The Eye Guy with the Bow Tie

Dr. Rafael Trespalacios

The first surgeon in Central Florida to perform Laser-Enabled Corneal Transplant

“Wonderful experience”

“I had a wonderful experience. I was a little nervous about having my surgery, but Dr. Tres and the nurses put those fears to rest. I had a very little wait time in the waiting room and surgery was done in no time at all. I highly recommend Brevard Eye Center. I CAN SEE, I CAN SEE! Thank you much Dr. Tres and the Nurses and Staff for making my surgery a success.”
