A Lifetime of Good Vision


Few things are as important to overall health as clear, correct vision. Caring for our eyes not only ensures a productive, independent lifestyle but also years and years of beautiful memories. At Central Florida Eye Institute, board-certified ophthalmologist Thomas L. Croley, M.D., and his dedicated staff understand the gift of sight and can help you regain, improve, and protect your eyes for a lifetime of good vision.


Dr. Croley founded Central Florida Eye Institute in 1989 with one goal in mind—to provide patients with state-of-the-art technology and surgical eye care while putting their needs first. And in its 20 years of serving the community, Central Florida Eye Institute has grown to become one of the area’s finest and most trusted eye practices.


A graduate of Oklahoma State University, Dr. Croley received his medical degree from the University of Oklahoma and completed his residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. He is a member of numerous professional organizations, including the American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Medical Association, and Marion County Medical Society, giving every patient the added peace of mind that their health is in capable, experienced hands.


“TLC” is more than just Dr. Thomas L. Croley’s initials. In fact, the “tender, loving care” philosophy permeates his entire practice. Whether the appointment is for a complete eye examination or a custom vision surgical procedure, Dr. Croley and his staff treat every patient like a family member, with the time and care they deserve. Dr. Croley sees every patient himself during examinations and performs all surgical procedures himself as well. You will never be rushed into a decision as every medical option is fully explained and explored. Furthermore, Central Florida Eye Institute accepts most insurance plans and offers financing as well.



Central Florida Eye Institute is the area’s first accredited ambulatory center. This allows a full variety of procedures and services to be performed in one convenient location and eliminates patient travel to multiple offices. For even more peace of mind, Dr. Croley, Director of Central Florida Eye Institute, offers 24-hour emergency care for patients.


Not only does Dr. Croley and his staff commit themselves to each and every patient’s health, they also spend their time educating and helping members of the local community. From vision and glaucoma screenings at schools and area businesses to classes on a range of eye-care topics, they take care of their neighbors. That’s the Central Florida Eye Institute’s community commitment.


Talk to Dr. Croley’s kind and understanding staff today about how his years of experience and expertise can help you see the world more clearly. With Dr. Croley on your side, you’ll once again be able to enjoy every sunset, every grandchild’s sports game, every memory yet to come.
