the eye institute of west florida


The Eye Institute of West Florida
is the premier ophthalmology center in Tampa Bay.

For more than 40 years The Eye Institute of West Florida has been providing world-class eye care in a warm, personal environment. Founded by Dr. Stephen Weinstock in 1974, he has remained focused on the tradition of excellent service and devotion to patients as he continued to grow his practice.

We now have a team of 27 board-certified and fellowship-trained ophthalmologists and optometrists to provide comprehensive, coordinated care for all your eye care and vision needs at six convenient locations in the Tampa Bay area.

The physicians at The Eye Institute of West Florida are accomplished ophthalmologists with subspecialty training in all major areas of ophthalmology. Our specialists are available to diagnose and treat all of the different ocular conditions, including cataracts; refractive treatments, such as LASIK or a Clear Lens Exchange; glaucoma; retinal diseases, including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy; and oculoplastic procedures, such as eyelid surgery.

The Eye Institute of West Florida offers comprehensive world-class care at locations in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Largo, and Clearwater. Our doctors rotate office locations to provide patients routine exams, consults to review treatment options, and post-surgical appointments. The location of your appointment will depend on your eye condition, which specialist can best serve you, the urgency of your visit, and your location preference.

Surgical procedures including LASIK, cataract surgery and clear lens exchange will always take place at our main office in Largo at our Largo Ambulatory Surgical Center. This dual-accredited surgery center, which is adjacent to The Eye Institute of West Florida, was designed specifically for the treatment of eye diseases and disorders.

Providing a wonderful patient experience is a part of our culture.

Whether you are visiting The Eye Institute of West Florida, the Aesthetic Institute, or the Weinstock Laser Eye Center, we make it easy for you to receive comprehensive, coordinated care.
