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.
