I have a rare condition that was causing blindness. I was scared, and unsure what was going on. Dr. Braunstein literally saved my eyesight and helped me begin to heal after my first visit. I like the staff, no fuss, just quality service. I’m very thankful for them and recommend them with the highest regard.

I am a retired anesthesiologist with experience in UK eye hospitals. Whilst wintering in Lake Wales, I developed cloudy vision 5 years after cataract surgery and lens implant. I saw Dr. B at 36 hours notice and he agreed with my self diagnosis of posterior capsule opacities,10 mins later did laser surgery with immediate perfect result. Next day follow up showed all was OK. All round excellent experience!

Dr. Braunstein is wonderful. I recommend him highly. He takes his time and really cares about his patients.
