In March 2007, Mike moved to South Florida, where he began working with TLC of Coral Gables while also assisting various Optometric practices in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. He continued to work in the laser vision/refractive surgery segment of Optometry as the full-time Clinical Optometrist at LasikPlus in Coral Springs, FL from April 2008-December 2010. After returning to general Optometric practice within several local practices throughout most of 2011, Dr Lopykinski decided to open his own private practice in Deerfield Beach, FL in April 2012……20/20 Eye Associates was born.

At 20/20 Eye Associates, Dr. Lopykinski provides primary eye care to a multilingual (English, Spanish, Portuguese) patient base with a wide age range and eye care needs.

Over the years, Dr. Lopykinski has learned to use a variety of contact lenses depending on his patient’s individual needs…..soft sphere, toric, multifocal, and colored lenses…..as well as gas permeable sphere, toric, and multifocal. In addition, Mike enjoys developing specialty contact lenses for patients with corneal disease (such as keratoconus and pellucid marginal degeneration) as well as patients with other unique contact lens needs (such as post-corneal transplant, trauma, etc.)
