Dr. Stanley Braverman



Ft. Lauderdale and Miami LASIK specialists

Welcome to Braverman Eye Center

Since 1973, the Braverman Eye Center, started by Dr. Howard Braverman, has been here to serve the eye needs of the community. A graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine, Dr. Stanley Braverman completed his residency in ophthalmology at the Duke University Eye Center before joining his brother in a private practice at the Braverman Eye Center in Hallandale Beach, Florida in 1981. He practiced together with his brother until 1998, before assuming sole ownership of the Braverman Eye Center, when his brother retired from active clinical practice. Dr. Stanley Braverman is board certified in ophthalmology, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the Cornea Society. In addition, he is among the few ophthalmologists to serve as an Assistant Clinical Professor at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, where he trains surgical residents.

Dr. Stanley Braverman was the first ophthalmologist in Broward County to use an excimer laser to perform LASIK (laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis). He was medical director of TLC, The Laser Eye Center in Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Boca Raton from 1996 until 2002 at which time he opened his own laser vision correction center, the Refractive Vision Center, at the Braverman Eye Center. As a result of the volume of laser vision correction procedures that he performs and his resultant experience Dr. Braverman has taught many other ophthalmologists how to use excimer lasers to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.


Dr. Braverman is the LASIK surgeon for many eye doctors, celebrities and professional athletes. He and his staff will listen to your needs and desires and will then formulate a Laser Vision Plan that will be individualized to maximize your results.

The Refractive Vision Center at the Braverman Eye Center is a premium South Florida, Miami and Ft. Lauderdale LASIK and Laser Vision Correction center. Dr. Braverman has done many thousands of LASIK, epi-LASIK and PRK corrective eye surgeries. Laser Vision Correction is done in our own state of the art laser surgical facility, featuring the Alcon LadarVision Excimer Laser, LadarWave Wavefront CustomCornea technology, and bladeless all laser Z LASIK. Our Laser surgical facility also features the Liebert System for separate humidity and temperature control, allowing for excellent vision results and low enhancement rates.

Unlike those laser centers that ONLY do LASIK and will persuade you to have LASIK even though it may not be the best procedure for you, we also offer other state-of-the- art methods for vision correction. We are a leader in South Florida in refractive Presbyopic Lensectomy and Cataract Surgery, teaching many other surgeons our techniques, and have done over three thousand patients using the upgraded Array, ReZoom and AcrySof ReSTOR multifocal lens implants, which allow you to have far, intermediate and near vision after cataract or lensectomy surgery. These upgraded implants allow you to be much less dependent on glasses after surgery, with the vast majority of our patients never, or rarely, wearing glasses after surgery. In fact, Gary Player, a professional golfer who is a happy ReZoom patient, says he is seeing like he used to see when he was 30 years old – without glasses. Other upgraded lens implant options are also offered, such as the Crystalens, which is a truly accommodating lens implant, and the Tecnis lens implant, which gives better night vision than any other lens implant, allowing you to drive more safely at night. This implant is a must if you do a lot of night driving.

What Do Patients Say About Dr. Stanley Braverman?

"As an optometrist, I am very critical about the surgical skills of surgeons to whom I refer my patients. When it came to my own eyes and laser vision correction, I trusted that same person, Dr. Stanley Braverman at TLC. His surgical precision and expertise corrected my vision beyond my expectations. I had enjoyed the vision contact lenses and glasses gave to me, but my laser vision correction gives me the improved quality of life that they could not." —Dr. David Rousse

"It has been one year since my LASIK surgery and I still can't believe that I'm not popping contact lenses into my eyes every morning! My quality of life has definitely changed for the better. Thank you for making it possible!" —Judith Imbasala

"There is not one single day that goes by where I don't think of the great fortune this surgery has brought to my life. I cannot help but be excited every time I see the ocean, or go swimming, or for that matter go anywhere and do anything uninhibited by glasses or contact lenses! It is like a great burden and crutch, which I depended on year after year, has been lifted. Laser Vision Correction was truly the best gift I have ever given myself." —Eric Radzwill
