When Dr. Elizabeth Knighton "Dr. Beth" joined Bright Eyes in 2014, we were thrilled to have her. After all, she had specialty training in children's vision and is extremely nice. Initially she saw patients two days a week and only at the Bright Eyes Family location in Westchase because the Bright Eyes Kids location in New Tampa was brand new and itself was only open 2 days a week.
Since then Dr. Beth has grown significantly with us. She has worked full-time with us for quite some time, splits her time between Bright Eyes Family and Bright Eyes Kids, and provides primary eye care, vision therapy, and sports vision. Additionally, she has weathered not only the challenges of the large expansion of Bright Eyes Family office, but also the global COVID-19 pandemic. She has also been through the great times, such as when Bright Eyes recently received the CooperVision Best Practices Award (above).
During the seven years that Dr. Beth has worked at Bright Eyes, she has truly embodied our mission to "to empower people by providing the best in friendly, professional, and innovative eye care." She gives her all for patients, as patients tell us in Google reviews, like the one that says,
"My daughter has special needs and Dr. Beth was so amazing with her! Lots of patience and very kind. Highly recommend!"
So it is for all these reasons that I am incredibly excited to announce that Dr. Beth is no longer an associate doctor, but she is now joining me and Cristina as partner at Bright Eyes! This partnership will allow Dr. Beth more opportunities to improve patient care at Bright Eyes.
We look forward to working with her for a very long time!!
