Many of my patients have told me that they are so excited that they found an eye care practice that offers them true Total Eye Care. Previously they had spent several days going to different doctors’ offices for the various treatments they needed – one office to get their glasses or contacts from their primary eye care doctor, then another office for treatment from a glaucoma specialist, a third office to check on their diabetic eye disease or macular degeneration, and yet another day spent at their facial cosmetic surgeon’s office for eyelid surgery.
Unfortunately, when you have to travel from one office to another, the communication between offices is often fragmented, your costs keeps mounting up, the trips and calls to the various offices becomes exhausting, and there is a definite lack of continuity of care.
At Frantz EyeCare, we believe that a multidisciplinary approach to eye care provides you with a higher quality of care and is certainly more convenient and cost efficient. We now have a truly multidisciplinary eye care practice with a team of board certified, fellowship trained subspecialists to better meet your growing eye care needs.
I have the privilege of heading up this incredible team of doctors. I am a fellowship trained eye surgeon specializing in Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery and active lifestyle lenses and am one of the top 5 Bladeless Laser Cataract surgeons in the country. I am also listed in Best Doctors in America and The Guide to America’s Top Ophthalmologists, and have been voted Best Cataract Surgeon in Southwest Florida by the News Press readers’ poll.
Let me introduce you to the rest of the team at Frantz EyeCare.
Dr. Jeffrey Robin joined our practice with excellent academic and clinical credentials in 2015. He was selected by Trusted LASIK Surgeons as one of our country’s top 1% of LASIK surgeons having performed over 65,000 laser vision correction procedures. He has also been honored for several years as one of the Best Doctors in America and was Past President of the International Society of Refractive Surgeons. In addition to his expertise in laser vision correction, Dr. Robin heads up our Dry Eye Center of Excellence team who work directly with you to diagnose and treat your dry eye.
Dr. George Corrent came to us from the faculty of the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. He has an MD and PhD, and received Fellowship training in Cornea and External Eye Diseases at Bascom Palmer. He specializes in the treatment and diagnosis of corneal diseases, infections of the eye and cataracts, and can treat a broad range of ocular conditions. Dr. Corrent has been named to the Castle Connolly Top Doctors list in Florida since 1996.
Glaucoma Specialist Dr. Shawn Khan joined us in 2015. He trained at the world-renowned Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. He has over a decade of experience in advanced medical, laser and surgical management of glaucoma. He also has a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Michigan.

He completed a Fellowship in Vitreoretinal Medicine and Surgery at the University of Kentucky.
We are so excited to have added Dr. William Ehrlich a fellowship trained Oculofacial and Cosmetic Surgeon. He has extensive training and experience with eyelid and facial cosmetic surgery, dermal fillers and injectables such as Restylane and Botox, true tumescent liposuction, fat grafting, natural breast augmentation and laser skin resurfacing.
After learning about our specialist you may be thinking, “but can I get a regular complete eye exam at Frantz EyeCare?” The answer is a resounding YES!
Our Primary Eye Care doctors include Board Certified Optometrists Dr. Joe Legeic, Dr. Kim Feder, Dr. Sandler Burkley, Dr. Emilio Martinez, Dr. Thy Nguyen, Dr. Roger Paez, and Dr. Dan Jefferies. These doctors are experts at routine eye exams, eyeglass and contact lens measurements and prescriptions, and post-operative care of our patients.
All of our surgeries are performed at our on-site, state-of-the-art Suncoast Surgery Center at our main office in Fort Myers. We have the most advanced equipment, specializing exclusively in eye surgeries. No other practice in Southwest Florida has access to a Bladeless Laser Cataract Refractive Suite with the VERION Image Guided System, and ORA with VerifEye technology.
For the convenience of our patients, all of our specialists work at one or more of our offices. Because we all share an Electronic Health Records system, once you complete your paperwork at our office and you’re in our system, all of your exam and surgery information becomes part of your record and is readily available to whichever doctor you see at any location. This system also allows us to keep better track of all of your prescribed eye medications to eliminate any confusion and enhance compliance and safety. All of your eye care at Frantz EyeCare is consolidated into one medical record within one practice. Just think, you won’t have to go to several different specialists at different practices, you won’t get bills from several different offices and you won’t have to wait for a consult letter to be dictated by an outside doctor.
With convenient offices in Fort Myers, Naples, Punta Gorda, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres, pretty much all residents of Southwest Florida can access the high quality, patient-focused total eye care we offer at Frantz EyeCare.
