If cataracts are obscuring your vision and affecting your quality of life, it’s time to consider cataract surgery.
At Eye Centers of Florida, your cataract care experience is designed to make the process easy. At our Accredited SurgiCare Center in Fort Myers, we pull out all the stops to make surgery affordable, comfortable, and effective.

In order to make the process of cataract surgery as safe and effective as possible, Eye Centers of Florida upholds a commitment to providing access to highly trained staff at every step of the journey. Not every surgery center employs full-time Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) to ensure patient comfort and safety during cataract procedures, but we do. Our CRNAs are trained to carefully administer anesthesia to patients during surgery.
Our CRNAs have more than 50 years of combined experience helping patients undergo surgical procedures, and because they’re permanent members of our surgical team, they’re involved in your procedure from start to finish. They’re familiar with your medical history and work with every department involved in your care, improving their understanding of your needs before, during, and after surgery.
Our entire team places great importance in making sure that you are at-ease going into every procedure. If you ever have any questions or anxiety about your cataract surgery, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
The outcome of your cataract surgery depends largely on your surgical team and the intraocular lens implant (IOL) options they make available to you.
During cataract surgery, the eye’s clouded natural lens is replaced by a permanent, artificial lens called an IOL. Because different IOLs have various functions and benefits, the type of IOL you choose directly impacts your post-surgery vision.
At Eye Centers of Florida, we want to help you choose the perfect IOL for your lifestyle and vision correction goals. Eye Centers of Florida offers more IOL options than any other eye care provider in Southwest Florida. We encourage you to explore your options and talk to your surgeon and clinical team about the best selection for you.
Dr. Brown and his team consistently complete over 2,000 cataract surgeries every year. When it comes time for your eye surgery, you want to entrust your vision to an eye care provider who prioritizes your satisfaction, safety, and health. We designed Eye Centers of Florida’s Accredited SurgiCare Center around fulfilling those needs.
Our Fort Myers surgery center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC), the nation’s leading accrediting organization for outpatient facilities.
