Jonathan Fishbein, OD

OA 5536, OM 270M00122600

I grew up in Toronto, Canada, and graduated from York Mills High School in 1986. I spent a year at Hebrew University of Jerusalem before graduating with a B.Sc. in Psychology from the University of Toronto in 1991. I received my Doctor of Optometry degree in 1997, and completed a residency in Vision Rehabilitation at the Feinbloom Center in Philadelphia in 1998.

In my free time (when I’m not transporting my teenage daughter to dance or her friends’ houses or helping my son prepare for freshman year of college), I run! I am currently on a running streak, and will hit 1,000 days of running at least 2 miles everyday in September!

Prapti Shah Chandrani, OD

OA 6492, OM 27OM00115300

I grew up in North Brunswick, New Jersey, and graduated from North Brunswick Township High School. I chose to pursue a career in Optometry after graduating from high school and was fortunate enough to be accepted into a joint 7-year accelerated program with the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Before I departed for my college adventures, I wanted to experience real-world optometry and was given the opportunity to work at Somerset Eye Care as a technician. My journey continued as I completed my Bachelor’s degree and moved to NYC for my Optometric education at SUNY College of Optometry.

Tobin Ansel, OD, FAAO

OA 6731, OM 27OM00673100

I am originally from Boston, and have lived in Northern NJ since childhood.
I graduated from University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Neuroscience. I became interested in optometry after suffering a serious eye injury in college– I had to see an optometrist multiple times and was impressed with my doctor’s ability to minimize my pain and preserve my vision.
After graduating from college, I worked in the optometry field as a technician here at Somerset Eye Care. Creating great relationships with patients has always been important to me, and I appreciated the opportunities to do this as a Somerset Eye Care employee.

Sukhpreet Kahlon, OD

OA 7009, OM 27OM00167800

I was born in New York and raised in central New Jersey. I graduated from Rutgers University – New Brunswick with a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and a minor in psychology. I became interested in optometry when I met a visually impaired student on campus. I then joined the pre-optometry club during undergrad, where I was able to participate in providing vision screenings in my community. While applying to optometry school, I also began working as an optometric technician, which allowed me to gain more exposure to the field. I received my doctorate degree from SUNY College of Optometry. My clinical training includes experience with treatment and management of ocular disease, surgical co-management, specialty contact lenses, myopia management, and low vision.
