Originally from Argentina, Gustavo started his life as an entrepreneur and his love for the Optical world at a very early age. After getting his technical degrees in Electronics, and a specific degree in Optics & Contact lens, he jumped into academia to get his Engineering degree.

Business was booming, so he decided to put all of his efforts into developing it further.

Twelve years later, he decided to play in the big leagues and move with his family to the US to start the business he always dreamed of: an international hub for the best optical equipment in the world, with the best service, and the best price.

In 2002, US Ophthalmic was born in South Florida, the place that Gustavo, his wife and three children are now calling home. The company is close to the Miami international Airport and provides equipment from the best suppliers in the world and puts them in the hands of Ophthalmologists, small businesses, hospitals and global distributors.

GIVING BACK

Saving one life is like saving the world, as God teaches us.
A simple test could save the whole world. Early detection of amblyogenic factors could change the life and future of a child. It is impossible to measure the positive ripple effect this will have on a child's adult life and their interaction with society. If untreated, this individual will be sentenced to be ostracized and have limited education skills, as well as multiple limitations in their work environment and contribution to society. With good visual health, that child who would initially be sitting at the back of the classroom and be relegated, would be start to move forward the the front lines, moving forward in their educational environment, at sports, socially and in life in general. How many children with this condition could become doctors, engineers or scientists, who would be able to make priceless contributions to society?
God has granted us the possibility of touching those lives and having a positive impact on them by putting all tools for detection within our reach and we are fully committed to put them to use. We, however, would like to approach this in a more personal manner. Donating a check to a good cause is relatively easy but, as our mentors taught us, the highest form of charity is donating our time. Therefore, we are not only contributing with equipment, but we are also getting involved directly as we encourage our people at the company to volunteer as well.

TESTIMONIALS

In all my years in private practice, finding an honest distributor of products for our practice is perhaps the Key to our success. Several years ago, We purchased an auto-refractor from U.S. Ophthalmics. To date, it has proven to be the most reliable A/R unit in our practice.
Several months ago, U.S. Ophthalmics found out that we had purchased a portable A/R unit for our practice from another distributor. They inquired if we were happy with the portable unit. Our staff replied that we had ceased using that unit as it was not very reliable. Within 2 months, our office received a new unit from U.S. Ophthalmics. Wow! It was unbelievable that they would take such good care of us even if we did not purchase that unit from them.
To have found such a reliable and caring distributor is like finding a jewel in a haystack. Today, our practice is now using the new portable 2WIN A/R unit along with their desk model to help us with our refractions. Our doctors like having results from 3 A/R units instead of just one. Patients are very impressed with our technology which we use for their benefit.
We highly recommend to our friends and colleagues that if they are looking for an honest, reliable, and caring ophthalmic distributor then all they have to do is look up U.S. Ophthalmics for all their needs.
Sincerely,

Harvey Yamamoto, O.D.
