Theo E. Obrig, inc. is a contact lens specialty practice located in the heart of New York City. Our history goes back many years to Obrig himself. Theodore Obrig is credited for discovering plastic polymers can be used in contact lenses. Prior to his research, contact lenses were actual glass. So all us lens wearers can give Obrig a huge “thanks” for making lenses a healthier and more comfortable option for vision correction.
While Obrig’s developments in the field of contact lenses were back in the 1930’s, today we are still on the forefront of contact lens technology. The two contact lens specialists, Susan Mazure and Steve Cogger, have a combined total of over 50 years experience in fitting and designing contact lenses.
Susan Mazure is president and chief contact lens specialist on staff.
