More on Ophthalmology


The Departments of Ophthalmology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital offer patients the most advanced, comprehensive, and effective eye care. Our dedicated physicians use the latest advances in diagnostic technology and therapy to prevent, detect, and treat every conceivable disorder of the eye. This approach to ophthalmology is combined with a commitment to a wide range of clinical specializations. Comprehensive treatment is available for patients with vision problems, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, corneal disease, and a host of other ophthalmologic disorders.

Weill Cornell Ophthalmology works very closely with The William Randolph Hearst Burn Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell to provide expert eye care. Our ophthalmologists work hand-in-hand with the Burn Center's surgeons, nurses, therapists, and social workers to provide multidisciplinary and comprehensive care to patients with thermal burns, chemical burns, and Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis. The treatment for these patients may entail topical and/or oral medications – such as antibiotic/antifungal, anti-inflammatory, or lubricating medications – use of bandage contact lenses, and/or a surgical approach involving corneal transplantation or the placement of amniotic membrane on the eye surface.

Weill Cornell Ophthalmology also features a Neuro-Ophthalmology program for patients with neurologic and systemic disorders that affect vision and eye movements, such as cerebrovascular disease, migraine, demyelination, thyroid disease, myasthenia, and other auto-immune diseases. The program provides diagnosis and treatment for patients with double vision, blurred vision, transient or permanent loss of vision, or unusual visual phenomena.
