In addition to four years of medical school and one year of internship, every Eye M.D. spends a minimum of three years of residency (hospital-based training) in ophthalmology. During residency, Eye M.D.s receive special training in all aspects of eye care, including prevention, diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of eye conditions and diseases.
Often, an Eye M.D. spends an additional one to two years in a fellowship training in a subspecialty, that is, a specific area of eye care (for example, glaucoma or corneal surgery.) All of our doctors have completed a fellowship.
All physicians at Achieve Eye and Laser Specialists are board certified. A board certified Eye M.D. has passed a rigorous multi-part examination given by the American Board of Ophthalmology designed to assess knowledge, experience and skills.
