After completion of Dr. Elliott J. Klonsky’s Residency in Vision Therapy in 1976, he worked part-time for an optometrist in Crofton by the name of Michael Steadman, O.D. Unfortunately, Dr. Steadman passed away soon after, and Dr. Klonsky took over the practice.
From 1976 to 1996 the office was located in the Crofton Medical Professional Building, near Friendly’s Restaurant on Route 3 north. In 1996 the office was relocated to our current location in the Priest Bridge Centre.
Over the years, Dr. Klonsky has had several associate optometrists working for him. In 2004, Nina N. Doyle, O.D., joined the practice and has been with us ever since. Dr. D has been a wonderful addition to our practice for many reasons, but particularly because her specialty in eye problems of the older adult complement Dr. K’s specialty in childrens’ vision.
Recently, Drs. Klonsky and Doyle have brought in a third optometrist: Dr. Dana Greiss. Dr. Greiss completed a Residency in Childrens’ Vision, and joins Dr K in providing this important service.
What started as a one doctor/one secretary office 35 years ago, where everything was written on paper, is now a three doctor/ten employee office, with twelve computer workstations, electronic medical records, and all kinds of computerized examination technology.
