Albert R. Frederick, Jr., MD, Ophthalmologist and Surgeon, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Eye Health.

Dr. Frederick was a fellow of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear teaching hospital group from 1962 to 1965, and became an ophthalmic surgeon with the Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston that year, serving until 2013. His father was a general practitioner, and even at the age of five, Dr. Frederick was inseparable from his little black doctors’ bag. He entered ophthalmology because of his instructor in medical school, Frank West. Combined with his love of machines and gadgets, surgery was the natural direction for his career. Deciphering the puzzles of the human eye has allowed Dr. Frederick to come into contact with very important people in medicine, including a Nobel Prize winner who taught him parasitology. These experiences have been the highlight of Dr. Frederick’s career.

An alumnus of the University of Florida, Dr. Frederick earned a MD from Harvard University in 1961, and interned with Boston City Hospital II & IV Medical Services. He served a residency with the Harvard affiliated Massachusetts Eye and Ear, where he laid the foundations for his career. Dr. Frederick has also been a class agent of his medical school class for Harvard Medical School, and is a diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology. He is a fellow of the Massachusetts Medical Society.

While working as a surgeon, Dr. Frederick also served to the rank of captain with the U.S. Air Force from 1966 to 1968. He still holds membership with the Harvard Club of Boston, and since graduating has treated patients for retinal disease, macular degeneration, trauma, and retinal detachment. Dr. Frederick is a recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, and appeared in three volumes of Who’s Who in America. He also has a fantastic number of hobbies, including photography, beekeeping, numismatics, calligraphy, and paleography.
