Our eye surgeons are recognized in the region as the top sub-specialists in their fields. We specialize in laser cataract surgery, laser refractive surgery (LASIK), cosmetic lid surgery, and glaucoma. The physicians of Florida Eye Specialists share a common passion for excellence in eye care. Each one has dedicated numerous years of medical school, residency, fellowship and post-fellowship training to research and education in eye disease. Each doctor is uniquely qualified in a sub-specialty of ophthalmology.

Our team of highly trained and educated surgeons includes two former directors of LASIK for the University of Florida and the Mayo Clinic, over 33 years combined experience at Mayo Clinic, with training degrees from prestigious institutions like: Vanderbilt Medical Center, Wills Eye Institute, Baylor College of Medicine, Duke University and University of Florida–dedication, training and education that’s hard to beat.
Excellence in Eye Care
From simple eye exams to complex surgery using the very latest technology, it’s all here.
