Local optometrist Dr. Deborah Flanagan is retiring after providing 42 years of excellent patient care in St. Pete. In honor of her many contributions to our community, a Retirement Reception hosted by Dr. Caleb Saint Jean will be held this Tuesday, June 27th, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Eyes On Central located at 4940 Central Avenue. Light refreshments will be served at the event and there will be a raffle of eyewear to benefit Westcare Gulfcoast-Florida, Inc. (Westcare).

Dr. Flanagan established her private optometry practice in St. Pete in 1989. Since then, she has been a beloved doctor to many local residents. She has also been recognized for her outstanding leadership and community involvement by Vision 21 Eyecare, New Faith Free Methodist Church, the National Optometric Student Association (NOSA), St. Luke’s Cataract & Laser Institute, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the Foster Parents Association of Pinellas County, Southside Church of Christ, and the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce. She continues to be an active member of the community through both her faith-based activities and position on the board of WestCare.

In anticipation of her retirement, Dr. Flanagan has selected Dr. Caleb Saint Jean to continue her practice at the same familiar location at 4940 Central Avenue. Dr. Saint Jean has been working with Dr. Flanagan since 2018. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Florida and his Doctor of Optometry from Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Saint Jean speaks both Spanish and Creole and is a specialist in dry eye treatments and Neurolens. According to Dr. Flanagan, “Dr. Saint Jean’s patient-centered clinical skills have been well demonstrated over the time we have worked together. I am confident that my patients and our community will continue to experience quality eye care as I transition out of the practice.”

“I’m honored to be entrusted with Dr. Flanagan’s outstanding practice and wonderful patients,” Dr. Saint Jean commented. “I have learned so much working with her and am looking forward to carrying on her legacy of personalized patient care.”
