Florida Eye Specialists and Cataract Institute was founded by Gregory L. Henderson in 1981. Our doctors are some of the most highly-trained and experienced in their field, utilizing sophisticated state-of-the-art technologies to examine, diagnose, and treat all types of eye conditions and diseases. Our doctors serve four separate locations in the Tampa Bay region which are located in the cities of Brandon, Sun City Center, Ruskin, and our newest in Riverview.

Bringing Florida Eye Specialists and Cataract Institute to Riverview was an easy decision, as Florida Eye wanted to serve its growing community of patients and new members of the thriving community. Riverview is a budding city in the Tampa Bay region with a great school system, a plethora of housing developments and recreational facilities.
