About Dr. Polanski (formerly Pietrasik)
Dr. Polanski (formerly Pietrasik) knew from a young age she wanted to work in healthcare, and after shadowing several professions, she fell for optometry. After completing her Doctor of Optometry at SUNY College of Optometry in New York City, and then a residency in Ocular Disease and Low Vision with the VA in West Haven, CT, she returned home to Western New York to start her career. She’s a passionate optometrist for patients in West Seneca, NY, especially when it comes to fitting specialty contacts, managing ocular diseases, and working with elderly and pediatric patients.
A Buffalo native, Dr. Polanski (formerly Pietrasik) now lives in Lancaster, NY, with her husband and son. When not keeping active herself with running and yoga, she loves watching her local teams. (Go Sabres and Bills!) She’s also an avid traveler, both for herself and others: During a volunteer mission trip to Chiapas Mexico, she had the opportunity to serve hundreds of patients and supply eyeglasses to those in need.
Favorite Patient Story
“I saw a patient for a routine eye exam and found a retinal condition that can be indicative of precancerous colon polyps. My patient was referred for further testing, and I’m happy to say that the polyps were removed before becoming cancerous!”
Primary eye care
Pediatric eye care
“This location is wonderful!! All the staff are great. Super friendly and helpful. Cannot thank Dr. Polanski (formerly Pietrasik) enough for the care she provided. Not to mention, they have a large selection of glasses at a very affordable price. I have insurance but paid less here than any other place I’ve been to.”
