Better vision has a direct impact on your quality of life. Only you can ensure that your eyes are in good health by taking time for regular vision check-ups.

Our state of the art equipment and comprehensive eye exams are among the best you will find.  Early detection and treatment of eye disease are critical for long term vision health.

New BlephEx & Blepharitis Treatment

Blepharitis is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the eyelids caused by an overgrowth of normal bacteria living along the lid and the base of the eyelashes. Now, thanks to BlephEx, your eye doctor can precisely and safely, clean and exfoliate your eyelids and lashes, which will almost immediately improve your symptoms. Learn more.

"I was recommended to Dr. Starling about 1 year ago. My experience with the office and staff has been wonderful. During my visits I was pleased to find a clean and comfortable atmosphere, with an inviting staff. My wait times were very short, and I was seen when my appointment was scheduled. They use technology to provide patients the best practices of vision care and efficiency. I order my contacts through the office, and they always arrive as promised. As a fellow professional in the community (I am a veterinarian), I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Starling and her office to friends, family, and colleagues. ~Dr. Seth Colman"

"I have nothing but praise for Starling Eye Group. I have never had a long wait whether for routine appointments or last minute appointment due to a problem with an eye. The entire office staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Starling has always taken time to address any questions or concerns I have in addition to the rest of the exam. I have purchased glasses from the office as well. They have helped me with broken glasses, refills on cleaners, an eye injury, and allergy issues along with yearly exams. I have been pleased with each and every experience. I cannot recommend them highly enough."

"As soon as you walk in the door of Starling Eye Group, you are welcomed by name by the friendly staff. It's almost like entering a spa - it is calm, smells good, and they clearly do not overbook! There is little wait and you can help yourself to water and magazines. I always get a very thorough exam and feel that my concerns are addressed. Dr. Starling and the staff are willing to work with you to get the best options available and within your budget. I recommend the practice to my friends and colleagues and will be bringing my children here when they need eye care."

"My family and I have been patients of Dr. Starling since she opened her practice in Gainesville. We have been nothing less than thrilled with the service, concern and level of care we have received from Dr. Starling and her excellent staff. We are always greeted with a smile and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful. We will continue to look to Dr. Starling and her staff for our eye care needs for years to come. Thank you for everything. Ian Jarnagin and Family"
