I had my cataracts surgery on both eyes performed at Saint Lucie Eye Associates. This was a horrible experience! The doctor that did the cataracts surgery on both eyes was Dr Derek Ohlstein. I paid thousands of extra dollars for multi focal lenses so I could see well for both distances and for reading (without glasses). The bottom line is the FEMTO laser misfired and left me with a permanent blur in my right eye and due to implanting the wrong prescription lenses I can't read without glasses!

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 like the time Dr. Ohlstein took in the exam room with me and the fact that he didn't mind any of my questions!

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.
