Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Meet our doctors:
Dr. Samuel Choi has been practicing optometry since 2008. After receiving his doctorate in Optometry from the SUNY College of Optometry, he trained further at the Northport VA Medical Center and Capital Eye Consultants in Fairfax, VA. He has supervised and trained volunteers for several eye care mission trips to Mexico and Guatemala. Dr. Choi’s previous practice was consistently voted as one of the top optometry practices in Queens. A member of the American Optometric Association, New York State Optometric Association, and the Optometric Society of the City of New York, Dr. Choi can perform eye exams in English, Spanish and Korean.
Dr. Rochelle Fleisher received her bachelor’s degree in Integrative Neuroscience from Fordham University and earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from State University of New York College of Optometry. She went on to complete a residency in Ocular Disease at The Eye Institute at Pennsylvania College of Optometry. Her clinical interests include retinal disease, glaucoma, and ocular manifestations of systemic disease. She also has extensive experience managing corneal conditions and dry eye disease.
Dr. Fleisher is currently accepting new patients and looks forward to providing high quality eye care to the Kips Bay community.
Dr. Warren Zimmerman graduated from Brooklyn College in 1972 and The New England College of Optometry in 1976. He became a staff optometrist at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami from 1977 to 1978, where he had the opportunity to work with some of the top ophthalmologists in the country. Dr. Zimmerman took this knowledge and joined the staff of Miami Veterans Hospital. In 1980, Dr. Zimmerman returned to New York and founded Gramercy Park Optical.
Dr. Zimmerman specializes in difficult prescriptions including prism and hard to fit contact lenses, and has a close relationship with many ophthalmologists who refer these cases to him for both contact lenses and eyeglasses.
