A Friendly Team Making Eye Care Easy


Cori McDaniels

I have always had a great experience here. I was referred due to an eyelid issue and since I have rosacea, but on my exam they found my Optic nerves were elevated . Dr Mayes is very thorough with the exams and took the time to explain everything to me. I tend to be more on the anxious side and after reading google I was pretty freaked out- but he put my mind at ease and made sure I knew exactly what the finding meant. The staff is always very friendly and helpful as well.

Questions were asked and answered and there was very little room for miscommunication. I would definitely recommend Mills Eye + Facial Surgery to my friends and family.

Dry Eye Treatment

Symptoms of dry eyes or blepharitis like gritty, burning, or stinging eyes can complicate daily tasks. Dry eye syndrome can undermine the surgical outcomes of cataract surgery. At our on-site Dry Eye Clinic, we feature Oasis Dry Eye products, as well as surgical treatments.

We use the latest technology to diagnose and treat this condition at the source. By optimizing the ocular surface before the procedure, our ophthalmologist can enhance your experience throughout cataract removal.

Recently, we invested in the LipiFlow® system, which gently and effectively treats dry eyes and other ocular surface disorders. We are one of the first practices in Florida to offer this technology, and we invite you to come in for lasting relief.
