Dr. Paul Naftali

Dr. Naftali founded Madison Eyes in 1995. He is a graduate of Duke University. He completed his professional training at the University of California at Berkeley in 1989 graduating 2nd in his class. Dr. Naftali completed an optional additional year of residency at a unique combined program between the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (now Salus University) and Hahnemann University Hospital Department of Ophthalmology in Philadelphia from 1989-90. Dr. Naftali has 20 years of practice experience; he has developed strong interests in the treatment of glaucoma and macular degeneration due to his own family history. He also has stayed tuned in to developments related to the prevention of myopia (nearsightedness) progression, and the latest methods of contact lens correction for vision correction.

A comprehensive eye exam provides the best opportunity to treat and correct vision problems and is one of the most important to-dos as children head back to school.

Early detection and treatment provide the very best opportunity to treat and correct vision problems to help children see clearly. Both the American Optometric Association and the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommend  that a child’s first eye exam take place between six months and twelve months of age. Unless problems are detected, the next exam should be at age three, and then every two years once a child begins school.

My wife and I were first treated by Dr. Naftali in Clinton, NJ in the mid '90's, and were disappointed when he moved his practice to Madison, NJ which is about an hour from where we live. But our experience with Dr. Naftali was so positive that we unhesitatingly "moved" with him.
