About Our Practice

We are an optometrist owned private practice serving the communities in Albany, Schenectady & Saratoga Springs in New York. Our team uses only the best and most state-of-the-art equipment to ensure our patients are having the best eyecare experience possible. We serve a bi-modal population with patients ages 39-44 or 67+ years or older. Typically we see patients needing comprehensive exams and contact lens exams however we also handle some medical patients, but we don't require any medical specialty experience.

Our team is more than just a group of highly skilled individuals, and our practice is more than just a business to us. We currently have two MD's and 1 OD on staff, along with front desk admins, ophthalmic technicians, practice manager and optical staff we believe we have the ideal team to do what it takes to provide individualized patient care from start to finish all under one roof. We are a tight-knit group that feels more like family, and we treat our patients the same way. The patient experience is our top priority closely followed by how our team interacts and works together... As part of our team you will always be supported and encouraged to grow and learn throughout your career.

We do have undergrad students come through our office from time to time to help them decide if they want to be in healthcare, and we also have med students who complete their rotations in our office as they prepare for graduation. Mentorship and education is extremely important for us, not only to provide to new or upcoming graduates but as our practice continues to expand we want to make sure each staff member has the ability to grow and sharpen their skill-sets.
