Hello, my name is Dr. Omar M. Kazi. I was born and raised in the picturesque countryside of New York in the rustic town of Hyde Park, home of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. I am a graduate of the University of South Florida Honors Program in Tampa, Florida. After which, I was accepted into the Hahnemann University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

After medical school, I did a one year internship at The Reading Hospital & Medical center, in Reading Pennsylvania. I then went to Manhattan to do my residency in Ophthalmology at St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital Center, a Columbia University Hospital. During those three wonderful years, I learned my career and met my wife. Together we enjoyed all of the city’s bright and wonderful sights.

Upon completion of my residency, I began my career with a high-tech family oriented Ophthalmology practice in Bakersfield, California. However, I still desired to establish my family roots and career in Florida. The opportunity arose in 2004 with Eye Clinic & Laser Institute. What attracted me to the area was the climate, the quality and diversity of life here on the Space Coast.

I have lived in Viera for over 10 years. I am happily married and have two beautiful children. I am involved in the local community and I try to give back by providing free eye care exams to our less fortunate residents.

Among my interests are general aviation ( I have a private pilot’s license), SCUBA diving and playing golf. I thank God every day to be able to see all this natural beauty which surrounds us. This is why I chose to become an Ophthalmologist. To be able to do everything humanly possible to protect this blessed gift.
