Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston and Eye Health Services, both leading referral centers for advanced eye care, affiliated in 2021 to become OCB Eye Health Services, providing patients with the highest level of eye care as well as a wider range of access to highly skilled ophthalmologists and convenient locations. For more than 50 years, our physicians have been dedicated to providing exceptional eye care. OCB was founded in Boston in 1969 by three ophthalmologists, and became the first private multi-specialty ophthalmology practice in the country. Eye Health Services was founded in 1971 with just five ophthalmologists and three offices. Both OCB and EHS have flourished into the area’s premier eye care practices. Now one team, OCB Eye Health Services ophthalmologists offer the very latest diagnostic technologies that enable doctors to detect subtle changes in the eye, allowing for earlier detection of eye conditions and therefore earlier intervention if needed. Please explore our team of eye doctors, the many specialized services we offer and the conditions we treat.
Our ophthalmologists are fellowship trained and recognized regionally and nationally as experts. They are authors of text books, medical journal articles, and are frequently presenting at both national and international meetings delivering scientific papers about their clinical experience and results of their clinical research. Many are actively involved leaders in research advancing medical and surgical care of a wide range of eye conditions. OCB Eye Health Services is a leading clinical trial center for such conditions as macular degeneration and keratoconus among others.
We now have 18 practice locations throughout Massachusetts, where our ophthalmologists and optometrists provide community based eye care. OCB Eye Health Services has grown into one of the largest and most respected ophthalmic practices in the United States.
Many of our doctors are consistantly named “Top Doctors” in Castle-Connolly and Boston Magazine listings.
