KEEPING AN EYE ON THE FUTURE OF CATARACT SURGERY

By Mid Florida Eye Center –

Mid Florida Eye Center recently celebrated 25 years of commitment to the local community.

KEEPING AN EYE ON THE FUTURE OF CATARACT SURGERYOur “history of firsts” includes helping pioneer innovations in no-stitch/no-needle cataract surgery and opening the area’s first eye surgery center. Along with founders Dr. Jeffrey P. Baumann and Dr. Gregory J. Panzo, our physicians have invested in the community for decades. Looking ahead, we’ll continue to bring advancements in eye care, including specialized treatments for cataracts, to our patients in Central Florida.

KEEPING AN EYE ON NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR PATIENTS
Our cataract surgeons—Dr. Baumann, Dr. Panzo, and Dr. Keith C. Charles—are known throughout the country for their skill and expertise. (Their combined experience totals more than 130,000 cataract and laser procedures.) Thanks to their far-reaching reputation, Mid Florida Eye Center is often one of few eye care practices in the nation chosen to participate in clinical research studies. Patients benefit from access to cutting-edge treatments—many of which are available at a reduced cost.

KEEPING AN EYE ON NEW TECHNOLOGIES
Introducing the ORA System™
We’re always on the lookout for new technologies that benefit our patients. We recently invested in the ORA System™—a revolutionary technology used during cataract procedures to help surgeons achieve the best visual outcomes possible.

With ORA, we can accurately measure your eye’s unique characteristics to determine which intraocular lens implant (IOL) will fit best. And, if you’ve previously had LASIK or laser surgery, ORA could be your long-awaited ticket to getting the results you’ve always wanted.
