The Eye Institute offers some of the most experienced Optometric Physicians in Florida. Their expertise and dedication have earned them national recognition as leaders in their field. Optometrists work with patients and our physicians in diagnosing conditions, prescribing eyewear and referring diseases and disorders to the appropriate specialist within our practice for the highest level of care, all under one roof.
At The Eye Institute, we utilize Physician Assistants (PAs) to aid in the care of patients. Our Physician Assistants are Florida licensed and act under the direct supervision of our physicians. In addition to being highly educated, they frequently perform clinical rotations in surgery, assisting physicians and advancing their knowledge and training. Services performed by our PAs include screenings, pre-operative physicals, and non-emergency evaluations.
Most diagnostic procedures are performed by one of our Ophthalmic Technicians (COA). Our Ophthalmic Technicians are specifically trained in their respective positions within The Eye Institute of West Florida. They undergo rigorous training before certification is earned from The Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology (JCAHPO). The Eye Institute of West Florida is an ophthalmic facility where patients are cared for by a knowledgeable, and well- trained and friendly staff.
