Optometrist, Brooklyn, NY

Dr Dessner is super detailed and caring. I went to him in an emergency (I had extreme pain and uncontrollable tearing in my left eye) and he made a huge difference. He prescribed meds to provide immediate relief, clearly explained the source of the problem, and switched me to daily contacts to prevent the problem in the future. Highly recommend!

Dr. Cercone is a very knowledgable and throughout optometrist. She explained my condition in detail and provided several solutions to help resolve my issue. It is great to have such a wonderful office in the area! The optical selection is great as well. I will definitely keep her as my eye doctor!

Great doctor, great office, great staff. I was in and out in no time despite being late with a prescription for glasses in hand which I was able to get some nifty glasses in their optical shop. So convenient !
