Grace Y. Wang, O.D.
I believe that vision is not merely a function that we rely on but a window to our quality of life and happiness. Many times a small improvement in the quality of vision can make a world of difference, and a thorough understanding of eye diseases can put patients’ minds more at ease. I strive to provide that kind of care for my patients. As a member of Weill Cornell Medicine Ophthalmology team, I look forward to assisting our patients to improve and understand their overall ocular health and to achieve their best vision
