Optometric skills to also provide diagnosis and treatment of eye disease.His experience included care for the mentally challenged (at the Laurelton State School in Pennsylvania); geriatric vision care (at the Bellhaven Nursing Home in Brookhaven, NY for 9 years), and; consulting and visiting eye doctors (at the South Country School District in Bellport, NY for 15 years).Most of Dr. Anthony Modesto's experience has been in private Optometry practice.  At his first practice, he was a part owner of Coram Plaza Optical in Coram, NY (1977-1981) and the establishment of Bellport Optical (or The Eyecare Center of Bellport) in 1981, which is still in existence in Bellport Village (now under new ownership).  His retail optical experience at Hillman-Kohan (now Pearl Vision Center) and fill-ins at Cohans Optical and Sterling Optical have provided a full background in all phases of the delivery of eye care.Dr. Anthony Modesto is very proud of his family, who often assists him in the practice at Advanced Eyecare in Miller Place.  His wife, Barbara, manages the practice and his two daughters often fill in at optical sales.  His second daughter, also an Optometrist, provides eye exams during vacations and while Dr. Anthony Modesto is attending seminars.  His son, although not in the eyecare field, tests many of the new products.We would love to make a difference for you.
