"As a Doctor of Optometry, part of my commitment to my patients is ongoing professional education.  As technology and the world around us changes, I have to keep up-to-date, because I have to provide the best care possible for your eyes."

Dr. Knapp received his Doctor of Optometry degree in 1981 from the SUNY College of Optometry in New York City. Following receiving his degree, Dr. Knapp returned to the Mohawk Valley where he had been born and raised. He began with an office in West Winfield.

In addition to his private practices, Dr. Knapp has worked at the Central Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired as a Low Vision specialist from 1981 to 1989. Until recently and for the past 15 years, Dr. Knapp tended to the visual needs for the residents at the Harding Nursing Home in Waterville. In addition to being certified by the National Board of Examiners in Optometry, Dr. Knapp is New York State certified in the use of Diagnostic Pharmaceutical Agents as well as Therapeutic Pharmaceutical Agents.
