How does an ophthalmology practice change lives in South Florida?

SightTrust Institute is an ophthalmology practice that provides remarkable eye care advances for patients all along the southeastern Florida coast. From Palm Beach to Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale to Plantation, Davie to Miami, patients are enjoying more active lives, freed from the restrictions of eyeglasses and the hassles of contact lenses.

What changes is SightTrust Institute bringing to these patients’ lives through the power of ophthalmology, coupled with the latest technology?

Cataract Correction for Boca Raton, Plantation, & Davie


Dr. Andrew Shatz of SightTrust Institute has performed more than 20,000 cataract surgeries. Dr. Shatz keeps up with the newest surgical techniques and technologies, bringing innovations in ophthalmology to benefit his patients.

While many ophthalmology practices carry out cataract surgery, Dr. Shatz uses the LenSx laser to perform more precise cataract surgery that also causes fewer complications for patients in Plantation, Davie, and Boca Raton.

SightTrust takes advantage of advances in ophthalmology to remove cataracts in the safest way available—and then offers patients the benefits of state-of-the-art intraocular lenses to correct their vision in different ways. This means that patients can choose exactly how they want their vision corrected through cataract surgery…often enjoying better vision than before they developed cataracts.


New Options for Astigmatism & Nearsightedness for Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, & Miami


SightTrust Institute is well-known for its successful cataract treatments. However, Dr. Shatz wanted to do more than just treat people whose vision was threatened by conditions like cataracts.

These same wonders of ophthalmology that have radically diminished complications and reduced healing time from two or three months to a few days are being applied to give greater freedom to people with conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

As someone with one or more of these conditions, you’ve probably had to wear glasses most of your life. When you wanted to participate in Palm Beach contact sports, you tried contact lenses…and soon found out that getting contacts fitted properly can be a struggle with severe astigmatism, especially when it’s combined with other vision problems.

Dr. Shatz has used his knowledge of ophthalmology and extensive surgical experience to refine techniques for treating these problematic conditions. Fort Lauderdale patients who were stuck with glasses or contacts for decades can open their eyes to clear, nearly natural vision, thanks to Dr. Shatz’ innovative use of intraocular lenses, lasers, and other high-tech ophthalmology devices. Now, joining the Puff Dragon Boat Racing Team isn’t just a pipe dream for Miami rowers with myopia, thanks to Dr. Shatz’ ophthalmology expertise.

If you want to ditch your glasses so you can dive deeper into life, call SightTrust Institute today at +1 (877) 878-7890. We’ll set up a consultation with Dr. Shatz, and you can find out just how ophthalmology and technology can change your life.
