Eyecare Services

Our Mission


At NYC Pupil, Dr. Ilana Gelfond-Polnariev and our entire Staten Island optometry team are committed to providing advanced vision care in a professional and comfortable environment. As an optometrist in Staten Island, our primary eye care service includes a complete eye exam that analyzes eye health and visual function. In addition to eye exams and vision testing, Dr. Gelfond-Polnariev and our team of optometry professionals provide testing for lazy eye, tracking, focusing, visual processing, and medical testing for glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.

Visual Information Processing Evaluation


This testing identifies difficulties in processing visual information and the ability of the individual to integrate this information to lead their actions. This testing determines visual perceptual abilities such as: identification, discrimination, spatial awareness, directionality (letter reversals), visualization, visual-sensory integration, visual-gross motor coordination, visual-fine motor coordination, and visual memory. Visual processing abilities are extremely important in the classroom and in the workplace.
