About Us

We are a family owned and operated practice with a long history in the city of St. Petersburg.  The practice was started back in the 1940’s by Dr Philip Benjamin, a pillar in the community.  Dr Benjamin was a huge proponent for education and equal rights for all. His legacy is still felt throughout the office as many of his patients continue to visit us for their eye care needs.  In 1966 Dr Marantz began working for Dr Benjamin.  From that time until he took the practice over in 1982, Dr Marantz considered Dr Benjamin his mentor.  For over forty years Dr Marantz took pride in taking care of his patients including being the official Tampa Bay Rays eye doctor during that time. Dr Marantz took what Dr Benjamin started and made it his own.  Over the years he has had various associates working along side him and in 2012 an eager young optometrist, Dr Tara Camargo walked into his office to discuss potential employment.  After a short discussion she began working for him a couple weeks later.  Over time she began to realize that this practice was exactly what she was looking for and he began to realize that she would make the perfect successor. The transition was made simple by the fact that Dr Marantz and Dr Camargo share many of the same ethics and ideas when it comes to proper patient care.
