Demand for vision and eye health services here in The Villages continues to grow, and we at Lake Eye always strive to offer the beloved people of our community quick appointment times. To that end, we have added yet another talented doctor to our staff so that we may serve patients more efficiently than ever.
We’re proud to introduce Dr. Jose Alfredo Vazquez, a Comprehensive Ophthalmologist and Fellow of the American Academy of
Ophthalmology with board certifications from the American Board of Ophthalmology and the National Board of Medical Examiners, among many other certifications and honors, both academic and professional.
Dr. Vazquez earned his doctorate from Ponce School of Medicine in Puerto Rico, and completed an internship in General Surgery at
University of Puerto Rico Affiliated Hospitals. He studied Internal Medicine at Damas Hospital, where he later served as Director of the Medical Ophthalmology section.
Dr. Vazquez also served on an Associate
Professor position with Ponce Health Sciences University. After moving to the US to complete a residency, he earned a Fellowship in Ophthalmology Research from Tulane University Medical Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Dr. Vazquez relocated to Florida, where he has remained to offer eye health and vision services to countless patients. Fluent in both English and Spanish, Dr. Vazquez joins Lake Eye to help expand our practice to meet the ever-growing demands of folks throughout The Villages.
With the country’s largest population of citizens ages 60-70 years and older, The Villages contains an unusually high concentration of vibrant, active people with eye health and vision needs, including the diagnosis of diseases like cataracts, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration, as well as treatment for dry eye, red eye, low vision and other issues.
Dr. Vazquez has numerously been named among America’s Top Ophthalmologists by the Consumer’s Research Council of America, and we feel certain that once you meet him you’ll be as delighted by his warmth and skill as we are.
Dr. Vazquez will be serving patients at all Lake Eye locations, including our brand new Sumter Summit office in Wildwood, opening in March, 2020.
