About Dr. Sanford Katims, O.D.

Our optometric practice was established by Dr. Herman Katims in October of 1938 and we haven't moved from 76 Main Street since then, although we have expanded from one store front to three. The practice was the subject of featured article in the New York Times a few years ago.

Dr. Sanford Katims (Sandy) graduated from Illinois in 1982 .and can diagnose and treat eye disease. He is one of the leading LASIK co-managing doctors on Long Island and is one of only 3 co managers with staff privileges at the Garden City Center. Sandy was also one of only 6 lead investigators for Acuvue Contact Lenses in 1992 and was commissioned by Johnson & Johnson to lecture many times throughout the northeast on the topic of contact lenses.
