Quigley Eye Specialists, which is a Southwest Florida leader in the diagnosis and treatment of vision disorders, has acquired an established optometry practice in downtown Fort Myers.
The optometry office of Dr. Bruce Senior joins nine other practices under Quigley Eye Specialists ownership in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties.
“Dr. Senior is an excellent doctor with a stellar reputation in Fort Myers for more than 45 years. Quigley Eye Specialists is growing rapidly to keep up with patient demand so it is important that we continue to add exceptional physicians to our medical team,” said Dr. Thomas Quigley, founder of Quigley Eye Specialists.
By adding another location in Lee County, Dr. Quigley said Quigley Eye Specialists is able to give patients better access to care so that patients can be seen the same day, if needed. “As rapidly as this area is growing, we must have enough excellent doctors to meet the demand,” he said.
Other Quigley Eye Specialists offices in Lee County are located at 15640 New Hampshire Court in Fort Myers, 6091 South Pointe Blvd. in Fort Myers, 112 Del Prado North in Cape Coral, and 5220 Lee Blvd. in Lehigh Acres. The facial plastic surgery office of Dr. Stephen Prendiville at 9407 Cypress Lake Drive also is part of Quigley Eye Specialists.
Dr. Senior will continue to provide care from the office at 2277 First St. in downtown Fort Myers. The phone number of 239-337-2020 also remains the same. No operational changes are planned as a result of the acquisition.
Dr. Senior has more than 49 years of experience in optometry. He grew up in Sarasota and attended the University of Florida in Gainesville with the intent of becoming an aerospace engineer. He was fascinated by the way physics and physiology provided answers to the way the human body functions. An optometrist friend suggested that he apply for optometry school as the practice of optometry is a marriage of physics and physiology. He received his Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Houston where he was offered a research grant for doing tear osmolarity studies which helped pay for tuition.
Dr. Senior has enjoyed more than 50 years of marriage to Marilee, who is a licensed optician and works in Dr. Senior’s office. The couple has two grown children and four grandchildren.
