Professional statement

Ft. Lauderdale Eye Associates is pleased and fortunate to be able to welcome James A. Fleischman, M.D. to our team. Dr. Fleischman’s outstanding credentials and experience are only surpassed by his dedication to excellent and compassionate care for each and every patient. We are confident our patients will find his knowledge and personality a wonderful addition. Educated at Princeton University and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Dr. Fleischman completed his Fellowship in Anterior Segment and Laser Surgery at the prestigious Katzen Eye Institute in Baltimore, Maryland and was a faculty clinical instructor at both the Katzen Eye Institute and The College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey before entering into private practice. In addition to his clinical work in several prestigious settings, Dr. Fleischman patented an innovative design for an Intraocular Lens Implant used in cataract surgery, as well as doing pioneering research with the first YAG Laser in the United States for treatments after cataract surgery. He has authored several articles in peer-reviewed major ophthalmic journals, and has lectured at several eye institutes around the country. Having been an avid golfer since he was a teenager, Dr. Fleischman has been able to travel all over the world to play many world famous golf courses. However, living in South Florida since 1992 he feels fortunate to be able to care for patients as well as play golf year round.
