Clay Eye Physicians & Surgeons Celebrates retirement of John D. Wilcox, M.D.

Posted

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA- 41 years ago, Clay Eye Physicians and Surgeons was founded by Dr. C.M. Harris and Dr. John D. Wilcox. They committed to provide the Northeast Florida community with quality, patient friendly eye care, and that pledge has never wavered. Throughout those years, additional dedicated ophthalmologists and staff have joined to expand the group and extend their “patient first” mission.

Dr. Harris states, “Dr. Wilcox is the consummate ambassador for ophthalmology: caring, compassionate and always willing to lead by example-both in and out of the office. Dr. Wilcox has always been known for his listening ear and ability to relate to his patients, invaluable qualities in medicine and in life. People have trusted Dr. Wilcox, and that trust has been earned.”

Prior to his Clay Eye career, Dr. Wilcox served as a Navy Captain in the Medical Corps as a Flight Surgeon/Ophthalmologist and retired in 2002 after 33 years of service.

Dr. Wilcox says, “Over the past 40+ years, Clay Eye has experienced tremendous growth and I am proud of the practice that we’ve built. While some things have changed, the focus on patient care never has. I’m incredibly blessed to have a wonderful, supportive family coupled with an amazing career. I am leaving my patients in competent hands with my incredible colleagues. As I reflect on my career, it’s heartwarming to know that I have cared for multi-generational families---from grandparents to grandbabies, and for that I feed humbled and privileged.”

Clay Eye Physicians and Surgeons offers comprehensive eye care in the following specialties: Glaucoma Surgery, Diabetic Eye Disease and Macular Degeneration, Laser Cataract Surgery, Cornea Surgery, Medical Retina, LASIK Surgery, Cosmetic Eye Procedures, Pediatric Ophthalmology, and Pediatric Eye Exams. In addition, they offer Routine Eye Exams, Contact Lenses, and Boutique Eyewear for the entire family.
