Dr. Kligman is a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship-trained cornea, LASIK and cataract surgery specialist. Throughout his training, Brad Kligman, M.D. has been extensively involved in research, publishing over 20 peer-reviewed articles, textbook chapters and abstracts. He has presented his research at both national and international conferences on topics ranging from ocular tumors, to corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) and corneal transplant techniques. It was while observing cataract surgery in his third year of medical school that he realized the restoration of sight through intricate and precise microsurgery was the career that he wanted to pursue. Outside of work, Dr. Kligman enjoys photography, tennis, golf, and cycling. He loves to cook and travel with his wife, who also grew up on Long Island. He is a lifelong fan of the Mets, Jets, Islanders and Knicks.
