The “office of tomorrow” exists here in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Beaches Eye Center is truly a state-of-the-art ophthalmology practice replete with new and advanced diagnostic equipment and a commitment to providing exceptional eye care to the Beaches Community. Dr. Richard Ten Hulzen is widely regarded by his patients and peers as an astute clinician, patient listener, gifted educator, impeccable surgeon, and forward-thinking visionary. He possesses an exceptional ability to communicate complex ideas to patients. He is currently in his twentieth year of medicine and has spent the past five in Jacksonville Beach.
A board-certified ophthalmologist, he received his medical degree and ophthalmology training at the world-famous Mayo Clinic. He is also a fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist (Wills Eye Hospital) and the only one located at the beaches.
All diagnostic equipment at Beaches Eye Center is new and digital-ready. Dr. Ten Hulzen’s office is the first private clinic in Florida to use the Haag-Streit Octopus 900 Pro Perimeter—a visual field testing unit that significantly improves detection of pathology. Testing time takes just two minutes, vastly improving the patient experience as well.
Dr. Ten Hulzen brought eye surgery back to Baptist Medical Center–Beaches Hospital in 2010. He offers comprehensive eye care to patients of all ages, including but not limited to: cataracts, diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eyes and diabetic eye disease.
Beaches Eye Center accepts Medicare as well as most major medical insurance.
