Eye Doctor Simpsonville SC Carl Bruce

Carl Bruce, M.D.

“Choose a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Dr. Bruce has found this kind of passion as a comprehensive ophthalmologist. His expertise includes cataract surgery and laser vision correction, with special interests in advanced technology lens implants and minimally-invasive glaucoma surgery. He loves sharing the joy of patients who have excellent outcomes from surgery or vision correction.

After completing his undergraduate degree in economics at the George Washington University in Washington D.C., Dr. Bruce returned to his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, for medical school at Washington University. He went on to complete an internship in internal medicine at The Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati, followed by his residency in Ophthalmology at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, serving as Chief Resident in his final year. Prior to joining Jervey Eye Group, Dr. Bruce was in practice at the Cincinnati Eye Institute.

Dr. Bruce and his wife are happy to be in Greenville, not just for its natural beauty and friendly people, but also for its proximity to their family. They enjoy all kinds of outdoor recreation, and Dr. Bruce enjoys “all things car related.” Dr. Bruce also participates in mission work abroad, having been involved in Ophthalmologic surgical missions in El Salvador and Honduras.
