I've been to two eye-care providers. OCALA EYE is the very BEST. I've, also, heard bad things about Mid-Florida from one of their former employees, as well as Lake Eye. Be careful. You only have one set of eyes and they can be quickly ruined by going to the wrong doctor. Do your homework and check their experience, credentials, and customer comments on the Internet.

St. Luke's Cataract & Laser Institute, they do it all. Had my cataracts removed there and they picked me up at the house and drove me home. Very nice staff.

We all three see Dr. Jodi Armstrong at Ocala Eye.

She is smart. (a medical doctor) and warm too.

She removed my cataracts and she does dozens of those surgeries every Monday. I have yet to meet anyone who wasn't satisfied.

They have LOTS and lots and lots and lots of patients, and you usually have to wait a half an hour to 45 minutes and they keep the place like a refrigerator. So take a jacket or sweater.
I have to be myself, everyone else is taken.

I do not like ocala eye- received two different opinions about my condition at ocala eye from two doctors. The 2nd opinion happen to agree with my doctor i had at uofm hospital. I now go to mid florida eye , and like the staff and doctor vey much. He explains everything.

I am considering either Mid-Florida eye, Lake eye, or Ocala eye since all three have optometrists and ophthalmologists on staff. I have a small cataract that will probably need treated in a few years, but right now we just need to get established in a practice with regular eye exams.

Any pros or cons on these three? Or should we consider a different group? Our insurance is regular medicare.
I go to PEEPERS at Colony Cottage. They seem to except about any kind of Ins. Hope this helps some. My glasses & exam is FREE!
