Doctors & Staff

Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Advanced Eye Care and Optical the leading provider of vision care products and services in Jacksonville.


Dr. Michael A. Powers

I have a passion for optometry and take special interest in doing everything possible to prevent the onset and/or progression of vision and eye health conditions. This is accomplished through early intervention and proper nutrition. I graduated in 1999 from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN. After graduating from optometry school I joined a group practice in Jackson, Mississippi. In 2002, my wife and I moved to Jacksonville, FL where I purchased a small optometry practice which is now Advanced Eye Care and Optical.

I have an amazing wife, Robyn, and five wonderful boys, Mylan, Jonah, Collin, Foster and Levi. The majority of my free time is spent enjoying my family. We love being outdoors and spend a lot of time strolling the beach and hiking trails at Hannah Park.

Previously, I worked for a a group of optometrists in Jackson, TN. I have two grown children and a grandson, Hunter, who is the apple of his “Nana’s” eye (a little optical lingo).
