Dr. Soscia and I first met when I had Lasik performed by him 18 years ago. I still have great vision and won't let anyone else perform any eye surgery on me other than him if needed. His care and attention to providing answers to your questions is unmatched in my opinion, going above and beyond to make sure one has a complete understanding of "all" your options in detail before anything needs to be done. Highly recommend to anyone.

I had been diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes more than a year ago. I was told that I did not have to do anything at that time, but in awhile I would begin to notice my vision deteriorating. When that point came I made an appointment with Dr. William Soscia at the Center For Sight in Sarasota. The examination revealed that I had reached the point where the cataracts needed to be removed. I scheduled the basic surgery for my right eye about 2 weeks after the exam, and the left eye the week after that. The surgery itself only took a few minutes, and I left the surgery center right after the surgery was completed. I was able to see clearly with the right eye within minutes after the first surgery. For the first time in decades I had clear distance vision without glasses or contacts. With the left eye surgery it took a few hours after the surgery before the vision cleared completely and I was able to see clearly from that eye as well. I could not be happier with the results.

I had been putting off cataract surgery and finally couldn't stand it anymore. So I began researching surgeons and was immediately impressed with Dr. William Soscia's credentials and very favorabole reviews. I met with him and long story short, he treated both my eyes with outstanding results. I strongly reccomend him for your cataract surgery.

I had both cataracts removed and lenses put in. My experience was magnificent. The reception and registration staff were friendly and professional and above all efficient. The surgery personnel (from the nurse who took me back , made sure of my identity and procedure to Dr. Soscia and final discharge instructions after the lens implant) were efficient, kind, professional and very well trained. The entire procedure was done by a well oiled, caring team of professional like I have not seen in a long time. I am retired health care provider and know well trained and happy employees when I see them.
