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 is a very knowledgeable physician that listens to your concerns. The staff is very friendly.
in Ft Pierce, FL |
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.

Dr. Ohlstein is a great surgeon. I have already recommended him to others and will continue to do so.
in Ft Pierce, FL |
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.
in Port Saint Lucie, FL |
The whole process for my cataract surgery was a simple and clean.
