About Dr. Kai-Lewis

Dr. Emmanuel Kai-Lewis completed medical school at Howard University College of Medicine in Washington, D.C. and a residency at West Virginia University Eye Institute. He went on to pursue additional training and completed a Cornea Fellowship at the Prestigious University of Minnesota Eye Clinic, becoming an expert in Cornea/ External Disease and Refractive Surgery.

As a cataract and cornea surgeon, Dr. Kai was a member of the faculty at the prestigious St. Erik’s Hospital in Stockholm where he taught medical students how to perform complex cornea transplants among other types of procedures. Today, Dr. Kai is one of the most experienced cross-linking specialists in the United States and a leading cataract and corneal surgeon who is committed to ensuring each and every patient has their best possible vision.


Dr. Kai and his wife have been married for more than 10 years and have three daughters. Dr. Kai admits that no matter how hard he tries to resist, he can’t say no to them. All they have to do is bat their eyelashes and they usually get what they want.

Favorite Things

One of Dr. Kai’s favorite things is to watch and play basketball. It’s great cardio even though his friends laugh that he is the only person on the court wearing protective goggles.

Dr. KAI-Lewis gave me a complete explanation of my condition, answered all my questions and explained the treatment option and the probability of success.
He and the staff were very professional and lowered my anxiety as I approached this surgery.

Exceptional surgeon, Dr. Kai is fantastic. 13 days from exam to surgery, 24 hours to 20/20. You won't find that often in Florida. Highly reccomend this office if you value your sight. Professional, timely and courteous. Thank you Dr. Kai and staff!! I'm very pleased.
