"The idea of me having cataracts scared us both! But your staff did an amazing job stepping us through the painless process!"


At Florida Eye Specialists and Cataract Institute, one of the conditions we see and treat most often are cataracts. Our highly-trained and skilled surgeons are some of the most experienced in the field, and that’s why more and more patients trust their treatment to us. We’re proud that hundreds of patients every year trust us to find solutions to their eye issues.

A cataract is a common condition that causes a clouding of the eye’s lens, and affects millions of people each year, including more than half of all Americans over the age of 65. While more common in older people, it can also be present at birth or caused by medications, disease, trauma, or radiation.

Cataract Symptoms

  • Double vision
  • Poor vision in bright light

Our doctors and staff deliver your eye care with a personal service that’s second to none. We consider our patients an extension of our family, and treat you the same way

Protein buildup in the lens slowly forms dense, cloudy areas that causing a progressive, but painless loss of vision. Light simply can’t get through the lens as easily. Our lenses cloud naturally as we age, especially if you’re over 65.

However, the condition shouldn’t be accepted as part of your natural aging process – they are serious and require prompt medical attention. If left untreated, cataracts will worsen over time and lead to permanent vision loss or even blindness.


We perform various tests to diagnose the eye condition. Typically, a dilated eye exam tests your vision and examines the condition of the lens and other parts of the eye. We may also use tonometry, a procedure that measures the pressure in the eye, as well as other diagnostic procedures.


Cataract surgery and laser cataract surgery can restore your vision and your ability to read, work or do the things you enjoy. It’s one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in the U.S., and can be performed quickly and easily with minimal risk of complications. In fact, it has one of the highest success rates of any type of surgery. It takes only a few minutes to perform and is painless for most patients. You can return home the same day by having someone drive you home.

Routine Exams

Annual exams are the best way to detect cataracts as early as possible and to plan an effective treatment method. Early detection and treatment helps prevent vision loss.
