Lucien G Prince MD, MBA, MS-CVRT, CLVT

Born in Jacmel, Haiti and youngest son of Marie Gella Prince. Lucien was inspired by his elder brother Pierre S. Prince to pursue medicine, who is now the Director/Cardiac Surgeon of a hospital in Hinche, Haiti. Lucien completed his medical degree from the State University of School of Medicine and Pharmacy in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in 2002. He completed his residency in Ophthalmology January 2005.

After migrating to the U.S., Lucien worked at Franklin Hospital, North Shore LIJ, Forest Hills Hospital, Glen Cove Hospital, New York Hospital Queens, St. Mary’s Hospital for Children, and started his own business Express Health Services all while he completed his MBA in Healthcare Management. While working between these facilities, specifically at Express Health Services, he was able to help and take care of several patients with multiple health conditions. However, when it came to vision rehabilitation, he noticed he was limited.

After his experience during the earthquake in Haiti, he was assisting patients with other Low Vision Specialists and Optometrists. Upon his return, and working with the children at St. Mary’s Hospital (Bayside, NY) with multiple disabilities including visual impairment, he wanted to be part of the solution. Lucien then pursued his Masters in Vision Rehabilitation/Low Vision Therapy at Salus University, Elkins Park, Pa. This way, he was able to contribute in assisting clients with visual impairment and blindness. Upon working at VISIONS and Eastern Blind Rehab Center in VA Connecticut, he was even more inspired by the needs of these clients (students) to get back to the field. Lucien visited many homes of clients diagnosed with visual impairment or blindness with no knowledge of devices recommended by Eye Care Specialists, services, visual skills or options. Most of the questions that the veterans asked regarding their eye conditions indicate to him that so much still has to be done.

His first publication is “The Art of Phlebotomy,” and he is currently working on publications related to low vision and the eye diseases.
