Dr. Schechter attended Towson University in Baltimore before moving to Philadelphia, where he completed his optometric degree at Pennsylvania College of Optometry. While at PCO, Dr. Schechter completed an Advanced Studies course in the area of contact lenses where he focused on fitting specialty contact lenses. In addition to contact lenses, Dr. Schechter enjoys practicing medical optometry focusing on dry eyes, diabetes and glaucoma. Despite his passion for treating his patients’ eyes, what really makes him love his job is the interaction with his patients. His warm personality and friendly smile make his patients feel welcome at Fox Chase Family Eye Care. Dr. Schechter is a member of the American Optometric Association and attends many lectures and conferences to keep up with the ever-changing science and technology. In fact, at Fox Chase all of the staff members are required to stay up-to-date on the latest technology to ensure that the patients are getting the best care possible. When not working, Dr. Schechter loves to spend time with his lovely wife and wonderful children. Fox Chase Family Eye Care was founded by Dr. Lance Dunoff. Dr. Dunoff has since passed away and Dr. Schechter has run the practice for the last few years.

    I honestly didn’t know I could have a great eye exam experience until coming here!! My spouse and I wanted to find a new place after serious frustrations with our last place and Fox Chase Family Eye Care has left me so happy. Erin immediately made us feel very welcomed and comfortable and clearly had her work process locked down. Everything moved so smoothly and she checked everything ahead of time for me, which made me less anxious about missing important items or details. Beth then moved things along for me and was so friendly. She kept the experience relaxed and as fun as it could be. Dr. Schechter didn’t make me feel judged at all for struggling with the eye exam because of my poor eyesight. Despite my high prescription, he actually made me feel confident when I did succeed. I ended with seeing Heather speaking with my partner and saw they were chatting on very well and had figured out their lenses and frames with no problem. We were in and out, and honestly some of the extra time was spent just speaking with these lovely people! I never write reviews, but felt absolutely compelled to because of how nice this was!
