“Excellent staff and Dr Ackerman was very pleasant and informative. This was my first visit to this office and was very pleased. Dr Ackerman took his time and explained the results of my eye exam and also told me all about cataract surgery that I plan to have.
All in all, I was very pleased!”

Jeanne Galasso

“I had cataract removal surgery at Advanced Eye Center. Before my procedure, Dr. Ackerman patiently answered all my questions, presented me with all my options, and assisted me in choosing what I felt would work best me. The day after surgery, I had no pain whatsoever and was genuinely amazed by how good my vision was. By then, I could already read tiny fonts and other things around the house that I hadn’t seen in years! The entire staff at Advanced Eye Center were absolutely wonderful, and I’m so glad I chose them. Their efficiency made what could have easily been a daunting process a breeze. I can recommend them without reservation.”

Barbara Golden Thurmond

“I was nervous about getting Lasik for years. I was referred to this office and it was literally the best decision I’ve made. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. Usually when you go to appointment to see doctors, your wait times are extremely long. This was not the case at this office. I waited no more than five minutes for every appointment that I had. The day of my procedure was a nervous one. But thanks to the staff, I was in and out of my procedure in no time. I’m happy to say after over 10 years of wearing glasses, I am now glasses free and my vision is better than ever. If you are thinking about getting Lasik, I would seriously consider going to Advanced eye center in Gainesville. You won’t regret it.”
