While most eye doctors do some premium cataract and refractive lens surgery, this is the only procedure Dr. Andrew Shatz performs, which gives him a unique ability to tailor the results to your individual vision goals.

100% of our patients get laser cataract and refractive lens surgery with premium lenses, and over 98% have both eyes treated on the same day (something not offered by other centers). 

Additionally, Dr. Shatz was the first surgeon to implant the AcrySof®IQ PanOptix® Trifocal and Trifocal Toric Intraocular lenses in South Florida, and is the first to implant the lenses bilaterally in the United States. The AcrySof®IQ PanOptix® Trifocal and Trifocal Toric Intraocular Lens (IOL) are the first and only trifocal lenses for patients undergoing cataract or refractive lens replacement surgery. PanOptix is clinically shown to deliver an exceptional combination of near, intermediate and distance vision while significantly reducing the need for glasses after surgery. 

Advanced technology Trifocal IOLs provide a more complete range of vision, particularly if you now suffer from presbyopia. We believe that Trifocal IOLs are your best opportunity to potentially reduce your dependency on glasses for day-to-day activities.

Dr. Shatz specialized in these premium intraocular lens implants, in addition to providing his patients with the option to have both eyes performed on the same day. Which mean less down-time and better vision, quicker. For more information, please visit our website at or call 954-653-0100.
