Biography

As a local Optometrist, my practice is located in Downtown Milford, Connecticut. As a primary eyecare practice, our equipment, education, products, and services are state of the art. We take education and technology seriously as well as the concerns of our patients. Along with general Optometric eyecare, we do provide services to several local nursing homes working with those people that are like us but older or with short or long-term conditions that need multiple specialist's attention. From dealing with serious dry eye conditions utilizing embryonic membranes to testing the retina for underlying conditions with an Ocular Coherent Tomographer (OCT), our investment in technology and education are a great benefit to our patients. From great clinical instructors at continuing education courses to local referral doctors that we are just a phone call away from, we can help choose the next level of care with caring doctors if needed. 'Dr. House' may be great on the silver screen but we utilize referral doctors that have great skills as well as personalities that are approachable. Practicing in the mid-southern section of Connecticut provides us with great referral sources to tend to the tough usual and unusual cases that we can care for and learn from.
