About Us

At Bowden Eye & Associates, you get the best of everything. Our multiple locations make it convenient for you to see an eye doctor – either an optometrist or an ophthalmologist. Our Jacksonville vision centers feature state-of-the-art technology and treatments that you simply can’t find at most area practices. We have not 1 but 2 fellowship-trained cornea and external disease specialists on staff – Dr. Bowden and Dr. Darbandi as well as Dr. Lima, a board-certified medical retina and uveitis specialist. All of our physicians specialize in primary eye care as well as ocular disease treatment. We even offer aesthetic services so you can look good and see well. Patients of our practice, as well as their family members, are also offered a complimentary, comprehensive hearing exam. No matter what you’re here for, our friendly, professional staff gives you the attention and care you deserve so that you’ll feel supported before, during, and after your visit.

If you would like to meet with one of our eye doctors, schedule an appointment online or call our office at 904-296-0098

This place has some of the nicest people I have ever met.

The Best Care for Our Patients

Bowden Eye & Associates offers a quality of services typically found at major medical centers, yet maintains the personal feeling of a smaller practice. You will always get to speak to a human on the phone when you call us, and we strive to get patients in for an appointment within a week (we always see emergencies immediately). With 6 locations, we can more conveniently serve women and men from throughout Jacksonville and surrounding areas.

A point of pride at Bowden Eye & Associates is that we feature 2 fellowship-trained cornea specialists – Dr. Bowden and Dr. Darbandi. This means that, above and beyond their board-certification as ophthalmologists, they have completed highly specialized training in diseases and disorders affecting the critical front structures of the eye. Among other things, they are uniquely qualified to perform corneal transplant surgery and refractive surgeries such as LASIK, PRK, ICL, CK, and refractive lens exchange surgery to correct distance, intermediate and near vision all at once.

THANK YOU to Dr. Bowden and all your staff for such competent and caring attention at all times.

- Richard, Jacksonville, Florida

Another point of pride is our emphasis on medical retina, Dr. Breno Lima is a fellowship trained medical retina specialist and 1 of only 3 ocular immunology and uveitis specialists in the state. Dr. Lima specializes in the latest medical treatment for diabetes, macular degeneration, or any other retinal or inflammatory disease of the eye.

Bowden Eye & Associates takes pride in being regarded as one of the premier dry eye disease clinics in the country. We have earned the distinction “Center of Excellence” for dry eye treatment and offer the most advanced and progressive treatments for dry eyes in the country. Doctors from all over the country as well as Australia, France, and Asia come to Bowden Eye to learn our treatment protocols.

With the investment we’ve made in technology, staff, and training, we can offer our patients the best treatment tailored to their specific needs. Ultimately, we want our patients to experience optimal eye health, vision, and comfort, and each member of our team is committed to that goal.
