“Dr Montzka returned my mothers eyesight to her. She had a macular hole surgery by Dr Montzka and regained her vision fully. The surgery was relatively short about 1 hr. We cannot thank him enough. In addition to being good at his skills in surgery, he is very professional as well. Office staff were very kind and understanding and accommodate the scheduling as much as possible. I will trust him with my eyes. Thank you for all your help Dr. Montzka, there is no word that can explain our gratitude.”Anonymous
“Dr Montzka at the Florida Eye Specialists & Cataract Institute repaired my retinal detachment and saved my vision! He and the staff there did a wonderful job and he was very professional, efficient and caring! I’m so thankful to him and his nurse Amy!”Anonymous
“A 2nd opinion with Dr. Montzka was such a relief for me. Dr. Montzka has reassured me in knowing I have ways to improve my vision. I’m a diabetic for 30yrs and it’s taking a toll on my eyes. He took time and answered our questions and discussed a treatment plan and were setting up surgery dates. Thank you dr. Montzka and staff.”Kelly S.
