Florida Eye Specialists is Jacksonville’s leading comprehensive eye care center. We are the largest multispecialty ophthalmology private practice in North Florida and South Georgia. 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. 

Bringing the best to Jacksonville

We brought together three very successful ophthalmology practices in Jacksonville: Florida Eye Specialists, Chokshi Vision Center and Eagle Eye Care Group. Combining practices brought new services and convenient availability for our patients. Jacksonville now has access to fellowship-trained specialists in all areas of ophthalmology. Together, our team of specialists has developed a leading eye care center with an emphasis on compassionate, patient-centered treatments. Our patients enjoy the latest in diagnostic equipment, state-of-the-art ophthalmology treatment and surgery along with friendly, quality patient care.

Experience You Can Trust

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. We take pride in the fact that our surgeons, together with our team of experts in the field of ophthalmology, provide our patients with exceptional personal care for all of their eye care needs.

Excellence in Eye Care

From simple eye exams to complex surgery using the very latest technology, it’s all here. Today, we have five locations throughout North Florida in Fernandina Beach, Ponte Vedra, Riverside, San Marco and Southside. We are dedicated to leading the way with the latest advancements for helping people see clearly. We were the first in the Jacksonville Area with LenSx®, laser assisted cataract surgery. Florida Eye Specialists represents a consortium of the largest and most respected ophthalmic practices in the Jacksonville area. By bringing in all the top doctors, top staff, and top administrators we have built a company that strives for excellence in all aspects of modern eye care. This is how a vision practice should be—the latest technology, in the most experienced hands, guided by professionals who value their patients above all else. This is the future of vision care. This is Florida Eye Specialists.
