Hirshfield Eye Associates was founded in 1990 by Gary S. Hirshfield, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified ophthalmologist and eye surgeon. Dr. Hirshfield is a graduate of Yale Medical School. At Hirshfield Eye Associates, the philosophy is simple . . . pay attention to the needs of the patient. That's why this clinic is different. Each patient receives individual attention from Dr. Hirshfield himself instead of relying on ancillary staff so he can perform all the pertinent aspects of the examination of the patient to ensure quality.
