Welcome To South Palm Eye

Am I Ready For Cataract Surgery?

Many times a patient will ask, “How will I know when I’m ready for surgery?” or “Is the cataract ripe yet?” We tell patients that the decision to do cataract surgery is dependent on each individual patient’s ability to perform his or her activities of normal daily living easily, enjoyably, comfortably and safely. Everybody’s activities of normal daily living are different and include those things that you need to do and those things that you like to do on a daily basis. So “ripe” is different for different people. If you play golf and you can’t follow the golf ball, if you like to read but get tired after 15-20 minutes, or if you have difficulty driving at night, among other things, these are all signs that cataract surgery might be indicated for you.
Today, there are many options when it comes to cataract surgery. At South Palm Eye Associates we realize that each patient is unique and that no single approach is successful in every patient. Through extensive testing and getting to know our patient’s needs and desires, we can recommend what’s best for you.

Friendly, professional and knowledgable. Nice staff and no long waiting.

Charles

ZocDoc

Both the doctor and the gals who work with him and his patients, are genuine, caring, personable, knowledgeable, professional in every way. The front desk staff is warm and friendly. They take a personal interest in the patient as a whole person, not just a set of eyes. It’s always a positive experience visiting this office.

I had a great experience, staff was friendly, courteous and all was very prompt. A lot of places make you wait no matter what time you’re scheduled for and here they were true to appointment time. Doctor Oppenheimer was really great at explaining everything going on, I saw her back in 2014 and this is what brought me back to South Palm Eye Associates. Thank you for the great experience!
