Surgeon Bio

Jeffrey. Robin, M.D., has been performing laser vision correction for more than 20 years. In total, Dr. Robin has performed more than 65,000 laser vision and other refractive surgical correction procedures. Dr. Robin performed the first laser vision correction procedures in the state of Illinois and was among the first to perform LASIK in the state of Ohio.

Dr. Robin is believed to have been the first ophthalmologist in the world to personally have laser vision correction in 1992. He has traveled to more than 335 cities in more than 30 countries; many of these involved performing and teaching vision correction surgery. For much of his career, Dr. Robin has worked at university ophthalmology programs, including the University of Southern California, the University of Illinois at Chicago, Rush-Presbyterian, the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and Case Western Reserve University. He still retains a great love for teaching and research. Dr. Robin is presently Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the new University of Central Florida College of Medicine and looks forward to helping this dynamic institution develop an ophthalmology program.

Dr. Robin’s career began as a corneal transplant surgeon but then soon became focused on the development of the field of elective vision correction surgery. His devotion to this specialty was reflected in his nearly 20 year involvement with the International Society of Refractive Surgery (ISRS). He first became Secretary of this organization (which was the first professional society devoted to elective vision correction surgery), then served as its Program Chairman, President-Elect, President and Immediate Past-President. Dr. Robin relocated from Cleveland to the Orlando, Florida area so that he could continue working with ISRS as its Executive Director.

Dr. Robin has many hobbies such as photography, tennis, physical fitness/weight training and, when he has the opportunity, traveling. He reads voraciously and is a true sports fanatic. He considers himself a techno-geek and loves computers and other tech gadgets. Much of his time revolves around his wife and three children (two in college, one in high school) and their many activities/pursuits, especially involving his incredibly talented vocalist daughter and equally talented guitarist son. Dr. Robin also hopes to pursue an interest in the new field of wellness.

"My father's an optometrist, so I grew up in a world of vision correction. Becoming a corneal surgeon and then a laser vision correction surgeon seemed natural for me. Being able to improve vision and reduce dependence on glasses/contact lenses thereby increasing the quality of people’s lives is incredibly gratifying!" Dr. Jeffrey B. Robin
