Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region: A Magnet for Talent
With more than 40 years in business, Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region delivers trusted, full-service eye care to the Capital Region. They’ve grown from one initial location to five since inception with many office expansions over the years with the addition of a fifth location in the past two years, serving Albany, Clifton Park, Schenectady, Schodack, and Troy, with everything a patient would need for their vision including general, medical, specialty and surgical eye care.
“Recently, we’ve expanded our Schenectady location, added optical services and a local optometrist, has merged his practice with Ophthalmic Consultants and is now seeing patients in our Schenectady and Albany locations,” explained Dr. Allen Zieker, president of Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region and director of cataract surgery.
Due to this level of continuous growth over the most recent years, Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region has become a magnet for leaders in eye care. “We create a work environment that attracts top talent locally, as well as from other states. Recently, we’ve hired technicians from Vermont, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey,” explained Nancy Shipley, CEO of Ophthalmic Consultant of the Capital Region. “We’re also very excited to have Marc Fish join our team as a Retinal Technician from a local retinal surgery practice here in Albany. He has over 11 years of retinal photography experience along with technical clinical experience and brings with him the knowledge that isn’t easily duplicated.”
Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region’s impressive staff of doctors includes board-certified optometrists and ophthalmologists, who are fellowship-trained specialists, researchers, and educators with more than 75,000 surgical procedures performed. This extensive experience directly translates into providing advanced treatment and patient care. With subspecialties in retina, glaucoma, and neuro-ophthalmology, Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region provides the latest in technology and treatment protocols for conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal diseases, and dry eye.
“We feel so very lucky to have the opportunity to help so many people in the Capital Region live a better life with better vision,” Dr. Allen Zieker said. “Many of us went to school around here, raised our families here, and feel a real connection to this community,” Dr. Allen Zieker continued. “It is our goal to provide compassionate, comprehensive, and advanced eye care to our patients’ right here. No need to travel. And to reach that goal, we are always on the look-out for staff with the skills and passion to make a difference for our practice and our patients’.”
