You are definitely in the right place if you are looking for an ophthalmologist as a Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Miami, Palm Beach, Parkland, or Davie, Florida resident. The ophthalmologist here at SightTrust Eye Institute is Dr. Andrew Shatz. Our center was the first facility in southeast Florida to offer LenSx laser cataract surgery, so our ophthalmologist is a true pioneer. Over the many years that he has been in practice, he has performed the procedure thousands of times, and this level of experience is hard to match.
Laser cataract surgery is the solution for people who experience the condition of presbyopia, which makes it hard to read text that is close to your eyes. The natural lens in the eye is responsible for most of the focusing power, and when it is compromised by cataracts, it becomes very difficult to see clearly. The laser cataract surgery our Fort Lauderdale-Miami ophthalmologist performs involves replacing this clouded natural lens with a crystal-clear prescription lens.
The surgery only takes a matter of minutes, and some patients are eligible for surgery on both eyes during the same visit. You do not have to worry about any lengthy, uncomfortable recovery time after our ophthalmologist performs the procedure, because you can do whatever you want to as soon as you leave the office. The results will be noticed within hours in some cases, and there is never any pain involved.
Countless Satisfied Patients
Without question, the most satisfying aspect of the work that we do is the positive feedback that we get from patients who are very grateful to our ophthalmologist Dr. Shatz. In these parts, Jimmy Johnson is legendary as the former coach of the Miami Hurricanes during their era of absolute dominance. He went on to coach the Dallas Cowboys to consecutive Super Bowl championships in 1992 and 1993. Ultimately, he came back home and finished his coaching career at the helm of the Miami Dolphins.
We are proud to be able to say that Jimmy Johnson is one of our many satisfied patients.
