Owner, Optometrist

When you walk into the doors of Bergen Optometry, you’re not just met by optometrists who are ready to give you an eye exam. You’re met by warm, friendly people like Dr. Brody-Sendroff, who make it their mission to get to know their patients better. That’s the atmosphere that’s been created at Bergen Optometry, and Dr. Brody-Sendroff is a big reason for it!

Dr. Brody-Sendroff has been practicing optometry for nearly 20 years, using the latest technologies and cutting-edge diagnostic tools to help her patients see better. By prescribing glasses and contact lenses and diagnosing common diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, she’s able to help change and even save the lives of her patients. She is particularly fond of treating dry eye, glaucoma and macular degeneration, amongst several other ocular conditions.

Dr. Brody-Sendroff earned her Doctorate of Optometry from Nova Southeastern University College of Optometry in Fort Lauderdale, FL. She takes pride in giving back to the optometric community and teaching the next generation of optometrists. That’s why she acts as an adjunct professor with the Pennsylvania College of Optometry and the New England College of Optometry. By taking on this role, she’s able to host students during their education career at her practice.
