About Nandini Venkateswaran, MD

I am a cataract, cornea and refractive surgeon at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary who is primarily seeing patients at the Waltham, MA satellite office. Equipped with the highest-level of medical training from the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute and Duke University Eye Center, I strive to employ my clinical and surgical expertise to create a customized, detailed, and compassionate treatment approach for every patient, no matter how complex the condition.

I specialize in: complex cataract surgery, femtosecond laser-assisted refractive cataract surgery, cutting edge techniques in full and partial thickness corneal transplantation, laser refractive surgery, corneal cross-linking and intacs for keratoconus and post-refractive ectasia, corneal dystrophies, dry eye disease, meibomian gland dysfunction, ocular surface tumors and lesions, anterior segment reconstruction, secondary intraocular lens implantation.

A skilled public speaker and writer, I thoroughly enjoy sharing my research and educating the ophthalmology community at national meetings and courses as well as through peer-reviewed original research manuscripts and book chapters in notable texts. My leadership positions in several national organizations has permitted me to partner with leaders in the field to improve the quality of ophthalmic care provided to patients.
