  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Exemplary Care

We had an outstanding experience with Dr. Lederman in treating our infant son’s blocked tear ducts. We appreciated her straightforward, informative approach and obvious expertise, and were confident in her decided course of action despite his young age. Beyond her clinical excellence, Dr. Lederman was warm and encouraging both in the office and at the hospital, and managed to (somehow!) keep the baby at ease during the needed examinations. Dr. Lederman was wonderful to both patient and parents in pre- and post-op at the hospital, as well as in immediate follow up in the days after surgery. The practice runs very smoothly, as Dr. Lederman has excellent Assistants and a comfortable office setting. Further, the personal communication with our Pediatrician’s office was clear and prompt. Overall, we would highly recommend Dr. Lederman.

Thank you Dr. Lederman

Dr. Carolyn Lederman just treated my son, Jack, for a major chemical burn that burned a layer of his cornea off. She was fantastic from start to finish with his care. I have recommended her to everyone I know. I can't thank her enough for her excellent treatment of him over the past 5 days. I have her to thank for his quicker than expected recovery.

Five Stars

Dr. Carolyn Lederman came highly recommended by our eye doctor and pediatrician. Seeing how I've been a person whose worn glasses my whole life and seeing multiple doctors I've finally found the best Opthamology group around for the care of my child, simply the best! The combination of father and daughter in their practice makes you feel like you're family! Dr. Carolyn Lederman is great with kids, compassionate, always happy to go over any questions we have and our daughter absolutely loves her! She's always makes sure we are comfortable with everything before we leave her office and you never feel rushed. The office staff is always courteous, professional and friendly. The office is immaculate and has a waiting room that caters to both adults and children while waiting. I highly recommend her, she's become an integral part of our lives and the care of our child

competent but rude

Dr. Lederman has seen my daughter twice. We went with a pretty straightforward issue, trying to determine if she needs glasses for near sighted vision, which we were warned she would eventually need. There are times when a dr's bedside manner is less important because you need a good clinician. I cannot overlook the fact that Dr. Lederman is rude, aloof and made no effort to engage with my teen, or to make her feel at ease in her office. I would never take my daughter back to this office. Frankly, she's not good enough to override her terrible bedside manner. I felt it the first time, but decided to try again. Not going for a third try.

Professional and highly recommend

After a bad experience with the eye doctor in Greenwich, we saw Dr Lederman who performed corrective eye surgery for our 2 year old. It has been nearly 4 years and the eyes are perfect. We could not be more satisfied with Dr Lederman's ability to answer our questions thoroughly and is never in a hurry.
