience and compassion.

Our children's section has frames within their arms' reach to simplify frame selection. All of our products are competitively priced, with several pricing packages available.

Are you a good candidate for Laser Corrective Surgery?
The best decisions are informed decisions. It is our goal to make sure that you have a complete understanding of the benefits and risks of Laser Corrective Surgery. Dr. Carotenuto is trained in pre-operative and post-operative care. We are here to discuss all options available to you.
From the first PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) procedure done in 1990 to the equally popular LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis) performed today more and more of our patients are benefiting from the advances in technology. We are pleased to offer pre-operative consultation and post-operative follow-up to those who wish to take a break from their glasses and/or contact lenses. Call us today for more information.
Exam InfoProfessional Eye Examination
A comprehensive examination consists of over thirty different tests and can vary considerably depending on the age and visual needs of the patient. We use the most advanced equipment available to provide this thorough assessment.
A comprehensive assessment begins with a determination of the patient's visual needs and concerns. This is followed by a complete medical, ocular and family history.
Current visual status is determined by measuring the level of vision (visual acuity). This is frequently performed with existing spectacles or contact lenses.
An external examination of the eye is performed to evaluate the movements of the eye, the response of the pupils to light as well as health of the eyelids and surrounding tissues.
Internal examination is performed to assess ocular health. Most patients will be dilated to some degree for this testing. This allows evaluation for various eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Many systemic health problems such as Diabetes potentially have ocular side effects that can permanently impair vision.
Refractive assessment is performed to determine the spectacle or contact lens prescription. Many patients have visual demands related to their occupations and hobbies that require special prescriptions.
All patients over the age of eighteen should be screened for Glaucoma. This test is painless and is especially important in any patient who exhibits risk factors including other family member(s) with Glaucoma.
Once your visual examination is completed, the doctor will summarize the findings and will make any necessary recommendations.
