Frantz EyeCare Gives Back, Performs a Day of Free Cataract Procedures

Published on October 5, 2016

Fort Myers, FL – October 3, 2016   As the holiday season approaches, the spirit of giving and gratitude takes center stage. Giving the gift of sight to individuals who need it but can’t afford it might be the most generous act a cataract surgeon could perform. And that’s just what Jonathan Frantz, MD, FACS, medical director of Frantz EyeCare, and his team of vision specialists plan to do this November.

In partnership with Mission Cataract USA, Frantz EyeCare will host Day of Giving Back on Friday, November 11, 2016. On this day, qualified candidates will receive FREE cataract surgery.

Area optometrists have been asked to refer qualified patients, who are struggling with the onset of cataracts. Pending a comprehensive eye screening, these patients will benefit from free cataract procedures, performed by a Frantz EyeCare Surgeon on the Day of Giving Back.

“Participating in this event is such a privilege,” said Dr. Frantz. “Being a part of the life-changing procedures for these deserving patients is truly an honor.”

Mission Cataract USA began in 1991 when Frederick Richburg, M.D., medical director of Valley Eye Institute in Fresno, CA offered free cataract surgery one Saturday in May to patients of all ages who needed surgery but had no means to pay. In 1993, the program expanded nationwide and today, ophthalmologists across the nation participate.    

Dr. Jonathan Frantz established what is today Frantz EyeCare in 1994. Dr. Frantz introduced Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery to Southwest Florida in 2012 and is now the number one laser cataract surgeon in Florida and among the top five in the United States. He is also named in the Guide to America’s Top Ophthalmologists and Best Doctors in America.
