Program Description
We are a tertiary care referral center for ocular disease with 6 locations throughout south-east Florida. In addition we have a laser vision correction center and a 2 ambulatory surgical centers. The offices are fully equipped including Humphery visual field, pachymeters, tonopens, OCT, ultrasonography and fundus photography.

This medical/surgical rotation will expose students to a wide variety of experiences in eye care and ophthalmic surgery.  Educational experience includes daily patient care consisting of diagnostic workups and assisting staff physicians.  Students are also scheduled to follow each of our staff doctors to learn diagnostic and prescribing philosophies.  During the rotation, students will observe surgery, including cataract and laser vision correction, as well as in-office procedures such as pterygium excision, chalazion removal, and minor laser procedures.  Students will be exposed to the advanced practice of optometry within a medical setting.  In addition to clinical training, students participate in weekly seminars on various topics and the opportunity to share knowledge with students from other colleges of optometry.

The physicians at Aran Eye Associates have been committed to optometric education since inception and continue to provide this great opportunity.

Please feel free to contact Dr. Adam Stelzer with any questions you may have regarding this rotation.
