Our Eye Doctors


Our Optometrists in Liverpool & Fayetteville New York

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 always 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, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.


I have been going to Dr. Malara for over twenty years now. Might even be longer. Always a very personal experience. Spends time to explain everything and makes sure your prescription is accurate. If you want a doctor who cares about you and your health, he is the person. Outstanding staff as well. ~G.M.


 

Our optometrists will 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.


I am a physician and I have never been to an optometrist who is this well organized. I was very impressed by the equipment. The staff was wonderful. Please keep up the good work. ~Dr. S.
