Even though cataracts are so prevalent, they are not difficult to treat. Cataracts are a clouding of the lens of the eye, which prevents passage of light into the eye. The solution to cataracts is cataract surgery, which requires a surgeon to remove the deteriorated lens and replace it with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens or IOL. Over 3 million Americans undergo cataract surgery annually, making it one of the most common surgeries in the United States. In fact, the entire surgery lasts only about 20 minutes, and most people can resume normal activities fairly rapidly.

Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease caused by damage or breakdown of the macula, the small part of the eye’s retina that is responsible for our central vision. This condition affects both distance and close vision and can make some activities (like threading a needle or reading) very difficult or impossible. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of severe vision loss in people over 65.

In any given year, physicians at Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute perform numerous glaucoma-related eye exams and procedures. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in America, and the doctors and staff at Florida Eye understand the importance of annual eye exams, especially for those at risk of the disease. Our doctors will help you determine the best course of glaucoma treatment for your particular condition. Should you be on medication or are you a candidate for Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), a surgery for glaucoma? We will help you make that decision.

We are both so appreciative of the care that we received from the Florida Eye Microsurgical team Wednesday night, June 24th, 2020 during Richard’s surgery as well as each and every time that we are at your Boynton Beach, Boca Raton, and Wellington facilities. To the surgical team: Dr. Katz, Dr. Qiunones, Cindy, Tracy, Dee, Angela, and Rhoda at reception – your professionalism, thoughtfulness, and good humor really helped Richard through this difficult time. And kudos to Juan, Wally, Bob, and others on Dr. Katz’s team. Thank you. To Dr. Schechter, Danielle, and the rest of Dr. Schecter’s team- as always, we appreciate your attentiveness and kindness each and every time we are at Florida Eye. Thank you. To all the staff of Florida Eye – you are all dedicated professionals and are the unsung heroes to both of us and all your patients. You are the greatest!

Thanks to all of you, Nina & Richard

I have been referring retina patients, including family members, to Dr Randy Katz of Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute for many years. I have been impressed with his clinical skill and diagnostic ability. I have always gotten great feedback from my patients and they have always felt that they received excellent care. Recently, I noticed a retinal defect on my eye on a scan that was taken in my office. As an optometrist I understood the importance of having a retinal specialist look at this defect. After careful examination Dr Katz assured me that the defect was benign and didn’t require treatment. After my visit to his office, I understood why my patients have such confidence in Dr Katz. He delivered compassionate and meticulous care. He is truly an asset to our community.

Sincerely, Dr. Salomon

I am so grateful I chose Dr. Jonathan Criss to perform my cataract surgery. My vision now is better than it’s ever been. He is extremely intelligent, a compassionate and caring person and a truly outstanding doctor. I count myself truly lucky to have found him.

Thanks, Deborah
