Dr. Ireland-@ St. Lukes--the best , most modern equipment--when the Admiral was on another health plan-she used Mid Fl eye for one procedure, when she went on medicare , she went to St Lukes a world of difference--world class vs a meat mkt

Dr Ireland-did both my eyes-I used laser surgery with proprietary lenses--been good for 5 years

Dr Ireland is great no doubt. So many people I know have been give back their sight by her. I would have used her to but there was an insurance problem.

I went with Dr. Wehrly, Lake Eye. Beautiful Job on both eyes. I'm grateful.

Depends on your insurance - Lake Eye has good opthamologists - both my wife and I used them for catatacts

Highly recommend St.. Luke’s. Worth the extra cost to get laser surgery

I am very impressed with Dr. Jodie Armstrong at Ocala Eye, office across from Laurel Manor Rec Center, off 466.

I cannot believe how perfectly I see. She has stellar background. Georgetown. And she is both smart and kind.

Another vote for Lake Eye, my Dr is Scot Holman and have enjoyed great success. Most likely all the recommendations you get here will be fine since those making the recommendation have also enjoyed success.

Another vote for Dr Armstrong of Ocala Eye. She did a wonderful job and accepts Medicare. She is very busy, if that says anything.

And another vote for Dr Holman at Lake Eye. He has done close to 20,000 cataract surgeries. I also had the laser procedure vs a knife. Most cataract surgeons in this area have done far more of these than any other area of the country. Even a place like John's Hopkins, their most prolific surgeon may do a couple hundred a year. Here they do close to a 1000 a year. So your probably fine with any of the major eye places. I did do a lot of research and my findings were that the 3 surgeons at Lake eye had each done a lot of them. I think the one who had done the least had done over 12,000 cataract surgeries. So that is where I decided to go.

Dr Panzo at Mid Fla Eye on 441, Summerfield did my surgery last year. I've been using them for all my eye appointments for 15 years. Highly recommended.
