Mukesh C. Aggarwal, MD founded the Eye Clinic and Laser Institute in 1980. Dr. Aggarwal is a Board Certified member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He specializes in general ophthalmology as well as cataract, Lasik, and glaucoma surgery. He has a special interest in medical retina treatments for diabetes and macular degeneration.

My medical training includes graduating from the Institute of Medical Science and then serving a one year rotating internship at Philadelphia Hospital. I then completed a two year internal medicine residency and three years of residency in ophthalmology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. I am a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and a member of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. I continue my medical education each year through course work and seminars. This is a great deal of hard work, but worth all of the effort to be able to provide to my patients the latest technology in the eye care field!

Upon completion of resident training in the latest technology, I relocated to Merritt Island where I began my practice in 1980. My initial attraction to this area was the quality of life the community offered. Nearly 30 years later I am still a proud resident. I have raised two bright and beautiful girls and we share a similar passion – giving back to others. With the support of our extended family here in Brevard county, we are able to give back to others not only locally but also throughout the country.

Whenever I receive the opportunity I enjoy traveling abroad and offering my services in Charitable Medical Missions. In my free time with my family, I enjoy playing a friendly game of tennis with my girls. (But I think they usually let me win!) As often as we can, the entire family enjoys snow skiing and traveling throughout the United States. However, no matter where we go, it’s always best to come home.

Care Philosophy

"I am pleased that you are taking the time to choose an ophthalmologist that will best meet your needs. I firmly believe that the key to success is to provide each and every patient with the utmost respect and care. After all, as a patient you become a member of the Eye Clinic and Laser Institute family. Being an ophthalmologist allows me to care for our most precious gift...sight."
