dr.lenka champion

I started my ophthalmology practice to care for patients in a respectful and sincere way. I love helping my patients seebetter, empowering them to take control of their health, and caring for them like family. I welcome patients’ input and participation in their treatment.
I am a Board-Certified Ophthalmologist. I am experienced in Laser Cataract Surgery, LASIK/PRK, Glaucoma and General Eye Exams. I hold many industry certifications pertaining to those. I am on the active medical staff at the Department of Ophthalmology, St. Vincent’s Southside Hospital. I gained my ophthalmology experience working with the U.S. Navy at NAS Jacksonville, the University of Florida, and Shands Hospital in Gainesville. I have practiced ophthalmology in the Jacksonville area for the last 16 years, where I live with myhusband, son and two dogs.
My education started by earning an International Baccalaureate diploma and graduatingMagna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of North Florida. I was awarded my Doctor of Medicine with Honors from the University of Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville. While in medical school, I was nominated for membership to Alpha Omega Alpha, a national honor society. I also earned the HM Hill Scholarship, a merit-based award. I was accepted for internship at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Medicine in 2001. My post graduate studies continued at the University of Florida in Gainesville, where I spend most of my time learning the techniques of advanced cataract, refractive surgery, and treatment of glaucoma.
I am an active member of several organizations including the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, Florida Medical Society, Florida Society of Ophthalmology, and Duval County Medical Society. I continue to be actively involved in ophthalmology research on cataracts, and effects of systemic medications on cataract formation. I have also been an investigator in studies on diabetic and drug induced retinopathy. I am excited that you are considering my practice. My team is ready to care for you in a relaxed and personalized way. Welcome to Champion Eye.

what our clients say

Health Grades

I arrived at the office, signed in and took a seat. They called my name a few minutes later. A skilled technician performed the usual tests, i.e., a vision test and eye pressures. I was taken to Dr. Champion's examination room. Soon, another technician checked my eye pressures. After a short wait, Dr. Champion arrived. She examined my eyes with a bright light and magnification. She also checked my eye pressures, which were good. Essentially, no appreciable change in pressures or changes inside my eyes. As usual, I felt the knowledge, care and accuracy of the examinations were excellent. It was a good visit.
