Great Ophthalmology Resources  Available Close To Home At The  Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute

The Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute offers specialized eyecare services for the entire family. The list of services provided by the institute — which has offices in Wellington, Boynton Beach and Boca Raton — includes just about every possible ophthalmological service, diagnosis and treatment.

The Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute offers a full range of comprehensive ophthalmological care, from routine eye exams to advanced surgical procedures. Services include cataract surgery, cornea surgery, diabetic retinopathy, dry eye, eyelid tumors, eyelid conditions, pediatric and adult strabismus, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and detached and torn retina treatments, along with general eye care.

At the Wellington office, which opened in 2015, Dr. Jason Gorscak specializes in cataract reflective surgery, medical glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration screening. Dr. Randy Katz treats advanced retinal disease, while Dr. Lee Friedman is the pediatric and adult strabismus specialist.

While the range of services provided by the Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute runs the gamut of eyecare needs, some eyecare issues are more common than others.

“As a comprehensive ophthalmologist, I see a wide range of pathology,” Gorscak said. “I see mostly cataracts and glaucoma, as well as diabetics, who are routinely screened for diabetic retinopathy.”

While diagnosing an issue or a problem is always the primary mission, the staff at the Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute also feel that it is important to create a positive and warm environment for every patient.

“Our staff always strives to create a friendly and relaxing atmosphere where patients can be comfortable,” Gorscak said.

While the institute works in a competitive industry, there are few other outlets, if any, that provide such an array of services at such a high standard of professional excellence.

“The Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute is a multispecialty practice that covers a very wide range of ophthalmic pathology,” Gorscak said. “There are not many other ophthalmology practices in South Florida that do that.”

The institute’s doctors include some of the most experienced experts in the field, and residents of the Wellington area are fortunate to have access to such high-quality, one-stop shopping for eyecare services, procedures and treatments.

Originally from New Jersey, Dr. Jason Gorscak attended Johns Hopkins University and then obtained his medical degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine.
