Dr. Clinton Sheets came to the Tampa Bay area in 2008 after his glaucoma and cataract training at the #1 Eye Hospital in the United States, the world-renowned Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida. Since then, he has become “the go-to” Tampa Bay Area Glaucoma Specialist including Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Hillsborough counties and the cities of Hudson, New Port Richey, Port Richey, Palm Harbor, Trinity, Spring Hill, Brooksville, Greater Tampa Bay, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and the surrounding areas of West Central Florida.
Dr. Sheets was drawn to cataract surgery at the age of eighteen, galvanizing an idea that helping people with their vision was part of his life mission. Attending Indiana University School of Medicine created a unique opportunity to perform research in glaucoma, culminating in research lectures presented in France, Venezuela, and California – nearly unheard of for a medical student. This dedication to the ophthalmology field then led to an ophthalmology residency at the University of Florida, one of the highest surgical volume residencies in the country. Here, Dr. Sheets was twice named Resident of the Year. The sight was then set for his pinnacle of training: a fellowship at #1 ranked Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.
By using this advanced knowledge applied with his naturally caring ways, Dr. Sheets has developed a large following of patients and many long term relationships with referring doctors. These doctors refer their patients, family and friends to Dr. Sheets for cataract surgery and for their mild, moderate and severe glaucoma patients. By staying on the leading edge of cataract and glaucoma technology, Dr. Sheets is able to offer more advanced options for patients, allowing for more personalization of care. As research and surgical techniques have progressed, the relationship between cataract surgery and glaucoma care has become more intimate. Dr. Sheets is one of few doctors with this advanced level of training in both cataract and glaucoma care that can address both areas of care with leading edge ophthalmology technology, including advanced MIGS – minimally invasive glaucoma surgery.

In 2019, Dr. Sheets fulfilled his lifelong dream of opening his own private ophthalmology practice when he launched Advanced Cataract & Glaucoma Care, PLLC in Hudson Florida now serving the Tampa Bay Area and West Central Florida. His mission: To treat patients, teammates and eye disease the right way – with Advanced Technology and Personalized Care.
