In 1954, Dr. Joseph Gelsi started a mission to offer the best eye health care to Westchester's Rivertowns. His approach to examining the eyes was at the forefront of his profession, purposed to redefine how Westchester felt about their health and eyewear. Second generation family owned and operated, Terri Optics continues this mission today, providing both comprehensive examinations and beautiful eyewear!

At Terri Optics, we believe eyeglasses are so much more than a medical device to enhance your vision. Eyewear is a personal expression of who you are. It is an accessory to be worn proudly and happily. Your glasses should be as fun and unique as you are. We work hard to ensure that everyone who walks into Terri Optics leaves feeling great and looking fabulous. As a team, we search eyewear collections from all over the world to bring you the most unique and current styles as well as the best quality to you, our discerning client. At Terri Optics we believe in supporting USA made products, carrying eyewear collections that are sourced from Miami, Brooklyn and California to name a few. We also carry select eyewear collections that are handmade in Europe. After you’ve been styled with the hottest frames, our skilled opticians will discuss your needs and design the best lenses for your lifestyle. That’s right- no cookie cutter eyeglasses here! From start to finish, we will ensure that your entire experience is 5 stars.

Stop by today to see what all the fuss is about!

Dr. Joseph Muscente is BACK by popular demand! After taking some time off from Terri Optics to publish, teach, open his own practice, and pursue even more education (four degrees!), he has rejoined the team on Saturdays to offer top quality eyecare to the patients of Terri Optics. Specializing in primary care optometry, specialty contact lens fittings, and dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, allergies, and everything eye related, Dr. Muscente is an extraordinary eye doctor.

Dr. Laurence Lonky has been serving the vision care and eye health needs of the Rivertowns for over 30 years. A graduate of SUNY College of Optometry, Dr. Lonky specializes in primary care optometry, contact lens fittings, and glaucoma management. As a member of the community, he is driven by a desire to ensure that everyone is given the highest quality eye exams.
