Dr. Juan Canizales, Optometrist


I am excited to be part of the great eye care team at Vision Loft. I grew up in Miami, FL and graduated from Nova Southeastern College of Optometry in Fort Lauderdale. I was fortunate enough to do part of my externship rotations at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, which is still regarded as the best eye hospital in the United States.

I am licensed to practice optometry in Florida, Hawaii, and both South and North Carolina. While in Florida, I was able to practice alongside my father, an Ophthalmologist and my mentor. He is now retired and living in Central America. My sister, who lives in England, is also an Optometrist. You can say that a passion for eye care runs in the family.

I moved to Charlotte, North Carolina in the beginning of 2012. I had visited previously and enjoyed the great food, the beautiful hiking, and the welcoming people. I knew right away that it was the place for me. Charlotte is also where I met my wife, Lauren; we played volleyball for a local recreational league. In our spare time, Lauren and I love to travel. I always enjoy hearing about my patient’s travels!

Come in for an eye exam and swap travel stories with me. I also speak Spanish (yo hablo Espanolhabloyo hablo Espanol).
