About Weston Contact Lens Institute

Weston Contact Lens Institute is an optometry practice based in Weston, Florida. As our name suggests, we are focused particularly on the prescription of contact lenses to help our patients manage an array of vision and ocular surface related conditions. We specialize in fitting innovative contact lenses for patients who, due to corneal irregularities and other issues, struggle to find contact lenses that fit comfortably or offer effective vision correction. Our specialties include scleral lenses, orthokeratology lenses, custom soft contact lenses, and more.

Our Optometrist are:

Dr. Elise Kramer

Dr. Elise Kramer is an experienced optometrist who practices in both Weston and Miami. In 2012, she graduated from the Université de Montréal with a doctorate in optometry. While attending the university, Dr. Kramer attended a seminar course on the subject of specialty contact lenses. She became passionate about the design and use of specialty lenses, and after completing her schooling, pursued a career focused on that aspect of optometry. She completed her residency at the Miami VA Medical Center which included training at Miami’s Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, which has been ranked as the best eye hospital in the United States by the U.S. News & World Report every year since 2004.

Dr. Kramer now works at two different practices to help patients with conditions such as keratoconus, myopia, hyperopia, post-surgical complications, chronic dry eye syndrome, and more. She is a member of the American Optometric Association and a fellow of both the Scleral Lens Education Society and the American Academy of Optometry.

Dr. Stacy Zubkousky

Dr. Stacy Zubkousky holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Central Florida and a doctorate in optometry from the New England College of Optometry. She spent time working at the Boston Medical Center, the VA Boston Healthcare System, and China’s Eye Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University—all as part of various externship programs. She completed her optometry residency at Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida. There, she focused on corneas and contact lenses, and even lectured on the importance of specialty contact lens fitting and design.

Dr. Zubkousky went on to start the contact lens department at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, with a focus on treating challenging conditions like keratoconus and dry eye disease with specialty lenses. She continues her work with those conditions—and with specialty contact lenses—at the Weston Contact Lens Institute.

Dr. Harvey Mazer

Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, Dr. Harvey Mazer has called South Florida home since 1980. He has been practicing as a board-certified optometrist in the area ever since, first in the Miami area and later in Weston. Dr. Mazer’s first Weston practice, established in 1989, was the very first optometric office ever opened in Weston.

Dr. Mazer got his bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Maryland in 1975. He went on to study at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, earning his doctorate from the institution in 1979. He completed his residency at the Southern California College of Optometry in Pediatric and Developmental Vision Care, and became a fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development in 1984.

In addition to working with Dr. Kramer and Dr. Zubkousky at the Weston Contact Lens Institute, Dr. Mazer is also a consulting physician with the HealthSouth Sunrise Rehabilitation Hospital in Sunrise, Florida. Specifically, he works with patients who have suffered vision loss in the wake of strokes or head trauma.
