Lake Nona Ophthalmology

After graduating as the Valedictorian of his high school, Dr. Patel attended the University of Florida for his undergraduate and medical degrees. He then completed an internship in Internal medicine at Richmond University Medical Center and a three-year residency in Ophthalmology at the prestigious Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.  During his residency, Chirag had the privilege of learning under renowned leaders in the field of refractive surgery and ophthalmic plastic surgery.  He then completed a Fellowship in Medical Retina and Research at the University of Florida – Jacksonville.  Finally, Dr. Patel continued practicing and teaching residents at the University of Florida as an assistant professor of Ophthalmology. 

Ultimately, Dr. Patel founded Lake Nona Ophthalmology in 2013 as a unique, patient-first practice founded on the core principles of compassion, community, and cutting-edge care.  He has since established Lake Nona Ophthalmology as an elite and premier practice offering refractive laser cataract surgery, laser vision correction, Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS), advanced functional and cosmetic eyelid surgery, and non-invasive facial cosmetic procedures.  

Dr. Patel is board-certified and is on staff at both Advent Health and Orlando Health.  Additionally, he is an active member of American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Medical Association, New York Academy of Medicine and Florida Society of Ophthalmology.

Outside of the office, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, hiking, playing sports, and rooting for his Gators!
