New Windsor, New York (PRWEB) June 22, 2009 – Highland Ophthalmology Associates, LLC will host the grand opening of its new eye care facility in New Windsor, New York. The new 6,000 square foot, state-of-the-art specialty eye care center features nine exam lanes, six diagnostic rooms equipped with the latest in ocular imaging and testing equipment, and an expanded optical shop. Staffed with four physicians and a dedicated staff, the contemporary facility provides the highest level of eye care to its patients. "We have always strived to provide the highest level of sub-specialty eye care to patients of our community," said Dr. Mary Davidian, Founder and Medical Director of Highland Ophthalmology Associates.
The grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled at 12 noon on Thursday, June 25th, 2009.
Highland Ophthalmology Associates conveniently accommodates local residents that require specialty eye care services. Through the expertise of board-certified medical eye doctors, it provides the latest in eye exams, diagnostics, and prescription eyewear, along with advanced cataract, corneal transplant and glaucoma surgeries. Patients no longer have to travel far distances to receive these specialty services. "In the past, patients needing specialty eye care services had to be referred to physicians in New York City or Albany, since access to Fellowship Trained Cornea and Glaucoma Surgeons was not available locally," said Dr. Thien Huynh, Glaucoma Specialist at Highland Ophthalmology. "Patients not only had to travel far distances for their surgeries, but also had to continue to travel far for their follow up care."
Dr. Mary Davidian and Dr. Thien (Tim) Huynh are board-certified ophthalmologists, medical doctors who are specially trained to provide a wide spectrum of eye care, from prescribing glasses and contact lenses to complex and delicate eye surgery. Having completed a Cornea Fellowship at the University of California at Irvine after her residency training at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in Manhattan, Dr. Davidian has worked closely with Dr. Richard Mackool, one of the innovators of modern day cataract surgery. She is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), The American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS), the New York Keratorefractive Surgery Society, the New York Intraocular Lens Implant (NYIOL) Society, and the New York State Ophthalmological Society (NYSOS) in which she has served on the Board of Directors. She is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and serves as an Associate Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary and New York Medical College, where she is actively involved with resident education.
Dr. Thien (Tim) Huynh received his fellowship training in Glaucoma at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City and brings this unique expertise to the community. He earned his medical degree from NYU School of Medicine and performed his medical internship at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in New York City before completing a residency in ophthalmology at Drexel University's College of Medicine in Philadelphia. He is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a Magna Cum Laude graduate from Harvard University.
Dr. Miriam Rolf and Dr. Maureen Wallen are optometrists who practice general eye care and conduct contact lens fittings. Together, the doctors and staff at Highland Ophthalmology are able to provide patients with their complete eye care needs.
The new office of Highland Ophthalmology Associates is conveniently located at 140 Executive Drive, New Windsor, NY 12553.
