Most people consider eyesight the most important of their five senses. As ophthalmologists, we have the training and experience to provide the most advanced, effective eye care and eye surgery to protect your eye health and treat eye diseases.

Dr. Sid Mandelbaum established our practice in 1990. He is a cornea-trained specialist in cataract surgery and corneal transplant and in treating conditions affecting the front of the eye.

Our capabilities include cataract surgery (including laser-assisted cataract surgery) corneal transplant (including DSAEK and DMEK), laser-refractive surgery (LASIK surgery and PRK surgery), pterygium and surgery for ocular surface tumors. We manage a wide variety of eye diseases at stages that do not require surgery. We treat Fuchs’ corneal dystrophy and keratoconus and the condition known as dry eye. We provide custom contact lens fitting, including soft daily contact lenses, rigid gas-permeable lenses, toric contact lenses and multifocal contact lenses.

We have helped thousands of people of all ages who come to us from Scarsdale, Chappaqua and Manhattan, New York, Newark, New Jersey, Greenwich, Connecticut and surrounding communities. We will use our expertise to help you, too.
