We came To Dr. Schwartz, primarily for our daughter with rapidly increasing vision issues. Dr. Schwartz recommended Orthokeratology to help control the vision issues. We have been happy with her treatment and support from the doctor and her wonderful team. We highly recommend their effective and friendly services.

New to the area, reviews were great so I made an appointment.They have a great system getting you in and out with the least human contact. The offices were SO clean. The Dr. took her time and explained all of the tests and results real time. I would highly recommend the Hartsdale Family Eyecare Team.

My family and I relocated to NY from the West Coast, and were fortunate enough to find Hartsdale Family Eyecare. The team was very polite and helpful. Everything was explained to us before it happened. Dr. Schwartz took her time to go through the examination with me and my son. We were never rushed, and we even had time to ask questions. Dr. Schwartz even gave us recommendations for eye exercises and ways to relief eye strain. I can’t recommend Hartsdale Family Eyecare enough.

It might be the pandemic, and the lack of a waiting line of patients, but I’ve never been treated so well at a doctors office before. The amount of attention and patience and multiple rounds of testing at a recent appointment was really crazy. Plus the front office knows their stuff - great experience buying what I needed for a prescription pair of glasses without paying for what I didn’t need. Can’t say enough good things about the HFE staff and Dr Schwartz. They’re like the friends you didn’t know you have, but the really smart ones.

Prior to coming to Dr. Schwartz in September of 2020, I was seeing another eye doctor for years. Within the past two to three years, I was constantly complaining that my glasses and contact lens that were prescribed to me was not working. Every time I went back to voice my concerns about my glasses, I was told, "You have to get use to them." In the meantime, I felt I was always walking on uneven ground. The glasses were so thick and heavy. The contact lens was another issue altogether. I was fed up and had it with this eye office, which led to my research in finding another eye doctor, who would take the time to listen to my concerns. This is when I looked into Hartsdale Family Eyecare. Dr. Schwartz is an absolute blessing and miracle worker. She takes the time to listen to you. This was the first time in all of my 35 years of wearing glasses, that I practically wear my glasses everyday. I LOVE MY GLASSES!!!!. The heavy, bulky, thick progressive that I use to wear, was a thing of the past. I had the wrong prescription previously. Now, I still have progressive, but they are light, stylish, not thick at all, and most important, I can see perfectly!!!!!! For my contact lens, where I was going before, my left lens was so thick, I could barely remove it from my eye, and on top of that, I was prescribed reading glasses with a strength of 2.25. Now with my new prescription from Dr. Schwartz, I can pop my lens out with no problem and my reading glasses prescription, if I need them, is only 1.00. I cannot believe I can see perfectly out of both my glasses and contact lens. I wish I would have came to Dr. Schwartz and the Hartsdale Family Eyecare years ago. Dr. Schwartz is a perfectionist. I absolutely love her. She has made me feel good about wearing glasses again. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I recommend Dr, Schwartz and her team to everyone. You will appreciate everything that they do for you. From, your entry/greeting with her staff until your departure, you will feel safe, as per COVID guidelines, receive quality service and know that your voice/concerns, really does matters to them. Thanks again.

Some of our favorite reviews...

Dr. Schwartz really cares about slowing down my myopia…

I’ve always had a great experience with Hartsdale Family Eyecare. Dr. Schwartz really cares about slowing down my myopia and she is up-to-date on the latest research relating to myopia. In the past few years, my prescription has stayed relatively the same due to Dr. Schwartz’s use of multifocal contact lenses.

Dr. Schwartz is very friendly and communicative…

Dr. Schwartz is very friendly and communicative, thorough and detail-oriented. My 11-year daughter has been coming to her for two years and Dr. Schwartz has had her on a low-dose atropine eye drops to slow down the progression of myopia. This medication is not yet approved by US Food and Drug Administration, but definitely helped in my daughter’s case. We are very grateful to Dr. Schwartz and would definitely recommend her.

Dr. Schwartz!!!! Highly recommended!

Myself, my husband and both my daughter (10 yr old) and son (6 yr old) see Dr. Schwartz. My husband and I get prescription glasses from her office, but my daughter is being corrected for myopia (nearsightedness) and is using ortho K lenses (orthokeratology) which she wears at night time while she sleeps so that she has a perfect vision during the day!

It’s amazing! So happy for her! We also love Dr. Schwartz!!!! Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Dr. Schwartz and the Ortho K option

My son is 14 years old and has been wearing the Ortho K contacts for over a year now. He is seeing better than 20/20 and is very happy with the results. He loves the fact that he doesn’t have to worry about contacts while he is playing his sports or even when he gets to swim.

Dr. Schwartz is very knowledgeable about the Ortho K and informs you about every detail of the process. She is always available if you have any questions, any time of the day. I highly recommend Dr. Schwartz and the Ortho K option, as it is extremely convenient and stops the progression of vision deterioration. One Happy Parent.

Everyone is so attentive and amazing…

My daughter is getting ortho-k treatment with Dr. Arlene and I can’t tell you enough how this treatment has been life-changing for my daughter. Dr. Arlene is the sweetest and very informative. She explains every step and makes sure her sight is at 100 percent. I love the office too! Everyone is so attentive and amazing!!

I waited for 3 months to write this review…

It's been 3 months since my daughter became Dr. Schwartz's patient. I waited for 3 months to write this review to make sure that Dr. Schwartz is up to the 5-star rating. Now I'm confident that she is a 5-star doctor! My daughter's eyesight got worse over the last 15 months and OrthoK was recommended by a few parents. We consulted with Dr. Schwartz and another doctor, finally we decided to choose Dr. Schwartz although her cost for OrthoK is higher. Dr. Schwartz is very professional, that's for sure. OrthoK can be tricky during the first few months, she explained it thoroughly and made it very clear for me and my daughter to understand. She provided hands-on guidance to my daughter when she started the treatment, very patient.

She's also very responsive, she provided me with her cell phone and promised a timely response. On top of that, my daughter likes her! It's a pretty important factor that we chose Dr. Schwartz. Although the other doctor we consulted was also professional, but there was no chemistry. Another thing I like about Dr. Schwartz/Hartsdale Family Eyecare is the location. It's right off the Hartsdale Metro-North Station, and so close to my house, walking distance actually. I blame Google Map for not showing Hartsdale Family Eyecare earlier.

Dr. Schwartz takes her job very seriously and never lets anyone leave unhappy…

Words can not express how I feel about Dr. Schwartz and her staff. They are so kind and friendly in that office and make you feel as if you are apart of a family when you are in the office. I found Dr. Schwartz by doing some research on Doctor's That specializes in contact lenses for Keratoconus. I have been to so many eye Doctor's that just couldn't help me with my vision. I was ready to give up until I met Dr. Schwartz. From the first day of the office visit she seen how frustrated I was with going to Different eye Doctor's and not getting any Positive results.. she has seen the defeat in me and she brought my spirits back up and made me believe again...

She took her time with me and never gave up on me. She takes her job very seriously and never lets anyone leave unhappy. I can honestly say she really does care about what she does and about you. She does not sugar coat anything she tells you the god honest truth and never leads you on. She introduced me to Scleral Lenses and it is AMAZING!!!!!!

I went from seeing 20/400 to 20/20.. I was in shock stunned happy amazed.... just emotional that I was able to see. It was such a heartwarming feeling to see again. This experience humbled me so much in so many ways. I just want to say Thank you!!!!! To Dr. SCHWARTZ and the staff. You ladies were great and helped me so much through this process. I appreciate all of you. Trust and believe me... Dr. Schwartz and her staff are amazing. And I cant wait to see you, ladies, soon... Now I have to come back for those all Black Ray Ban Sunglasses .... THANK YOUUUUU!!!!!! A++++++++++++++++

I highly recommend Dr. Schwartz and the Hartsdale Family Eyecare…

My name is Alberta and I have Keratoconus in both eyes. I was introduced to scleral lens last year and they were life-changing. I had cross-linking in both eyes and found I was no longer getting good vision from my scleral lens. I also relocated from FL to NY. I had to search for a new scleral lens fitter. After searching the internet and reading reviews, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Arlene Schwartz at Hartsdale Family Eyecare. I am so grateful to Dr Schwartz who was able to fit me for a new lens.

Dr. Schwartz was very patient and very thorough. She made sure she got the fit perfect and the vision great. Her staff was very friendly and professional. Everyone was absolutely awesome! If you have Keratoconus or any eye problems that require a special lens or for your routine eye care, I highly recommend Dr. Schwartz and the Hartsdale Family Eyecare.

I’m so grateful to Dr. Schwartz and her team for helping me to see again…

I’m so grateful to Dr. Schwartz and her team for helping me to see again! I recently got the corneal crosslinking procedure done for my keratoconus and was finally approved to get contacts. I’ve had specialty lenses for keratoconus before, but Dr. Schwartz recommended scleral lenses.

After a couple of appointments (after work- flexible hours!) she fit me with a pair of Acculens contacts. I haven’t seen this well in years. Really helpful, knowledgeable staff and Dr. Schwartz is a master of her craft. Anybody with keratoconus should absolutely contact her to get fitted.

I’ve seen my share of eye doctors over the years…

I've seen my share of eye doctors over the years and Dr. Schwartz is one of the best. She's professional, personable, up-to-date on the latest techniques, and really goes that extra mile to make sure you're happy with your sight. I came to her six months ago for scleral lenses which are a very specialized lens that's hard to fit.

Dr. Schwartz was with me every step of the way and I haven't seen this well since I was eight years old. Not only was she terrific but her staff is wonderful and just as personable as well. They even helped my wife with contacts. I would recommend Hartsdale Family Eyecare to anyone.
