Dr. Jeffrey S. Leen

Pediatric Ophthalmologist - Comprehensive Ophthalmologist

Dr. Jeffrey S. Leen is a board certified pediatric ophthalmologist. He completed his premedical studies at Yale University and the University of Pennsylvania. He attended Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in his home state of New Jersey. Following a general medicine internship at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J., he returned to Rutgers where he completed his residency in ophthalmology at the Institute of Ophthalmology and Visual Science. He then completed a subspecialty fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology under the tutelage of Dr. Zane Pollard at Eye Consultants of Atlanta. Dr. Leen joined Rockland Eye Physicians in 2004 where his primary focus is on pediatric eye care. 

Why a pediatric ophthalmologist? There are pediatric ophthalmologists for the same reason there are pediatricians, because children are different than adults. They have different risk factors, develop different types of problems and require a different type of exam than adults do. In particular, since children are still growing, certain eye conditions can interfere with their normal development. If these conditions are not detected and corrected in a timely fashion, permanent vision loss can result. The specialized techniques used for examining children’s eyes, particularly infants and pre-verbal toddlers, are difficult to master and require years of experience to perfect. Dr Leen’s expert training and vast experience makes him uniquely qualified to provide comprehensive quality eye care to children of all ages.

Dr. Leen sees children from premature infants up to young adults. He treats strabismus, amblyopia (lazy eye), and blocked tear ducts. He is experienced in caring for children with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and other special needs such as autism. He performs comprehensive exams for glasses and contact lenses and evaluates children who failed a vision screening with their pediatrician or school nurse.
