Patient and caregiver education has been a key component of the St. Luke’s philosophy since Dr. James Gills first began his practice in 1968. The doctors at St. Luke’s use the latest techniques and technology in their care of patients and we strive to ensure that each patient is directly involved in their treatment plan and aware of potential challenges, successes and outcome possibilities. In addition prevention and early detection of eye, hearing and skin conditions are often directly correlated to the effectiveness of treatment. For these reasons St. Luke’s holds regular educational events to the public.
Events are held onsite at the various St. Luke’s locations – see descriptions for dates, times and locations. A light lunch is served. All sessions are offered at no cost. Make your reservation using the RSVP button.
St. Luke’s at The Villages is proud to offer special educational events on the health issues that impact your life.
Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgical procedure in the world. Femtosecond-assisted surgery uses laser technology to provide additional precision and safety to the procedure. In this session, you’ll learn the benefits of Femtosecond-laser assisted cataract surgery and how it can help you. YAG laser surgery will also be discussed. The session will be presented by John Gooch, MD. The doctor will be available for questions during the one-hour session.
