I have had a prosthetic eye for over 40 years and dreaded the idea of surgery on my one remaining eye. Two ophthalmologists in NY told me I needed cataract surgery. I was going to have it done in NY but my new insurance required it be done in FL. I researched extensively to find the most experienced surgeon in the state of FL which led me to Dr. Ireland. After my visit I was informed that I had no indications of needing cataract surgery. Let that sink in.

I had both my eyes operated for cataract by Dr Ireland perfectly. She explained the process well before surgery. I find her very efficient and recommend her to my family and friends. St Luke’s Cataract hospital at The Villages was very professional and caring pre and post operation.

Finally decided I needed a second opinion concerning my eye sight. Recommended by my practicing eye care Doctor due to cataracts seen. She was on time, building was clean and busy. We met, she looked and surgeries scheduled right away.

Dr. Ireland is an amazing cataract surgeon! The procedure she provided me has helped me to see better than ever! Dr. Ireland and her team are exceedingly professional, thorough in their examinations, and genuinely compassionate with patients. I felt that the whole team at St. Luke’s were fully invested in helping me to see better. In fact, I am now able to read books without glasses, something I have not been able to do since I was five years old. Amazing! Thank you so much Dr. Ireland!

I was referred to Dr. Ireland as a result of emergency situation. She and her staff are extremely competent and compassionate. From the time I walked through the front door, I felt as though everyone I met was very helpful. My exam was very thorough. Dr. Ireland took the time to answer my questions and put me more at ease about my situation. Although I didn’t require surgery, Dr. Ireland referred me to a specialist who was able to see me immediately. I am very thankful!

Dear Dr Ireland and Staff – Today I had my second cataract surgery. I was treated with respect and professionally by ever person I encountered at your eye center. I was nervous Tuesday and soon learned there was nothing to fear. Everyone was amazing. Today I had the second eye done. Once again, amazing. More importantly, you have given me my life back. You have no idea the impact this has had on me. I lost my independence! I can drive and I can see everything I was missing. My family’s faces, the flowers, vivid color, how bad the lawn looks and my beautiful dogs. My dirty house, I had no idea! I can read! No words can say thank you enough for the gift of sight that you have given me, thank you for the ability to see everything I was missing. You all played a role in this process! You are all amazing! Bless you all.

Everyone at St Luke's is highly trained and professional. The appointment prior to surgery was long, but my eyes are precious and I will not trust them to anyone else.
