Meet our Doctors

Dr.Brian Wolanin

Dr. Brian Wolanin is an Optometrist who is passionate about providing the best care for his patients in every way possible. After graduating from The Ohio State University College of Optometry in 2013, Dr. Wolanin founded Gold Coast Eye Associates in Trumbull, CT. Over the years his loyal patient case has grown and now serves patients in the greater Fairfield, New Haven Counties and the surrounding areas. In 2016, he expanded Gold Coast Eye Associates into Waterbury to further serve the needs of a growing patient base.

When not providing comprehensive eye care, Dr. Wolanin enjoys spending free time with family and friends, especially traveling and doing outdoor activities such as hiking, golfing, and skiing. A father of four crazy dogs, he also can be found working on his growing vinyl record collection, learning to play the acoustic guitar, and attending concerts of his favorite artists. Brian is excited to call Connecticut and the greater New England area home and looks forward to creating many heartfelt memories and hopefully soon expanding his family to bring some young buckeyes into the world!

Dr. Restivo was born in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. He is the youngest of five siblings born to Italian immigrant parents. After moving to Chicago, Illinois at the age of eighteen, he attended Benedictine University where he graduated Summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry. He then went on to earn his Doctorate of Optometry degree as a cum laude graduate at the Illinois College of Optometry. While there he received clinical honors and became a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society.

Dr. Restivo provides comprehensive eye care with clinical interests in dry eye syndrome, contact lens fittings, advanced ocular disease, nutrition-related health and binocular vision conditions.

Since moving to Connecticut in 2017, he has enjoyed the new opportunities for travel, hiking, playing in local sports leagues, spending time with friends and staying active in his community. When not in the office, he also continues his long time passion for music by teaching guitar part-time.
