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!

I have Fuchs' Dystrophy and several years ago my Michigan doctor did DSAEK corneal transplants and cataract surgery in both eyes very successfully. He was trained by Dr. Gorovoy in Ft. Myers and recommended I see him. Dr. Gorovoy also trained Dr. Polack at Ocala Eye and recommended him as a local doctor. I see Dr. Gorovoy annually and Dr. Polack between visits to Dr. Gorovoy. I highly recommend both doctors.

I'm waiting for my cataract operation later this month. I'm happy with the Doctor and most of the staff at their office. They are very busy but when the doctor is with you, the focus is on you. This is different than what we experienced at our first home. I must say I didn't like the way I was spoken to when the very nice young girl was trying to take my eye pressure. Somehow, someway, the prayer I said before I went into the office must have worked because divine intervention held me back from going N.J. on this lovely girl. All in all May 24th is the big day. I'll keep you posted. I'll also let the OP know privately who the Doctor is so nobody flips me out with a horror story. I think the Dr's name may have been Vinny Boombatz.
