A board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Fishman serves as a Managing Partner for Eye Surgery Associates in Pembroke Pines, Florida. He specializes in cataract and intraocular lens implantation surgery and has performed well over 25,000 of these procedures.

In 2004, the doctor was selected to be one of the first ophthalmologists in the state of Florida to utilize the Crystalens accommodative intraocular lens implant to provide his patients with a solution to presbyopia or problems with reading. His patients benefit from the Alcon Panoptix and Tecnis multifocal intraocular lenses, with the ability to see at distance, intermediate, and close up without the use of spectacle correction or contact lenses.
Constantly seeking ways to make procedures for cataract removal safer, more effective and even more predictable through the use of advanced technology, Dr. Fishman offers Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery with the newest advances and precision of the femtosecond laser. His expertise, skill, and techniques interfaced with the latest technology and advanced intraocular lens implants allow patients to achieve their desired vision correction goals and resume their lifestyles in just a few days after surgery.
Academically, he attended Tulane University, graduating with honors and serving as Vice President for Finance of his undergraduate class. He received his medical degree in 1981 from Temple University School of Medicine. He served his internship in internal medicine at the Albert Einstein Medical Center, and completed his residency in ophthalmology as Chief Resident at New York Medical College in 1985.
With an unwavering commitment to his specialty, he is distinguished as a Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO). The ABO is an independent, non-profit organization responsible for certifying ophthalmologists in the United States of America.
Among his professional affiliations, Dr. Fishman is a proud member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the ISRS, the ASCRS, the Florida Society of Ophthalmology, and the Miami Ophthalmological Society.
Actively involved as the Principal Investigator in more than 40 key clinical research trials, his research findings have been presented to the United States Food and Drug Administration and have resulted in the advancement of intraocular lens implants, surgical solutions, and ocular medications. He has been invited to lecture about his clinical trial experiences and remains dedicated to the advancement of safer, more effective, and more predictable patient outcomes and to the enrichment of his profession.
