These are just a few testimonials from our wonderful patients, and why our team at SightTrust Eye Institute continuously strives to go above and beyond to offer innovative procedures while treating our clients with the utmost care and respect. Dr. Shatz, the Medical Director and CEO of SightTrust Eye Institute, is a highly-respected, board-certified ophthalmologist who is also a pioneer in laser-assisted cataract and refractive lens exchange surgery, bilateral same-day surgery, and premium lens implants such as multifocal and accommodating IOLs, and phakic intraocular lens implants. He has performed more than 30,000 intraocular procedures, and is considered the Southeast’s Leading implanter of the PanOptix Trifocal® and Visian phakic premium lenses. He is also one of the first and only surgeons in the country to perform all cataract and lens replacement procedures using the femtosecond laser, and performs bilateral, same-day surgeries on the vast majority of his patients.

Dr. Shatz is backed by our excellent and caring team of expert medical technicians, patient care coordinators, and office staff who treat all our patients like family. SightTrust Eye Institute prides itself on providing customized vision correction plans for patients who have farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism, using the most advanced technology available in the field. Some of our crowning achievements include: 

  • Being among the first practices to offer laser-assisted cataract surgery and one of the only centers in the country to exclusively perform laser-assisted lens surgery on every patient.
  • Dr. Shatz’s treating both eyes with separate procedures on the same day, which he has been performing for over a decade. Over 95% of our patients choose this option, and it is proven to be safe, improves recovery time, and gets you back to your normal routine even faster!
  • SightTrust Eye Institute specializes in phakic intraocular lens implantation – placing a “contact lens” inside the eye to treat myopia and/or astigmatism. This procedure is a terrific alternative to laser vision correction for those who either are not LASIK candidates, suffer from dry eyes, or prefer a “reversible” option.

Dr. Shatz has been featured on CBS News and Fox News for his groundbreaking surgeries, giving hope to those who have had no other options until now. Dr. Shatz provides consultative and surgical services to his colleagues in ophthalmology, optometry and various medical specialties. He has been published in the Millennium edition of the Who’s Who in Medicine, and has been recognized as one of the nation’s top ophthalmologists by the Consumer’s Research Council of America. Even with all these credentials to recommend our team, it’s the compassion, hope, and improved quality of life we give to our patients that we are most proud of.
