My name is Barry Cohen and I had my cataracts surgery on both eyes performed at Saint Lucie Eye Associates. I am sorry to say that for me it was a horrible experience! My original doctor there and the doctor that did my cataracts surgery on both eyes was Dr. Derek Ohlstein. Since I make my living online I paid many thousands of dollars extra on top of the regular surgery cost to have multi-focal lenses implanted into my eyes because I was assured by Dr. Ohlstein that with these lenses I would be able to see well at both distances for driving while also being able to read normal small type fonts both online and in reading materials such as in books, magazines and on labels. All Without Glasses! This is the bottom line! During the surgery, the FEMTO laser that they used to cut loose my eyes lenses, misfired or was not set properly as it left my right eye with a permanent blur spot in my field of vision. Also, both implant lenses were the wrong prescription because I'm now in glasses!

Had appt. for a routine eye exam with Dr. Ohlstein and was shocked at his arrogant and unfriendly attitude, what has changed in his life, he used to be friendly and asked if you had any questions. I need a cataract removed and I sure don't want him doing it.

I saw Dr. Ohlstein once, at which point I cautioned him that my corneas were sensitive and prone to abrasions before he examined me. His exam caused extensive corneal abrasions. When I left the office, my eyes were still numb. Once the numbing drops wore off, I returned to the office, where he examined me and told me there were no abrasions, that I must be having an allergic reaction. An assistant told me later that she could see the abrasions from across the room. Do NOT recommend.

I have had several doctors over the years and can truly say that Dr. Ohlstein is one of the most professional and caring doctors I have known. He is quick to explain things in terms I can understand and makes me feel like the most important patient he has! That's saying a lot these days!

I can't thank Dr. Ohlstein enough for taking care of my eyes through the Fort Pierce Lions Club. It is so nice to know there are doctors who truly care about their patients. I highly recommend St. Lucie Eye Associates.

Dr. Ohlstein has been monitoring my eyes for about a year. I am 70 years old. He was the first eye doctor to finally diagnose my eye problem - ocular hypertension. I have had elevated high pressure in my eyes for a few years and it wasn't until I started seeing Dr. Ohlstein that he not only diagnosed my problem. He closely monitors me with routine checkups. He answers all questions and I don't feel rushed at my appointment. I would definitely recommend him to others.

He is very pleasant and professional, enthusiastic and caring. He put my fears to ease, told me what to expect with my surgeries. The most wonderful thing is that he made me see again. I had lazick surgery and cataract done, can't wait to get the other eye done next week.
