Dr. Elise Kramer is a residency-trained optometrist in Miami FL who specializes in ocular health and disease, ocular surface disease and regular and specialty contact lens fitting.
Her Doctorate degree was awarded in Optometry from the Université de Montréal in 2012 where she received a grant from the Scholarship Program of the Québec Ministry of Education for short-term university studies outside of Québec. Receipt of this scholarship award is based on academic performance. In the summer of her second year, she participated in a humanitarian mission in Laayoune, Morocco where she helped hundreds of impoverished people by giving them free eye examinations and glasses corresponding as closely as possible to their prescription.
During her fourth year, she completed a specialty contact lens training seminar course at the Vision Care Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. Later, in her fourth year, she helped teach a course on slit-lamp use and ocular foreign body extraction to family medicine residents in Montreal. She then completed her internship in ocular disease at the Eye Centers of South Florida, where she worked with Dr. Dan and Dr. Hoffman and went on to complete her residency at the Miami VA Medical Center. Her time there included training at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, the nation’s top eye hospital. After her residency, Dr. Kramer became a fellow of the Scleral Lens Education Society. Dr. Kramer is a member of the American Optometric Association and a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry. She strives to assist each patient with quality and advanced eye care whether he or she requires a basic eye exam or specialized eye or vision care.
“My practice has been devoted to the restoring quality vision and ocular comfort to those patients who have been affected by keratoconus, refractive surgical complications (ex: LASIK), corneal transplant surgery, eye trauma, chronic dry eyes, corneal dystrophies and degenerations and many others. Most of my patients who have suffered from vision loss are now wearing custom made contact lenses I have designed using advanced technology. The results are outstanding.
