OUR HISTORY

About Our Practice

For more than 100 years, three generations of Menger doctors have specialized in “modern” eye care in the New York area. The meaning of “modern” has changed, especially in the last few years with the addition of microsurgery, lens implantation, refractive surgery, and laser treatments. These techniques require increasing skill and specialized training on the part of the doctor and result in a greater success and comfort for the patient.
