Ft. Lauderdale Eye Associates: Fort Lauderdale’s Leading Eye Doctors

We are a full-service ophthalmology and optometric practice where listening to patient concerns and discussing all treatment options are our priority. We serve our neighbors in Fort Lauderdale, Oakland Park, Pompano Beach, and Boca Raton.

Our services include routine eye exams, dry eye treatment, and laser eye surgery. We also carry a large selection of fashionable eyewear and are able to cut and edge your prescription lenses right on the premises.

Our state of the art technology makes even the most difficult cases easier to diagnose. For our patient’s convenience, we offer some prescription eye drops in our eye care pharmacy. Often these are at considerable savings from normal retail pharmacies.

Multiple languages are spoken in office, including Spanish, Creole, English, Portuguese, and French. Best of all, we are just minutes away from Boca Raton and Pompano Beach.

We have three board certified ophthalmologists and a board certified optometric physician.

What Our Patients Have to Say

I've had to wear glasses and then contact lenses all my life, starting when I was 13. Now I am 76 so I consider myself well qualified to rate eye doctors, opthalmologist, etc... And I am happy to be able to say that my current opthamologist, George Fournier, and his associates are top notch. From the front desk to the entire staff, everything is handled very professionally. Under Covid the office carefully observes all precautions, limiting access to waiting room, taking patient's temperature upon arrival, etc... I was particularly impressed with Carla Tiche, the optometrist who conducted eye exams and specializes in contact lenses. After a lengthy exam, she determined that I was a good candidate for the new multifocal lenses. I didn't even know such things existed and now I am wearing them and seeeing better than ever. Thank you, Drs. Fournier and Tiche.

Unlike manual cataract surgery that requires a surgeon to make small incisions or phacoemulsification to begin the process of removing the old, clouded lens. While this step is crucial to removing the cataract and has been the standard practice for cataract surgery, the latest step in cataract surgery is to utilize laser-assisted surgery.

Laser cataract surgery provides your cataract surgeon greater access to removing the old cataract, which often means better results and a safer procedure overall.

  • Greater accuracy at IOL placement
  • Significantly reduces the need to reposition the IOL
  • Better visual outcomes
  • Manual Incisions have a higher chance of leakage (Can require multiple sutures to close.)
  • Laser cataract surgery breaks up the cataract into smaller pieces for a reduced risk of burning or visual distortion.
  • Laser Cataract Surgery relies on accurate measurements of the cornea, which is essential when correcting astigmatism.

If you are among the 85 million Baby Boomers in the United States, you've probably noticed your eyes have changed. Most notably, presbyopia - the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability - usually becomes a problem in our 40's, requiring new vision correction solutions.

Fortunately, LASIK or laser vision correction has improved the vision of countless individuals from poor, blurry vision to perfect vision 24/7.

If you're considering LASIK or laser vision correction in Ft. Lauderdale, visit our practice for a consultation with one of our eye doctors.

Your local eye doctor has specialized equipment and training to provide effective treatment for the majority of eye emergencies.
