Dr. Edward Boshnick maintains a cutting edge practice devoted to the restoration of vision and comfort lost from LASIK damage as a result of refractive eye surgery (including LASIK and Radial Keratotomy), keratoconus, corneal transplant surgery, pellucid marginal degeneration, extreme dry eye, corneal dystrophies, corneal trauma and Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.
A few words about Dr. Edward Boshnick and his eye care practice:
Dr. Edward Boshnick maintains a cutting edge optometric practice covering all types of vision care including non-surgical vision improvement, contact and scleral lens care, children’s vision and vision rehabilitation for the partially sighted. Dr. Boshnick received his B.A. degree from the University of Miami and his Doctorate degree was awarded in Optometry from Southern College of Optometry. He then went on to serve as a Captain in the U.S. Army Medical Service Corps from where he was made chief of the Optometry clinic at the Hunter Army Airfield Hospital. Dr. Boshnick is a member of the American Optometric Association, a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, and a Fellow of the International Orthokeratology Section of the National Eye Research Foundation.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Dr. Boshnick was asked by the Department of Defense to take care of the vision needs of the entire National Guard that was stationed in Miami-Dade County. For the next 6 months following this Natural disaster, Dr. Boshnick examined and treated over 500 National Guard troops. Dr. Boshnick in 1994, was awarded the George N. Jessen award during the National Eye Research Foundation’s 39th Annual Post-Graduate Congress in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since entering Private Practice Dr. Boshnick has been located in Miami, Florida specializing in contact lens care, children’s vision, orthokeratology, vision care for the partially sighted (low vision) and people suffering from LASIK damage. Dr. Boshnick has been a clinical investigator for both the FDA and several major contact lens manufacturers for over 20 years.
Dr. Boshnick has lectured extensively and authored a number of professional articles dealing with contacts, scleral lenses and orthokeratology. At the 1st Global Keratoconus Congress held in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2007, Dr. Boshnick gave two presentations involving the use of new technologies to treat keratoconus and post-lasik ectasia. At the 2nd Global Keratoconus Congress held in Las Vegas in 2008, Dr. Boshnick gave a presentation involving the use of the Synergeyes Post-Surgical Lens for the restoration of quality vision lost due LASIK damage from refractive eye surgery (LASIK, R-K), transplanted corneas and pellucid marginal degeneration. At the 4th Annual Global Specialty Lens Conference in January, 2010, Dr. Boshnick gave a presentation on the use of scleral lenses for the treatment and restoration of vision in corneas affected by trauma, disease and surgery. In February, 2012, Dr. Boshnick gave three presentations at the San Diego Specialty Lens Symposium involving the use of specialty lenses for the treatment of keratoconus and post-surgical complications. In April, 2012, Dr. Boshnick gave a presentation before 135 eye doctors in Miami on new scleral lens technologies for the treatment of vision loss due to keratoconus, ocular trauma, ocular surface disease and refractive eye surgeries such as LASIK and Radial Keratotomy.
In recent years Dr. Boshnick has increased his services to include providing vision care to those children and adults with disabilities and others with special needs. These includes those who suffer vision loss not only from ocular disease, but who have lost vision from neurological disorders and head trauma. New technologies are here now which allow us to provide visual rehabilitation to those who have lost quality vision from these conditions. We constantly search the globe to bring the latest and most innovative technologies to our patients.
When Dr. Boshnick was asked in a recent interview about his professional goals and objectives, he responded: “My goals and the goals of my staff are to provide our patients with the highest level of service available utilizing the most current advances in technology such as retinal photography, computerized corneal topography, computerized visual field analysis and scanning laser tomography. We will provide our patients with the latest high quality ophthalmic products available including eyewear, contact lens care, and specialty vision aides for the partially sighted. Not all eyes are the same and not everyone can wear the same contact lenses or eyeglass designs. Time and care will be taken to assure our patients that the correct materials will be used for their individual needs in the setting of a private doctor’s office, not a clinic.”
The following words spoken by Robert F. Kennedy have always guided and inspired me when treating patients who have suffered lose of vision and ocular comfort:
“There are those who look at things and ask why… i dream of things that never were and ask why not?”
