Eye on Health: Safe Surgery


The eye is the most complex organ in the human body. To care for it, many different professionals must work together to ensure your vision remains intact. This team includes opticians, optometrists, who are non-medical doctors, and ophthalmologists, who are licensed and medically trained to treat all eye disease and perform surgery when necessary.

A dangerous bill is moving through the Florida Legislature that would grant optometrists the right to operate on your eye. Only an ophthalmologist has the training and experience necessary to perform surgery.

Contact your legislator today and help keep eye surgery safe for all Floridians.

Dr. Adam Katz, President of the Florida Society of Ophthalmology
