A word from Dr. Schneider
"I have been privileged to spend my entire career in Riverdale maintaining and restoring my patients’ vision, thus enhancing the quality of their lives. My philosophy has been to 'go the extra mile' on my patients’ behalf and do whatever I can for their well-being. It is so rewarding to care for three generations of patients in the same family. I take great pride in having built a multi-specialty ophthalmology practice in Riverdale, which includes ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, retinal, glaucoma, cataract and dry eye specialists."
