Dr. Tyson & his fine team performed wonderful cataract surgery on both eyes over the last twoweeks. The results are absolutely fantastic!. Both eyes tested yesterday at 20/20 and I see perfectly the finest print and also great distance with no requirement for eye glasses. I was scared before the surgery but it turned out to be a "piece of cake". No pain or any kind of discomfort post op and back to work as a courier 2 days later. The vivid colors are amazing and I'm so thankful. We are blessed.

We met Dr. Tyson and were advised to have new Laser lens implants with cataract surgery. I saw the 2 of 17 reviews that appeared negative. Man, am I glad I didn't listen to these who probably work for a competitor! His Resume reads like a novel and consider all the research he is doing on new lenses, they don't ask rookies to do these! Dr. Tyson and his Team get a 5/5, my vision 20/20 BOTH EYES & NO PAIN. I advise all considering: JUST DO IT! Keep up the AWESOME WORK, TEAM TYSON!

I am so happy, not only with the results of my surgery but with the professional and caring staff and the smooth process at Tyson Eye in Cape Coral. I have never seen very well and have been wearing glasses since I was 3. I've had nothing but problems over the years. After Dr. Tyson removed the cataracts and replaced the lens on both eyes, I see as I have never seen in my life! I can even read without glasses! Thank you to Dr. Tyson and his staff. They are the best!

Every interaction I have had with Dr. Tyson and his staff has been EXCELLENT. Timely service, pleasant staff, and complete answering of all my questions. Dr. Tyson performed cataract surgery and other procedures in both of my eyes, and all has gone exceedingly well. Dr. Tyson LISTENED to my issues and got the job done. I am very grateful to him.

I would recommend Dr. Tyson to everyone. I see better now than I ever have. I can't thank him enough. And his staff of ladies in Naples are so professional and provide such excellent care. Thank you all so much. I will always be so grateful to you all.

Horrible horrible experience, he needs new office staff as he may be unaware but he just lost a patient. After having my insurance approve a Bleph, I had my surgery scheduled for tommorow, I got a call last night saying they never got an approval. My surgery was scheduled from last week , with my approval letter, but she said don't worry I have your approval letter. I made numerous calls today always told she'll call me back. I just called at 5. Never again will I go there.

I’ve had many eye exams/purchased glasses at Cape Coral Eye Center over last 22 yrs. On 5/23/16 Dr. Kaplan recommended I see Dr. F. Tyson for an Eyelid Surgery Eval. & explained how it could help vision. I've left a MSG cancelling My Surgery on 7/5 & I will never return to Cape Coral Eye Centers for anything. I have never been so humiliated nor, have I ever dealt with, such Unprofessional & Incompetent Health Care Staff (seemed to have NO Medical knowledge) in my 24 years as a Lic. Nurse.

While I did not see Dr. Tyson but his associate, Dr. Tibbetts, I -- like other patients --feel Tyson Eye Care is in it for the money. I didn't get out of there without paying up front (despite having both Medicare and supplemental insurance). Then, after my insurance company paid them, they wouldn't refund my money. It was 4 months before I finally got their check and it required my screaming and threatening them before action was taken. They care about your money; not your eye care!

Dr. Tyson oversold the benefits of multi focal lenses, when I needed cataract surgery. He said I would no longer need glasses for reading & computer work. I paid $5000/eye & I still need glasses for reading & computer work. The $10,000 was a waste. Also, Dr. Tyson said he would see me for a follow up, if needed for astigmatism or other corrections. When I returned 6 months later requesting it, I was told there would be a significant charge. I do not believe Dr. Tyson is an ethical person.
