He continued his training at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, where he received the Mendelson Family Retina Research Fellowship and was inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Dr. Venincasa then stayed at the University of Miami to complete his residency training in ophthalmology at the world-renowned Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.
Dr. Venincasa joined Loh Ophthalmology Associates as a comprehensive ophthalmologist who treats many conditions of the eye, but he has a special interest in cataract surgery and refractive cataract/premium lens replacement surgery, using cutting-edge technology to give his patients their best possible vision. He also treats diseases of the ocular surface—including pterygia and dry eye syndrome—as well as general eye care including the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, diabetic eye exams, and routine eye exams.
Dr. Venincasa lives with his lovely wife, Emilie, a Miami-native pharmacist and travel enthusiast, and with his Australian Shepherd named Troy. In his spare time, he is a lover of all things food and cooking. If you don’t find him enjoying his favorite Cuban breakfast—una tostada con dos croquetas de jamón al dentro, y un cortadito con un poco azucar—you may find him in his kitchen trying to recreate a recent meal from a local restaurant. He loves to run, having previously completed the Miami Half-Marathon with aspirations to complete the full marathon in the future, as well as cheering on his favorite sports teams.
Dr. Venincasa’s main goal is to improve the vision and lives of all of his patients, and he looks forward to seeing you!
