Why come to Florida Eye for your child’s eye care needs?

Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute’s pediatric ophthalmology service has the best reputation of any in South Florida – bar none. The facilities are warm and inviting, with every thought given to a child’s comfort. The pediatric staff is patient and caring, taking as much time as is needed to make a child as comfortable as possible. Many of our young patients have grown up in front of our eyes and then moved on to other physicians in the practice. Now if that’s not a testament to our services and staff…

Why choose Dr. Friedman?

There’s a reason Dr. Friedman is so well known in South Florida. It’s actually hard to meet someone who has never heard of him. Dr. Friedman’s expertise in his field is legendary, as is his caring nature and natural empathy towards children. His patients continue to book appointments with him long after he has fixed the immediate problems, such as retinopathy of prematurity. Just see what Debbie, mother of Bethany thinks of Dr. Friedman:

Dear Dr. Friedman & Staff: I cannot express in words how much your experience, professionalism & careful hands mean to me & my family. You gave my daughter the precious gift of sight. I truly do not know how to thank you enough. I know I will never forget you or your caring staff. Here’s to a long, healthy relationship while we all watch Bethany grow big & strong.


All of my best, Debbie

Thank you so much for taking care of my son Ben. His surgery went very well and his eye looks terrific. Also, thank you Becky for taking the time to assist me with my insurance to get us the best possible price. We truly appreciate your efforts.


Sincerely, June

We are still counting our blessings that we were lucky enough to have you as our doctor. When I look at Max, I am still amazed at your work. He is excelling in school and socially. He wouldn’t be where he is without you.


Sincerely, the Zelmans
