Thanks for your trust, Southwest Florida! Dr. Michael Collins, founder of Collins Vision and fellowship-trained cataract specialist, is proud to have been awarded first place in the “Best Cataract Surgeon” category of the News-Press “Best of the Best” contest for 2021! What an honor!

He was already “best” in the hearts and minds of the Collins Vision family, but it’s nice to know the community at large agrees!

“I am humbled by the goodwill and trust associated with this recognition. It is a blessing to be honored for something I truly love doing and feel passionate about. Here’s to many more years of helping Southwest Florida See the Difference with the vision they deserve!” – Michael J. Collins, MD

What Does it Mean to be the “Best”?

Dr. Michael Collins wins Best Cataract Surgeon in Fort Myers in News-Press 2021 Best of the Best contest

The News-Press “Best of the Best” is a Community Choice Awards initiative. That means News- Press readers (regular people and members of the community!) are who vote on these awards. We love this grassroots approach that gives a true and unbiased reflection of who Southwest Floridians trust for things like dining, entertainment, shopping and, in the case of Dr. Collins’ award, healthcare.

That Dr. Collins received the first place award in the category of Cataract Surgeon is just icing on the cake around here. Why? Because “best” is what we go for every day. We strive to be the best because being “good” is not good enough!

From the moment you walk through the doors at our Fort Myers or Naples office for your first visit to your final post-op visit after cataract surgery, and every moment in between, we seek to provide an experience that leaves you delighted, inspired and satisfied at every turn.
