If you are looking for an opthamologist who specializes in Keratoconus, OCLI Garden City is the place. I had crosslinking last summer and PRK a month ago performed by Dr. Donnenfeld. My experience with Dr. Donnenfeld and his staff has been very positive. He and his staff are knowledgable and kind. I travel a distance to come to this office but I would not go anywhere else. I have recommended him to three others that I knew were looking for a corneal specialist also!
Incredible staff and Dr Donnenfeld is a sweetheart
I had laser cataract surgery on my right eye. I actually don’t know anyone who has as bad vision as I did. I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 5 and am now 51.

The science out there even more. Thank you OCLI for giving me this whole new world of sight and colors that I will always cherish:
