Sitting on the quiet banks of the Ancloate River in Tarpon Springs is St. Luke’s Cataract & Laser Institute, a tribute to the work of Dr. James Gills, the man who has performed more surgeries than any other eye surgeon in the world.
Ronald Reagan, Rev. Billy Graham, Margaret Thatcher, and more have visioted Dr. Gills. But his career doesn’t just envolve medical books, medical awards, and innovations in eye operations.
Dr Gills is the author of over fifty Christian books, which he gives out to patients and visitors. He has built 2,500 churches around the globe.
Some of you may recognize his name with the Iron Man endurance races. Dr. Gills has been a marathon runner and even ran two Iron Man races in one day. Today he just bikes many miles over to his Institute and clinics.
