This was an emergency situation. Office staff was supportive- we really appreciate the care my husband was given. Thank you.
All the staff was wonderful. I was terrified and she was very kid and reassuring. I freak out when anyone gets near my eyes. I was a horrible patient and I apologize, but everyone was so compassionate.
I appreciated an appointment within 24 hours of my call to your office. I had an emergency situation and you fit me in. Thank you.
Very nice, professional, friendly, clean office, timely, sanitary, and well explained. Pleasant experience.
During my visit the entire staff was professional and personable. I was very pleased.
Happy to be new patient of Florida Retina Institute and Dr. James Staman.
Very thorough and insightful. Friendly and polite with a personal touch that sets great physicians apart. Genuine concern was evident immediately and I was able to get in with no wait time. I highly recommend this physician. He seemed to have a great rapport with his staff and that always makes me believe they are a family instead of an office full of employees that only tolerate each other.
Everyone was very nice and helpful.
I was very thankful the staff and doctor could work me in the same afternoon that my eye doctor’s office called. Thank you again!
I was very nervous upon arriving, but was put at ease by the friendly reassuring staff and physician.
Dear Dr. Staman and Entire Staff,
Please accept my sincerest gratitude and appreciation for your professional extension of medical expertise and kindness during my recent eye emergency.
I never dreamed that my left eye would let me down in such fashion! Thank the dear Lord for the trained and skilled hands at the Florida Retina Institute. I am forever grateful. God Bless.
Dear Dr. Jim:
Thanks for another good report on my eyes. It's been almost 12 years since the four detachments in late 2003 - 2004, and each year since I have thoroughly enjoyed hearing your "all clear" report.
As I mentioned to you yesterday at the conclusion of your examination, I honestly believe you have the finest overall physician office I have ever been in (and in my various roles with Baptist, I have been in many).
Please tell us about your experience with Dr. Staman and our staff. We appreciate your trust and confidence in us.

You see things upside down it is your brain which turns the image the right way up.
Contrary to urban myth, contact lenses cannot become "lost" behind your eye due to the structure of your eyeball.
The phrase "it's all fun and games until someone loses an eye" comes from Ancient Rome, as the only rule for their bloody wrestling matches was "no eye gouging".
The space between your eyebrows is called the Glabella.
