Eitan Burstein, M.D., M.S., F.A.A.O.

Glaucoma & Cataract Specialist

Dr. Eitan Burstein

Dr. Eitan S. Burstein is an ophthalmologist practicing in the towns of Danbury and Prospect, Connecticut. He specializes in eye and vision care with a focus on glaucoma and cataracts, and was named a "Top Doc" in 2020.

“My priority is to make the diagnosis of glaucoma as early as possible, and to treat patients the way that I would want to be treated in their situation,” he says.

As an ophthalmologist, Dr. Burstein diagnoses and treats diseases, performs eye surgery, and prescribes eye glasses and contacts. He welcomes new patients in both our Danbury and Prospect offices.
