FORT MYERS, FLA., June 21, 2021 — Quigley Eye Specialists, a Southwest Florida leader in the diagnosis and treatment of vision disorders, is growing and expanding into Sarasota.
The practice announced that Eye Specialists of Sarasota and Dr. Michael Lamensdorf have merged with Quigley Eye Specialists. Dr. Lamensdorf is a board certified ophthalmologist and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons who is a renowned cataract and lens replacement surgeon.
Quigley Eye Specialists has acquired nine offices during the past year, bringing the total number of offices under the Quigley Eye Specialists umbrella to 21.
In addition, Quigley Eye Specialists launched a cosmetic division last year under the direction of facial plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Prendiville, who is medical director of The Q iLASIK & Med Spa in Naples and Assuage Luxury Spa in Naples and Fort Myers..
“We are excited to continue our growth throughout Florida by inviting practices to join us that share the same core values and foundational tenants for which we pride ourselves,” said Dr. Thomas Quigley, founder of Quigley Eye Specialists. “We look forward to providing our patients with the quality care they have come to expect.
Dr. Lamensdorf will continue to see patients at the Eye Specialists office at 1428 S. Tamiami Trail in Sarasota. As a result of the merger, patients also will have access to multiple specialists at three locations in Sarasota, including Dr. Joseph Spadafora, who has more than 30 years of experience in ophthalmology and is the medical director of St. Lucy’s Eye Surgery Center, which merged with Quigley Eye Specialists earlier this year.
Existing office staff will continue to provide care with the addition of a few new patient care specialists and opticians. Various aesthetic upgrades are planned for the office as well, including an eyeglass boutique with an extensive inventory of designer frames and sunglasses.
“As demand for excellent eye care continues to increase, this merger will help us ensure patients have convenient access to the care they need. Dr. Lamensdorf is a fantastic doctor with a stellar reputation in Sarasota. Plus, our three locations in the area will help us get patients in the same day and even on a walk-in basis,” Dr. Quigley said.
