Frantz EyeCare offers the area’s only bladeless iLASIK, which combines the advanced IntraLase femtosecond laser with the VISX Star S4 excimer laser to provide patients with a procedure that is 100 percent tailor-made for you and the unique characteristics of your eyes. iLASIK offers improved safety, better vision and more precision. Ophthalmologist Jeffrey Robin, MD, joined the Frantz EyeCare team in June as a LASIK and Cornea Specialist. Dr. Robin is one of the top LASIK surgeons in the U.S. and has performed over 65,000 laser vision correction procedures during his 20 plus years in practice.
Dr. Robin practices with local cataract specialist Jonathan M. Frantz, MD, medical director of Frantz EyeCare. Dr. Frantz started his practice 20 years ago, then called Florida Eye Health, in a medical office building at Lee Memorial Hospital. He moved to his current Fort Myers location at 12731 New Brittany Blvd. in 1996. He now heads a multi-physician, multi-office practice that incorporates the latest technologies to provide patients throughout southwest Florida with the most advanced options for bladeless laser cataract surgery, bladeless iLASIK, cosmetic surgeries and comprehensive eye care. Dr. Frantz changed the practice’s name to Frantz EyeCare in the fall of 2012 to more clearly identify his practice.
Dr. Frantz is one of the top five bladeless laser cataract surgeons in the country. He introduced laser cataract surgery to southwest Florida in May 2012 and continues to embrace the latest technology for his patients by being the first surgeon in the state of Florida to offer the VERION Image Guided System, which tracks your eye from the planning stages to your actual cataract procedure.
In addition, Frantz EyeCare has a Retina Specialist Robert Sherman, MD, an Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon Stephen Laquis, MD, FACS, and a team of licensed optometrists who specialize in examination and diagnosis of eye diseases and vision conditions. In addition to testing for eyeglasses and contact lenses, the optometrists provide pre and post-operative care of surgical patients.
As an organization, Frantz EyeCare participates in several local professional and civic organizations, such as membership in six area Chambers of Commerce, the Health Management Association, the SWF Chapter of Florida Public Relations Association, and numerous networking groups.
