Dr. Squillace's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Squillace "Steven Squillace, O.D., graduated from Linton High School in Schenectady, NY and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Multiple Science from LeMoyne College in Syracuse, NY. Accepted at three optometry schools, he chose The New England College of Optometry in Boston, MA, due to its reputation and diverse clinical rotations. In his fourth year, he trained at the world-renowned Joslin Diabetes Center and the Pediatric Clinic in the Back Bay and North End Community Health Center in Boston, MA. After graduation, he completed his internship at SUNY College of Optometry in New York, NY, for Vision Therapy. Dr. Squillace joined Springfield Optometric Associates in Springfield in 1986 as the practice's pediatric optometrist. After five years of this clinical practice, he completed a fellowship in the College of Vision Development (COVD). Somers Vision Clinic opened in 2002 to the community, which, at the time, did not have an eyecare provider. Dr. Squillace is also a member of the Connecticut Association of Optometrists, The Massachusetts Association of Optometrists, and a 30-year member of the National American Optometric Association. He maintains an associate membership in COVD. Dr. Squillace also provides eye care services at Eyesight & Surgery Associates in East Longmeadow, MA, to serve his clientele and those who have insurance plans that are only accepted in Massachusetts."
