Love my Lasik!! Even tho at my age have to wear readers, being able to see immediately when I wake up without grabbing glasses is the best. Procedure was quick and I felt very safe throughout the entire experience!! Would definitely recommend Dr. Charles!

Had cataract surgery this past summer. Before the surgery I could see 20/30 in my left eye and could also read books, newspapers etc. My right eye vision was blurry for distance and closeup. After the surgery I now need reading glasses for both and my eyesight in my right eye is no better. Dr Charles says that there is nothing else to be done. I wish I had never let him touch my eyes

I had cataract surgery earlier this year, and the results with my multi focal lenses has changed my life. The care I received from Dr. Charles and his assistants was top notch. Also the care I received at the surgery center in Summerfield was so thorough and I especially appreciated the patience they had with my fears and anxiety. I had such a great experience that I would recommend Mid Florida eye to anyone I meet.. Thank you Dr. Charles
