Florida Eye Cares Is Shaping the Future of Eye Care in Northeast Florida
Providing excellence in eye care for all of us in the greater Jacksonville area is our passion and commitment. Challenges are immense—rising health care costs, an aging population, declining insurance reimbursement and a fragmented system.
That’s why we founded our non-profit organization, Florida Eye Cares. Through our philanthropic efforts, we give crucial vision-saving surgeries, provide greater public awareness of eye disease, world class educational programs for local eye doctors, and build a future of affordable eye care.
ANNUAL HOLIDAY CHARITY EVENT
On a local level, the Florida Eye Cares team pays it forward by donating cataract and other eye surgeries to deserving patients in need. In 2020 and 2021, Florida Eye Specialists doctors donated their time at annual holiday charity cataract surgery events to restore sight for dozens of Jacksonville residents.
PRO BONO SURGERIES
The dedicated doctors of Florida Eye Specialists regularly donate their time to perform glaucoma surgeries, cornea transplants, cataract surgeries, and more to transform the lives of many patients. Read some of their stories here:

FLORIDA EYE CARES EYEGLASS DONATION DRIVE
Many living abroad face common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism yet cannot afford the luxury of glasses to correct these simple issues. Florida Eye Cares has partnered with villages throughout rural areas of India to provide a variety of eyeglasses to make a difference in their lives.
When you donate a pair of glasses, our volunteers will clean the glasses, sort them by prescription, and prepare them for shipment. Call us today to find out how you can participate in our eyeglass donation drive.
