Quality eyecare and personal attention are our focus at the office of Russell Fradkin, OD and Jane Orenstein, OD. We are a family optometry practice that prides itself on the individual care and attention we provide all of our patients. Your entire family is welcome at our office. We are located in Whitinsville on Rt 122. We fit a wide array brands and types of contact lenses.
Our goal is to serve our patients by helping them with their personal eye health and providing them with professional and state-of-the-art eyecare. We believe that healthy eyesight is vital to a high quality of life both of which we are committed to! We use our OCT ( Ocular Coherent Tomography) to view beneath the surface of the retina and image the ten individual layers of the retina, essential in recognizing early stages of wet/dry Macular Degeneration and other retinal diseases. The OCT also is used to image the Optic Nerve to identify and monitor early stages of Glaucoma. Our Automated Threshold Visual Field unit monitors early visual changes in glaucoma and neurological conditions, and also is used to watch for retinal changes in those patients who are taking Plaquenil ( hydroxychloroquine). Our Automated Refractor instrument almost instantly is able to give an objective determination of what the patient glasses RX might be, extremely useful with young children or other patients with which we may not be able to adequately communicate.
We invite you to visit our beautiful frame dispensary and choose from the latest in eyewear. We carry both affordable and high-end designer frames from Clear Vision including BCBG, Ellen Tracy, Jessica McClintock, Izod, Ocean Pacific, Puriti, and also frames by Guess, Safilo, Juicy Couture, Vera Wang, Dana Buchman, and many more!
We have an optical lab on the premises to to help provide the best possible service for your eyeglass needs. Brian Girouard, R.D.O. is a master optician who will help you find the perfect glasses. We have been voted a first place in the "Reader's Choice Award" for 2014, 2015, 2018, and most recently 2019

The world has changed since the advent of Covid so our office policies have changed as well, including:
--The office staff:
-will wear masks,
- use hand sanitizer frequently
- exam room and frame room will be sanitized in between patients
- waiting room, doorknobs, surfaces, bathroom will be sanitized frequently
---Upon arrival for your exam, we request that the patient will call the office to let us know you have arrived. If our phone line is busy, then it will be ok to enter. We will give you the clipboard of paperwork to fill out in your car. We will come get you in the parking lot when we are ready for your exam. We will take your temperature with the non-contact thermometer. Masks must be worn by the patient at all times.
The exam room is equipped with a Hepa filter air purifier with UV-C. We will try to keep the windows and doors open for fresh air ventillation as advised by the CDC.
We will be trying to keep patient encounters shortened per CDC advisories. We will be asking if you or someone near you has been sick. Everything will be by appointment only, including eyeglass frame adjustments and pick ups. We request that you enter our office alone, unless a child or if someone requires assistance.
---When in the frame room trying on frames, your mask must stay on. You will tell Brian which frames you would like to try. He will give them to you to take outside the office where you can take off your mask and try on the frame using the mirror beside our front door. The frame will then be sanitized by our staff.
