A message from Florida Eye Institute’s Board of Directors.

Welcome to Florida Eye Institute, your number one source for expert eye care on the Treasure Coast! It’s not every job that allows the opportunity to help others see the world in a better light, but that’s exactly what happens every day for all of us here at Florida Eye Institute.

We’re dedicated to enhancing your vision and quality of life through specialized attention and advanced diagnostic and treatment options delivered by a highly trained staff.

Founded in 1985 in Vero Beach, Florida Eye Institute opened an additional location in Sebastian during 2015, bringing specialty eye care a little closer to home for all residents of Indian River County and beyond.

Florida Eye Institute operates on the four core values of COMPASSION, QUALITY, INTEGRITY, and EFFICIENCY for patients, team members, and the community at large.

We define our core values as:

  • COMPASSION. Honest communication, policies, and engagement.
  • QUALITY. Unending commitment to training, technology, and best practices.
  • INTEGRITY. Walking-the-walk and being the leader.
  • EFFICIENCY. Respecting the patient experience, being timely and finding positive solutions to issues.

With over 75 employees, the practice has been recognized as a Best Place to Work by Workforce Solutions and by the Sebastian Area Chamber of Commerce. Over 40% of staff members have achieved milestones of more than 5 years with the company, and 10% have greater than 10 years of service.

We hope you enjoy your experience with our team as much as we enjoy helping you see life in a better way. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
