Dr. Christopher Gentile

Optometrist

Doctor Christopher Gentile has been in private practice since 1989 with an expertise in dry eye management and specialty contact lenses. In addition to Bellmore, Dr. Gentile practices in Freeport, Lake Ronkonkoma, and Patchogue. From a young age, Dr. Gentile has always had an interest in biology and found the eye to be fascinating. As someone who struggled with vision issues, he was amazed by how much his vision improved with each eye appointment and knew the world of Optometry was the right path for him.

Dr. Gentile is a graduate of the prestigious SUNY College of Optometry.
