About Florida Eye Associates


Florida Eye Associates was founded in 1967 with a mission to provide comprehensive, quality services to the community. As Brevard County’s population grew, Florida Eye Associates became the area’s first ophthalmology group practice, adding physicians and sub-specialists as the community’s needs changed. Since then, Florida Eye Associates has remained committed to providing our patients with quality care at a convenient time and location for a reasonable price. Over the years, Florida Eye Associates has been the area’s recognized leader in ophthalmology with a number of firsts:

  • First ophthalmology group practice in Brevard County
  • Dr. Ralph Paylor was the first fellowship-trained ophthalmic sub-specialist to arrive in the county
  • Dr. L. Neal Freeman was the first fellowship-trained eye plastic surgeon in the area.
  • First ophthalmology ambulatory surgery center in the area.

Florida Eye physicians operate at our own ambulatory surgery center located just a few blocks east of our main office in downtown Melbourne. ASC of Brevard is a single specialty surgery center which means the center, equipment and staff are dedicated to performing procedures on the eyes including cataract surgery, retina and glaucoma procedures, LASIK, and cosmetic treatments for the eye.

Our Philosophy

“Back in 1967, I opened my practice with the intention of providing much-needed quality service to the community at times and locations that were convenient. Over the years, our group has grown, but our philosophy hasn’t changed. Our goal is always to provide excellent care in a timely and convenient manner and at a reasonable cost. We set high standards for how we run our offices and how we treat our patients. We believe our commitment to customer service is what sets us apart from our competitors. We want to know about your experience here. I urge you to complete a survey, send an email or call our office. Your feedback is important to us. Thank you for the opportunity to care for you and your family.”  Founder of Florida Eye Associates
