LISA: Good afternoon, Total Eye Care Center. This is Lisa. How may I help you?
MALE VOICE 1: Total Eye Center in Lake County, Florida, offers everything from routine eye exams to complicated eye surgeries. Though they offer many services, their practice philosophy for more than 25 years has had a singular focus.
FEMALE VOICE: Hi there. How are you?
DR. MICHAEL P. PENNACHIO: Everything we do here is based on is it going to benefit the patient?
MALE VOICE 1: Helping patients see better is more than just a job to the entire staff here. It is their professional passion in life.
DR. CRAIG D. FISHMAN: I'm very excited.
It's very important to me on a personal and professional level. Always has been.
DR. JEFFREY A. SHERIDAN: You can actually do things for people and improve their quality of life and improve their perception of life.
MALE VOICE 1: Doctors and staff here at Total Care Eye Center see a wide variety of patients, many of whom have been regular patients for years, or in some cases, second or third generations. They come from all around picturesque Lake County to Total Care Eye Center's three locations in Leesburg, Eustis, and Clermont.
DR. CRAIG D. FISHMAN: Our average patient is of Medicare age. Over 80% of our patients are above 65. Some of those patients come in for just well eye care, whereas others have functional problems where they, you know, they can't see to do the things they need to do.
MALE VOICE 1: One of those patients is Richard Rio, who talks about his eye opening moment, which happened just hours after he had cataract surgery.
MR. RICHARD RIO: I looked around and I saw colors that I'd never seen before. Colors become so vivid you just can't imagine. I thought I was seeing colors, but I wasn't.
MALE VOICE 1: Patients like Richard and many others are comforted by the fact that Total Care Eye Center offers it own on-site surgical center here at its Leesburg location. The advantage to the patient goes well beyond the convenience factor, which in and of itself, is a major benefit.
MR. RICHARD RIO: You don't have to go elsewhere, you know? You just--everything's done right here.
DR. MICHAEL P. PENNACHIO: The nice thing about having our own surgery center is it's dedicated exclusively for all eyes. All we do is eye surgery here.
MALE VOICE 1: For those in need of the latest in surgical eye procedures, frames, designer eyewear, or contacts, Total Care Eye Center offers it all. And it does so with what many call "the friendliest and most skilled staff in all of Florida."
MS. BARBARA VICEVICH: The staff is so knowledgeable, they almost make you feel like you're part of their family.
MR. RICHARD RIO: Dr. Pennachio, I've not met a man like him. He's just absolutely wonderful. The staff on the other side where they actually do the operation, fantastic people. They just make you feel at home. I mean, I'd like to come back, but I don't have any other surgeries.
