Ophthalmology

The Division of Ophthalmology at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens is in the forefront of the latest developments in ophthalmology and is uniquely equipped by virtue of its general and subspecialty staff to provide state of the art care.

We have a broad spectrum of outstanding subspecialists on staff who have received their fellowship training at prestigious teaching centers from around the United States. Specialties include cataract, cornea, glaucoma, and vitreo-retina.

Our ophthalmologists operate at the NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, and the NewYork-Presbyterian David H. Koch Center which offer the latest technology in eye microscopes, phacoemulsification, vitreo-retinal surgery, and ophthalmologic laser equipment.

Our ophthalmic surgeons use the latest techniques in cataract extraction and implant surgery including:

  • Phacoemulsification
  • Premium intraocular lens technology (Toric, Extended depth of focus, Multifocal, Trifocal, etc.)
  • Small incision surgery
  • No stitch surgery
  • Adjunctive minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)

The Queens Eye Care Center is equipped with the newest instrumentation including Humphrey visual field analyzer, corneal pachymeter, corneal topographer, optical coherence tomographer, ocular biometer, ocular ultrasound, fluorescein angiography, and argon and YAG lasers, allowing us to provide state of the art care for patients.
