Happy Patients for Nearly 20 Years

 “We were newcomers to the area and chose Lake Eye because we’d heard they had an excellent reputation. We started seeing Dr. Vocci for our general eye exams and we love him – he’s such a kind, caring person and a consummate professional. He made us feel comfortable from the very first visit. We’ve been patients for almost 20 years now. Dr. Vocci discovered a tiny hemorrhage in Gerry’s eye caused by macular degeneration she had no idea had happened, and he got her in to see a retina specialist and it’s completely under control now. Who knows what might have happened if Dr. Vocci hadn’t caught it in time!

“Since then, we’ve seen Dr. Wehrly for cataract surgery and both had great outcomes. He’s an outstanding physician and the staff was helpful and caring every step of the way.

“I also saw Dr. Terpstra for blepharoplasty, and again, had excellent results. Surgery and recovery were quick and the results were outstanding. The whole practice is truly a class act and we have and will continue to recommend them to our friends.”

Procedure: Glaucoma Treatment


Being an Army wife for 30 years, I've been to my share of doctors. While the care was good, I felt like a number as they rushed me through the system. Not with Dr. Vocci. He never rushes through an appointment. He even checks on me after the fact if I had a problem. I've been going to Dr. Vocci for over 10 years and I never had a disappointing experience.

Whenever I give him a call he works me right in. He never fails to see me. He is a super man -- the most friendly person that I've ever met. He is very caring and nice. He'll make you calm and always put you at ease. He'll take the time to get to know you, which is wonderful. I tell newcomers to The Villages about Dr. Vocci all the time.

Dr. Vocci should have been in the Army, because he's a good trooper!
