Dr. Eubanks is the latest to join the Hunter Vision surgical team. An Ivy League education and incredible surgical skills often create a divide between doctor and patient in the world of medicine. However, Dr. Eubank’s ability to connect with patients and deliver incredible results is the stuff of legend. He specializes in LASIK, ICL and Cataract surgery. He can be found at Hunter Vision performing the most advanced form of LASIK and PRK as well as ICL and precision cataract surgery with the latest lens technology. As a LASIK patient himself, he knows firsthand how incredible good vision can be and is excited about sharing this amazing treatment with others.
Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Dr. Eubanks was a technophile from a young age — the kind of high schooler that teaches himself computer programming in his spare time — and assumed he’d follow that path professionally. It wasn’t until college, at Cornell University, that he first grew interested in medicine. It was because the thought of using technology to help people personally and directly turned his hobby into a passion. That led him to medical school at the University of Florida and when he began studying ophthalmology, a field where vision can be corrected precisely using computers and lasers, he knew he’d found his career. After a residency at the renowned Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans and thousands of eye surgeries, Dr. Eubanks joined Hunter Vision. He is the kind of man whose office is always filled with staff members because he is fun and kind, and that may be one of the most impressive things about him, because that’s rare in a refractive surgeon who performs mental calculations like a computer and operates with the precision of a robot. He carries the easy confidence of a man who’s found his calling.
Dr. Eubanks’ main interests include astigmatism correction, laser and lens based treatment of nearsightedness and farsightedness and cataract surgery and he spends countless hours researching ways to improve the correction of these conditions. When he’s not in clinic or the operating room, Dr. Eubanks enjoys the active kind of relaxation. He either actually enjoys exercising or is disciplined enough to make it seem like he does, since his first hour or two after work each day is usually spent running or biking. When he’s not pounding the pavement, he still enjoys tinkering with computers and gadgets like he has since childhood. For the relaxing kind of relaxation, he’s really into college football. Watching football takes him back to his days in med school at University of Florida, when game day meant friends yelling and cheering, while the sun shone down on The Swamp and a textbook sat upon his lap.
