Dr. Slotnick prioritizes the individual’s needs and goals to prescribe glasses that are not only customized to a person’s visual demands, but also to their lifestyle needs. With an eye towards prevention, she addresses signs of long-range concerns, addressing the source of the problem, not just the symptoms.
Specializing as a pediatric eye doctor, she guides children's visual development to support academic success, with glasses or optometric vision therapy. Her primary care optometry and vision rehabilitation practice is in Scarsdale, NY, where she cares for patients of all ages, infancy through geriatrics.

Glaucoma: "The sneak thief of vision." No pain, and often, no symptoms until it is too late. Half of Americans with Glaucoma do not know they have it!
Prevention of vision loss from glaucoma requires a comprehensive eye exam every 1-2 years.

5 Star: Roberto Q. "Dr. Samantha Slotnick evaluated my eyes more then over a year ago. It was the most complete evaluation I received. She was very helpful in pointing out issues with my eyes and explained the reasoning behind it. As oppose to other doctors that did not. I had such a great experience that I recommended her to my father. She loves what she does and will do anything that is possible to help her patients." http://bit.ly/1K4yoBu

Thus we have taken our three children to the practice to ensure their vision develops well. With the timely support of glasses for two of the three kids, they are getting what is needed so their vision is improving. Through experience, I have come to trust her recommendations and referrals." http://bit.ly/1K4yoBu
