“There is no way I am able to express my thanks to Mendel Optical Insight is Rye Ridge Plaza in Rye Brook. I came in for my exam with absolutely no vision in either eye. Dr. Hal Mendel told me that I had cataracts in both eyes which prevented me from seeing. Dr. Mendel sent me to a cataracts surgeon who removed both cataracts and I could see again. I was left with a slight prescription and Dr. Mendel fit me with contact lenses to give me perfect vision. There is nothing better than having your vision returned to you. I will always be grateful to Dr. Mendel and the staff at Mendel Optical Insight.”

No matter your age, we can help you find the right eye wear, contact lenses or sports glasses to meet your needs. But honestly, we REALLY love helping youngsters get into their first pair of contact lenses and out of those old eye glasses.

“I cannot stop telling people about the great care and service I receive from Mendel Optical Insight. Dr. Hal Mendel fit me with a special monovision contact lens technique and now I can see distance and near and do not have to wear eyeglasses. My son and daughter and husband were fit for contact lenses by Dr. Mendel and they could not be happier with the fit and vision they get out of their contact lenses. When my kids needed glasses the staff at Mendel Optical Insight showed a great deal of knowledge and patience and helped them pick out some great designer frames. The service, bondness, caring and professionalism is second to none. Thank you Mendel Optical Insight for everything.”
