Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Leach "As an ophthalmologist, I believe in complete and professional individualized eye care for every patient. My goal is to obtain the best medical and surgical visual outcomes possible. I use state-of-the-art equipment and have performed over 10,000 eye procedures since 1987. My focus is cataract surgery with specialty lenses and LASIK. I am proud to be a partner of the Tampa Eye Clinic, founded in 1962, a multi-specialty ophthalmology group that can serve all of your eye care needs."
