After graduating from SUNY College of Optometry, Dr. Daniel Epshtein took a position at a high-volume multispecialty practice in New York City serving the underserved population with a significant ocular disease burden. He directly supervised optometry students as an Adjunct Assistant Clinical Professor and provided instruction on myriad topics including perioperative care, uveitis, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and ocular surface disease. He has since taken a full time position at the ophthalmology department of Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, becoming the first optometrist to ever practice at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s. Dr. Epshtein’s research focuses on using the latest ophthalmic imaging technologies to elucidate ocular pathophysiology and to help simplify equivocal clinical diagnoses. His clinical interests include posterior segment disease, uveitis, and ocular surface disease, especially glaucoma therapy exacerbated ocular surface disease. Dr. Epshtein combines his research experience with the latest clinical practices to detect vision threatening disorders and provide the best treatment options available.
