Meet Jeffrey L. Zimm M.D.


Dr. Zimm is the medical director and founder of All Saints Eye Center, he started the practice years ago with the vision of bringing state of the art, high tech, advanced eye care to southwest Florida.  With 27 years of catholic education, he felt compelled to name the practice "All Saints Eye Center."  Beginning as a new physician to the area without any local connections or support was a challenge, however, his practice grew rapidly due to hard work and a commitment to his patients.  


Accommodating the patient demand and growth of the area, he quickly added three additional office locations and several other physicians to provide his patients with convenient access to a broad range of ophthalmologic specialties and dermatology services.  In addition, Dr. Zimm opened Doctors Outpatient Surgery Center to provide his patients with an excellent surgical experience.  Despite the growth and success of this endeavor, Dr. Zimm has not forgotten the core principles of taking care of patients.  His practice philosophy can be derived from a statement his father, a surgeon himself used to tell him “Practice good medicine and the rest will follow.”

See What Our Patients Are Saying

“As an avid fisherman, golfer and building contractor I rely on my eyes a lot. Dr. Zimm helped correct my long distance vision to the point that I no longer have to strain my eyes to see the fish or watch the golf ball. They also fitted me for the right glasses to wear driving vs. out on the boat and golf course. Major improvement in quality of living!!!”


“I went for my eye exam at All Saint's and could not have been more pleased. Pia was friendly,professional, and patient with me. I did not feel rushed like I did at my last eye dr. Dr. Donaghy wasequally relaxed and through. Highly recommend!”

Catie Hart

“Just had LASIK here. The first appointment took a while, but that's because they did a lot of testing. Theyhad me scheduled the next week and they did the surgery within about 1 hour. Dr. Zimm was very nice,chill, and laid-back, which put me at eas. I couldn't get one of my eyes to cooperate, but he stuck with itand helped coach me through not moving it during the surgery.”
