An experienced ophthalmologist, Dr. Weisz provides premium care at Connecticut Retina Consultants, seeing patients at their offices in Fairfield, Hamden, Norwalk and Trumbull, Connecticut. 

Established in 1990, Connecticut Retina Consultants is the leading and most accomplished retina specialty practice in Connecticut, serving patients at locations in New Haven, Hamden, Madison, Trumbull, Norwalk and Fairfield, Connecticut. It offers comprehensive care of medical and surgical retinal diseases like diabetic retinopathy, dry eyes, floaters and flashes, macular degeneration, macular pucker, retinal detachment, retinal tears, and uveitis.

Alongside working at Connecticut Retina Consultants, Dr. Weisz is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Yale School of Medicine. He can also be found on staff at Yale New Haven Hospital and Bridgeport Hospital.

Earning Phi Beta Kappa honors, Dr. Weisz graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College. He received his medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City, where he was a member of the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and recipient of both the Sandoz Award and the Edith and Denton McKane Memorial Award for Outstanding Scholarship and Research. 

Thereafter, he continued his medical training in ophthalmology at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, which was followed by fellowship training in uveitis, also at the Jules Stein Eye Institute. He then completed specialty training in medical and surgical retinal diseases at the Wilmer Eye Institute, part of The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

Subsequent to his education, the doctor attained board certification in ophthalmology through the American Board of Ophthalmology, an independent, non-profit organization responsible for certifying ophthalmologists in the United States of America.

Actively engaging in clinical research for retinal and uveitic disease, Dr. Weisz is an active member of the American Uveitis Society, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Retina Specialists, and the Connecticut Society of Eye Physicians.

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. Ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and may perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery. Dr. Weisz’s practice is limited to medical and surgical disease of the retina, the light sensing tissue at the back of the eye, and to uveitis, infectious and inflammatory diseases of the eye.

With over 25 years of experience in his field, Dr. Weisz has been the recipient of the Castle Connolly Regional Top Doctor Award, Connecticut Magazine Top Doctor Award, and New York Magazine Top Doctor Award. He has also been mentioned in Moffy Media Magazines from 2018 through 2021.

When not helping patients, he enjoys chess, tennis, and skiing.
