  • About the Doctor:Dr. Amy (Warren) Carlyle, started her career with a residency in ocular disease at Capital Eye consultants in Fairfax, VA. This intensive training program gave her the skills and comfort level to manage a wide variety of eye diseases. She then worked in primary care and chose to specialize as a certified Low Vision Examiner. In addition to onsite training at Virginia Vision Therapy Center, Dr. Carlyle has completed an intense education program in Vision Therapy and Vision Dysfunction given by OEP. She enjoys working with children 6 months and up and is a participant in screening programs for Infants and Special Olympics participants. Outside of optometry, she has been a children and youth volunteer in her church and local public schools. She is a fan of outdoor recreation and met her love of a husband playing on a co-ed softball team. God has given them four wonderful young children, and a few dogs so they have no problem staying active! A native of the New Jersey Shore and a beach bum at heart, Dr. Carlyle is blessed to have had the opportunity to work alongside phenomenal eye care physicians and is now excited to share her skills at WVC in the sunny Gulf Coast of Florida.

    Q Name of practice?

    The practice was established in 1957 by Dr. John “Jack” Walesby, Sr., where he began doing vision therapy with one therapist and treated 4 to 6 therapy patients per day, in addition to providing comprehensive eye care for the entire family. His son, Dr. Rob Walesby, joined him in 1992 and carried on the tradition until retirement. In 2006, Dr. Thomas joined the practice and took over as the Clinical Director of Therapy.
