St. Luke's Cataract & Laser Institute is a premier cataract and intraocular lens practice made up of experienced and caring medical professionals. One of the world's foremost authorities on cataract surgery, Dr. James Gills, the founder and director of St. Luke's, has performed more cataract and lens implant surgeries than any other surgeon in the world. His innovations, which have helped to make cataract surgery more comfortable and more precise than ever, include no-stitch cataract surgery, no-needle anesthesia, intraocular antibiotics to prevent post-surgical infection, and intraocular anesthesia. Dr. Pit Gills works alongside his father, expertly performing cataract surgery and various refractive procedures. Today, Dr. James Gills and Dr. Pit Gills work together, continuing to offer patients the utmost in eye care. Both father and son continuously evaluate new techniques and equipment, helping to maintain St. Luke's position as one of the leading ophthalmology practices in the world.

Commitment to our Patients

St. Luke's is dedicated to maintaining a high standard of care while keeping costs as low as possible for our patients. Performing surgery at our freestanding surgery center is one way we save our patients money. Unlike many hospital-associated surgery centers, our outpatient facility fee includes all medications and supplies used in surgery. Studies have shown that this saves patients and insurance companies up to 35%.

Our practice also places a great deal of value on patient education. In addition to the information available on this website, we supply patients with printed information and videos and offer weekly eye surgery seminars.

St. Luke's Cataract & Laser Institute is pleased to be a memeber of the Tampa Bay Eyecare Network, an educational, nonprofit organization established in 1993. Members include hundreds of optometrists throughout the state of Florida. The network holds yearly medical conferences where attendees receive continuing education credits.
