Dr. Wasserman has been taking care of my eyes for many years. He is very kind , has a very comforting demeanor. He is adept and gentle with the eye exam. Very thorough and professional. Office staff is very experienced. Dr. performs eye exam and procedures. Unlike other offices that farm the tasks out to people with undisclosed credentials. I can relax knowing I am well cared for.

SCAM!! SCAM!! SCAM!! Please beware that the team at the Eye Care Center of Stamford will involuntary make appointments and more appointments for you to come in just so they can run the money through insurance. The appointments last 5 mins, but they charge insurance hundreds of dollars. I have been left footing the bill of what the insurance doesn’t pick up. When asked to speak with Dr. Eric Wasserman about this practice, the front desk wouldn’t allow me too. ALL THERE EQUITIMENT IS OUT DATED

Excellent Doctor. The reason for the one star is that he has the WORST billing person I've ever seen! I have literally have lost out on HUNDREDS of dollars of reimbursements from my healthcare savings account because i can't even get a proper receipt or statement from them. Most doctors offices give you one that same day. This one can't. "Roseanne" promises to mail it to you. She doesn't. So you chase. And get something w/ errors. After 4-5 times, you give up. It's UNREAL!! Stay away.

I used to use an eye doctor in NYC but needed to switch to somebody in Fairfield County. I couldn't have been happier with Dr. Wasserman's services and the way the office staff treated me. He gave me a perfect prescription. I'm in my 60s: I haven't seen this well in 35 years. I strongly recommend him.

I had to cancel my appointment during a snow storm. his office didn't answer the phone so I didn't show up. turned out the office was open and he wanted $100 as a fee from me. I couldn't believe that was true when the whole city was shut down due to the weather. he insisted on fee payment misrepresenting my previous cancellations. He went to great lengths to wrestle off $100 from me. $100 I worked for & he didn't. Shameful, undignified and unprofessional!!!

I have had an eye condition which other doctors over the years have never diagnosed. I had severe migraines in and behind my eyeball and drooping eyelids. He diagnosed dry eye, told me to use eye drops and hold off on eyelid surgery. Since The day after I started treatment, I have had no more eyeball aches and my eyelid no longer droops.
