We Will Be the Difference so Southwest Florida can See the Difference
We are committed to serving the communities of Southwest Florida in meaningful ways. When Collins Vision founder Dr. Michael J. Collins found out that one of the United Way’s partner agencies, Florida Lions Eye Clinic, had a backlog of underserved individuals needing cataract surgery, he didn’t hesitate to step up.
Collins Vision has always enjoyed a strong alliance with United Way and is using this relationship to help individuals in need of some additional support at this time.
“We tell our patients that we can’t wait for them to See the Difference, and with this partnership, we are able to Be the Difference our community needs at this time. For seniors who have been living with reduced vision, cataract surgery is life-changing! We firmly believe restored vision should be accessible to everyone, so it is our honor to help individuals who do not have medical insurance or a way to pay for cataract surgery.” – Michael J. Collins, MD
Our newest team member, eye surgeon Dr. Jason Friedrichs, shares Dr. Collins’ philosophy of caring for every patient with sincerity and compassion. He’s very excited to step in and perform these cataract procedures.
“I am so impressed by everything Collins Vision stands for and the culture of giving back that Dr. Collins has created over the years. It’s an honor to be such an integral part of this much-needed and meaningful service to the community.” – Jason Friedrichs, MD
With the help of practices like ours, the Florida Lions Eye Clinic has helped over 5,000 individuals at no cost to them. In addition, over 300 eye surgeries have been performed in the clinic, and hundreds more referred to outside surgery centers like Collins Vision, for medical care, prescription drugs, surgeries and glasses for individuals in need.
See the Difference with the Vision You Deserve
At Collins Vision, we focus a great deal of our practice on the diagnosis and treatment of cataracts. As a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship-trained cataract and refractive specialist, Dr. Collins loves talking to patients about cataract surgery and all the ways today’s advanced cataract surgery options can help them live out the rest of their lives with the vision they deserve.
If cataract surgery is something on the horizon for you or someone you love, we’d be honored to meet you and partner with you on your journey to having your vision restored. Our goal is to create a positive, memorable experience for you every time we have the opportunity to serve you. We are proud to be Southwest Florida’s leading full-service eye care practice since 2004, with locations in Fort Myers and Naples.
