Family Vision Care Associates is a multi-doctor general optometry practice located at the intersection of I684 and I287 in White Plains, NY. (directions)
Founded in 1960 by Dr. Ira Bernstein, the practice has two optometrists and a complete support staff offering a comprehensive range of eye care and optometric services:
Our founder, Dr. Ira Benstein, continues to share his encyclopedic knowledge and optometry experience with patients every day. He is joined by two other "Bernsteins", son Paul and daughter-in-law Andrea. All are Doctors of Optometry.
So, while Dr. Ira didn't know it at the time he began the practice, FVCA eventually turned into a family affair.
Appropriately so, in an age of medical impersonalization, FVCA strives to bring a personal, family approach to eye care and to our patients. That's the promise Dr. Ira made back in 1960 and one we strive to fulfill every day.
BCVP also provides visual rehabilitation services to those patients who have lost visual function as the result of a traumatic brain injury.
During comprehensive eye exams we assess eye health and refractive status (near-sightedness, far-sightedness, etc.). It is possible that even if each eye has "perfect 20/20 vision," the two eyes may have significant difficulty working together (a binocular dysfunction) which can result in blurred vision, double vision, eyestrain, headaches, reading avoidance and poor depth perception. The Center was founded in 2000 by Drs. Paul and Ira Bernstein and is recognized throughout the U.S. as a leader in treating binocular vision problems with vision therapy, prisms and lenses.

Optometrists examine, diagnose, treat, and manage diseases, injuries, and disorders of the visual system, the eye, and associated structures as well as identify related systemic conditions affecting the eye.
