Ever since he can remember, Dr. Stanley always wanted to be a physician. Having an inquisitive personality, he gravitated toward the sciences, which became his ultimate gateway to medical school. Along the way, he joined the debate team in high school, which taught him the value and methodology of analytic analysis, leading to a scholarship at the University of Miami. The lessons that were learned have been invaluable, impacting how to evaluate circumstances and practice high quality medicine.
Dr. Stanley was fortunate to have been accepted into the Ophthalmology Residency Program at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. His professors were not only world class in terms of academic excellence but traditional thinking physicians. He was taught the science of medicine but more importantly, the art of taking care of people. Over the 32 years of practicing ophthalmology, Dr. Stanley is most proud of having helped so many individuals and taking personal pride in the long-term relationships he’s established.
Dr. Stanley’s philosophy in practicing ophthalmology is a conservative one. He has always followed the dictum “doctor, do no harm.” He is always current in modern advances, both medically and surgically, but will wait until a new treatment has been shown to be safe and effective before incorporating it into the care of patients.
Dr. Stanley’s objective is to provide the highest quality ophthalmologic care. He performs the most modern methods of cataract surgery with a micro-incision, no stitch technique. The office has the most current laser scanning and ultrasound equipment to comprehensively evaluate all eye diseases. He has surrounded himself with the best-trained ophthalmologic sub-specialists in South Florida, so in case a referral is necessary, his patients can rest assured they are being referred to the community’s finest.

Ever since he was a young boy, Dr. Klein remembers wanting to be an “eye doctor”. He recalls his mother taking him to the family ophthalmologist and claiming ‘that’s what I want to do’, being in awe of all the lights and gadgets. Because of his fondness for the health sciences, technology and inspiration acquired from volunteer work at The Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, his lifelong desire became a reality.
His education culminated in attaining a residency position at the world renowned Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, followed by specialty training in diseases of the cornea, refractive surgery and oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery.
Now in practice locally for over 27 years, Dr. Klein pledges to deliver the highest quality of ophthalmic care. Staying abreast of the latest technology as it develops, he continues to incorporate these newly acquired skills into his daily practice and offers such advances when proven to be safe and effective to his patients.
