Following his internship, he completed his residency in ophthalmology at the Eye Institute in Milwaukee.

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. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery.

Throughout his illustrious career, Dr. Borrillo has been the recipient of various accolades, including the Patients’ Choice Award (2017) and the On-Time Doctor Award (2016, 2017).
