Raymond A. Kolkmann founded Raymond Opticians in 1959, prior to the advent of advanced lens technology, and consequently perfected his ability to pair patients with their optimal prescriptions. He later passed this skill to his three sons, who, in turn, imparted the art of optometry to their own sons through careful instruction and basic osmosis. Today, Raymond Opticians' third generation of ocular outfitters benefits from not only the techniques and standards developed by Raymond Sr., but also from modern lens technology, such as Varilux lenses that help correct vision problems and Transitions, which darken when outside. After examining and diagnosing each patient's eye issues, the doctors help them select from a vast array of designer frames and sunglasses by Oakley, Prada, and Versace.
Dr. Ingeborg Dziedzic isn't just interested in helping clients see better—she wants them to look better, too. This is why, along with Dr. Shahin Eghanian, she helps clients consider the aesthetic value of their preferred treatment, whether through selecting the proper contacts or frames or through procedures such as laser vision correction. The doctors can also help with medical issues, such as glaucoma, blepharitis, and cataracts.
With more than 15 years of experience and thousands of successful vision-correction procedures under his belt, Dr. Gordon boosts visual acuity with computer-guided LASIK and PRK procedures. Dr. Gordon’s encyclopedic knowledge of ophthalmology and refractive procedures manifests itself in his numerous articles published in medical journals and during his classroom work as Associate Adjunct Professor of Ophthalmology at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.
Dr. Gordon and his team understand that many patients feel apprehensive about undergoing vision-correction procedures. Many of the staff have undergone vision correction procedures themselves and they empathize with nervous patients. To help assuage anxieties, the staff can thoroughly explain each step in the treatment, which helps eliminate the fear of the unknown, such as wondering if there is a Jolly Rancher stuck to the back of your head.
