A warm, friendly greeting from our team. Complimentary WiFi access during your brief wait. Beverages and fresh cookies just for you. We want to exceed your expectations at every turn.
That’s why from the moment you step into our practice, you’ll notice the Collins Vision difference. That’s also why we take pride in our professional care team. With his primary focus in our Naples location, Dr. Jason Friedrichs serves our patients with a sincere approach to their vision health. “He holds the same higher standards of excellence that sets Collins Vision apart from other practices in the area, with surgical experience that has allowed us to best serve our patients,” says Dr. Michael J. Collins, our practice founder.
Moving South to Treat Southerners
From the time Dr. Collins founded his practice in 2004 to today, news of the Collins Vision team’s level of patient care spread and loyal clients referred friends and family to the office. This growth led Dr. Collins to search for a physician who shared his family values and commitment to providing exceptional care with a focus on keeping abreast of the latest technology and techniques for his second location. He found that and more in Dr. Friedrichs.
A recently transplanted midwesterner with a passion for the outdoors, Dr. Friedrichs and his family have embraced the beauty and wonder of Southwest Florida. “It was paramount to me to join an ophthalmology practice, after leaving my solo practice of 12 years, where patient care and outcomes are the highest priority,” Dr. Friedrichs says. As a former practice owner, he knows the importance of ensuring every aspect of his patients’ care is handled personally and professionally.
An Expert in Eye Care
Dr. Friedrichs’ areas of expertise include refractive surgery (for cataracts and LASIK), state-of-the-art glaucoma treatments, and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)—a delicate procedure requiring impressive skill and expertise. He also has considerable experience in comprehensive eye care, including the management of many common—and less common—eye diseases and conditions.
A board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Friedrichs earned his medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford and completed his residency at the renowned University of Iowa Department of Ophthalmology, deemed one of the best ophthalmology training centers in the country by Ophthalmology Times and U.S. News & World Report.
As an athlete, coach and photographer, Dr. Friedrichs appreciates how his vision impacts every aspect of his life and is devoted to his patients with personalized care. Both he and Dr. Collins specialize in Refractive Cataract Surgery, where the desired outcome is the removal of the cataract and a reduced dependency on glasses—with one operation. An advanced procedure that goes beyond traditional cataract surgery to deliver exceptional results, Refractive Cataract Surgery is customized to each patient’s unique vision, goals and lifestyle.
Drs. Friedrichs and Collins are refractive specialists with significant experience in customized LASIK, offering their patients the opportunity for visual freedom that comes without dependency on glasses or contacts. Supported by state-of-the-art facilities featuring unparalleled technology, the doctors provide comprehensive care for the management of and treatment for conditions and diseases to promote lifelong vision health.
Driven to Be the Best
With a goal to change the way Southwest Floridians think about their medical experiences, Collins Vision is driven to perfection. “We work to provide a positive, memorable experience to each patient and every visit,” Dr. Friedrichs says.
We want you to See the Difference in every moment—from the time you wake up each morning to when you close your eyes each night. We also believe clear vision and good eye health should be the goal of each patient who entrusts us with their most precious sense.
