      After cataract surgery,I completely lost vision in my left eye and the inflammation was so severe that it was impossible for any doctor to see into the eye. I went to a second opinion doctor who recommended I see Dr. Uchiyama, the best eye doctor in Florida according to him. Even with this stellar recommendation, Dr. Uchiyama managed to exceed my expectations. He saved my vision in my left eye and treated me with the most kindness and care. I wholeheartedly recommend and appreciate Dr. Uchiyama!

      I presented with sudden loss of vision in one eye and Dr. Uchiyama addressed the problem and used state of the arts care that may have saved my vision. I trust his judgment and skills and hardly recommend him.

      Doctor Eduardo Uchiyama is the most professional and personal eye doctor ever . Due to his vigilance he not only saved my eye sight he saved my life. He was the only doctor of many to find out why I was losing my sight. His precedence and knowledge found the problems I was having. I recommend him 100% if you in need of a eye doctor for diseases of the retina & uveitis. I want to thank him publically for my eye sight and my life

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
