Jack Abrams M.D. is a board-certified, fellowship-trained ophthalmologist. In 2005, he founded Abrams Eye Institute to provide the most advanced, comprehensive ophthalmology services in Southern Nevada. Dr. Abrams believes in bringing the most superior technology to his patients.

He is the first surgeon in Nevada to perform: Laser-Assisted Cataract, KAMRA Inlay and Laser-Assisted Intacs; Dr. Abrams is the first and still only surgeon in Nevada to do Laser-Assisted Corneal Transplants.

During his 20-year career he has performed more than 15,000 surgeries and is frequently sought after by leading technology companies to utilize their latest equipment.

Abrams Eye Institute gives the gift of improved vision. Since its founding, the clinic has become Southern Nevada’s premier provider of ophthalmologic services, including LASIK surgery, cataract replacement, and treatment of all common eye disorders.

The following details Dr. Abrams’ experience, accreditation and education and approach:


“He’s a great eye doctor. He explained every detail about the problem. He answered my questions with respect. Many doctors are rushing to go to another patient and they don’t have time to explain or answer questions. Not Dr. Abrams. He is so patient and compassionate.” MARYBETH

“Dr. Abrams is a miracle worker! I had cornea transplant in Salt Lake City because of Keratoconus. When I first met Dr. Abrams I was rejecting a cornea. Dr. Abrams not only saved my cornea but he improved my eyesight to the point that I only need glasses at night to drive. Thank you Dr. Abrams and staff, you are all do wonderful!” JANEL

“Thank you Dr. Abrams. You performed cataract surgery on my mother and husband with great success. In my husband’s case, you also reshaped his eye with the laser to correct his astigmatism and inserted stents in each eye to help his glaucoma. He says he sees better now than he ever has.” KATHY

“I was (by God’s Grace) referred to Dr. Abrams. He successfully performed cataract surgery on both eyes. I went from near blindness in the infected eye and 20/200 vision in the other to 20/20 in both eyes. This doctor worked miracles for me and saved my sight.” KATHY

“I have been a patient for 11 years. Dr. Abrams has saved my vision. He is the best doctor. He treats me like family. He has the best bedside manner. My whole family loves the doctor. Anyone and everyone should be lucky to be a patient of his.” OLLISA

“I had Lasik eye surgery one week ago today with the camera inlay. I was terrified. But it was a piece of cake. Dr. Abrams does a phenomenal job. My eyesight is great. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Don’t be afraid to try it.” TAMMY

“FINALLY, there is a true SPECIALIST for our eyes here in Las Vegas. Thank You Dr. Abrams! I have only two regrets, 1. That I did not find you sooner and 2. That I have to wait two weeks to get my other eye fixed as PERFECT as you have fixed the first one!” PATTIE
