on a Thursday and they were able to get me in Monday. Dr. Camargo is very friendly and you are greeted by upbeat staff as soon as you arrive. Jeremy was very attentive during my glasses fitting as well as very knowledgeable and kind. I would recommend St Petersburg Eye Care Specialist to everyone in the area, they do a wonderful job!  Natasha D

Thank you, Jatharine

-11/18/2015 Thanks to Dino and Jeremy of Specs St. Petersburg Eye Care Specialists I left their establishment with the perfect,for me, pair of glasses.  The striped ones were too bold , the black ones were not bold enough.  Patient time was spent with me to to ensure I was satisfied.  We searched the internet until the perfect tortoise frames were found.  Thank you Dino for your patience, thank you Jeremy for making sure there was not a stock issue, thank you, Dani for your courtesy each time I call or come into the office and most of all thank you Dr. Camargo for making sure the perfect prescription was put into my perfect frames..  You all are a great team and I appreciate you.
Thanks you,also for the trust,

-12/15/2015 Tara and Jeremy, I wanted to thank you for re-ordering my Kate Spade sunglasses to replace the pair I lost. It was very kind of you to only charge me materials cost.  Not expected but very appreciated! Enjoy some coffees on me!!!

Thank! Gabriella


-From the eye exam through the selection and fitting of the glasses, visiting SPECS was a great experience.  Dr. Camargo is friendly, informative, and seems to genuinely care about her patients. The equipment she uses is state of the art.  The staff is friendly and provides outstanding customer service and attention to detail.  Jeremy was especially helpful with my eyeglass fitting.  He also went above and beyond my expectations by delivering my glasses on Christmas Eve so I would have them for the holidays.  This is a level of care that is extraordinary today.  I am grateful to St. Petersburg Eye Care Specialists and I am certain they will continue to serve me well for many years to come.  I look forward to recommending them to everyone I know.

-We were on a year-long trip in our boat, when, just before arriving in St. Petersburg,  my primary glasses ended up in the Gulf.   It had been over one year since my last eye exam so I made an appointment at SPECS.  Dr. Tara Camargo did a wonderful job.  I picked out a pair of frames with Jeremy’s help and a week later the trifocal prescription was ready.  I’m extremely pleased.  The lenses were aligned perfectly – something I’ve had trouble with in the past – and the prescription was right on.
Also, while we were there, my wife spotted a pair of sunglasses she liked.  Jeremy was able to get her prescription from our hometown OD (in Northwest Indiana) and the bifocal shades were also ready the next week.
We both are very pleased with the service we received and we highly recommend SPECS.  In fact, we wonder if we can be in St. Petersburg when it’s time for our next set of glasses.Bob and Lenore B.
-We LOVE our new Specs glasses, and the staff at SPECS! Many thanks to Jeremy and Tara!

-Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. My son received his glasses today. He’s letting us ALL know that he can SEE. LOL

I believe this is going to be life changing for him. Thanks again!

-The folks at SPECS are wonderful. They take really great care if you and I have to say Doctor Tara nailed my glasses prescription better than anyone ever had and I’ve been getting them for 40 years. Go to them for your next eye exam and glasses or contacts, you won’t be disappointed….Paul

-Great place, friendly staff and the Doc nailed my prescription!! I have never seen this clear! Felix

-All thumbs up! to Saint Petersburg Eye Care Specialists-SPECS, in downtown St. Pete. ‘Shop local’ (fabulous selection of eyewear!) and enjoy the friendly, welcoming atmosphere at SPECS. Dr. Camargo (Tara), husband Jeremy, and their great staff are professional in every way, and it is obvious they aim to make their customers happy. A relaxing, super-nice experience!

-I have been working with Jeremy Camargo at SPECS for over 1 year now and he has proven himself and his company to be an exceptional choice for eye care and superb customer service.Huge selection of only the best manufacturers and quick turnaround.

My wife and I both go here and it is always a very pleasant experience.

Without hesitation, hands-down I recommend SPECS with Dr. Tara and her awesome team to anyone!  Myself being in the medical field, I know what a difficult patient is and unfortunately I was becoming one. It was almost impossible to leave during business hours, I had a history of eye surgeries, injuries, astigmatism, etc. Every single person on staff at SPECS was always helpful, kind, and went out of their way to find a (more than) favorable solution to any issues that arose.  I am so grateful that a friend referred me to SPECS!

–Great place for eye wear. Very attentive and friendly. Recommend highly.

 SPECS, Dr. Camargo, and Mr. Camargo are without question the best optometry team that I have ever been treated by. They and their staff are always warm and welcoming. Dr. Camargo is very knowledgeable. She helped me find a better fitting, more comfortable contact lens than I had been prescribed by my last eye doctor. Mr. Camargo went the extra mile with me to find the right frames, both stylistically and fit-wise, despite me being pretty picky and wanting to try on half his inventory.

Tara and Jeremy are absolutely fantastic! Everyone here is super professional from the moment you walk in the door. This is my second year coming here and would not go anywhere else.
Very minimal wait before getting my eyes dilated and seeing Dr. Camargo (Tara). I love the hours they offer here, staying open later on certain nights for us 9-5ers. While I was waiting after dilation, I checked out their great selection of designer frames. I decided on a pair of carrera frames this year, chose ray band last year. I was in and out of there in less than 45 minutes. Jeremy even offered to get me new lenses for my old ray bans, as they were scratched pretty badly and still under manufacture warranty. The people here are beyond friendly and inviting, including Dani at the front desk! The office has a cool retro feel, including the artwork on the west side of the building (be sure to take a look on the way out!)

Dr Camargo and her staff are outstanding. I had previously had no good experiences with eye exams or purchasing glasses or contacts. After a thorough exam, I was fitted for contacts with a full explanation of all of my options. I am a HUGE baby when it comes to having my eyes dilated. Dr Camargo explained that lighter eyes dilate easier. From start to finish I am so impressed with this office and staff!! Thank you for a wonderful experience! 11/15/2018 Phyllis G.
