Special Thanks for Help Away From Home




During a recent visit to Martha’s Vineyard, MA, one of our readers needed a refill of her daily wear contact lenses. After a quick Google review of the island’s eye centers and optometrists, and several phone calls later, she learned that only one optometrist on the island might have the appropriate lenses in his office. Dr. David Finkelstein (Doctor of Optometry) spoke with our reader, searched his office, discovered that the lenses were not available, and special ordered the lenses. He quoted a price that was considerably less than any retailer our reader had previously used. The next day Dr. Ryan Shea, working in Dr. Finkelstein’s office, took time out from his busy schedule to meet our reader and answer all of her questions regarding the lenses.

NFTB is happy to recognize the special efforts of Drs. Finkelstein, Dr. Shea and Pat (office receptionist and the person who probably made all this happen). We recommend their office to any boater in need of optometric services while in the vicinity of Martha’s Vineyard. The office is located in Vineyard Haven at 28 State Street, tel: 508-693-3517.
