Patient Comments (5)
Melbourne, FL |
Dr. Trespalacios is an excellent physician and a very likable person. He performed my cataract surgery as well as another procedure to decrease my eye pressure. Both were very successful. My eye pressure is lower than it's been since I was diagnosed with glaucoma and my vision is much improved.

Definitely not a people person! Made statements about what I could expect from cataract surgery and it didn't happen. Had to go in for stitches two days after original surgery to "repair a leak". Extremely bad floaters showed up shortly after surgery. Referred me to his "associate" who had a worse personality than Tres. His recommendation was surgery with a 16% CHANCE OF FAILURE, blindness! Do your homework. There are better choices available. Dr Walters(?)in Tres's contacts area is even worse
in Malabar, FL |
Just turned 78 and for the past twenty plus years I had to wear a pair of reading glasses around my neck because I couldn't read small print. A couple of months ago Dr. Tres put new lenses in both eyes and I've put away all my glasses. Things are brighter and clearer then ever. Thanks Doc!

Start with his staff - excellent team that shows caring and good inter-actions for the benefit of patient. Dr Trespalacios is always courteous and takes time with patient to explain diagnosis and prognosis - very clear and simple terms. Go visit him fist - I guarantee you will stay for treatments and follow ups.
in Rockledge, FL |
Cataract operation performed over a half year ago was a complete success. My vision is perfect after Dr. Tres implanted my premium lenses. He and his entire team made the experience a pleasure.
