“From my first consultation to cataract surgery on both eyes, Ocala Eye and Dr. Jank provided excellent customer service and quality care. I have multifocal lenses now and am seeing 20/20. Dr. Jank called after each surgery to see how I felt and if I had any questions! Superior care provided by Ocala Eye and Dr. Jank.”
