Dr. Albert G. Caruana Jr. is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in the medical and surgical diseases of the anterior segment of the eye. Dr. Caruana is fellowship trained in the area of corneal disease, cataract surgery, refractive surgery and external diseases of the eye.
Dr. Caruana graduated Magna Cum Laude from Duke University with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. He completed his medical training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas. During medical school, Dr. Caruana discovered his interest in ophthalmology while assisting with treatment of severe eye injuries while rotating on the trauma service at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Driven to pursue a career in ophthalmology, Dr. Caruana completed ophthalmology residency at Maryland General Hospital in the University of Maryland Medical System in Baltimore. He served as chief resident in his final year of residency. His interest in cataract surgery and love for surgical procedures capable of restoring and improving sight led him to return to U.T. Southwestern Medical Center to complete a fellowship in Cornea, Refractive Surgery, and External Disease of the Eye under Dr. James McCulley.
Born and raised in South Florida, Dr. Caruana returned to his hometown after fellowship to practice at Cleveland Clinic Florida's Department of Ophthalmology in Weston, Florida. He built a successful practice at the Cleveland Clinic, where he served as Department Chair and Center Director of Ophthalmology. Dr. Caruana was honored to join the excellent team at Eye Surgery Associates in 2014.
As a member of Eye Surgery Associates, Dr. Caruana continues to offer compassionate and quality care for his patients. He specializes in cataract surgery, specialty lens implants (including the latest in multifocal, toric, and accommodative lenses), laser refractive surgery (LASIK/PRK), corneal surgery (including DSEK), and external disease of the eye. Dr. Caruana is pleased to offer surgical options to both improve the vision of his patients and reduce the need for glasses for conditions of the eye such as cataracts, myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), presbyopia (age-related loss of near vision), or astigmatism.
Dr. Caruana is a member of professional societies including the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the American College of Surgeons.
Dr. Caruana is happily married and lives in Cooper City. He loves to travel and in his free time he pursues numerous activities including physical training/fitness, reading, exploring technology, and spending time with his three dogs.
