Eye Centers of Florida taps Dr. Carmen Wilson to practice in its Immokalee location.

FORT MYERS — Eye Centers of Florida added its 17th doctor: the Fort Myers-based eye care provider hired Dr. Carmen Wilson to practice in its Immokalee office. To meet the patient needs of the area, Wilson, like many of the staff at that location, speaks both Spanish and English.

Wilson has participated in several medical mission trips in underserved communities in Brazil, Haiti, Turks and Caicos and Jamaica. She most recently worked in Montego Bay, Jamaica, the release states. 

“Dr. Wilson brings outstanding experience, compassion and passion for eye care,” says Eye Centers of Florida founder Dr. David Brown in a statement. “Increasing our medical team to 17 providers allows us to better serve the comprehensive eye health needs of the rapidly growing Southwest Florida population.”

Born in Malaga, Spain, Wilson was raised in The Bronx, N.Y. Following her residencies, she joined the faculty at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, where she simultaneously earned her master’s of science in clinical research. 

Founded by David Brown in 1971, Eye Centers of Florida operates 11 locations in Southwest Florida and specializes in cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation, refractive surgery, implantable contact lenses, glaucoma drainage device procedures and more. The flagship Fort Myers location also houses a surgery center and aesthetics program.
