Eric D. Donnenfeld, MD, an internationally recognized refractive and cataract surgeon, has been named America’s Best Eye Doctor 2021 by Newsweek. Dr. Donnenfeld ranks first out of 150 ophthalmologists with a near perfect score for quality of care, continuity of care, and the quality of the technology used in his practice. As his ranking shows, Dr. Donnenfeld has earned the respect of his peers and many other health professionals for the care and expertise he brings to the world of ophthalmology.

Dr. Donnenfeld is recognized as an expert in the field of cornea, laser cataract, and refractive surgery.

Considered a pioneer in cornea and refractive surgery techniques, he has participated in over 40 FDA studies, designed and patented six instruments for refractive surgery, authored more than 190 papers on cornea, external disease, and cataract and refractive surgery, and currently serves on the editorial board of nine journals.

Previous recognitions of his work include the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Nassau Surgical Society (youngest person to receive this award), named one of the Top 50 Most Influential Ophthalmologists in the U.S. by The Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, and included on The Ophthalmologist’s Power List 2018. Currently, Dr. Donnenfeld serves as a Cornea, Laser Cataract & Refractive Surgeon with OCLI Vision in Fairfield, CT and Garden City, NY. OCLI Vision is one of the world-class eye care practices fully supported by Spectrum Vision Partners, a management service organization focused on the ophthalmology sector.

“I am truly honored to be included among such a distinguished group of ophthalmologists and wish to congratulate them for their success. My goal throughout my career has been to advance the field of refractive, cornea, and cataract surgery and provide my patients with the highest quality of care.” says Dr. Donnenfeld.

Tom Burke, Spectrum Vision Partners’ CEO, says, “Dr. Donnenfeld’s distinction as America’s Best Eye Doctor and the inclusion of Dr. McDonald and Dr. Perry to this list is a testament to the unprecedented contributions they have made to the field of cornea and refractive surgery over the years and their dedication to their patients.”

Another OCLI Vision doctor, Marguerite McDonald, MD, FACS, was also recognized in Newsweek for her superior expertise in the field of cornea, laser cataract & refractive surgery. She has been recognized for her pioneering work in refractive surgery that also included development and performance of the first excimer laser procedure in patients. Dr. McDonald has also received over 90 professional recognition awards including the ISRK Lans Distinguished Refractive Surgeon Lecture, the ISRK/AAO Barraquer Lecture, the AAO Whitney Sampson Lecture, the AAO Binkhorst Lecture, and the ASCRS Steinert Lecture.

OCLI Vision’s Henry D. Perry, MD was also recognized in Newsweek for his superior expertise in corneal and refractive surgeries. Dr. Perry is regarded as one of the leading corneal and refractive surgeons in the United States. In addition to this achievement, Dr. Perry has also won the Senior Honor Award and Honor Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Most recently, Dr. Perry was awarded the Life Achievement Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology for his contributions to ophthalmology; he is the first ophthalmologist from Long Island to win this award. Dr. Perry has also won several Best Doctor Awards and received the 2016 Premier Surgeon 300 designation given to the top 300 surgeons by Ocular Surgery News.

Newsweek ranked the top eye doctors in the U.S. using three criteria: the quality of care provided, the continuity of care provided, and the technology used in the doctor’s practices. To curate a qualified list of the best eye doctors, Newsweek started by selecting the 300 top ophthalmologists and optometrists from the 20 most populous states in the U.S. Then, they surveyed over 10,000 ophthalmologists, optometrists, clinic managers and other health care professionals.
