Dr. Edward Boshnick maintains a cutting edge practice devoted to the restoration of vision and comfort lost 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.
At the age of 40, I had LASIK surgery that resulted in nearly 20-20 vision, after wearing “coke bottle thick” glasses since the second grade. Unfortunately, after just a few years of good vision, my vision began to decline drastically, and I developed severe post-LASIK complications, including cornea thinning, severe dry eye syndrome, and astigmatism. My local ophthalmologist tried everything in his knowledge base to help me, including silicone plugs, and numerous eye medications, to no avail. My eye condition was so poor, I could not wear traditional contact lenses and regular glasses could no longer correct my vision adequately. Therefore, my only option was to wear glasses again, but at best, my vision with glasses was poor. Fortunately, I was referred from California to Dr. Edward Boshnick in Florida. I traveled across the country to seek the care of this extraordinary specialist, who prescribed scleral lenses for me. I will never forget the day I wore the sclera lenses for the first time. That morning, I was looking out our 4th floor hotel window into a pond and my husband remarked about all the fish in the pond. Unfortunately, I could not see that far down, so there were no fish in my vision. We returned to the hotel later that afternoon, wearing my sclera lenses for the first time. I looked out our hotel window and to my delight I could see fish in the pond! Dr. Boshnick’s knowledge and expertise is that of a miracle worker. Dr. Boshnick restored my vision! I will forever be grateful to this outstanding doctor.

Thank you, it is with your support that I was able to be seen by Dr. Edward Boshnick. On July 14, 2011 I had made the mistake of having PRK surgery. Since that date till this past December it has been the most challenging part of my life. I couldn't say which was worse, my pain or my vision. My quality of life was greatly compromised, I had to leave my government job for a retail minimum wage position. When I would go meet my child at her daycare, I was unable to recognize her among the other children. Now that I have been fitted with Scleral lenses by Dr. Boshnick I am able to see clearly. My pain has been reduced to a point where it's much more manageable. It feels like a miracle, for the past few years it's only in my dreams that I could see as clearly. Without exaggerating I feel like I have a second chance in life. I can't thank you enough for your support, it honestly means the world to me and my family.

Dr. Boshnick, I wanted to quickly let you know that the new lenses you prescribed are great. They have been comfortable to wear and I think the sight in the right eye is clearer. I'll be seeing you on October 20 and you can access the improved difference. (no tearing at all!!!) You do magic. Thank you so much.

The treatment you gave me is really a life changing, My family and I are so happy with the results. It is incredible for me to see so clearly again, like I miracle. I'm now working on my computer and i don't have any headache. Now i can work for hours as i used to do. I hope that my eyes can heal of the dryness and become more healthy with the time. Finally i'm very glad to find a non surgical solution with so great outcomes!!! I will never never put at risk my eyes again!

Good morning. I would like to make an appointment with you if possible. It has been a little over 1.5 years since I have been to your office for a visit and I just wanted to make a visit. I have done wonderful since I saw you last and my life has been a joy since I first made my way to see you and have you fit me for hard contacts. I can't express my gratitude for how much my life has changed for the better since getting these contacts.

I am currently using the largest of the lenses you gave me for my right eye. It's the one with the largest vault over the eye and has almost a flat rim around the edge. It was not my "go to" lens as it took a while to get used to the size......but a funny thing happened. The large lens has turned out to be fantastic for me!! Very comfortable now that I have become accustomed to it and the best part is HARDLY ANY FOGGING. I can actually wear it for 12 hours without any issues and there is no need for Celluvisc or any other extra lubricants...just the sodium chloride....plus it fits in the cartridge I currently use with my enzymatic cleaner. I am so happy with the results I am getting and wanted to thank you for changing my life in such a positive way. As you know, I was actually preparing a trip to California to have multiple surgeries on each eye with no guarantee of results and the possibility of numerous side effects. I really don't have the words to express how thankful I am. You will always have my respect and admiration.

Hi Doc, the new type of lens that you have fitted me with are doing pretty well thus far for what you say is the beginning of the process. They will take some time to get used to re the extraction and insertion given their size compared to the previous Rigid Lenses but I'm getting better at it. I just completed my Aviation Medical and the near vision chart was good but the far vision was a bit hard at the instant but thanks to some memory I got through. See you on Wednesday morning at 8 am to continue the process of getting the right fit and power to sort out my vision. I have to say thanks very much Doc for your patience over the years and I am very happy that you are my Doctor. According to your observation, I generally have a serious disposition when it comes to visits to your office because you have to understand that this part of my life is very serious to me, as flying is not just the only thing that I see myself doing in life while I am physically able, but also the means by which I provide for my family and my future. When you've grown up your entire life not wanting to do anything else or see yourself good at doing anything else, then you can appreciate how important and serious this is to me. Just continue to be the patient, professional, caring and competent doctor you have always been in doing your best to getting my vision as perfect as It can be. My condition plagues my thoughts pretty much every single day of my life and even more especially when the time comes around to complete my Aviation Medical. I also want you to know that you are well appreciated and once again thanks.

Hello Dr. Boshnick, How are you and your family doing? Hope everything is going well! I wanted to write to you to update you on my excellent vision and comfort with the lenses. For the past month I have felt very comfortable with the lenses, nothing bothers me! And also I am getting really good vision. It may have helped that now some days I am taking them off and putting them back on at the middle of the day. I also went to see Dr. Kantor like 2 weeks ago, and he told me everything was going good too, getting good vision and with my corneas really healthy. I think that Dr. Kantor wrote you an email with more detail. So, thank you very much for everything and I´ll will keep you updated on any changes or if I continue with these great news in a couple of months.

Here's the most serious dose of inspiration guys. Seriously, if this story doesn't make you rethink perspective and the importance of staying positive despite so much person and ocular troubles, nothing will. I am proud to know Keer and Dr. Edward Boshnick and am inspired daily by them. Thank you for being so amazing! So many celebs there last night celebrating being grateful, most importantly Keer.
