Out of Town Patients

Depart on a trip to St. Petersburg/ Clearwater and return home seeing better than ever! If you live outside of St. Petersburg and Clearwater, we invite you to the beautiful west central Florida coast for a relaxing retreat and rejuvenating vision and cosmetic enhancements performed by Dr. Michael Manning. Our friendly staff will work with you to help plan your appointments, surgery, and recovery within your scheduled stay with us. We are happy to provide some helpful information about visiting Florida and the greater Tampa Bay area to get you started in planning your trip. We look forward to meeting you.

Patients from all over the country and abroad (including Canada, Italy, and Germany, to name a few) come to Gulfcoast Eye Care seeking the expertise of our experienced and respected vision care specialists. Situated among beautiful, white-sand beaches in a subtropical climate, the Tampa Bay area is the second largest metropolitan area in Florida. Temperatures average between 65 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit (18 and 35 degrees Celsius). The Tampa/ St. Pete/ Clearwater area has become a growing cultural center with attractions including gorgeous beaches, fishing and watersports, and numerous golf courses and tennis courts. Other area attractions include the Salvador Dali museum, Cuban-flavored historic Ybor City, Busch Gardens, the Florida Aquarium, the Florida Holocaust Museum, and Weeki Wachee Springs, among many others. The Tampa Bay area is also home to three major professional sports teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Football, Tampa Bay Rays Baseball, and the Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey as well as numerous Major League Baseball spring training teams. Our offices are near many restaurants, shopping areas, and comfortable places of accommodation that can help you to relax during your stay and your recovery from treatment.
