Dr. Joel Kestenbaum


Dr. Kestenbaum is the optometric director of Optix Family Eyecare and a consultant to many eye care practices across the country.  He received his Doctorate in Optometry from the New England College of Optometry in Boston and his Bachelor of Science degree from the New York State University at Albany.  He was raised in Plainview and returned in 1984 to serve his community, founding Optix Family Eyecare Center.  He is a member of the American Optometric Association, NY State Optometric Association and the Nassau County Optometric Society

Practicing the "medical model" of optometry, Dr. Kestenbaum and associates use sophisticated computerized equipment and analytical techniques to provide the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of eye disease.  He has made Optix known for the specialty of fitting contact lenses to patients who are hard-to-fit, using the latest contact lens technology. Using many new and exciting innovations, Dr. Kestenbaum and associates welcome those who may have failed with contact lenses in the past.

Dr. Kestenbaum's other interests include volunteering to help those in need with eye care, spending time with his family, golf, and travel.
