Dr. Wehrly is my HERO !!! I retired after 40 yrs as a graphic artist and had grown increasing irritated at needing to have a pair of reading glasses in every room of the house - especially since wearing glasses tend to give me headaches due to sinus issues. After discussing the different lenses with Dr. Wehrly we decided the multi-focal lens would be a good choice for me. Surgery went without a hitch and now I have my eyes back ! Nice to find out my cat really is "white" and not dirty yellow !

Dr. Wehrly has impressive credentials and is very friendly and down-to-earth. He is also very professional and his staff is informed and friendly. My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Wehrly for the past 3 year since we moved to Florida. He has done 1 cataract removal for my husband and 2 for me.
