John R. Bullock, MD

Clay Eye Physicians & Surgeons recently welcomed John R. Bullock, M.D. to their practice. Dr. Bullock joined Clay Eye after completing his Oculofacial Plastic Surgery and Orbital Disease Fellowship at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

“I grew up in North Florida and received my Medical Degree from the University of Florida in Gainesville. Believe it or not, I had my very first eye exam as a child at Clay Eye 20+ years ago by Dr. Harris.  My education and training have really brought me full circle, and I am excited to be back home in Jacksonville.  I knew that Clay Eye was the perfect fit for me, as their approach to patient care is exactly the model I was looking for.  I welcome the opportunity to continue Clay Eye’s mission of providing high quality and compassionate eye care to the people of Northeast Florida”, said Dr. Bullock.  

Dr. C. M. Harris, Founder and Ophthalmologist at Clay Eye says, “It’s true, I was the doctor that gave Dr. Bullock his first eye exam. His dad and I were in the Navy together and we’ve kept in touch over the years. When Dr. Bullock decided on pursuing Ophthalmology as his specialty, I continued planting the seed for him to join our practice once he completed his training–and here we are. His training and Fellowship in Oculoplastics is a great addition to our team. He brings a full complement to the existing care of patients who need eyelid surgery, lesions and reconstruction; Tearing Disorders/Tear Duct Surgery and Blepharoplasty.”
