Cataract Surgery and Safety
All cataract surgeons know that patients do better in many facets of life after cataract surgery. We know that because our patients come back and tell us. They can read better, colors are more vibrant, driving, especially at night, is easier, and so on. We never, however, had a way to quantify this until in 2012, a retrospective study was conducted which showed that patients, especially patients over 80, who have undergone cataract surgery were much less likely to suffer hip fractures from a fall.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT US
Friendly, professional and knowledgable. Nice staff and no long waiting.
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!
