At New Vision Surgical Center, we have invested in the most advanced surgical technology available to offer the highest quality of care. Our Center is licensed by the State of Florida and accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC), with Medicare Deemed Status. AAAHC This certification means that we have met nationally recognized standards for quality of care.

The Center is devoted entirely to ophthalmology. Our experienced surgeons, nurse anesthetists, registered nurses, and surgical ophthalmic technicians have worked together for well over a decade. It takes teamwork to perform our mission of providing world-class eye care. We have a well-trained, efficient staff, with their main focus on patient safety and patient satisfaction. We provide our patients with the total surgical experience, beginning with the surgical consultation, pre-operative evaluation, and ending with their surgery.

Transparency in Healthcare

The Agency for Healthcare Administration would like all Floridians to have easy access to meaningful cost quality information. Therefore, in accordance with Rule 59A-5.032, Florida Administrative Code, please find access to price transparency for surgical services and patient billing information below.

In addition, the facility is required to let you know that you may or may not pay less for the services at another facility or in another healthcare setting. However, the surgeon that scheduled your procedure at this facility will not be on the medical staff of other facilities or healthcare settings.
