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. Frank W. Bowden, III, and Dr. Sarah Darbandi and Dr. Kevin Cronin. 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.
“This place has some of the nicest people I have ever met.”

The Best Care for Our Patients
Bowden Eye & Associates offers a multitude of quality 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 the surrounding areas.
A point of pride at Bowden Eye & Associates is that we feature 2 fellowship-trained cornea specialists – Dr. Frank W. Bowden, III, and Dr. Sarah 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
