Arthur Fishman M.D.

Arthur M. Fishman, M.D. is a board-certified ophthalmologist with Eye Surgery Associates. Dr. Fishman is a specialist in cataract/refractive surgery. 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 in Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Fishman served his internal medicine internship at Philadelphia's Albert Einstein Medical Center. Dr. Fishman completed his ophthalmology residency as chief resident at the New York College of Medicine in 1985. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology.

Dr. Fishman was in private practice until he joined Eye Surgery Associates in 1994. Dr. Fishman has served as Chief for the Department of Ophthalmology at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, FL and Memorial West Hospital in Pembroke Pines, FL. Dr. Fishman currently serves as Chairman of the Board at the Surgery Center of Weston in Weston, FL.

Dr. Fishman specializes in cataract and intraocular lens implantation surgery. He has performed well over 10,000 of these procedures. Dr. Fishman was a pioneer in modern small incision, no-stitch, topical anesthesia surgery with the use of only eye drops to perform the cataract procedure. In 2004, Dr. Fishman 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. Dr. Fishman's patients benefit from the ReSTOR 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.

Dr. Fishman is constantly seeking ways to make procedures for cataract removal safer, more effective and even more predictable through the use of advanced technology. He now offers Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery with the newest advances and precision of the femtosecond laser. Dr. Fishman's 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.

Dr. Fishman has been actively involved as the Principal Investigator in several key clinical research trials. His research findings have been presented to the U.S. 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.

Dr. Fishman is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Florida Society of Ophthalmology, the Miami Ophthalmological Society, and currently serves as a managing partner for Eye Surgery Associates.
