Overview

"I was drawn to medicine by my desire to treat disease and ease suffering. As a kid, I have always liked to help out my neighbors by shoveling snow for them or walking their dogs. I also really like talking with my patients and getting to know them. Vision is a very precious sense and it is almost always the one thing people would not like to lose. The knowledge that I have helped a patient see or read better, when a patient smiles and is grateful for the care received, and the internal satisfaction in knowing I have done a good job in helping someone achieve their best possible vision is extremely gratifying to me." Dr. Robert Auerbach graduated from Vassar College with a degree in Biochemistry in 1983. He received his medical degree from SUNY Downstate in 1987 where he also finished his residence in ophthalmology in 1992. Previously, he completed his medical training at Beth Israel Medical Center in 1989. Dr. Auerbach is board-certified by the American Academy of Ophthalmology and has been with Rye Eye Associates for fifteen years. He is also an active member of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus. He sees all children and adults for routine, medical and emergency eye care. Dr. Auerbach diagnoses and medically treats glaucoma, diabetic-related eye diseases and retinal disorders. He takes care of red eyes, dry eyes, and foreign body removal. Additionally, he has been taking care of children in his Rye, Great Neck and Manhattan offices for 20 years. He specializes in treating children with amblyopia (lazy eye), exophoria, strabismus, and myopia. He sees newborns as well as adults. Dr. Auerbach lives in New York City with his wife and children.
