About Epstein, Andrew J.
DR. ANDREW EPSTEIN graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and Upstate Medical University in Syracuse. He did his ophthalmology residency at the George Washington University Medical Center, and his cornea and external eye disease fellowship at Wills Eye Hospital. Dr. Epstein is board-certified and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
As a comprehensive medical and surgical ophthalmologist, Dr. Epstein specializes in all aspects of eye care including the treatment of cataracts, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, dry eye disease, and macular degeneration. Today’s advanced cataract surgery affords patients the opportunity to minimize the need for glasses after surgery. Dr. Epstein employs all the latest technological advancements to let patients achieve this goal with astigmatism-correcting and multifocal lenses. “Most importantly,” he notes, “education and communication with the patient are key.” He takes the time to assess each patient’s individual needs for the best possible outcome. Dr. Epstein attributes the success of his practice to open and candid communication with every patient, easy accessibility to his staﬀ, and a warm and welcoming oﬃce environment.
