The SurgiCare Center for eye surgery at Eye Centers of Florida
The SurgiCare Center at Eye Centers of Florida was established to ensure our patients benefit from world class facilities, experienced surgeons and medical staff, in a warm, friendly and caring environment. Eye Surgery for cataracts, retinal detachment, glaucoma, eyelid surgery or other procedures can be a very stressful experience for the patient and the family. This is why we created a separate surgical suite adjacent to our main office to serve the unique needs of our surgical patients. Even under stressful circumstances we do our best to help our patients have a pleasant and comfortable experience.
