Laura Erwin, Optician

Laura began her career in optical in 1988, and has pursued excellence in dispensing ever since. Managing an optical store has become a passion that started with her first management position in 1995. It was at that time that she began working with Dr. Katz, and in January 2003 she brought her passion for helping others to Dr. Katz’s private practice. She carries that same enthusiasm through the new ownership under Dr. Pereira. Laura is a NYS licensed optician as well as a member of the NYSSO. When Laura is not in the office she enjoys traveling with her husband, Michael, and their two daughters, Hannah and Rachael.
