These multifocal lens implants can help free people with cataracts from glasses

Dr. James Tammaro is changing the way medical professionals deal with cataracts. The newest ocular surgeon at Mills Eye & Facial Surgery in Pensacola, Tammaro specializes in the use of multifocal lens implants in cataract surgery. Tammaro has performed more than 20,000 cataract surgeries in his career and comes to Pensacola as a recognized expert in this field. Cataract surgery is the replacement of the eye’s natural lens with a clear synthetic one and is the most common — and statistically most successful — surgery in the country. Cataract surgery is done when the eye’s natural lens becomes cloudy, preventing clear vision. Once the natural lens is removed, a new lens must be implanted for the eye to see well.

Cataract Surgery

Dr. Mills is considered a top ophthalmologist for cataract surgery.  This common condition causes vision to become increasingly blurred, cloudy, and distorted.  During micro-incision cataract surgery, your cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens designed and intended to restore crisp, clear vision.  Mills Eye + Facial Surgery offers a selection of popular "Premium" intraocular lenses, including Symfony®, TECNIS® multifocal, Crystalens®, ReStor®, and many of these have versions designed to correct astigmatism.  These "Premium" lens implants are designed to reduce, and in many cases eliminate, the need for glasses following surgery.  Click the button below to learn more about cataracts.

Patient Testimonials

I want to thank you and all of your assistants for the very good job you did of reducing the puffiness under my eyes. I am very pleased with the results. Thank you again to you and your staff for all your good work. Sincerely,
-Walter Poe

I had a wonderful experience at your facility; the exams were comprehensive and thorough. I enjoyed my time in the office, and everyone was kind and very professional.
- Kathy T.

I just wanted to let everyone know what a great experience my husband and I had at Dr. Mills office. Everyone from the front desk to the doctors assistant treated us with kindness and professionalism. Everybody really cares about you and your needs. If and when the time comes for me to have any procedure, I will definitely come to Dr. Mills.
- The Thweatts

I’ve experienced exceptional care, concern and improvement with Dr. Mills.  For years I suffered with severe eyelid inflammation caused by dry eye syndrome, excessive tearing, oil gland deterioration and allergies.  Prior to visiting this office, several ophthalmologists told me there was nothing that would help.  Dr. Mills and his staff are wonderful.  After careful diagnosis and explanation, he and his staff performed a LIPIFLOW procedure and placed me on an eyelid care program that has significantly improved my quality of life.  I thoroughly enjoyed my appointments; the staff is phenomenal.
-Debbie B.

From the beginning when I started to come see Dr. Mills, from the front desk, his technicians, and the seeing Dr. Mills himself, everything has been so professional and excellent. Everyone is so courteous and nice. Even the technicians at the surgery center were so very kind and professional.
-David Shelby
