Dr. Cunningham has been great! When my injury first happened I was directed to Florida Retina late in the evening. Dr. Cunningham not only stayed way past closing to make sure he could see me, he also stayed and performed my surgery right away. Since that first meeting Dr. Cunningham has always been great and has helped me through my recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Cunningham to all of my friends and family.

As a Professional Photographer for 34 years, my eyesight is extremely important. When my eyesight became compromised, it was very unnerving. Dr. Cunningham guided my wife and me step by step through each procedure as he worked with determination to restore my eyesight. Besides being an amazing doctor and surgeon, he is also an incredibly compassionate person! I have recommended Dr. Cunningham to family, friends and clients. Ihighly reccommend him to you too!

If you are looking for a knowledgeable doctor who inspires confidence, is personable, and genuinely cares about his patients, then Doctor Cunningham is for you. It can be bit worrying having to see a doctor for eye trouble, but Doctor Cunningham puts you at ease as soon as he walks in the door, with his friendly demeanor, and confident manner. He does a thorough exam, and thoroughly explains his diagnosis, what to do, and what to expect. He's also respectful and patient. He's a real gem.

I began seeing Dr. Cunningham after a supposedly much more experienced retina doctor ruined my cornea trying to perform office procedures. Dr. Cunningham performed 3 surgical operations trying to repair my detached retina. In the end, it was only partially successful due to original damage from botched office procedures.... would have been more successful had I gone to Dr. Cunningham originally. I highly recommend Dr. Cunningham as his experience and ability is superb.
