SightMD, a leading multi-specialty ophthalmology platform, today announced a strategic partnership with Norman Saffra, M.D., a Nassau County and Brooklyn based ophthalmologist. Through this strategic partnership, Dr. Saffra’s practices in Brooklyn (902 49th Street, Brooklyn NY 11219) and Hewlett (1229 Broadway Hewlett NY 11557) will expand SightMD’s presence by adding two locations and six providers, growing SightMD’s current footprint to 40 locations and 85+ providers across the New York Tri-state Area.

Founded in 1993, Medical and Surgical Eye Site has been a longstanding pillar of Brooklyn for over 25 years. The doctors of Medical and Surgical Eye Site are Norman Saffra, M.D., the founder of the practice, Emily Moriarty, M.D., Rivka Markowitz M.D., Kim Mostofsky, M.D., Kim Le, M.D., and Beatrice Whittaker, M.D.
