Cataracts are the number one cause of blindness worldwide and affect almost 25 million people age 40 and older. By age 80, roughly half of all American adults have cataracts.
The good news is that modern advances in cataract surgery have made the procedure one of the safest and most effective types of operations. In the U.S., some 3.5 million cataract surgeries are performed annually.
You only have one set of eyes, so if you’re going to undergo cataract surgery to improve your vision, you should trust that job to a specialized eye care surgery center.
Know What You’re Getting
Tremendous skill is needed when performing cataract surgery, and surgeons have a narrow margin for error when operating on the eye. Your eyes, vision, and quality of life are too precious to leave in the hands of surgery centers who may not focus exclusively on the eyes and whose staff may perform different types of procedures, such as urology or arthroscopy. At Ocala Eye Surgery Center, all of our team members are expertly trained in ophthalmology procedures and all we do, every day, relates to comprehensive eye care for patients.
In fact, we have one of the most accredited, experienced, and licensed surgery centers in the region. Our surgery center is accredited by AAAHC, the nation’s leading accrediting organization of outpatient facilities. We have undergone rigorous professional scrutiny by the highest-qualified AAAHC healthcare professionals and were found to provide quality care while meeting all of the federal, state, and regulatory guidelines.
You obviously want your eye care surgery center to have your best interests at heart. Ocala Eye has built a reputation for being a patient-centered practice providing a full continuum of care from the moment you walk into our office, through diagnosis and surgery, and even follow-up and recovery.
The facilities at Ocala Eye are measured against nationally recognized standards of care and have demonstrated a proven commitment to maintaining patient safety and privacy. In other words, there’s a reason 95% of patients say they would refer their friends and family to our care.
