Orlando Eye Center
Dr. Tim Lincoln attended graduate school in Chicago, IL at the Illinois College of Optometry, graduating in May 1986. While attending ICO, he did his externship at the Naval Station Great Lakes. This gave an experience that was complimentary to the clinical rotations at school. Shortly after graduating, Dr. Lincoln travelled to China and several countries in southeast Asia to evaluate eye care delivery. A paper comparing those to the U.S. was submitted to Review of Optometry for publication.
A lifelong dream was to practice in Florida, so in 1987 he moved to Bradenton, FL practicing with a group before moving to Orlando in 1989. After working in the commercial setting for 10 years, he decided to start his own private practice and Orlando Eye Center was established.
Orlando Eye Center opened in August 2000 and is located on the north end of Hunter’s Creek at Deerfield Blvd and John Young parkway (N/W corner, next to Buff-It’s), inside the John Young Medical and Professional facility. This location also has other tenants, including a pediatrician, chiropractor, and dentist.
The practice is very family oriented and has a friendly, patient-focused atmosphere. Dr. Lincoln strives to learn of each patients needs before offering any recommendations or treatment options, accommodating patients both with and without insurance. According to the insurance provider, Vision Service Plan (VSP), he has been the top VSP provider in Florida for many years as a single doctor office.
Dr. Lincoln prefers to give credit to his wife, Gail, whom he met in Chicago at Optometry school along with the well trained and caring staff. This includes Brenda, Michelle, Megan and Kathy. Even though “Dr. Gail” no longer sees patients on a regular basis, she is an integral part of the practice, taking care of the details which help a private practice run smoothly and efficiently.
Having a strong faith in God and His direction made the decision easy to follow and start a private practice. After looking back over the last 20 years, Dr. Lincoln is excited to take on advancements in the years to come, along with welcoming the addition of his son, and possibly youngest daughter into the practice!
Dr. Tim enjoys boating, traveling with his family, golfing, and the occasional classic car show.
New patients are welcome to Orlando Eye Center and are cared for with the same enthusiasm as established patients. Dr.’s Tim & Gail Lincoln and the staff pray that 2020 and this decade will provide positive opportunities and good health to the families of Central Florida!
