About Dr. Anita Carleo

Dr. Anita Carleo, therapeutic optometrist and glaucoma specialist, was born and raised in Dallas where she attended the Hockaday School for 14 years. She completed her undergraduate studies at Austin College in Sherman, TX and received her doctorate of optometry degree at the University of Houston College of Optometry (UHCO). During her career, Dr. Anita Carleo has continued to gain invaluable knowledge and experience in the management of many ocular diseases, including dry eye, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. She believes that prevention is key and has developed relationships with surgeons and physicians to help co-manage her patients. She, of course, continues to love the “bread and butter” of optometry; that is, comprehensive eye examinations for both glasses and contact lenses to help all ages see better in their daily lives. She works with her patients to find the best options to suit their lifestyle and recreational activities needs, whether it be that perfect pair of glasses or a specialty multifocal contact lens for freedom and flexibility. Dr. Anita is ready to embark on the new practice she is opening with her sister, Dr. Olivia Carleo. As a family practice, she is excited about being able to provide her patients with the care and attention she would want afforded to any of her own family members. She feels strongly that patients deserve a doctor who will listen to their problems, address and treat their issues, and spend the time needed to answer any and all questions. Dr. Anita Carleo was awarded the Ocular Instruments Award of Excellence for Outstanding Performance in the Study of Ocular Disease. She is a proud member of the Beta Sigma Kappa optometric honor society, the American Optometric Association (AOA), Texas Optometry Association (TOA), Dallas County Optometric Society (DCOS), and Vision Source. In her free time, Dr. Anita enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends. She loves to travel and enjoys reading and outdoor activities such as skiing and summer water sports.

I think Dr Carleo is outstanding. I have only seen her once and she treats me like her most valued patient. She is efficient and a great diagnostician. She saved me from glaucoma and her referral opened doors to top rate care. Her technician staff is just as proficient!

I happened upon Dr. Carleo's office a few years back when I was new to Dallas. Her office was part of my insurance and was nearby. I am very pleased to have found her! Everyone has been friendly at the office and Dr. Carleo is friendly and professional. I also appreciate her able to offer a great referral to an ophthalmologist, just to be completely on the safe side. All seems pretty good with my eyes and glad to have Dr. Carleo keeping watch over them.

I love Dr Carleo and have been a patient of hers for many years. This time was the first time at her current practice, though... I’m (unsurprisingly) impressed with Vision Veritas and the whole crew there (not just Dr Carleo!)

Great doctor, beautiful office, and friendly staff. The only problem was she got backed up and I had to wait 45 minutes in a room just for a follow up.
