As a licensed optometrist, Dr. Del Vecchio provides exams, diagnoses, and treatments of all disorders that affect the eye or vision.

With this background, Dr. Del Vecchio is trained to recognize a range of health issues; such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes and hypertension. Dr. Del Vecchio works hard to stay current on the latest advances in eye health and vision care and regularly attends continuing education seminars and advanced training courses. It is because of Dr. Del Vecchio 's dedication to continuing education that our Homestead patients receive the most modern and progressive vision care available.


 Our practice has grown and, in order to continue providing you with the best standard of care, we have brought on a new provider. We are very excited to welcome the newest addition to our team, Dr. Stephanie Castellanos, O.D, to Del Family Eyecare.

Dr. Castellanos attended Florida International University for her undergraduate degree in Biology. She obtained her doctorate of Optometry at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Philadelphia. Dr. Castellanos is a current member of the Florida Optometric Association and the Miami Dade Optometric Physicians Association.

Dr. Castellanos brings enthusiasm and a kind, gentle nature with her to our practice. Her interests include traveling, taking nature walks, and spending time with her family. I am confident you will find Dr. Castellanos’s personality and style to complement our friendly and warm optometry team.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Stephanie Castellanos to our practice. We trust that the addition of Dr. Castellanos will allow us to not only meet, but exceed your expectations.

Dr. Castellanos states, “An Eye exam doesn’t have to be all about eyes and glasses. I’m looking forward to forming new friendships, bonding over the latest foodie haunts, tasty recipes, the next “IT” travel destination, or the next fashion trend! I can’t wait to meet all of you and take care of your eyes!”
