Dr Scott Wehrly with Lake Eye did both of mine, 5 years ago, with multi-focal lenses. Very satisfied and don't need glasses, at all, since the surgery.

I had my eyes done by Dr. Gutti at Lake Eye Associates. A nice guy with expert skills. It was painless. The hardest part of the whole affair was having to take a nap in the afternoon after the surgery (I jest!).

Dr. Kimberly Ireland at St. Luke’s.

Dr. Ireland is maybe the most sought-after cataract surgeon in The Villages. She did both my eyes successfully and without incident.

Default cataract surgery

I went to Ocala Eye and they were great. Originally I went to Lake Eye but gave up when the Dr. I saw told me he didn't do surgery and then they failed to follow up with me.

Lake Eye Associates Scott Wehrly, MD 1400 US Hwy 441 N The Villages Regional Medical Center Suite 521 The Villages, FL 32159 352-750-2020

My wife and I both had surgery for cataracts Plus near and far corrective lenses added. Great job and worth every penny.

I was pleased with the results at Ocala Eye BUT...most follow ups were in their multiple offices in Ocala. Felt I was a long distance commuter and thank God for my GPS in locating those offices in Ocala. The surgery itself is also done in Ocala.
Would use a local eye center if I were you, unless you (rather your driver since you cannot drive after eye dilators applied)like driving

I've been told that St. Luke's is the best, I'm blind in one eye and have a cataract on the other eye, the only one who wants to do it is the VA. so I'm between a rock and a hard spot.

Then you have to pay extra for surgery center - not so w/St. Lukes

I recently used Dr. Seaborn Hunt III of Ocala and The Villages for Cataracts, Astigmatism correction, and a glaucoma stint. My eyes are now 20/20. He and his staff are very professional and will take care of you. I know one other person that also used Dr. Hunt and he was also satisfied.
