DR. SHIYAN TAKES THE INSURANCES THAT ARE LISTED; HOWEVER, WE ARE AN OPTOMETRY PRACTICE. IN ORDER FOR US TO TAKE THESE FOR ROUTINE EXAMS, ie: glasses or contacts, YOU MUST HAVE ROUTINE VISION COVERAGE THROUGH YOUR MAJOR MEDICAL OR THROUGH A THIRD PARTY. PLEASE CALL US WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
Dr. Irina Shiyan graduated the SUNY College of Optometry with a Doctorate Degree in 2008. She earned her undergraduate degree from NYU’s College of Arts and Science.
After graduating, Dr. Shiyan became an integral part of a multi-specialty practice associated with Peninsula Hospital in Far Rockaway. From pediatrics to adult eye-care, Dr. Shiyan in partnership with other doctors provided a comprehensive range of ophthalmology and sub-specialty services. Dr. Shiyan also volunteered her time and expertise to charity organizations and events, offering free eye care and consultations to needy families and children. Some of these nonprofits included the Special Olympics, Big Brother Big Sister events and OneSight vision screenings.
In 2010, Dr. Shiyan’s vision of a boutique-style eye care establishment that focused on personal attention, impeccable customer service and unsurpassed expertise was finally realized. Dr. Shiyan and a fellow Optometrist, Dr. Natan Dorfman, opened Village Eyecare in the heart of the East Village in NYC. This ideal location complimented Village Eyecare’s personable and friendly service. Dr. Shiyan and Dr. Dorfman are happy to offer a wide range of services and expertise to all East Village residents and visitors.
When Dr. Shiyan is not seeing patients at Village Eyecare or volunteering at one of the many charity organizations or events, she travels to exotic locations and supports local art and music organizations.
