    Dr. Polack is a gifted and talented eye surgeon with an incredible amount of experience which allows him to accurately assess a patient's condition and decide how it should be treated. I was diagnosed with Fuchs Dystrophy. Dr. Polack was very careful to make sure every situation was considered before undertaking a partial corneal transplant known as DSEK. My vision is now better than it has been in years. Thank you Dr. Polack!

    Very caring, professional, honest and one great surgeon. My cataracts were way past ready to be operated on. In the 4+ range of 'ripeness'. Dr Polack operated and restored my sight. I was legally blind and at my last checkup was at 20/25 combined vision. I would recommend Dr Polack and his support staff to anyone needing excellent eye care.

    It was such a pleasant surprise to get a personal phone call from Dr. Polack the evening after my surgery. Such a caring and competent physician. I highly recommend him.

    A big thank you to Dr. Polack and the staff at Ocala Eye. Dr Polack did cataract surgery on both eyes and the results are great.

    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.

    Dr. Polack's Care Philosophy

    I take a holistic approach to the treatment of patients. Many of the conditions I see are related to a number of factors including autoimmune issues, previous surgery, medications, and diet. Only by taking all of these into consideration can one fully address the patient's needs.
