They'll try to force a refraction charge on you. It's 45 dollars. They say they can't charge both the eye insurance and health insurance, so if you want to avoid the refraction fee they'll tell you to do two separate visits - which, with your copay you'll likely pay that amount anyways. It isn't true. You should not pay a refraction with your vision insurance, and if these scam artists try to charge you that, you're better off elsewhere (obviously call your insurance to double check) but it's absolutely fraud what they're doing here charging both the insurance and you.

I have had some serious bad eye lid problems for 9 months..I had another ophthalmic doctor with my insurance last year., I was totally disrespected and not treated as should have been. I am a new patient to Gulf Coast.Eye. and so thankful! I check on reviews when my experience is horrible or wonderful. I chose GEC.. I called today about continuing styes affecting my eyesight and my days and my day to day life! I made a call and I was called back within an hour, and was so thankful for the time and care that was offered me.. I have a cataract sx coming up, and have faith I will be cared for with care and concern! Thanks again to those who went above and beyond my persistent styes.

I recently had Refractive Lens Replacement.In the initial consult, Dr Manning was very patient and responsinve to the numerous questions I had. Prior to the surgery, I had minor cataracts and difficulty seeing up close.On the day of the surgery, the staff did a really good job in preparing me for the lens replacement and helped to calm my nerves. The actual procedure was very quick and Dr. Manning did a great job.The result of the surgery is that my eye sight is now 20/20 and I'm able to see without reading glasses.I would highly recommend Dr Manning and his staff. They were really great!!

Dr.Manning did a procedure on my eye yesterday. My fear was through the roof. I didn’t understand it was procedure day and out of fear was yappin my face off talking about other eye stuff and he patiently waited for me to stop waved his nurse over knowing I was filled with fear. She rubbed my back and he talked me through it. What a nice guy and it’s official I’m a big freaking baby. The procedure took two seconds and didn’t hurt. What a great staff and doctor. Thank you Doc and everyone at that office who smiles and says hello.

I had regular Lasik done, and it was totally worth every penny and more if it had cost more. I was in hard lense contacts for 20+ years (nearsightedness -700ish and astigmatisms in both eyes) . The doctor and employees were awesome! 100% would do it again if needed. It's like a miracle of healing from heaven, including no longer having to deal with contact frustration, Praise the Lord!

I had a very positive experience with the Gulfcoast Eye Care team. I had ICL to correct high grade nearsightedness. Everything went very smoothly and the staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Miranda the surgery counselor was excellent/friendly with scheduling, Joy did a great job making me feel comfortable on op-day, and Dr. Manning’s skill, professionalism, and thoughts were greatly valued throughout the process. I don’t normally do Google reviews but the Gulfcoast team deserves all positive feedback and recommendation I can give. The restoration of my sight has been a tremendous gift-thank you!!

Be very careful using Gulfcoast Eye Care. As a money grab they are filling eye care visits under general health care insurance claims instead of under vision insurance. My guess is they can claim more money from insurance with this method.Reply to the below response:Thank you for keeping my privacy in your response, but you are incorrect in your statement below. My wife scheduled a routine eye exam as it is stated on the bill. Just because she has healthy eyes and did not need a refraction, I was told by your staff this would be billed as a medical visit, instead of a routine annual eye exam that she was there for. I have already spoken with your very rude office manager about the subject. This is a very shady business practice that people should be aware.

I 100% recommend Gulfcoast Eye Care - Palm Harbor. Staff is kind. They give me plenty of notice on appointments. While other places tried to push lasik or procedures that could have made matters worse for me. Plenty of testing was done here to be absolutely sure I was not a candidate of lasik but instead needed RLE surgery, which I have had zero issues thanks to Dr. Manning and staff, and wasn’t a bad experience in the slightest.

Dr. Liffland is the best. I don’t say that lightly. I trust her completely, and am lucky to be her patient. She is straightforward, but kind. Very knowledgeable, but capable of explaining things in a way that can be easily understood. Beyond the doctor, I have been treated great by all other staff. Everyone is kind, approachable, and incredibly accommodating. I recommend this office to everyone I know.

Have been a happy patient of Dr Liflin for over 8 years now. My last visit was early February 2023 at which time a New contact brand was selected, even though i have used the same band for 20 years. As one could imagine there didn't work so I drove back to Eye Care Facility to obtain same set of contacts that I have been wearing since the 90's. Called 1 week later to state that new contacts are a match. I was told final prescription cannot be signed off on with out Dr. Liftlin who is on vacation for the next couples weeks. Further I have requested my contact prescription emailed to me once Dr. LIFTIN signs it and was told the email is not an option. Prescription much be picked up or can by mailed. This will be my 3rd trip to this facility. This is highly unusual activity for this doctor, have only had glowing things to say about her and her group. Unfortunately as of late I would not recommend any of my friends or family. Very disappointing.

Very good experience scheduling a quick initial appointment following an ER visit, wonderful staff in the Pinellas Park office - transferred my care to the Tampa Road office which I have now made my main vision provider; the staff there is equally friendly and attentive (unlike my previous vision provider in the East Lake area where the staff was quite stiff and unwelcoming, seemed annoyed that someone walked in the door, no weekend answering service in case of emergency - which was what happened to me). No long waits in the waiting room or being left in a room for an extended period of time as there seems to be plenty of staff to attend to each patient. Quite happy I ended up here!

I like the personal attention Dr. BRENDA Liffland gives me when monitoring aftercare of cataract surgery and new lenses. It is so nice to have 20/20 vision like when I was a kid with no glasses to wear. Gulfcoast Eye Care treats their clients very well. On procedures and follow ups. DR. Michael Manning makes the procedures very easy. I OPTED FOR Vivity lenses and I am 100% happy that I did.Combined with their Alphaeon health credit card at 0% Apr if paying monthly allows you to see great again without problems.

I first went in to see Dr. Luther at Gulf Coast in Pinellas with irritation caused by contacts (which was less than 30mins after I called concerned) and in that first visit, I learned more about proper eye care & health than I have in my 20 years of seeing eye doctors annually (and sometimes more frequently than that). Dr Luther took the time to explain the eye, broke things down with hands on demonstrations to make sure I understood. She gave several recommendations while being financially conscious. She & gulf coast are 100% the first people to take me and my eye care seriously. I’ve always been interested in vision correction, but in the past doctors brushed it off and briefly mentioned dry eyes, infections, frequent switching of contact brands w/o explanation, etc, so I didn’t know if it was really an option for me. The Pinellas location, st Pete, and north Pinellas clinic were all SO FRIENDLY and took their time with me (even with my disproportionate anxiety during the ICL procedure they were so sweet and talked me through it). I’m now 6 months past the procedure & Dr. Luther still takes her time to validate and listen to all of my minor questions/concerns. For the first time in my life, I can see without hockey puck sized lens and/or contacts. I went from -5.50 to better than 20/20 vision. It’s truly been a life changing experience and I have so much gratitude for this practice and Dr Luther! I will always recommend her to everyone I know!

Pain and other issues associated w the injured eye. I was able to see Dr Luther on the 2/18, 2/20, and again on 2/22 just before our departure. The Pinellas Park office got me in quickly and we made progress quickly as well. They saved my vacation from being sacked by a huge inconvenience. Thank you very much and a tip of the hat to Dr. Luther. Very impressed.

I’ve been a patient at this office for a little over 3 years now. When I received my eye exam everything was fine, but the real trouble was when I had to order my contacts. Initially, a gentleman named Jim helped me. Since I am on a busy schedule as a college student, I did not order my contacts right away so I waited. When I came back to this office to order my contacts, they told me I had to get another consultation because it had passed the 3 month mark since I had my exam. The policy for EVERY single optical office with a valid prescription is a YEAR. With this news, I called my insurance and turns out this policy was strange and they were able to report it so it does not affect other customers. One of the office’s associates who work in the eyeglass and contact department was very rude and unhelpful when it came to ordering my contacts. Her name is Corinne, and not only did she never pick up the phone, but lied about leaving voicemails about my order being ready, when she clearly did not call me at all. She lied and stated she called me on 11/21/2023, but I called her on 11/28/2023 asking if my contacts have arrived yet, she answered with an attitude and said “if they have, wouldn’t I have called you already?” Anyways, I wouldn’t come back to this office because of “new policies” and I’d request for help from a gentleman named Jim when ordering contacts and glasses.

Fantastic all around! Tremendous experience in every respect. Planning RLE to stop need for progressive glasses for rest of my life. Scheduling was easy and price was better than others.Office visit with numerous tests was very efficient and Informative. Dr Luther communicated clearly and instilled confidence that everything checked out good and this is the place to correct my vision permanently. Tests showed no issue with retina even though I had retinal detachment years ago.Miranda (freaking amazing personality) helped schedule surgery and plan the big day.Will update when my eyes are fixed in time for Christmas!

I was seen without an appointment because I felt that foreign material had gotten into my left eye and although I had flushed it, some was still there. Dr. Luther examined both eyes thoroughly. She was able to do this without making me at all uncomfortabl and she was very nice. I had gotten the material out, but the eye had abrasions. Dr. Luther prescribed eye drops to help heal my eye and prevent infection.I felt absolutely comfortable and confident in her care. I have also been a patient of Dr. Manning and Dr. Liffland at Gulf Coast Eye and found them to be equally skilled and pleasant.

my most recent visit was due to what felt like a foreign object (like an eyelash) that was severely irritating my eye. On the first visit Dr Luther couldn’t see anything other than an irritating buildup on the inside of my eyelid. She prescribed eye drops that I used and had me return after 2 days. Since I still had the irritation, she did another thorough investigation. She did remove a small foreign object and then preformed a thorough rinsing of my eye. After that treatment, my eye felt so much better. I’m so thankful that she took the time to make sure that my problem was resolved quickly.

I have been trying to get the right perscription for my eyes for the last 5 years! I have been a regular patient at Bascom Palmer, been seen at a local practice, and a large chain. None of then were able to get my rx correct and only blamed dry eye. I (reluctantly) went to Dr Luther at Gulfcoast Eyecare. I was skeptical. Why bother after so many disaapointments? Well, omg. I can see! Victor found my perfect Rx the first try and Dr Luther gave me so many different dry eye options. The dr's, techs, admin, and eyewear associates were all incredibly kind. I can finally see near perfectly since 2017. This is my place!

The Doctors are excellent. I highly recommend them.It is difficult to get the office staff to communicate with you. Typically requires multiple calls just to get basic info.Billing department also created a fiasco for me over $10.00, after previously refunding me too much money. This should have been written off as their mistake, rather than being put on me to handle.

About a year ago, I had SMILE surgery at a clinic in Orlando. It was a not so great experience. I was left with some horrible dry eye and astigmatism in my left eye. Since I moved to St Pete, I have been coming to Gulf coast Eye Care for help with my dry eye symptoms. Dr. Luther has been SO amazing and helpful. She is so sympathetic and really takes the time to help me find solutions to make sure my symptoms are taken care of. She listens really intently to all of my concerns and is just really caring and great. I would definitely recommend Gulf coast Eye Care to everyone. The quality of care here is fantastic!

This is my 2nd visit. Both times I've had nothing, but the utmost quality customer service. The ladies at the front desk are always pleasant and courtesy. But my favorite is Katya. I don't believe I spelled her name correctly, but she handles the contact lens and has always been a pleasant to work with. She's super patient and kind. I've made St. Pete my home and they were apart of that.Dr. Nguyen should perhaps work on his bedside manner. He wasn't rude, but he was disconnected and I felt rushed and as if he was having a bad day. I felt this way the first time a visited as well.

The tech who worked with me - Apple - was absolutely amazing today. I have severe medical anxiety and this was my first eye exam and she was a delight, she explained everything as it went, took a water break with me when I felt a spike of anxiety, and we chatted as it went. Dr. Nguyen was also wonderful, understanding my medical unease and explaining what he was doing too. He was polite, got straight to the point, and helped out in understanding what would be right for my eyes. Wonderful experience, can't wait for next year. Thanks Gulfcoast Eye Care!

First- Dr. Nguyen Is an optometrist, not an ophthalmologist. Fine, it was a referral from my primary care md. But when seeing a patient with an eye condition (autoimmune uveitis) that can cause blindness, he should know better than to dismiss my issues as allergies. He was rushed, and an assistant even came into the room and stood there awkwardly/rudely just looking at Dr. Nguyen in order to move the appointment along. He spent the time lecturing me about the risks of prednisone drops (which I’m very familiar with, I’ve had this condition for 25 years, and I would be blind by now if I listened to inexperienced clinicians like Dr. Nguyen & didn’t self-treat with prednisone) I have since found an experienced ophthalmologist in network, but I wouldn’t go back to Dr. Nguyen if even if I just needed glasses. This place is just shuffling people through to maximize profit, and Dr. Nguyen is too young & arrogant to know what is outside the scope of his expertise, or understand the damage he can cause.
Gayelle AngelottiGayelle Angelotti
15:49 13 Dec 23
Was not at all pleased with the level of care received. The tech did all the work and only saw the Dr. for maybe like 2 minutes. I took my prescription to get my eyeglasses at a local mall and I couldn’t even see out of them once I got them. So something went wrong somewhere? What happened to when the Doctor actually did the exam? I trust in these people to help fix me and now I have to rethink that! I understand that these professionals are busy and see a lot of patients throughout the day, but aren’t we all.

Gulfcoast Eye Care has been performing my regular checkups for several years. I believe that they provide high quality care with uptodate technology, have found that they keep to the scheduled time of appointments, and provide welcome tree-shaded (natural) parking. One criticism: I feel that the ophthalmologist does not communicate well; he gives short, pronouncements, does not provide explanation of what he is doing/finding while examining, and responds to my questions with perfunctory answers. I feel that he is completely competent and that he gives his full attention, and do not plan to change ophthalmologist, but would prefer better communication.

Absolutely ridiculous place. Charging patients on a fixed income $45 to give them the prescription that the insurance paid for. Sucking older people dry to have access to their results.

The procedure was all I hoped for. The staff was Superb. The results were all I had been promised.The one reason I gave 4 Stars rather than 5 Stars is because I was told that the cost would be $6,000 for both eyes.The Counselor with whom I spoke never mentioned there would be an additional $2,000 for the facility fee where the procedure would be done.Would I have still gone with Gulfcoast Eyecare? Absolutely! Yes!I would simply like to have been told the total cost from the beginning.If I could give 4.5 or 4.75 Stars, I would.

This experience is regarding the Lasik consult only and not the actual procedure. I came here to get another opinion on whether or not I should proceed with Lasik after a major Lasik center, one that advertises constantly, told me that despite the fact that Lasik would be safe and effective for me, I'd likely rue the day I did it due to dry eye (they diagnosed me with a evaporative dry eye after doing some tests) given that my dry eye issues subside when I wear contact lenses (remember this detail). They recommended trying to stay out of glasses for a month and seeing how often I use eye drops. Thanks to this advice, I attempted it and it became apparent the answer was every few hours I'd need drops.The staff at this location is professional and friendly. The testing lasts about 2-3 hours. I felt comfortable with the tests and all the staff. I talked to the optometrist, Dr. Nguyen, about my dry eye concerns and he made the passing comment that "adding plastic to your eyes worsens dry eye." This, of course, is the opposite of my experience. I had a flash back to the other center that told me not to consider Lasik if my dry eye was better with contacts (which it is). I let the testing continue and, as I'd been told previously, safe and effective. Dr. Nguyen did offer caution that my ability to see up close may potentially worsen post-Lasik (granted, it does in everyone eventually) and that there's a scar in my eye that may impact the type of procedure that can be done.After consulting with a few ophthalmologist friends, I decided against proceeding. As much as I want Lasik, the thought of putting drops in every hour or two is not an exchange I'd want to make. Per their paperwork, this place does charge you a fee for the testing if you decide not to move forward with the procedure. I'll be calling them soon to pay for the testing.My takeaway from this experience is, if you're considering Lasik, go to at least two centers and listen very, very carefully. My dry eye being better with contacts, being told I'd need to live with constant drops and my near vision worsening necessitating glasses anyway are all reasons I decided not to move forward with the procedure. It took two consults for me to get the complete picture of why Lasik was a bad idea for me. That said, I have friends that didn't have dry eye conditions that did it and absolute love their results.

So impressed! So appreciative that the St. Pete office could fit me in when I was experiencing a severe irritation-then, when I went for my follow up appt., I had the pleasure of working with Angelo! He took such great care of me, addressed all of my concerns, and went several "extra miles"---even determining that my insurance would cover vision/health here, so was able to get MORE done! There is
