    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Highly recommend Dr. Sibley

I have known Dr. Sibley for years, and I have total faith in him. He did my cataract surgery 10 years ago. He is a very caring, compassionate man.

Amazing

Dr. Sibley performed cataract surgery in both eyes last year (2014) and put in Crystal Lenses. To me the procedure and result were nothing short of miraculous. I recovered beautifully, my sight is restored at almost 20/20, and for the first time in over 50 years I am glasses free. I found Dr. Sibley and his staff courteous, professional, and informative. I always felt he answered all my questions and seemed to have time for me. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Long Wait, Poor Manner, and Wrong Diagnosis

As other reviewers have stated, this Doctor keeps you waiting, does not have time to explain his findings (instead, barks at his nurse to hand you a bunch of brochures on various conditions) - and is not a good diagnostician. His manner is horrible - obnoxious singing that turns to derogatory remarks about how you care for yourself - and then uncompassionate matter-of-fact diagnoses of serious conditions (which did not actually exist in my case). Luckily, he referred me to a qualified retinal specialist, who contradicted his findings and reassured me that my eyes were in good shape. Not sure if he is looking to perform unnecessary procedures for profit - or is simply incompetent. Look elsewhere.

Cannot recommend

Dr. Sibley and his staff at the Florida Eye Center are all very nice people. However, five months after my cataract surgery I am just now able to see at a normal level out of my left eye. The short story is that after my first visit I had some reservations about his diagnosis and the competence of some of his staff and got a second opinion. The doctor giving the second was not overly enthusiastic, but concluded that Dr. Sibley was a competent surgeon. Setting aside my reservations, I therefore went ahead with left eye exams and initial measurements and the first eye operation, At the conclusion of the operation, when I came out of anesthesia, Dr. Sibley said that he had been required to put stitches in my eye due to the fact that he had made too large an incision. Consequently, my eyeball was abnormally swollen. In short, weeks passed and I remained essentially blind in my left eye. After five follow up visits with little progress, Dr. Sibley asked that I see a Retina Specialist, who found nothing wrong with my retina. Subsequent to that visit I was simply dropped by the Florida Eye Center. I heard nothing from them as the weeks passed. The vision in my left eye remained cloudy. Finally I insisted that something be done. Subsequently, the Center referred me to a Corneal Specialist whose exam indicated that I need the Corina scraped, as it had sever irregularities, something Dr. Sibley had mentioned but had not prescribed and which apparently should have been done prior to the initial measurements. The Corneal Specialist performed this procedure and finally my vision has been mostly restored. Lastly, had I had it to do over again, I would probably not have chosen the Crystalline Lens which is expensive and has not, in my opinion, lived up to his billing as provided by the Center. According to the Corneal Specialist it did not completely correct my astigmatism as was indicated it would do on the Florida Eye Center handout. Therefore, regrettably, I cannot recommend the Florida Eye Center as a place to have Cataract Surgery performed and would seek help elsewhere.
