i had my upper eye lids done and it wqs a very good experience and i had no pain at all , and everyone was very helpful and pleasant, and explained to me what i was to expect , i w. ould recommend Dr Fezza to anyone who is going to have the same procedure

Mary Agliardo

I had consulted for my surgery in another state before I came to FL, and Center for Sight was by far the better choice. Everyone was professional and organized. Dr. Fezza was recommended by an ophthalmologist. Folks in pre-op knew what they were doing, including keeping my mind off my apprehension. I also got the temple massage. No pain whatsoever. Easy peasy. Nice follow up phone call from Dr. Fezza that evening. Love the results.

I had the opportunity to experience such a lovely staff both at the front desk and the opticians who were helping those in need for frames and lenses. We were helped by a lovely assistant by the name of Jean. She was absolutely wonderful all around, she was extremely helpful, honest, and dedicated to bringing complete satisfaction to our visit. Although we were having issues obtaining proper information she was persistently patient and was exceptionally informative on the whole process. I would absolutely recommend this location to my peers, and I have extreme gratitude towards Jean's extraordinary demeanor.

I received Lasik from Dr. Lahner in October of 2017. Two days after the surgery I could tell my one of my eyes was not right. I have always had the same prescription in each eye since I can remember and he (or his staff) decided to adjust my eyes with different prescriptions. When speaking with the Doctor after the surgery he kept insisting that he thinks I had different prescriptions in each of my eyes and to this day he stands behind that comment, but based on the results of the surgery it is clear that the assessment is false. Had he adjusted both of my eyes with the same prescription I would have had great results. In their Lasik process it is not the doctor that diagnosis your eyes, it is his assistants. So I believe they miscalculated my prescription from his assistants and the doctors lack of involvement in the process. Now my left eye is currently blurry and I am having to still wear glasses and contacts. I have pain behind my left eye everyday now due to the stress of it trying to be the same lens as my right eye and I am about to start exploring answers from other doctors to assist with the pain. I went back to Dr. Lahner several times after the surgery to get him to fix the issue. After the third time he said he could not fix my eye and that I have to deal with it. That is not what I paid nearly $5000 for, which they offered no reimbursement for a poor job and simply took my money and sent me on my way. Its frustrating because on their website they advertise how much you will save not having to buy glasses or contacts after the completion of Lasik, yet her I am wearing glasses and contacts. To me this is false advertising and misleads people. Also they did not inform me of this prior to the surgery but they cannot fix your eyes if it is less than a .75 prescription off, which if you have this difference in your eyes you will notice a substantial difference when comparing. So if they miscalculate and you are in this rage, you are stuck there and sent on your way. They informed me that they could possibly fix it in 10 years or so once my eyes start getting worse. When all is said and done I wish I would have gone to a different doctor and I recommend you do the same. I did not like the lack of involvement with Dr. Lahner and how your surgery is based on assistants and their calculations. In the end this simply makes you feel like you are a number and not a person to them. Also I am disappointed in my results and the permanent pain I now have in my eye. They did not even try to offer me a solution and almost acted if it is not their problem anymore. I would also recommend trying to find a doctor that offers a satisfaction guarantee or at least some sort of money back guarantee if receiving poor results. I am confident that there are better doctors out there to complete Lasik with much better results and care.

“On May 15th, 2018 Dr. Shoemaker performed cataract surgery on me using the new multifocal lens. While initially I had some concerns as to the accuracy of this lens, the surgery far exceeded my expectations. Not only am I 20-20 out of the surgically corrected eye at a distance but my intermediate vision is greatly improved so that the use of glasses for using my computer is no longer needed. The staff both before and after surgery answered all my questions in a most professional manner. Thank you Dr. Shoemaker and your well trained staff. Richard Weissfeld, Attorney at Law”

The center for sight in venice is staffed with friendly,kind, and competent staff. Unfortunately they are evidently overwhelmed by a huge number of patients, causing inexcusable long waits. I was there for 3 hours yesterday, much of which was waiting between various techs then the doctor.

Lili Legg

The staff at Center For Sight is wonderful. Friendly, pleasant people who are excellent at what they do. The doctors are brilliant! My husband had 2 cornea transplants with Dr. Lahners and I had 2 cataract surgeries with Dr. Shoemaker. We couldn’t be happier with our results. We feel blessed to have these wonderfully skilled doctors in Florida.

A complete and through examination and evaluation of my eyes and discussion of a treatment plan designed to provide the best outcomes for me.

I’ve had a fantastic experience with Center for Sight and Dr. Lahners. All the staff are friendly and very professional. Both the initial testing phase and the actual cataract surgery are run like an assembly line, but as I was involved in manufacturing I believe the best person to do any job is one who does it repeatedly. All the staff are so well trained and friendly I felt like I was being treated by an incredible unified team. Simply an amazing experience. Thank you Dr Lahners and your fantastic staff. I’ve never had better vision.

I had my cataract surgery in February with Dr Shoemaker. I was so nervous and scared because I never had surgery before. I was so impressed with his staff and the organization of the entire procedure. They really took the time to be sure I was comfortable before and after with the process. I even had an aftercare call 2 months later.

Dr Shoemaker thoroughly reviewed the issue for further clarification, addressed any concerns, and outlined a treatment plan. Therefore, my consultation with him was most productive and highly satisfactory.

My entire experience with Center for Sight was very pleasant. Everyone that I came in contact with was very polite and courteous. I did not see a frowning face in any of the three different offices that I visited. The places were all spotless and with more than enough seating in all waiting areas. The lens replacement was painless and exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend Center for Sight and Dr. David W. Shoemaker to anyone.

Pat Murray

I knew of Dr Shoemaker from my mother who loved Dr Shoemaker. I have to say this was an extraordinary meeting. He was more than I expected and his staff of exceptional talent took such good care of me. I would highly recommend Center for Sight to anyone who is in need of care for their eyes. My son has an appointment set to meet with Dr Lahner regarding his eligibility for lasik surgery. I know he will be as satisfied as I am for treatment of his sight improvement.

LPGA Cathy Schmidt

I’m so thrilled my surgeon Dr. Schwartz referred me to Dr Shoemaker. Yesterday was my pre-surgery evaluation, From checking in through my final meeting everyone on the staff was excellent. I truly felt that they did a thorough work up and every step through my evaluation was personally felt by all personal. I’m truly excited for my surgery followed by my new but lost ability to see again without glasses. Having my vision back means freedoms I had lost due to poor sight. Thank you Center for sight I know I’m in the best hands, care and doctors. LPGA Cathy Schmidt

Brian Mcdonald

Alway's very helpful and courteous. I will be going back for eye lid surgery with Dr Fezza. I know they will do a great job.

Sherri Coble

Lisa Rufo

Office and medical staff are nice. However the wait time is insulting. I am a younger patient and to see so many elderly people waiting for so long was awful and it is not necessary. My appointment was at 2:30 left at almost 5:00. These tests that were done are fast an easy and it was ridiculous waiting in between and then to see the Dr. for 10 minutes. I was referred to this Dr. to see if cataracts are causing an issue I am having. After waiting almost 3 hours I am seated in a room with an assistant who tells me about the cataract surgeries and cost. I do not know if I need surgery mind you. Dr. finally come in and says," What can I help you with"?. Really you could not look at the chart or read the records from the referred Dr, or ask the person who I explained it all to? He checked my eyes, and then quickly asked a few questions, I felt too rushed . He may be a great surgeon but I was unimpressed.

Catherine Dente

Dr Shoemaker and the entire staff at Center for Sight are top-notch. Every person treats you kindly. They have every tool and specialist imaginable at their disposal and on their team. My cataracts were removed this month, and my vision is improved to a degree greater than I even expected. The follow-up visit with Dr Schaub was a CELEBRATION. Thank you to each person involved.

Steven Carruthers

Cannot say enought about the staff at both Venice and the Surgery Center. Everyone truely cared about my Surgery. It was if I was the only person they attended to that day. My mother had the same experience almost four years ago and I knew that when I need surgery, this was the only place I would have it done.

Walter Holbert

Dr. Fezza was extremely kind, respectful and professional in caring for my wife.

Lorraine S

Just getting started with the whole cataract procedure. Very impressed with staff and process. Very efficient; hardly had to wait and Dr. Shoemaker was just great. Explained the procedure and what I can expect. Case worker was great explaining what my insurance would cover and what I was expected to pay. Only downside - I couldn’t fill out the new patient forms online. The forms weren’t fillable so I had to hand write in the information. Cataract surgery scheduled for July 30th.

Doris Miller

Guy Kezirian

As an ophthalmologist I have many choices on where to go for eye surgery. My distance vision was excellent going in but I was tired of wearing reading glasses. Dr. Shoemaker selected the perfect lens for my situation - I now see great at all distances with no glasses. His surgical technique, the patient experience and the results are all best-in-class. I would (and do) send all my friends and family to Dr. Shoemaker. It takes a top surgeon to operate on a 20/20 eye and improve the vision--that's what I experienced and I could not be happier with the result.

STEVE BASEMAN

THERE IS NOTHING I COULD SUGGEST TO MAKE MY EXPERENCE WITH MY CATERACT PROCEDURE ANY BETTER THEN I HAD YOUR ATTENTION TO CARE FOR THE PATIENT FLAWLESS THANK YOU STEPHEN J.BASEMAN

John Gering

Cliff Bueno

Quite the operation there. Felt very comfortable before having my surgery. My hand was held during the entire 15 min process. Dr. Shoemaker when finished said perfect, which is just what you want to hear.

Larry Martin

Everyone was very professional with me and I was led through all the needed tests. I was familiar with the routine beacause my wife had cataract surgery done here about three years ago. We were happy with her treatment/results and that is why I am now a patient.

Nancy Nelson

Claire Edwards

I can't say enough about the excellence of my cataract surgery. I was happy with my contacts until the catracts, and I wanted to be able to see with the permanent lenses, not just as well, but better than with the contacts. And I got it. I knew when this happened to me that I wanted Dr. Shoemaker for my surgeon and I was so right. Also, all the staff and the Dr., make you feel so comfortable and that they care. Claire

My appointment was at 2:30 left at almost 5:00. These tests that were done are fast an easy and it was ridiculous waiting in between and then to see the Dr. for 10 minutes. I was referred to this Dr. to see if cataracts are causing an issue I am having. After waiting almost 3 hours I am seated in a room with an assistant who tells me about the cataract surgeries and cost. I do not know if I need surgery mind you. Dr. finally come in and says," What can I help you with"?. Really you could not look at the chart or read the records from the referred Dr, or ask the person who I explained it all to? He checked my eyes, and then quickly asked a few questions, I felt too rushed . He may be a great surgeon but I was unimpressed.

Dr Shoemaker and the entire staff at Center for Sight are top-notch. Every person treats you kindly. They have every tool and specialist imaginable at their disposal and on their team. My cataracts were removed this month, and my vision is improved to a degree greater than I even expected. The follow-up visit with Dr Schaub was a CELEBRATION. Thank you to each person involved.

Cannot say enought about the staff at both Venice and the Surgery Center. Everyone truely cared about my Surgery. It was if I was the only person they attended to that day. My mother had the same experience almost four years ago and I knew that when I need surgery, this was the only place I would have it done.

Dr. Fezza was extremely kind, respectful and professional in caring for my wife.

As an ophthalmologist I have many choices on where to go for eye surgery. My distance vision was excellent going in but I was tired of wearing reading glasses. Dr. Shoemaker selected the perfect lens for my situation - I now see great at all distances with no glasses. His surgical technique, the patient experience and the results are all best-in-class. I would (and do) send all my friends and family to Dr. Shoemaker. It takes a top surgeon to operate on a 20/20 eye and improve the vision--that's what I experienced and I could not be happier with the result.

THERE IS NOTHING I COULD SUGGEST TO MAKE MY EXPERENCE WITH MY CATERACT PROCEDURE ANY BETTER THEN I HAD YOUR ATTENTION TO CARE FOR THE PATIENT FLAWLESS THANK YOU STEPHEN J.BASEMAN

Cliff Bueno

Quite the operation there. Felt very comfortable before having my surgery. My hand was held during the entire 15 min process. Dr. Shoemaker when finished said perfect, which is just what you want to hear.

Larry Martin

Everyone was very professional with me and I was led through all the needed tests. I was familiar with the routine beacause my wife had cataract surgery done here about three years ago. We were happy with her treatment/results and that is why I am now a patient.

Claire Edwards

I can't say enough about the excellence of my cataract surgery. I was happy with my contacts until the catracts, and I wanted to be able to see with the permanent lenses, not just as well, but better than with the contacts. And I got it. I knew when this happened to me that I wanted Dr. Shoemaker for my surgeon and I was so right. Also, all the staff and the Dr., make you feel so comfortable and that they care. Claire

Candace Anderson

A very efficient facility Friendly staff On time I was very impressed

Paul Blaisdell

I was totally impressed with all the staff and the service provided from the first visit to having my second eye surgery. The Center for Sight would be highly recommended for anyone requiring eye care of any kind. Thank You, Paul Blaisdell
