My area of interest include routine eye exams, treating eye infections,dry eyes, glaucoma, diabetic eye retinal exams, contact lens exam and problems as a result of wearing them. I will see patients of all ages. My goal is to provide a excellent eye care and explain the treatment of your condition to you. I will spend the time to educate you about your eye condition.
I am a member of the New York State Medical Society, The American Academy of Ophthalmology and The American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus. I will see patients of all ages.
My practice does accept any vision plans and I do not do gas permeable contact lenses.
Due to the small size of my practice I do not do glaucoma management or plaquenil screenings.

Fantastic visit with Dr. Auerbach. I thought I'd have an insurance issue, but he and his office manager did everything to make sure I could be seen that day which I really appreciated. The atmosphere is friendly and warm, and Dr. Auerbach has great bedside manner. His exam was thorough yet quick, he was informative and honest, and is all in all a lovely human. Very happy with my first visit and glad to have found such a great practice.

Absolutely personable, empathetic and kind. Excellent bedside manner. Dr. Auerbach knows what he is doing. His secratory and I believe also an office manager is super kind and helpful. That is what you want when you go to a physician. You like to be treated like a person not only a source to make money. Dr. Auerbach and his staff are an example of this and he deserves every single penny and wealth he makes from his profession. I highly recommend him .

I went to see Dr. Auerbach for the first time when I developed an irritation in one eye. He was able to diagnose and remedy the problem quickly and painlessly, while explaining clearly what he was doing at each step. I plan to continue to see Dr. Auerbach for my vision needs. Office staff was also friendly and helpful.

Doctor Auerback was very professional and efficient. The only surprise my insurance did not cover Eyeglass prescription , contact lenses prescription and the copay very high. In the end I paid double than it would have costed at a regular eye glass shop.

Doc Auerbach is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. He's accommodating, empathetic, knowledgeable and very professional. He's very easy to talk to and give thorough examinations while explaining the details of what he's doing and why which alleviates concerns about all of that scary eye equipment! I would recommend Doc Auerbach to anyone looking to find an eye doctor in the city. As an aside his family often helps out at the desk and his regular secretary Paula is as sweet a person as I've ever met. All around good experience every time and I'm a repeat patient. Doc Auerbach has earned my trust and loyalty.

This was my first visit and I was very impressed! Dr. Auerbach greeted me as I walked in the door and after I checked in with his friendly assistant, Paula, I got to see him right away. He was very thorough and even noticed that I was being prescribed a medication that might have adverse effects on my vision, so he suggested I research it a little more. I did and have since stopped that medication in favor of a different one with no side effects regarding vision. He also did a comprehensive eye exam and I was given a prescription for both glasses and contacts. I just contacted the office for some medical records and he called me back almost immediately and is having Paula send the records as soon as possible. Professional and personable. Would highly recommend! Thanks, Dr. Auerbach! And thanks, Paula!

I was so pleased to find out what continues to irritate my eye, and on the first visit to a new doctor, no less! I got drops that are clearing up the condition. Dr. Auerbach gave me a potential option to explore if this recurring situation gets worse or impedes my lifestyle. I appreciate that he did not try to push me towards another specialist, and was honest about it being my decision. I felt that had Dr. Auerbach felt strongly that I should investigate further, he would have told me as much. I've already recommended him to a colleague looking for a new ophthalmologist.

Wait was 45m then Doctor rushed us through. He saw some spots in my wife's eye but didn't have the equipment to take a picture. He suggested we go to a different doctor that had that equipment. We'll be following his advice. Payment was also confusing. I paid for the visit even though had insurance, then when insurance pays the doctor I had to call to request my money back. They did apologize for not returning it before the call
