Default Eye Doctors

I was told by my eye Dr, I have cataracts. I do trust him but I would like to get a second opinion. I read here a little while back of some recommendations people had posted of the Dr.'s they had seen. I live in the Spanish Springs area. Would like to stay close to this area. Any suggestions? Thank-You

We've used Ocala Eye and they're good with what they do but I recently changed to St. Luke's because they're connected with TVHC and I want ALL my records in one portal for my providers. Just had my 1st visit there and I can't tell you how impressed I was. I was in and out in a bit over an hour and Dr. Mequio has great referances (google his name)!

I use Lake Eye and they have an office right there in the Sharon Morse building. I use Dr Vocci as my eye doctor and had doctor Holman do my cataract surgery. The three doctors they have who do cataract surgery are all excellent. The one who has done the fewest has done over 12,000 and Holman has done about 20,000.

I've been using Ocala Eye (352-430-3356) in the Laurel Manor professional center across from Laurel Manor rec center for the past 8 years. Ocala eye has complimentary round-trip transportation service from your house to their surgical center in Ocala on the day of cataract surgery. All other appointments, including follow-ups, can be done at Ocala Eye at the Laurel Manor facility. I consider the staff at Ocala Eye to be superb.

I agree.

Dr. Holman at Lake Eye is great. Located by the hospital. He did my cataracts last month.

Truth is obscure when lies are spread. John McCain released the phony Dossier.

Mid Florida seemed honest and good to me. They confirmed what I already knew that I had a cataract in one eye but they said it would be about 10 years before I need to take any action.

Cataracts are a common result of aging and occur frequently in older people. About one in five adults over the age of 65 has a cataract.

Wish I had known that. Had cataract surgery by a Ocala and had to make 7-8 trips to a Ocala to at least 4 of their facilities. STAY LOCAL!!
