Dr. Ross Zeldes is proud of the rich heritage his
practice has in serving residents of Connecticut. The practice
was begun by his father, Dr. Benjamin Zeldes, in 1957. Growing
up watching his father interact and care for patients had a profound
effect on Ross, and as a young man he decided to follow in his
father's footsteps. After completing his undergraduate studies
at Nasson College in Maine and
Boston State in Massachusetts, he was accepted into the New England College of Optometry.
He graduated in 1987 and joined his father in practice later that
year. The two Dr. Zeldes enjoyed their professional
partnership for over 15 years until Dr. Benjamin retired in 2003.
Zeldes loves working with patients and prides himself in giving
individualized attention to every person he sees. In addition to
ensuring every patient sees as clearly as possible, Dr. Zeldes is
especially interested in eye health and medical vision care. He has
earned the distinction of "As Qualified," the highest
license Connecticut confers on optometrists. In addition, Dr.
Zeldes was awarded the certification of Clinical Diplomate by the
State University of New York for completing advanced studies in the
diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma.
Zeldes' wife Patricia shares
his passion for quality patient care and serves the practice as office
manager. They have five children and two grandchildren.
When Dr. Zeldes is not caring for his patients or enjoying his family,
he spends his time boating, fishing, skiing, and bowling.
