Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Dr. Shane Galan and staff take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describes your options and listens to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Please feel free to call us at Diamond Vision and discuss any concerns you may have.
Meet Dr. Galan:
Dr Shane Galan was born and raised in Rockaway Beach and Oceanside NY. He graduated SUNY Albany in 1991 and The New England College of Optometry in 1996. In 1997, Dr Galan completed his residency at the Northport VA Hospital and has owned Diamond Vision since 2000. Dr Galan is married to his wife Amy, and has two children (Hunter and Alexa) and adopted the world's cutest dog named Ozzie.
Dr Galan specializes in contact lenses. This includes soft lenses (astigmatism and bifocal) and hard lenses (rigid gas permeable). For the past several years, Dr Galan has been passionate about myopia (nearsightedness) control. As a result of children and adults using handheld devices (computer, iPad, iPhones and other devices) more than ever, patients' prescriptions have been increasing at an alarming rate. He has been at the forefront of treating these patients successfully with specialty contact lenses (orthokeratology, multifocal lenses). Theses lenses have been shown to slow down the rate of nearsightedness.
Dr Galan and the entire staff look forward to meeting you and your family. We provide an atmosphere that is warm and caring. We take the time to listen to all of your needs and concerns and will address all of them. This is why most of our patients are referred by family and friends than any other source.
