Customer Testimonials

This was my husband and my first visit. Everyone was very pleasant, friendly and professional. All of the testing was explained in detail and everyone was thorough. All of the rooms and equipment were immaculately clean. The doctor was warm and friendly and I didn't feel like he rushed through my time with him. He explained everything that was going on with my eyes, what he saw in all the tests done, what the next steps would be, my prescription, and he made me feel comfortable and at ease! Mike who helped me pick out my frames was great. I left really feeling that the health and care of my eyes were in great hands with Park Professional. Highly recommended!!!


I moved out of the city to Orange County NY. After having a bad experience with an Optical place close by, I decided it was worth traveling to the Bronx to my regular eye doctor that has been around since I was a kid. They saw me and my son the same day. My son is 8 and asked a lot of questions. Everyone was so friendly to us and answered all my son's questions. They have modern equipment so the doctor can see the health of your eyes without dilating them. Overall, it was an awesome visit and Michael helped us select glasses that were a perfect look for us!


There are doctors and there are outstanding Doctors I would say Dr. Paternoster is brilliant in his field. I would highly recommend Park Professional Eyecare to anyone who wants to receive excellent eye care. His staff is very professional and the ladies run that office in an excellent manner. They also have the most updated machines and a large selection of glasses also the most current styles and reasonable prices. I would tell anyone looking for excellent eye care this is the place.


Very professional and organized. Each phase was explained so you felt part of the process. Dr Paternoster and his immediate staff were friendly kept you informed at each step.
I highly recommend Dr Paternoster and happy my niece recommended him.

Before we discuss the use of orthokeratology in kids' eye care, let's explain the basics of what it is and how it works. Typically called ortho-k, this cutting-edge treatment is an effective way for people with myopia (nearsightedness) to achieve clear vision without wearing contact lenses or eyeglasses during the daytime hours. Even after years of needing vision correction, ortho-k will allow you to leave your eyeglasses and contacts at home when you head out for the day. And this is all accomplished without a need for surgery.
