Join us for the Westchase Location Grand Opening – September 10th!

Bright Eyes Grand Opening 12×6


Any of the patients that have been to Bright Eyes Family in Westchase have seen the new office. We are so excited that the construction is (finally!) done, the dust has settled and we are ready to celebrate our expansion!

You will notice that we have more than doubled our square footage to serve you better! This includes more exam rooms and more vision therapy and myopia control space, and ability to make glasses right in the office.

We are so lucky to have such supportive family, friends and patients, as well as an amazing staff! We hope you can join us!

– Dr. Nate & Cristina Bonilla-Warford & the Bright Eyes team

Bright Eyes Kids Grand Opening Great Glasses Play Day Extravaganza!

Bright Eyes Kids Grand Opening

At Bright Eyes Family Vision Care, we love kids. About 40% of the patients who come to our Westchase are under 18 years old. That is a lot for an optometry office in Florida, but makes sense for us. Both myself and my associate Dr. Elizabeth Knighton have completed optometric residencies in children’s vision. We enjoy using our specialty training to help children, offering specialty services such as vision therapy and myopia control. We have lots of experience examining patients with special needs, such as children with Down Syndrome and autism.

Because we love working with children so much, we have opened an entire office dedicated to them: Bright Eyes Kids. This is the only optometry office in the Tampa Bay area designed just for kids. From child-sized furniture to a huge selection of kids glasses, we have built everything to be fun and friendly for our littlest patients. Check it out here.
We also love kids glasses! That is why we have decided to use the national Great Glasses Play Day as our GRAND OPENING for Bright Eyes Kids. This is the third GGPD we have been involved in and we can say it is a fantastic event. Check out all the cool stuff we have planned:
  • Pony Rides (before noon)
  • A Magic show for kids
  • Balloon Animals
  • Face Painting
  • FREE Goodie bags for all
  • Special cloths and cleaner for kids with glasses
  • Star Wars Treats
  • Lego (R) Activities By Bricks 4 Kids
  • Lego (R) minifigure trading (Bring a minifig or two to swap!)
We think you will agree that this will be a great event for kids! Please share this Great Glasses Play Day with the families of any children with glasses. You can RSVP on Facebook here:
And one added benefit: the party just happens to fall on May the Fourth. For those that don’t know – this is also know as Star Wars Day. May the Fourth Be With You, get it? :). So expect some Star Wars surprises!
We hope to see you there!
PS – If you are a local business that works with kids and would like to be involved, let us know. You can

We Welcome Maui Jim with a BOGO FREE Sale!

Welcome Maui Jim

We live in Florida and protection from the sun is essential. That is why I recommend quality UV-blocking sunglasses for every patient, young and old. Longtime patients at Bright Eyes will remember that we once carried Maui Jim sunglasses. Patients loved the superior clarity the lenses provided and the stylish, durable frames. In response to patient demand, we are pleased to announce that we now have them in stock again! We are very happy about this and we think you will be, too!

In fact, we are SO EXCITED about the new Maui Jim line that we are going to be offering two special sales:

  • The first 5 patients to buy Maui Jim sunglasses (starting now) will receive their choice of additional Maui Jims FOR FREE. Yes, a true Buy One Get One Free Sale. The second pair can be for a friend or family member – or keep them for yourself! If you use contacts, this is a great time to get one prescription pair and one without prescription. Any second pair – equal or lesser value. But only the first 5 people. If they go in the first hour, then that is it for the BOGO, so come in quick! (Unfortunately, the deal will not apply to some vision plans.)
  • For EVERY patient that buys a pair of Maui Jims between now, up to, and during our Grand Opening event on Wednesday, March 7th, save 30%! So even if you aren’t one of the first 5, you can still get a deal. (And this does include vision insurance plans.)

So come in! Check out the new office! And save on Maui Jims while you can!
