Voted Best Ophthalmology Practice in the 2021 Bradenton Herald People’s Choice Awards

Top-Notch Vision Center in a Historic Setting

We have provided exceptional eye care to patients in Bradenton and throughout Manatee County for over 30 years. In 2000, Dr. Pope set out to restore a local landmark – the former train depot located in downtown Bradenton. His vision became a reality with the completion of The Eye Depot, which was named a Florida Heritage Site in 2004 and has even been used as a site to film Hollywood movies. The Eye Depot features state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, providing every tool our ophthalmologists need for management of vision problems and eye diseases.
